“We have been using the fleet combi classic marker for a number of years with great results across our site which includes rugby, football, softball, rounders, athletics on grass as well as hard court marking for tennis and netball and all-weather 3G football, the machine has given us clear bright lines with a great saving of paint. With the amount of markings, we have we decided to get another machine and Simon from fleet suggested the Combi Orange which has an easier battery charging system and a more powerful pump and you can regulate the pressure. When the machine arrived and we used it for the first time we were amazed how much more power the machine had and with the easy control pressure the use in all conditions on weather and surface has really improved our markings. Well done Fleet it is a great machine, ”

"Turnaround of our 18 winter pitches at Wellington College has always been a time consuming and labour intensive affair. We have five pitches available for various sports usage throughout the summer lets period, these can regularly change from rugby to football and any other pitch they require and requests are often at short notice. Once this has finished we need to initial mark 14 rugby pitches, 3 football pitches, a lacrosse pitch and 3 lots of training grids during August for the start of the Michaelmas Term in September. At Christmas we need to change some of our rugby pitches over to football, then at Easter we need to initial mark 8 rugby pitches for a week-long Rugby Festival. Once that is over we need to initial mark our 400m track, javelin and discus in a very quick turnaround for the start of the summer term.

GNSS line marking is something relatively new on the market and I researched the prospect of using this new technology to our advantage.

As a site which is heavily wooded, part of Bracknell Forest, I realised from previous experience with GPS technology that trees can be an issue when locking onto satellite signals. I was hopeful that the advantages would outweigh the disadvantages and decided to arrange demonstrations from two companies, Fleet (Line Markers) Ltd. MAQA being one of them. An obvious choice, being a customer of theirs for many years.

After the demonstrations from Fleet and a rival company the first thing I noticed was the Fleet Marqa paint was extremely durable and, even after two weekends of heavy rain and regular mowing, the lines were still bold and bright on the tennis court we marked out on our cricket outfield for the demonstration. The other was that MAQA uses GNSS and software for superior accuracy.

When it came to cost, the offer from Fleet was a better deal, so I went with them. The MAQA equipment arrived quickly comprising the MAQA Kombi marker, a tripod, a heavy duty case which contained a Samsung tablet and GNSS receiver as well as the necessary battery chargers etc. and a large quantity of Marqa paint in bags. Training was given on-site.

I initially tried the MAQA on our Lacrosse pitch which had faded away to the point that it would have needed initial marking again, 45 minutes later and it was marked. This would normally have taken two of us 3 hours from squaring up, measuring and marking. Bearing in mind that this was my first use of the MAQA and therefore slower than someone who regularly uses it, I was very pleased at the savings in time and labour, I have subsequently used the MAQA on the lacrosse pitch and I marked it in about 25 minutes.

The best test was on our five Derby Field pitches which needed converting from rugby to football. After initial marking three pitches relatively quickly, I managed to initial mark the fourth and fifth pitches in around 20 minutes each. To say I was pleased with the savings in time and labour would be an understatement. No checking right angles, no measuring. Just set up the GNSS receiver on the tripod wait 15-20 mins for full satellite lock and away you go. Just select the line you want to mark on the tablet mounted on the marker and mark, very simple. It’s amazing that you don’t even have to mark the outside “box” first. You can start anywhere, the centre circle, the “D” on the 18-yard box if you want, the choice is yours. As you complete marking each line it is ‘greyed’ out so you always know which ones you have marked and which ones are still to be marked.

If there is anything I am not sure about, the tech guys are at the end of the phone or email are absolutely first class.

I am extremely pleased with the MAQA GNSS marking system. I can now initial mark all of our pitches, single-handedly at a fraction of the cost in terms of labour and time.

Along with the MAQA GNSS marking system we also have two Fleet Beamrider Laser Markers and five Kombi Orange and an athletics track boom to enable three lanes to be marked simultaneously. We also use Blinder concentrate, and in spite of trying other paint, we have always reverted back to Blinder. It isn’t a cheap paint but, it is bright and very durable and rain resistant. I am also a big fan of their aerosol paint, again, I have used cheaper products that are more hiss than paint or cans that clog up or run out of gas before all the paint is used. Fleet aerosol paint is bold, bright and every drop of paint is used before the propellant runs out.

Fleet (Line Markers) Ltd. have always supplied me with a decent product, delivered on time and, most importantly, with a back-up service that is prompt and effective. At Wellington College we demand a line that is bright and durable which benefits players, spectators and officials alike. Fleet line marking paint and equipment meets those demands. I would recommend Fleet to anyone that requires a good, cost effective line marking product, equipment to apply it and an excellent back-up service."

“GMS have used Fleet for over 15 years and have found their staff, products and paint to be of the highest quality. We operate with the BeamRider system which enables us to mark out pitches in a very quick, efficient & accurate manner. In our opinion this system is the most innovative product in the pitch marking industry. We maintain the BeamRider system enabled our 3 man pitch marking team to initially mark out in excess of 200 sports pitches during the 6 weeks summer holidays.”

“Initial line marking is a huge part of our business with over 40 schools and sports clubs and it's never been so easy thanks to Fleet Line Markers and the Maqa line marker system. Reducing the labour and improving quality by far. We at SkippersGM aim to provide the most efficient service!”


Dan Cave

“We have been a Fleet customer for 20+ years and have always been impressed with the quality of the paint we use for pitch marking. We have recently invested in the MAQA system and it has been a real game changer! We combine it with the eROK when marking out running tracks and it has drastically cut the time it takes us to do an initial mark at what is our busiest time. It has reduced the time and man power required, enabling us to run our business more efficiently.”
