Stallion Success For CEuk At SALTEX: Stallion telescopic polesaws from CEuk were one of the high-profile industry products on display at this year’s IOG Saltex held at the NEC Birmingham.

Displayed to show the varying telescopic lengths of the polesaws they offered a wow factor to the CEuk stand, with Cutting-Edge founder Chris Gottfried able to demonstrate the full CEuk range including Trojan handsaws and Root Assassin shovels.

“We had a huge amount of interest in our pruning tools and shovels and it was great to be able to extend the Stallion polesaws to show the high reach pruning capability they can achieve. The exhibition is renowned for its exposure to outdoor and open space industries and our products are well-suited for many of these: – for example as a useful tool for professionals in estate, grounds and park maintenance, fencing contractors and gardeners to name just a few”.

Chris continued “I’ve always found that Saltex gives visitors the chance to see and experience our products and for us it means that we can show them the features of the product and explain just how best to operate them in different pruning scenarios.”

For many visitors to Saltex, it was also their first opportunity to see the Root Assassin shovel in its 2 size options, the original 48” length shaft and the mini 32” length shaft.

“The Root Assassin shovel is gathering pace with more professional users benefiting from its useful 2-in-1 saw and shovel action for cutting roots and digging tasks. We’ve all come across a scenario where an area of overgrown weeds needs extracting or a fence post hole leads to the unveiling of small spindly roots that flex and bow under leverage. Often deep in the ground and difficult to access, it can be a time consuming and pain staking task repeatedly hitting the roots only for them to splinter” explained Chris.

The ultra-light weight, Mini Root Assassin has been developed for users who work on sloping banks or uneven ground where it is difficult to access the root cleanly standing up. The Mini Root Assassin shovel provides a good cutting action when you are restricted to kneeling or working closer to the ground

The traditional sized Root Assassin shovel has a larger profile head and wider foot placement. The serrated teeth can be sharpened on both shovel options.

“Before the Root Assassin shovel, it would be a case of using a spade with brute strength and a handsaw or axe to break the stubborn roots, yet potentially blunting the tools used. The Root Assassin shovel combines a profiled spade head with serrated teeth on either side allowing soil, roots and debris in the ground to be cut quickly on both the push and pull stroke. Saltex has been a great show for us this year and we look forward to introducing more new customers to the CEuk range” Chris concluded.
