Sales and marketing manager Mike King said the IOG had got everything right - a two-day show, attracting high-calibre visitors to a centrally located venue. "Our offer of a Briteliner Arrow linemarking machine and SupaStadia marking paints was a real hit, and we had massive interest in the Supaturf SWOZI GPS-guided linemarking system as well as our new range of artificial surface paints," he said. "The buzz extended right through the first day and well into the second, keeping us busy from early doors to close." This year has been one of major product innovation for Vitax Amenity. Featuring prominently at the show was the new TFS25 tank-free spray marking machine and the Supaturf superior- performing artificial turf paint system that's easy to apply for both permanent and temporary demands. Classen has introduced a new hydrostatic overseeder to the Classsen range of turf care equipment, showcased by Schiller Grounds Care during SALTEX. Self propelled, with hydrostatic drive for smooth, consistent power flow, the Classen HTS-20H is packed with features to make seeding easier. A unique 40lb/18kg floating seed box follows the contours of bumpy, undulating terrain or locks in place in any of 10 depth settings for seeding on hills and slopes. The result is perfect germination. More blades also equal better germination and this new overseeder offers more seed rows placed closer together to produce thicker turf, faster. Bosch Professional Lawn and Garden exhibited the full range of cordless garden tools and previewed plans for 2016, including a mobile power unit, hedgecutters and leaf blowers as well as lawnmowers, brush-cutters and a longer- life 36v 9.0Ah weatherproof battery. All products in the Bosch Professional range share the same concept - powered by Lithium-ion batteries they perform as petrol equivalents but with low noise, low vibrations and savings on running costs. They are also more convenient to use and maintain than petrol models and easy to start up.
