Something very special to kick
start 2018

Kersten have just launched a New Sweeper for the New Year!

The all new KM16560 sweeper from Kersten has a few features we think you are really going to like…

Floating Collector Box
The collector box on most sweepers is rigidly fixed to the front of the sweeper, when you approach a bump or slope, this results in the sweeper losing contact with the ground, leaving some un-swept surface.

– Our new collector box design allows the collector to float on arms from the rear of the sweeper, allowing it to move independently of the brush.

This ensures that the brush remains in contact with the ground at all times.
Additional benefits include;

less wear to the caster wheels, less impact on the linkage, and a cleaner finish.


Optional KM Controls

What are KM Controls? I hear you ask…

KM controls adjust the brush automatically to keep the same pressure with the ground!

This means that the brush can automatically cope with undulations and hills for the ultimate sweeping performance. But even better than that, wear on the brush from excessive pressure is eliminated, giving your brushes a much longer life, and protecting the machine from heavy handed operators!

We hope you love our new sweeper!

UK wide demonstrations can be arranged all year round. All our machines are sold and backed up by our dealer network.

Cleaning Block Paving under Garden Centre plant display Benches

August 2017
Before and after Kersten WeedbdushCleaning Block Paving under Garden Centre plant display Benches

Kersten was asked to show how to clean moss and debris from brick block paving under the plant display benches in the outdoor sales area of a high-profile garden centre.

By using the Kersten WKB 40 Weedbrush and K1500 power unit, visual results speak for themselves.  The area was cleaned in seconds, then the moss and dirt were removed off with an air broom.

Kersten can save days of hand brushing and jet washing with none of the resultant mess.

When demonstrating Kersten equipment chemicals are not required so an immediate cost saving results.

Kersten is at the forefront of chemical free weed control, offering solutions to stop or reduce chemical input.

Call 0118 986 92 53 to discuss our product range and arrange a demonstration.

Case Study;  Forage Mowers from Kersten.
2

Sometimes we find customers want to cut grass or other crops at the surface and leave the stem intact and undamaged. Perhaps to keep the crop for hay or straw.

There are two main ways this can be done.3

Traditionally, a cutting bar with a set of reciprocating knives would be used for the task. This tool is a very reliable and low cost way to do it.  The cutters can be powered by machines with quite low horsepower such as the K-series range of two wheel tractors from Kersten.

Advantages also include the ability to use this tool on steep banks behind a pedestrian machine, or to offset it to get right under an overhang, such as a Solar panel.

The alternative method is with a drum, or disk mower.  This requires much more power to operate, and therefore a larger tool carrier, which is more expensive. But has the advantages of speed and the ability to follow contours.  It will not get clogged up easily when moving through more dense forage.

4

Kersten offer both solutions as attachments for our pedestrian range of machines and also as attachments for many types of tractor.

Once you have cut the crop, it is then possible to rake it into rows, allowing it to dry and then bale it for storage.
5-2

Attachments for these jobs can also be purchased for the Kersten UBS Hydro range of two wheel tractors.

All our attachments are backed up by our UK dealer network and a free demonstration is available on request.

Kersten machines were featured on two of our dealer’s stands this year.

Thanks very much to Agri Services and Fraser C Robb for showcasing the products! The four-day show was extremely busy, with a great deal of interest in the Kersten range from a mix of customers.

We spoke to Councils, Housing Associations, Contractors and many other types of business; several were already customers and looking to expand their Kersten fleet!

It was great to hear so many positive comments from customers putting their machines to good use across Scotland and even beyond.

Agri-Services stand was occupied by three of our best selling products. All for chemical free weed removal. All the products (shown in the picture above) are available for demonstration, so please contact us to see how we can help deal with your site maintenance problems.

I am looking forward to speaking with many of the people we saw at the show over the coming weeks. Thanks for taking the time to come and see us!

Meyer – The Revolution’s Here!

April 2017,

n1

Last week we visited the Danish Meyer Distributor near Copenhagen to discover what exciting new product developments we can offer our customers.

The event in Copenhagen was possibly the best Meyer Conference so far.  There are plenty of new products for our customers to get excited about.  Below are some of the new ones I can talk about.  There are also some great things in the pipeline, which I cannot reveal just yet.

In the new season, we will be launching our latest plough for 4x4s’

n2

This Revolutionary new plough uses Ultra-light High Strength steel to make it even lighter than our current Ploughs.

  • It has an industry leading 22.5 cm ground clearance when lifted to prevent bottoming out.
  • The drop speed can be easily adjusted to suit your style.
  • The Patented Cable Management system makes wiring up the plough fast and simple

Introducing The Only Box Plough That Will Go To Any Length To Get The Snow

n3

This new Plough allows you to change your approach when it comes to tight squeezes and open spaces without getting out of the cab.

  • This containment plough is adjustable from 1.5m – 2.4m width
  • It can flip over for efficient back dragging
  • It fits Telehandlers, Skid Steers and Front Loaders

I can’t wait to launch the other products later in the year!

For more information on these ploughs, or to organize a demonstration please get in touch on 0118 9869 253 or email info@kerstenuk.com
