Queen’s Award-winning family business Pitchmark will unveil two new spray line marking machines at turf management show, SALTEX 2021.
Joining the iconic range will be the three-wheeled Fusion spray marker and the four-wheeled Eco Lite.
The Fusion will mimic both the style and engineering design from the bestselling unique Hybrid, but will boast a new-styled high-density polyethylene (HDPE) body to replace the steel chassis. The Fusion includes the advanced technology of the bespoke Hybrid front wheels, combined with the adjustable spray head from the Eco Club and Eco Pro.
In addition to the Fusion, the highly-popular Eco Club and Eco Pro spray line markers will see a third machine join the family, the Eco Lite. The Eco Lite will continue with the four-wheeled design and proven spray system from the aforementioned machines, but will also replace its steel chassis with the same HDPE material to complete Pitchmark’s latest design. Much like the Eco Club, the Eco Lite can hold either two 5-litre drums or one 10-litre drum of line marking paint, but there is an option for customers to add a 25-litre tank to the body of the machine.
Administering the new spray markers’ research and development process, Chairman and Founder Mark Rodman revealed the decision to move to a HDPE body was down to the increased pricing, and reduced availability, of steel as used on previous Pitchmark models.
By adding this thermoplastic polymer, the machines will still retain their strength and durability, but most importantly reducing costs and improving lead times on production and deliveries. Additionally, both the Fusion and Eco Lite will be more cost-effective than their parent models for contractors and councils, and purchase costs will be reduced for struggling grassroots clubs looking to improve their line marking across the season.
Part of the wider Pitchmark Group, sister organisation Turfix will be officially launching the two new spray marking machines at turf management show, SALTEX 2021. The annual trade show will take place on the 3rd and 4th November at the NEC Birmingham, and you can exclusively see Pitchmark’s Fusion and Eco Lite spray markers at stand E125.
