Schiller Grounds Care UK will be out in force at Saltex with the launch of several new products in the Classen, Little Wonder, Steiner and Mantis ranges.
On this year's stand for the first time will be the new Classen RA21 walk behind reciprocating aerator, affectionately known as 'the beast'.
It promises light weight and simplicity combined with top performance, punching clean holes in tough soil without additional weights.
Schiller have developed a new Little Wonder Advanced Performance Vacuum which offers a professional solution to clearing up and collecting stones, bottles, cans, leaves and other debris. It's ideal for cleaning industrial and residential areas, commercial sites and car parks.
Based on the tried and tested Little Wonder HPV, the new Little Wonder APV is self propelled.
A new Little Wonder outfront hydrostatic rotary brushcutter is designed to navigate through weeds, heavy brush and vegetation with infinitely variable forward and reverse drive. It's an excellent machine for contract and hire use.
The new Steiner 440 4-wheel drive tractor will be launched to the UK market at Saltex.
These are powerful, heavy-duty yet compact articulated tractors that are exceptionally versatile and built to last.
Highly manoeuvrable, Steiner tractors are ideally suited to grounds care and landscaping, be it mowing, towing, snow ploughing or sweeping using a wide range of optional attachments.
The name Mantis needs little introduction and the brand is well represented with a host of new products.
The Mantis BunkerMaster is developed from the perenn ial favourite Mantis tiller for maintaining sand bunkers on the golf course.
Even with its 4-stroke 25cc engine it is a lightweight tool, offering a low cost and versatile solution to quick redistribution of the sand as well as being a very capable de-thatcher.
Mantis has always represented high quality and value for money and the new electric and cordless garden tools are no exception.
Two electric chainsaws, recently tested by tree surgeons, get top marks for general tree limb cutting and logging.
Cordless hedge trimmers join the range, with a long reach articulated version for easy maintenance of tall hedges.
A cordless shrub and grass shear is a handy tool and a 2.5 metre pole pruner will reach those high branches without a cable to get entangled.
For dealing with autumn's leaves there's an electric blower/shredder vacuum and come winter a choice of two snow blowers.
