Mower market buoyant, says Etesia

Groundcare equipment manufacturer Etesia has said Open Days have boosted sales and enabled it to buck current downward economic trends.

The firm, which has supported a number of Open Days hosted by its suppliers, said the long wet summer, interspersed with warm spells, had in most areas encouraged the grass to grow long and thick, boosting demand for mowers.

UK Sales and General Manager, Les Malin said “In spite of the credit crunch and fears for the future economy, there is evidence that commercial end users and up-market consumers are still prepared to spend money. Whilst the grass is growing there is obviously a need to cut it! Feedback tells us that those in the market for new machines are either distress purchases, or from users who are fed up with unclogging the chutes on their existing mowers and want a machine that cuts and collects efficiently.”

Open days held in September included R T Machinery Ltd of Nether Winchenden, Buckinghamshire, Suffolk-based Tomlinson Groundcare and the Carlisle depot of Lloyd Ltd.
