Makita UK returning to Saltex

by | Aug 22, 2017 | Community, News, Product News, Products | 0 comments

Makita UK will be returning to Saltex this year which takes places at the NEC in Birmingham 1-2 November 2017.? Makita will be on stand K190d within the BALI Zone.

The BALI Zone features and promotes leading BALI Registered Affiliate and Contractor members.? Also confirmed for 2017 are Boningale Nurseries, M&M Timber, Green-tech, Ground Control and British Sugar TOPSOIL.

The Makita UK stand will showcase the ever-growing garden machinery range suitable for professional landscaping contractors, groundsmen and forestry workers.

?We are delighted to be joining the BALI Zone at this year?s Saltex and to be teaming up with other leading names in the landscaping industry,? said Mark Earles, business development manager, Makita UK: ?Our cordless range will be taking centre stage but visitors will be able to learn about the entire range including our petrol and electric models.?

The 18v battery platform makes it economically viable for the tool owner as there is the option to purchase the ?body only? version of the tool if you already have the battery. This battery platform has set an industry benchmark but still continues to expand with innovations such as the twin-18v battery 36v application.

Using battery powered grounds care machines means that exhaust emissions are zero ? petrol engine exhaust fumes are eliminated and the risk of ground contamination from spilt petrol and oil is removed altogether. Many Makita grounds-care machines offer a considerable reduction in vibration and can be used all day without harm to the operator.? Where traditional machines make an awful noise, the battery powered Makita tools are significantly quieter whilst still delivering a professional performance. This quiet approach means teams can work around parks, schools, hospitals and cemeteries without causing nuisance and annoyance.

SALTEX is the UK’s national event for grounds care, sports turf, amenities, estates and green space management, as well as turf care and specialist machinery, landscaping and playgrounds.?
