Wheel gold at Chelsea

The Makita 18v LXT Brushless power-assisted wheelbarrow has taken some of the back-breaking labour out of Landform Consultants’ inspirational garden builds at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2018.
Mark Gregory, managing director of award winning Landform Consultants Limited, together with his talented team, designed The Welcome to Yorkshire Garden in Main Avenue. It was awarded the Gold & Best Construction medals and the People’s Choice Award. Landform also designed and constructed The Seedlip Garden in the Space to Grow area of the Show, which was awarded a Gold medal.
“Chelsea garden show builds are always an enjoyable challenge and we take them extremely seriously, so any help from Makita is very welcome,” says Mark Gregory, now a twentyone-time Gold medal winner. “This labour-saving powered wheelbarrow has helped to reduce much of the pushing of a fully laden wheelbarrow. This is a very impressive piece of kit and a fine match for the greatest flower show anywhere in the world.”
Designed principally to reduce the physical demands in the construction industry, the new Makita DCU180Z power-assisted wheelbarrow can carry 130kg of blocks on the tubular frame, or similar amount of ballast in the barrow bin option. Compatible with any of the Makita 18v LXT Lithium-Ion batteries, the Makita DCU180Z has soft start to ease the load away; constant speed control; twin LED driving lights and locking brake lever for maximum site safety. For site security, an individual ignition lock key is provided. The DCU180Z is a body-only machine with optional accessories that can include the pipe frame set or bucket frame option.
