Saltex 2018

Briggs & Stratton at Saltex 2018

IOG Saltex 2018 (Europe’s leading turfcare show) attracted more than 9000 visitors. The event is a great opportunity to showcase out latest innovations, catch up with dealers and speak to end-users.

Once again the stand was split into two to highlight our Domestic and Vanguard Commercial Power ranges. Key models on show for the first time included the new 475iSi engine which incorporates our innovative ‘InStart®’ technology, plus the Vanguard™ 200 engine which features ‘TransportGuard™’, an exclusive technology which enables easy transportation, a great feature for the commercial turf care market.

Visitors also had an opportunity to see demonstrations of the Vanguard EFI ranges’ diagnostic software, which helps to identify any issues or errors quickly and effectively, reducing downtime in the long run.

As the visitor numbers suggest, the show was extremely well attended and we would like to thank all dealers who came along to the stand, we appreciate that not everyone can make it to the show, therefore if you would like any further information please contact your area sales manager.
