Firms get ready for What Kit? Live

Inaugural show reflects importance of green space maintenance

By Jez Abbott What Kit? Live fires into action this year with exhibitors using the show to grandstand new gear that meets the ever-growing emphasis on landscape and horticulture. Huskisson Bobcat of Liverpool will show a range of tractor kit including loaders and telescopic handlers at Reaseheath College, Nantwich, Cheshire, on 4 July. Managing director Brian Davies said: “We normally target building sectors but our attendance this year reflects the growing importance of landscape across all sectors of building.” What Kit? Live — billed as the first event for buyers of machinery for grounds upkeep, arboriculture and landscaping based on kit demos — is set to feature a host of big names including GreenMech and Sherriff Amenity. Chester-based Turner Groundscare branch manager Brian Spruce said he would be showing kit from firms like John Deere, Gianni Ferrari and Turfmech. “This is a good opportunity to raise the standard of the business in the north-west region,” he said. Visitor Stuart Derbyshire, a senior purchasing manager for Glendale Managed Services, said he was looking forward to testing and comparing kit “all in one day”.
