About Classic Plant & Machinery magazine
The magazine is now into its 14th volume and was created by Peter Love originally, who is also the current editor. It came about because of an overflow of material from the ultra-successful Tractor & Machinery, also jointly created by Peter Love in 1994.
CPM is a unique magazine devoted to all types of plant and construction machinery from all eras. It concentrates mainly on the UK and Republic of Ireland, but every month we also look at things from North America, Europe and even Asia.
The magazine is very much devoted to the driver - past, present and future - and the current and past owner/operator. It's a place where memories are written down, judgements made about which machines were good and bad and characters, who were very much part of the industry at the time. The magazine is a place where retired workers can meet up and correspond through our pages.
Whether it be a rope excavator or a hydraulic loading shovel, all are covered - from the history of the manufacturer to individual machines and those who preserve them. All the market leaders such as JCB, Volvo, Caterpillar and Terex are looked at each month.
The preservation scene is fully covered - from the leading exhibitions to working events all over the world, where you will see steam rollers, motor rollers, loading shovels of all kinds, excavators, cranes, bulldozers, scrapers and large earthmovers. If you're interested in models, we have a section each month telling you what's new and the older classic models.
Buying & Selling Machinery
It's just the place to buy and sell plant and machinery of all sorts, and we attend modern and antique sales. We report on what's going up and down price wise and help you find that missing part you need to complete your renovation. CPM also gives you the most comprehensive diary of sales and events you will find to attend in your area.
