The CWC Stig Returns to BTME with Complete Weed Control
BTME in January 2014 marks the return of ‘The Stig Driving Challenge’ on the Complete Weed Control stand, where visitors can also see the range of weed and ice control services that the company offer.
Visitors to Stand C48 will be invited to set a ‘hot lap’ on the Top Gear track with everyone’s times going up on the Leaderboard. The CWC Stig will set the ‘to beat time’ each morning with prizes being offered for the fastest time set from each day.
Following the successful launch of the Weed-IT machine at IOG SALTEX earlier this year, which sees the machine being available to purchase in the UK for the first time, CWC will be looking to appoint suitable dealers in order to create a network that can provide regional back-up and support for both the Weed-IT machine and the chosen carrier vehicle.
Following the show, on-site demonstrations will be available as well as bespoke builds for task specific machinery.
“We feel that it is now time for the weed spraying industry in the UK to step up to the plate and face its collective responsibilities to protect the environment in which we operate,” says Ian Graham, CWC’s Managing Director. “Making the technology available to everyone removes the excuse for the blanket spraying of huge areas of hard surfaces. With the changes in the label for glyphosate, access to this state-of-the-art machinery has never been required more.”
Also on show will be the company’s baseguard product. baseguard allows water and nutrients through its porous structure to the roots below, negating the issues associated with compaction. Tree wells are often choked with leaves, cigarette ends and other debris, especially when fitted with iron grilles. baseguard, however, fills these voids and can be installed in conjunction with grilles when the tree is planted, or as a retrofit.
In recent months the baseguard system has been used for much larger applications than simply tree surrounds, with access roads to sports pitches at Premier League training grounds as well as footpaths and play areas at schools being just some of its uses.
