Spaldings has added Honda Industrial pumps and generators to its extensive product range
Portable generators and water pumps needed for everyday or emergency use can be purchased with the renowned service back-up provided by direct sales specialist Spaldings following the company’s appointment as a Honda Industrial dealer with national reach.
Spaldings will display selected products from the range upon its return to the Saltex exhibition at the NEC Birmingham on 1-2 November.
As with other products handled by Spaldings, Honda petrol engine powered pumps and generators can be purchased online, via a telesales team or through a local representative for next day delivery from the £11 million-worth of stock held at the company’s warehouse in Lincoln.
“We have 60 years’ experience of efficiently picking, packing and dispatching, so we’re well practiced at it,” says Stephen Constable, commercial director. “But in addition to the convenience of ordering online, buyers can consult our nationwide team of 50 agricultural and 14 groundscare representatives for advice, and for expert hand-over of equipment and fault-finding if needed.”
Securing the Honda Industrial dealership underscores the confidence that premium brand manufacturers such as Honda, Husqvarna and Stihl have in Spaldings sales, distribution and after-sales service.
“One thing that attracted us is their pro-active approach, which gets the sales team on to farms, local authorities and others to make them aware of the products available,” says Steve Jeffcock of Honda Industrial. “They also have a good after-sales reputation and it’s very positive that they’re willing to service or repair products, regardless of whether they’ve supplied them.”
Spaldings now stocks a number of core models from the Honda Industrial range, including the EU10i 1.0kW and EU20i 2.0kW portable inverter generators, which are the first sound-proofed models in the Spaldings catalogue.
Weighing just 13kg and 21kg, respectively, these super-quiet models are designed for home, boating, camping and other low-power demand uses, including hand tools and lighting.
Professional generators include the 3.6kW EC3600 from the Endurance range of up to 6.5kW models, and the 2.3kW EM2300 from the Endurance High-Tech line, which features an intelligent automatic voltage regulator to maintain output at a set value regardless of varying load and operating temperature.
Among the pumps available, the light-weight WX10 25mm (1in) clean water transfer and irrigation pump can be used at virtually any angle thanks to a purpose-designed lubrication system.
This 120-litre/min pump is the smallest of four high-pressure models delivering up to 450-litre/min and suited to a number of general-purpose applications. The two ‘WH’ models feature an extra-durable cast iron impeller assembly.
Spaldings also stocks the Honda WB20 from a six-model range equipped to handle trashy water and chemicals, as well as clean water.
The WB20 is a 50mm (2in) pump capable of delivering up to 620-litre/min and operating with a total head of 32m. Like all models in this professional range, the WB20 is housed within a robust steel frame for easy handling, as well as for stability and impact protection on-site and during transit.
“These are ideal pumps for filling crop sprayers, handling liquid fertilisers and pumping dirty water,” notes Stephen Constable. “They all come with a strainer, hose bands and couplers, and our extensive after-care service – local owners can call in with items needing attention or we can arrange to collect them nationwide, whether or not they were bought from us in the first place.”
