0 Turf and snow at Saltex

RMX 680Broadwood International displayed five ranges of turf, snow and amenity equipment at Saltex 2012.

The current harsh economic climate has seen councils forced to reduce their mowing frequency. This has resulted in the requirement for grass cutting equipment to withstand more demanding applications and longer grass.

The Wessex ProLine range boasts six models including a new Wessex ProLine 480 hydraulically folding roller mower which was seen at the show. The machine is available as 3 point linkage mounted or trailed on the popular ProGlider chassis and is ideal for councils, contractors, airfields, race tracks and other large amenity areas.

Available for delivery in the spring of 2013, the RMX-560 and RMX-680 are the ideal choice for councils, contractors, sports complexes or any other large amenity areas. All the features and benefits of the well-known Wessex ProLine RMX range have been incorporated into one triple deck machine, which will reduce mowing time and increase output and profitability.

The Wessex display also included the ProLine TGX out-front flail mower and the Wessex Country range with a new log splitter, trailer and snow blade. This year Wessex celebrates 50 years of manufacturing in the UK with a change of livery to green and orange.

In the SnowEx range two new salt spreaders were on show. The new SnowEx drop spreader is ideal for treating pavements and sidewalks and other restricted areas. There are two capacities equipped with a unique flow control system, offering 'gate-free' controlled material dispersal. Using brine solutions for winter maintenance, rather than salt/grit spreading is an increasingly popular practice.

The SnowEx VSS 1000 brine spray system offers versatility and caters for all demands for spraying de-icing material. The V-Pro and V-Maxx were also at the show. These are high capacity machines designed specifically for larger pick-ups and flatbed trucks.

A number of other pedestrian brine and drop spreaders were also displayed. Three new products feature in the BroomEx range of pedestrian power brooms and the TurfEx equipment include the Spread 'n' Spray lightweight, compact, spreader sprayer.
