The 19th show was held yesterday, at the RT Machinery premises in rural Buckinghamshire and received in excess of three hundred visitors - the largest number in its history.

The popular event provides an opportunity for exhibitors to showcase a wide range of products to the RT Machinery customer base including greenkeepers, estates managers, local authorities and grounds managers. There was a packed programme of working demonstrations throughout the day which included specific banks mowing, as well as ride and drive areas for visitors to test and move machines of interest.

Pitchcare Editor, Kerry Haywood caught up with Managing Director and Owner, Richard Taylor who commented: "The show gets bigger every year and it's with thanks to the support from manufacturers that can happen - we really appreciate their commitment. The show has evolved into one of the best one-day events in the country, and a big part of its success is that visitors can speak direct to the demonstrator and get hands on with equipment."

Les Malin, Managing Director of Etesia UK said: "I would love to see this style show across the country. If there were more of these one-day events, they would be more important for me as a business, than the static shows that we currently attend."
