These very lightweight troughs (with dry weights of 18kg, 25kg and 32kg respectively) are quite easy to handle and install by yourself.

Handy on the Water

Out on the water, one of the most useful items you can find is the very versatile buoy. Whether you need to mark the location of your crab pots, place a surface marker for scuba divers, find the entrance to a boating channel, or secure your boat at a mooring site, the brightly coloured buoy is definitely handy! Made with bright colours so they can easily be seen in the water, these buoys have a diameter of 600mm, a height of 800mm and come with a galvanised shackle.

eNewsletter September 2013 - Handy in the Cane Fields

Handy in the Cane Fields

Did you know that sugar cane is the world's largest crop? In 2010, over 23 million hectares were planted with sugarcane, producing 1.69 billion tons. The Gough family has had a long association with the Sugar Industry which is how the inspiration came about for the handy and humble Extractor Hood. When harvesting sugar cane, this unique design allows the unwanted parts of the stalk to be blown away from the harvested cane. The "trash", including the tops of the sugar cane and dead leaves, can be left in the field to act as mulch for the next crop. Please view our video to learn more.

As you can see, there are many handy products made right here at Gough Plastics! In fact, join us next month to see what handy items we made for the Not Too Old to Dance concert in Townsville!
