Award means Baksaver Barrow is Glee's best new bit of kit
An ingenious wheelbarrow that you don’t have to tip to push or push to tip won the Best Machinery and Tools category in Glee’s New Product Awards.
Baksaver Barrows (20A26), making their Glee debut in the Innovation Zone, also won the Innovation Award.
The company was set up by Devon-based machinery dealer James Hayes (picrtured right) to market the Baksaver, developed over two years after a friend came to him with his bright idea.
Using a simple cantilever arrangement, the galvanized steel butt tips forward with one easy movement, while smooth wheel bearings and pneumatic tyres make the unit highly manoeuvrable. A rolled-over rim underpins the strength and rigidity of the butt. The framework is powder-coated steel so durability is asssured. Suggested retail price is £129.
“The response here at Glee has been fantastic,” James told Glee Daily News. “We have got loads of leads – people love its uniqueness and points of difference.”
