BlueBird takes maiden flight at BTME

Published on: 11/02/2020


The successful UK launch of BlueBird turf care equipment, supported by E.P. Barrus, took place at what is seen by many in the sports turf industry as the ‘start of their year’, the BTME show in Harrogate.

Showcasing the future of turf care equipment to an audience of turf managers, golf club owners and decision makers - BlueBird’s new and exclusive range of 125v battery powered machines designed and built for professionals took centre stage on the stand. 

The initial range includes an 18” and 22” power rake, a 17.5” and 19” aerator and a 20” hover mower. 

The hover mower is set to change the way golf courses are maintained, with a best in class centre of gravity making manoeuvrability on hills and around bunker edges a breeze; ultimately eliminating inefficiencies with an electric performance equal to petrol.


The lower noise level of the 125v Lithium-ion range allows you to continue to work during noise restricted times and in noise restricted areas. Other key advantages include no exhaust fumes or odour when operating, no fuel costs, low maintenance, reduced downtime, significantly improved productivity and profitability and the machines are more environmentally friendly.

 “We were very pleased and encouraged by the interest in BlueBird at BTME. The 125v hover mower stole the show but the whole range of Lithium-ion and petrol- powered equipment saw a great deal of interest throughout the three days.” commented Phil Noble, Divisional Sales Manager, Lawn and Garden, E P Barrus.

“It was also interesting to see potential European customers taking the time to travel over to the show to see our machines. Our mission is to supply our customers with the best, most durable equipment combined with superior customer service.’’ said Mike Evans, President, BlueBird “and we look forward to working with Barrus to deliver the brand in the UK and for us to expand into Europe.”

BlueBird, supported by E P Barrus, provides commercial, rental and residential users with some of the most reliable turf care power equipment in the industry- including aerators, power rakes, overseeders, sod cutters, stump grinders and hover mowers.

BlueBird sold its first power rake to a small landscaping company in 1961 and has been producing superior-engineered commercial products built for professionals ever since.
