SALTEX to celebrate 75 years of groundscare equipment

9.45pm 19th October 2021 - Exhibitions & Conferences

75 years of groundscare equipment will be on display at SALTEX’s 75th anniversary show, which takes place at the NEC, Birmingham on November 3 and 4.

The new show feature, entitled a History of Groundscare Equipment (stand C065), will display vintage and classic groundscare machinery and tools covering 75 years of the profession. With so many machines being showcased, it will certainly offer a nostalgic walk down memory lane for visitors.

Vintage enthusiasts will be in for a treat as the collections will include a wide array of mowers, sprinklers, rain gauges, sorrel rollers, drag brushes and soil testers.

The feature is being staged by the Hall & Duck Trust which is an internationally recognised organisation, preserving all manner of artefacts from lawn mower development throughout the years. With a collection comprising of over 1000 machines dating back to the 1830s, the Hall & Duck Trust is a respected authority on the history of groundscare equipment, and founders Andrew and Mike will happily take the time to talk all things mowers at SALTEX 2021.

Furthermore, the history of SALTEX and Grounds Management Association (GMA) will be outlined throughout the two-day event on the GMA Hub.

After an enforced year off due to Covid, this year’s SALTEX celebrations promise to be particularly special. Have you registered yet? Pre-registration to SALTEX 2021 is essential this year. Attendees must print off their badges for entry to the show.

The safety of all exhibitors, partners, visitors, contractors, and staff is the GMA’s highest priority. For more information on Covid safety measures please visit
