Following yet another successful exhibition at Nampo, light equipment and compact equipment specialist- Wacker Neuson South Africa- recently hosted a farmers’ day in Hartswater in collaboration with their dealer, Hooiland. Low operational and input costs are fundamental to farm sustainability and profitability. Compact and robust in design, high in performance, and economical to operate, Wacker Neuson’s range of agricultural machines are up to the task.
‘The farmer’s day presented us with the opportunity to demonstrate the all-round versatility and efficiency of our robust agricultural machines to over 200 farmers,’ says Dennis Vietze, managing director at Wacker Neuson, Sub-Saharan Africa. Wacker Neuson wheel loaders, mini-excavators and telehandlers were put through their paces to show their capabilities in taking care of a wide range of applications in and around the farm- from general material handling functions such as loading and stacking to bush clearing and trenching. Versatility is further augmented by the array of quality-built Wacker Neuson attachments, including augers for hole digging and pallet forks for bale stacking, giving one machine the ability to perform the task of many. Farmers also had the opportunity to view Wacker Neuson’s high quality range of dewatering submersible and trash pumps.
Underlining Wacker Neuson’s renowned commitment to service excellence, the company conveniently takes its products right to the customer’s doorstep. Vietze affirms they are able to host a live demo at any farm with any Wacker Neuson equipment that farmers would like to view.
‘Having agricultural equipment distributor, Hooiland, as our dealer presents tremendous growth opportunities for our agricultural offering. Hooiland enables us to widen our agricultural footprint and to get closer to our customers not only with our quality products but also with quality parts and service, ensuring long-term partnerships in the farming industry,’ concludes Vietze.
