demopark + demogolf 2015 – Optimised capacity utilisation through multifunctional machinery

Cost effectiveness sets the pace in professional grounds and green space care. The smaller the maintenance company, the more important the capacity utilisation of the vehicles and machinery becomes. That is why multifunctionality is an absolute trend, as can be seen from the numerous innovations at this year’s demopark + demogolf exhibition, which takes place from 21 to 23 June 2015 in Eisenach.

Powerful combination for summer and winter


Two implement carriers and compact sweepers were awarded one of the coveted demopark innovation medals. A strong advantage of these manoeuvrable, compact implement carriers is that with their permitted maximum weight of 3.5 tonnes and a class B driving licence they can be used on footpaths and pavements. The mounted equipment can be changed surprisingly fast and without the use of any tools. In next to no time, a sweeper becomes a professional mower that conveys the cut grass directly to the universal container. Once the mowing season is over, it also only takes a few minutes to dismount the mower and mount a snow shield at the front plus a spreader at the back.

Thanks to the heated and air-conditioned cabin, the use of a powerful combination like this one is also economical for the maintenance of paths in winter. And best of all: modern camera systems ensure that the driver not only always has the area at the rear in his field of vision but can also follow work progress at the suction nozzle live, e.g. when snow, leaves or cut grass are sucked up. Clear displays, ergonomic control levers and a suspension seat provide additional motivation for professionals during maintenance work.

Construction machinery with multiple benefits

The aspect of multifunctionality is also gaining ground in the development of construction machinery. For instance, walking excavators combined with width-adjustable track systems are already available.

In this way, the stability can be improved even more during operation on slopes and the ground protected at the same time. High engine output makes it possible to also equip such a tracked implement carrier with extremely performance-hungry mounted equipment such as mulchers and harvesters. Just as innovative is the development of an articulated mobile excavator that can be converted with just one click to a fully functional wheel loader including all intuitive operating features.

Anyone looking for multifunctional solutions for larger municipalities in regions prone to flooding is also at the right place at demopark + demogolf. High-mobility off-road implement carriers are exhibited there, which are suitable for flood and disaster control as well as conventional winter services

Largest open-air exhibition throughout the industry in Europe

As the largest European open-air exhibition for the professional use of machinery for green space care, gardening and landscaping, and the municipal sector, demopark + demogolf provides a unique opportunity to experience the practical, application-oriented operation of machinery and equipment. The exhibition is organised by GzF (Gesellschaft zur Förderung des Maschinenbaus mbH), a wholly-owned subsidiary of VDMA. More information can be found at
