Additionally, the company will showcase their latest pipe rail trolley in the stand. Finally, they have a new AGV bell pepper harvesting container to show.

Unique sweeping machine
The Stefix 150 is designed for cleaning large areas. The machine sweeps and vacuums at the same time, so all the dirt and dust are collected in the waste dustbin. The machine has a capacity of about 9,700 square meters per hour.

Demand from the market
The machine was created due to market demand. Due to economies of scale in various industries, areas to sweep are becoming larger and larger. The most commonly used machine was the Stefix 95, which had a sweeping width of about 1 meter. Only this sweeping width is on the narrow side. Customers want to sweep more efficiently, so they ask for wider sweeping machines. These wider machines are already available, but have a price 3x higher than the Stefix 95. This higher price is mostly because wider sweepers are produced more advanced than necessary. So, the customer requirement was a wide, affordable, and simple sweeper. Steenks Service aimed to develop and test such a machine specially, resulting in the Stefix 150.

At the HortiContact exhibition in Gorinchem, Steenks Service will introduce a new sweeper: the Stefix 150. This sweeper has a sweeping width of 1.5 meters. The machine has been developed and designed by Steenks Service itself. After a test period, the Stefix 150 will be introduced at the fair with a promotion.

On top of that, at the HortiContact, the company will present several new machines from their range. The Stefix 135 HD ground cover sweeper with high dump and the Stefix 73BT electric ground cover sweeper will also be presented. These can, therefore, also be seen in Gorinchem after their introduction at the IPM fair in Essen.
