Servest Security Services, part of the Servest group, has taken delivery of 32 Linhai Rustler 260 XL quad bikes to be used for patrolling Transnet railway lines. Servest regional HR manager, Bertie van der Mescht says that the company looked at several options and decided on Linhai because of the very competitive pricing, Linhai’s tried and tested power and reliability and the well-known excellent levels of aftermarket service provided by Smith Power Equipment (SPE).
“It’s obvious that power and, above all, reliability, are key to providing the best possible security service and with SPE and Linhai we are assured of these. This, combined with the good price we were offered made the choice a fairly simple one,” van der Mescht says.
He adds that he is happy with the performance of the machines over what is sometimes quite difficult terrain.
The Rustler 260 XL 2X4 has become one of South Africa’s most popular quads. One of its most important features is its lightweight, automatic transmission, which makes the bike extremely user-friendly and a veritable blast to ride from a power perspective. Other key features include:
- 257 cc, 4 stroke, single cylinder SOHC, liquid cooled engine
- Electric starter
- High/Low range with reverse gear
- 200kg tow capacity2015mm x 1140mm x 1195mm (LxWxH) dimensions
- Dry weight 280kg
SPE’s Mark Chittenden says that the Servest deal was an important one for his company. “Servest is a highly effective and professional company, delivering a world class security service to its clients. For them to choose Linhai and the services of Smith Power equipment is a feather in our cap,” says Chittenden.
