Six manufacturers will be putting products through their paces in daily demonstrations.

Starting each morning off from 10.00 to 10.15 will be Avant Techno with its Leguan Lifts. Leguan spider lifts are known for their exceptional off-road capabilities, and industry-leading gradeability.

At 11.00 to 11.15, sponsors, SGL will be demonstrating their new product – the LED50 that is equipped with SmartBox and the latest LED technology. Due to its compactness the LED50 is perfect to use on high wear areas such as goal mouths and corner areas and according to SGL perfect for clubs that want the agronomical benefits while also striving for sustainability.

Next on display from 11.30 to 11.45 will be the Campey AllTrec 100% Electric Mower. With no CO2-emission the machine also distinguishes itself through the minimal sound it produces.

This will be followed at 12.00 to 12.15 by another mower – this time the Overton Rival Zero Turn – the latest mower in Mean Green Mowers’ new ‘evolution’ series.

A robot mower will be the next to show its paces at 12.30 to 12.45 – this time the Kress RTK Robot Mower. With no requirement for boundary wires or on-site antennas this robot mower can tackle larger areas than previously associated with the robotic solution.

An electric solution for loading is the last demonstration of the day at 13.00 to 13.15 when Avant Techno will put their Electric E6 Loader under the scrutiny of visitors.

Avant was the first manufacturer to introduce a full-electric, battery-powered compact loader series to the market. Although the e series is electric, according to Avant, it offers the same power and properties as the Avant 500 series which is equipped with a diesel engine.

In addition to the daily demonstrations industry experts will be on hand to offer advice on green technology and how it could benefit current working practices.
