Planning for a brighter future

These are challenging times for us all. First and foremost, everyone at SALTEX hopes that you, your colleagues, businesses, and your families are keeping safe and well. Recognising the challenges in front of us, we wish to assure you that planning for SALTEX 2020 continues to be in full swing.

After recent consultation with our strategic partners we are hopeful that the situation we face today will have passed and that SALTEX will take place on 4 and 5 November. We understand though that this is an evolving situation. Recent exhibitions at the NEC that were scheduled to take place this March and April have already promoted the fact that they have rescheduled for October and November this year. This provides us with added confidence to continue preparations for SALTEX 2020.

SALTEX has faced many challenges in its 74-year history and everyone associated with the exhibition – organisers, exhibitors, visitors – the groundscare industry, has always shown resilience. It is this strength and unity that defines this fantastic industry.

We are ever mindful of the government advice and guidance. We live in hope that after this period of darkness, SALTEX and the groundscare industry will be a shining light as we plan for a brighter future and return to better days ahead.

4212878354?profile=RESIZE_710xSALTEX 2020 will be a great opportunity for the industry to come together, to re-unite and to look ahead to the future. It is our hope that we can all gather as one and that SALTEX’s 75th anniversary will be the most vibrant and celebrated event in its long history.

In the meantime, we have already taken the necessary measures to ensure that our team can continue the work required to deliver SALTEX this November, while at the same time planning for every eventuality.

Of course, it is necessary to adapt to the uncertainty we are all experiencing, as government advice can change at any time. We are committed to keeping you up to date every step of the way.

Please take care of yourselves and loved ones and remember to offer extra support to those most vulnerable. Try and maintain a positive outlook and we look forward to brighter days ahead – because they will come.

"I bought a Parker brand leaf blower for my assistant a few months ago. It was less than £80 and presumably made in China. It is well-made and is a very good leaf blower. It started second pull straight from the box. It is so far at least as good as…"

"There is nowhere to screw a grease tube on. That's why you need to take the gearbox cover off and apply grease directly.
 Suggest you take another look at the machine. We know this is correct thing to do as we have 4 of them. "

"I meant taking a screw out then screwing the grease tube on to top up, the battery hsa 86 does not have this

"This is the battery hsa 86 Nick it only has 2 torx screws holding a plastic casing over the gearbox, the gearbox gets the odd bit of cuttings in which is not ideal as it is not sealed like the petrol ones."

"Agree Vic it's very impressive and high end quality. But my point is that as they use as stated "a lot of semi-conductors", then there is a good chance some of those were made in China. I see nothing wrong with that, Shenzen is top end when it comes…"

Chinese made equipment

Hi everyone, Personally I would not be buying anything made in China, Because of the covid 19  virus I believe there will be a kickback at chinese products and thus availability of parts. Never mind conspiracy theories, the chinese have covered up…
