Scepter celebrates sports facilities maintenance crews during Turf Pros Week

Scepter has designated the week of April 17-24 to be Turf Pros Week in recognition of the hardworking professionals who keep sports facilities in tip-top shape.

“Whether you’re playing, cheering on your kids, or watching the pros play, there’s nothing like taking in a ball game. It’s easy to forget how much work goes into keeping the playing surface in good shape,” said Dan Marshall, vice president of marketing and business development for Scepter. “This week we want to pay tribute to the pros who work tirelessly so we can enjoy playing and watching our favorite games.”

One of the ways Scepter is celebrating sports facilities maintenance professionals is by making their jobs a little easier. Their Duramax fuel caddy and SmartControl fuel cans give pros the convenience of efficiently refueling equipment without the worry of spills and overfills.

“You can take these fuel containers anywhere,” said Marshall. “We designed them to be easy to use, so you don’t have to worry about spills damaging turf or creating a safety hazard.”

The Duramax fuel caddy combines a 14-gallon capacity with the convenience of an automotive-grade hose and nozzle. The Flo ‘n Go patented pump transfers fuel quickly at two gallons per minute and lets users control the flow easily. Its large capacity reduces valuable time spent at the pump while the 10-foot hose easily reaches equipment, increasing efficiency on the job.

SmartControl fuel cans are an upgrade to the standard fuel portable fuel can. The ergonomic spout lets users control the flow of fuel with the simple push of a button. Available in one-, two-, and five-gallon capacities, SmartControl fuel cans are ideal for easily refilling smaller, handheld equipment without spills.

Both the Duramax and SmartControl containers are made of durable, high-density polyethylene and were designed to be safe, easy to use and improve efficiency for pros. The Duramax is offered in gasoline-compliant models while SmartControl containers are offered in gasoline-, diesel- and kerosene-compliant models.
