Another successful show at STMA 2018 for Allett

From January 18th to January the 19th, Roland Hall (Allett USA CEO), Jeff Parker (Empire Turf Equipment) and our very own Leigh Bowers were proudly showcasing the Allett brand at the 2018 STMA (Sports Turf Managers Association). The STMA Annual Conference & Exhibition allows members to share information with other successful members of the sports turf industry, at exciting locations. Visitors to the show attended educational seminars, hands-on workshops and got to experience some of the latest technology on display including our latest Liberty 'Lithium Ion' battery-powered range of cylinder mowers. Groundskeepers were also able to tour professional, college and municipal facilities, which offered a range of valuable insights into venues and the latest mower technology. At Allett, we always strive to achieve the best machine, the best cut and the best lawn stripes! This is why we believe it is so important to attend events such as the STMA Annual Conference & Exhibition and be proud members of the Sports Turf Managers Association. Along with USA-based Roland Hall, our very own Leigh Bowers made the long trip out to Texas to work alongside Roland, promoting the Allett brand at the show. Once again we received a lot of exciting enquiries whilst we were there, from a variety of sports turf managers ranging from local parks to huge sporting arenas. With creative and aesthetically pleasing lawn stripes being almost part of the criteria of high-class groundskeeping for sports pitches and sports stadiums, the Allett cylinder mowers (or reel mowers as they're more frequently known in America) are a perfect match. Our Allett mowers are famous for their striping capabilities, as they are fitted with both front and rear rollers which aid striping and allow for a much more uniform and crisp lawn stripe. Cylinder mowers, by their very design, give a much closer cut to the lawn – from as low as 2.4mm, up to 44.5mm. As an added advantage, the C Range machine in the Allett Professional range comes with an interchangeable cutting cylinder, which can be easily replaced by a variety of lawnmower accessories in the form of easily changeable cartridges, for a variety of turf maintenance jobs such as removing thatch, aeration, and scarification. Another successful show at STMA 2018 for AllettAfter the show Leigh, Roland and Jeff travelled around America running various demonstrations of Allett cylinder mowers at many different sports stadiums. This was a real eye-opener for Leigh seeing the way the different groundskeepers work compared to the UK. Upon his return, Leigh Bowers (Allett Mowers Sales Director) said: "The STMA show continues to be one of the highlights of the Groundskeepers calendar in America. Allett USA headed up by Roland Hall, were showcasing the Allett C34 34” turf maintenance system with interchangeable cartridges, along with the RM34 34” Stadium Rotary Mower, and our new Liberty 43 battery powered self-propelled cylinder mower with its very own set of interchangeable turf maintenance cartridges. The show was busy with high levels of interest from the Baseball, American Football, Soccer and Contractor markets. We have seen great levels of success in the American market enabling Groundskeepers to achieve great striping effects whilst developing healthier, longer lasting turf" Roland Hall of Allett USA can be contacted on or +1 (803) 226-5036
