During the lively show the two guys were on their usual walk round; checking in on their speaker systems and it just so happened that behind our stand were some of the aforementioned speakers. Noticing that we were about to launch into a demonstration of the post driver they watched from afar as the machine drove a 4” stake into the ground. Sean ventured over to find out just how the Australian manufacturing machine worked. After all, a method like this would mean the days of sledgehammering were over. Upon us discovering the speakers were installed using scaffold poles we recognised the potential to save the guys a huge amount of time during install. After demoing the machine on a scaffold pole for the pair, they decided to invest, citing “It’s a big investment for a relatively small company, but it’s money well-spent. There are other versions of petrol post knockers on the market, but as the old saying goes: you buy cheap, you buy twice.”
Working away at over 100 shows per year the duo sees it all - from old Hot Rods on the beach, to the Great Yorkshire Show, and Southport Flower Show, with the latter being their highlight. Away from travelling the length and breadth of the country Michael also involves himself in wiring machinery up that he learnt from his time as an electrician, though when it comes to relaxing it’s in the pub with his family. Whereas Sean spends his spare time as a DJ, including the notoriously cheesy weddings (his words, not ours!). Thank you, Sean and Michael, for taking the time to chat to us on a very cold day at Midlands Machinery Show 2019.
