Allett Launch the C34E at the Home of England Rugby
The team at Allett couldn’t have been more excited to launch the C34 Evolution mower at Twickenham last week (14th May 2019). On May 14th, to help showcase the brand new Allett C34E battery-powered mower, Allett invited industry leaders to the Twickenham Rugby Stadium and held informal talks on the brand new launch and sustainability. Attendance at the Twickenham Rugby Stadium consisted of football, cricket, rugby, royal households, Oxford & Cambridge University colleges and a variety of current and potential Allett dealers. Allett Managing Director, Austin Jarrett spoke on the company’s battery machine approach and the technology behind the company’s new electronic machine. Austin continued by emphasising the health and safety benefits of non-particulate power and sustainable mower solutions, which work with zero emissions, low noise and vibration levels and minimum maintenance. Keith Kent, Twickenham Rugby Stadium’s Head Groundsman, spoke about his time and experience maintaining a world-class pitch and how he provides the same standard no matter what occasion the pitch is being used for (including international rugby, leisure events or even schools tournaments). The third speaker of the event, sustainability expert Professor David Stubbs, discussed the challenges in the industry of maintaining sustainable products. Using a case study of the London 2012 Olympic Games, David’s talk embraced climate change and how sport can aid in addressing major global ecological difficulties.

The industry is rapidly changing and while we aim to be at the forefront we will only be launching twenty C34E this year.
