Business owner, Barking, Essex
The fact that it's so easy means that the Big Brute is being used without me nagging the staff.
Business owner, St Albans, Hertfordshire
The Big Brute is time-saving and has made a dramatic improvement in the working environment for our employees.
Factory Supervisor, Bishop Auckland, County Durham
We looked at other, much more expensive systems. We definitely made the right choice with our Big Brute.
Business owner, Ongar, Essex
When the Bangalore first arrived in the early 1980s, it revolutionised agricultural crop protection.
Micro-controlled, reliable, wind and weather proof, easy to use and now solar powered for extra convenience.
The Bangalore remains the farmers' favourite for effective crop protection.
No more heavy batteries
The Bangalore's solar panel keeps the mini internal battery topped up all year round. Just add a bottle of gas and you're ready to go.
Reliable in all weathers
The Bangalore's been tried and tested in the worst of the British weather. In rain, wind, snow and gales, it'll keep on protecting your crops.
The Bangalores have always been better at scaring birds away than other gas bangers we've tried.
Arable Farmer, Cambridgeshire
The Test Button is the best thing ever! I can be back in the farmhouse with my feet up instead of waiting around in the cold and wet.
