It will also exhibit its Carbon Concept Guide Bar, which weighs 50 per cent less than a conventionally constructed guide bar, and will preview a telescopic long-reach hedge trimmer.

Visitors to the stand will also hear about its MotoMix, an ethanol-free pre-mixed fuel newly available in the UK this year, which combines high performance with engine protection.

New additions to its personal protective equipment (PPE) range will also be on show.

APF 2014 is once more at Ragley Estate, Alcester, Warwickshire, from 18-20 September.
