DJ Turfcare, the leading niche-market product supplier for the grounds care industry, shows a range of exciting new products at SALTEX this year.
The second-generation ATOM EDGERS, both professional and domestic - with new Mitsubishi engines - will be on show for the first time.
They are tougher, easier to use and have improved controls.
The Professional Edger Pro 580 is aimed at local authorities for kerb use and the Atom 450 Deluxe is designed for gardeners with large areas of lawn to edge.
Showing for the first time in the UK is the PLUGGER PL855 Pro HD which has an optional stand-on ride-behind platform called the Step Saver. This aeration machine features hydrostatic-drive and uses both solid and hollow tines. It is highly manoeuvrable and is ideal for superior grass maintenance in difficult areas, being easy to transport and handle. It is particularly useful for large areas of fine turf, and bowling clubs have found the Plugger invaluable in reviving compacted greens.
Also on the DJ Turfcare stand will be the updated ATOM BUNKER EDGER - now celebrating its fifth year as a leading product for the golf industry from the DJ golf and grounds care range. It has a new Mitsubishi two-stroke engine.
he BUSHRANGER EDGER (seen for the first time at Windsor last year) for turf professionals will also be on show. Aimed primarily at local authorities and those looking after large landscaped areas, the Bushranger Edger is ideal for producing razor sharp edges, especially up close to raised paving because of its drop-down wheel.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission finds the Bushranger can cope with the demanding conditions found in war cemeteries where immaculate conditions and neat edges are imperative.
Also on show will be the BTME award-winning MO BACTER - an organic lawn fertiliser that destroys moss and eliminates debris by bacterial action, avoiding the need to rake. It has been featured on BBC TV's Beechgrove Garden series in Scotland.
BIO-LIME, from Viano, is an ideal autumn or spring fertiliser for combating a low pH, sweetening the soil to make it less acid and encouraging healthy strong grass growth, while discouraging moss. It contains magnesium to create a thick sward which helps maintain it in peak condition through the winter months.
RECOVERY, also from the Viano stable of organic fertiliser products, is formulated to help turf overcome stressful conditions associated with drought, flood or overplay. It is an ideal autumn or spring fertiliser to give grass a real boost. It also contains magnesium and this combination gives grass the ability to bounce back from stress.
Other products include MOSSGO, a powerful microbiocidal liquid which quickly and effectively removes moss from hard surfaces, and acts as a long-term preventative on areas including artificial sports surfaces, pathways, timber and glasshouses.
