Targeted at greenkeepers, groundsmen and contractors, the TurfSavr de-thatches, overseeds and fertilises, covering a 22-inch-wide swathe in a single pass.

The swanky red machine is made in the US by SourceOne, designer of the Plugger aerator.

Golf course and estate managers with many hedges and bushes to cut will be interested in the firm's second new launch, the Elephant's Trunk.

The machine reduces back, shoulder, neck and arm strain, and cuts the weight of any hedgetrimmer to 1kg, says the firm.

"Slip on the harness, clip on the hedgetrimmer and away you go," said a spokesman for Green Technology of Belgium, which has signed a UK deal with DJ Turfcare.

  • Also being unveiled at BTME is Recovery from Viano's organic range of fertilisers. The granules restore turf suffering from drought or waterlogging and are based on organic manure and magnesium.
