As well as selling a new two-leg gravel bander, launched at the show, the BLEC team also sold a Blecavator, Multiseeder and GKB Sandfiller. They are now dealing with enquiries for their new close-space disc air seeder for greens and tees.
"It was a highly successful show for us," says BLEC managing director Gary Mumby. "We took a great many enquiries to follow-up after the show and were delighted to sign some significant sales deals at Harrogate."
The three new products on the stand were the BLEC Two-leg Gravel Bander designed for compact tractors. Bands are produced at 60cm centres.
The second was the new BLEC Close-space Disc Air Seeder with 3cm spacing for work on fine turf, particularly golf greens and tees. The air-seeding system gives maximum sowing efficiency and is suitable for compact tractors from 25-45hp.
The third launch was the new BLEC Ezy-drain which will drive a 50mm diameter hole up to three metres deep into badly drained areas - pushing through to the sub-strata. The resulting hole can be filled with drainage material.
Also on the stand was the tried and trusted GKB Sandfiller which has been specifically designed for aerating and draining sports turf. This tractor-mounted scarifier and sandslitter removes and collects spoil and fills grooves with sand in one pass.
Says Gary Mumby: "Harrogate is a very important show for us and it kicks off the year well with a discerning audience of sportsturf and landscaping professionals."
