Wacker Neuson, with its very long and distinguished record of supplying products and services to agricultural customers across the globe, once again highlighted the quality, performance and affordability of its range of German-engineered compact and robust machines showcased at this year’s Royal Agricultural Show.
It was the global plant and light construction and agri-equipment specialist’s fifth consecutive year as an exhibitor at the agricultural show and according to Eugene Brown, Regional President of Wacker Neuson in Sub-Saharan Africa, the event was once again a success. “It presents the perfect platform to showcase our agri-solutions and our machines certainly got the farmers’ attention.”
Every farm, irrespective of whether it grows crops or fruit or produces meat or dairy, requires the lifting, stacking and moving of materials. “Farmers need to do this quickly and efficiently, with the lowest possible input and operating costs and this is where Wacker Neuson really delivers on our promise – ‘All it Takes’. Our machines and equipment deliver exactly what the farmer needs – quality, performance, reliability, versatility, easy operation, low fuel consumption and low maintenance costs all at an affordable price. The current drought is placing further pressures on many farmers and here our machines deliver true value add.”
Fitted with a wide selection of attachments including bale and pallet forks, augers, trenchers, mulchers and mowers, mixing buckets, etc., the Wacker Neuson range of skid steer loaders, wheel loaders, telescopic wheel loaders, telehandlers, dumpers and excavators become versatile helpers on any farm. They can take on almost any task, from silage stacking and harvesting, kraal cleaning, fence pole installation and farm road maintenance, all the way through to handling bulk containers of harvested vegetables in the fields. “The dairy industry in KwaZulu-Natal in particular has embraced our machines. Our wheel loaders, with their small turning radii, are very popular for providing animal fodder (full feeding and mixing function in feedlots) as well as for cleaning out cowsheds.
The Wacker Neuson Group is a global leading specialist with over 165 years’ experience in the manufacture of light and compact construction equipment and machines. “This means that the same industry-leading qualities inherent to our agricultural equipment is mirrored in our range of compact light-weight machinery and equipment for the construction sector,” continues Brown. “Farmers thus have the added advantage of being able to utilize our construction-related industry expertise, specifically within our lighting, pumping and generator product groups where we can offer world-class solutions for night-work, water movement and power supply problems.”
“When farmers purchase a Wacker Neuson machine, they invest not only in the equipment but also in the company’s fast, specialist after-sales service including effective maintenance and repair from our strategically located dealer network,” concludes Brown.
