We are off to the Brigstock International Horse Trials at Rockingham Castle. The dates for your diary are 17th – 19th May 2013. As a sponsor we will of course be making a spectacle of ourselves and showing our vast range of ground care equipment. During the event two of our RTV’s will be used by the organisers to travel the course and generally stay on top of things.
Rockingham Castle will have a new course set in the beautiful Great Park overlooking the Welland Valley. It is currently under construction having been designed by Philip Herbert. Philip has a reputation for building imaginative and creative courses featuring jumps enjoyed by riders and spectators alike. His skills were honed on the international courses at Burghley.

There will be something for everyone. For international riders there is a cross country course of the highest standard with challenging and exciting fences. Dressage, show jumping, entertainment for children in the form of a bouncy castle, climbing wall, animals and Xtreme Falconry will all be going on.

Whether it’s demanding daily professional use, or for your garden at home, ride-on mowers deliver unmatched performance, efficiency and finish whatever the size of the task. We handle a very wide range of products from three of the top manufacturers; Kubota, Stiga and Mountfield.
Reliable Ride-on Mowers
Why those manufacturers? Well we don’t only supply the products, we also support them and we know that these manufacturers produce the most reliable machines and that therefore they are the most cost effective.
Cut and Collect Mowers
The technology varies, we handle traditional cut-and-collect tractors, mulch mowers and zero turn mowers. Dependent upon your application and in some cases personal preference you will opt for the machine that you think is best for you.
Mulch or Collect?
One choice you will be confronted with is mulch versus bag. Do you want to collect and then dispose of your grass cuttings or do you invest in a mulch mower that has additional blades which produce very small cuttings that are not collected? The environmental lobby will always favour the mulch solution arguing that you are returning the nutrients and moisture in the clippings to the soil which is good for the grass. Keen gardeners worry about the possible build up of “thatch” due to the clippings being left on the lawn. This is not really a factor as grass leaves are around 90% water so they breakdown quickly. Whatever your preference you can see both types of machine in our showroom and try them out to satisfy yourself.
