bauma 2016 in München: Superlative for heavy machinery

Bauma in Munich, the industry leader among trade fairs for construction machinery, excavators, agricultural machinery etc., ended a week ago.

Also the team of TruckScout24 has visited the bauma 2016, to learn about the newest trends and of course, to look at the impressive heavy machines of the mining industry …
