At the recently-ended bauma CONEXPO AFRICA, Smith Power, a South African importation and distribution company representing leading global brands, reiterated its pioneering position in the local compact equipment market by showcasing several of its new, internationally-renowned brands recently added to its ever-growing stable.
Apart from the usual launch of new products, major capital equipment exhibitions of bauma CONEXPO AFRICA nature have also evolved to be great platforms to learn of new trends in the capital equipment space.
Kubota “Ons bied voorwaar ’n strawwe toets vir toerusting,” sê Tony Teerink, onderhoudsbestuurder van Synag-suiwelboerdery by Randvaal. Met sowat 4 000 koeie in melk in die vyf melkery in die groep, moet elke stukkie toerusting gereed wees vir ’n 24/7-toets, want dinge staan nooit stil nie.
Voer moet vir al die beeste gemaak word en ’n trekker wat vir Synag wil werk moet homself gereed maak vir grondbewerking, plant-, strooi-, sny-, baal-, sleep- en mengwerk. Kubota het onlangs vir die diens aangetree en die koeie en hulle base glimlag van oor tot oor oor hierdie sinvolle toevoeging.
South African importation and distribution company, Smith Power Equipment, represents leading global brands in the specialist machinery, turf maintenance and off-road vehicle market. They will be exhibiting at bauma CONEXPO AFRICA to demonstrate their relentless expansion into the construction industry, with a line-up of some of the most renowned global construction brands on show.
At the upcoming bauma CONEXPO AFRICA 2018, the third international trade fair for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines and construction vehicles, Smith Power Equipment (smith) will showcase its expansion into the construction industry, with the official launch of AUSA compact equipment in the local market set to exhibit at the show.
As part of its routine fleet replacement programme, Hermanus Golf Club has acquired a total of seven machines from Smith Power Equipment, a South African importer and distributor of leading global specialist machinery, turf maintenance equipment and off-road vehicles.
With its unparalleled scenic beauty, modern infrastructure, upmarket shops and endless adventure options, it’s little wonder that Hermanus, a seaside town southeast of Cape Town, has grown in size and popularity during the last decade.
Two Kubota M8540 standard open-station tractors recently supplied to Sierra Citrus in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, are working beyond the owner’s expectations, helping ease the space constraints and increase overall production at the orange farm.
In September 2017, Sierra Citrus took delivery of two Kubota M8540 standard open-station tractors from Rudamans Nelspruit, a leading supplier of forestry, gardening and agricultural equipment, and also the Nelspruit-based authorised distributor for Smith Power Equipment, the sole importer of the Kubota range of equipment in South Africa.
Verti-Drain: During the aeration or hollow tining season all golfers will tell you how much they respect those machines that do the job, but still leave the fairways and greens playable.
“Not inconveniencing our members is the Holy Grail in golf course management and our Redexim Verti-Drain 7212 machine is the answer to our prayers,” says Langebaan Country Estate’s (LCE) golf course superintendent Klaas van Eyssen. “It enables us to achieve deep and effective tine aeration without interrupting play.”
When it comes to keeping things cool, Transfrig is one of the most reliable in Africa! For almost 40 years this leading supplier of transport refrigeration equipment has offered world class refrigeration equipment along with outstanding after sales service to a wide range of customers.
Having started in South Africa they have expanded into many other countries in Africa and also Australia, the Middle East, China and Hong Kong – and, for the last 30 years, Tranfrig has used nothing but Kubota engines to power its refrigeration units of all sizes.
In a capital investment decision the owner terms a ‘natural choice’, 2Hire, a Western Cape-based plant hire company, has taken delivery of a new Kubota L45 TLB from Carlu Trekkers, the authorised distributor of Smith Power Equipment, the sole importer of the Kubota range of equipment in South Africa.
The downside of unreliable plant hire equipment is two-way. For the end-user, unplanned downtime translates into project delays, while for the plant hire company, faulty gear is tantamount to channelling both potential profits and reputation down the drain.
When PlusNet’s Chris Vermeulen was introduced to the Kubota U50 mini-excavators at Smith Power Equipment’s (SPE) Nampo 2017 stand, it did not take long for him to make up his mind. “I was immediately impressed with their power to size ratio, their maneuverability in tight spaces and their range of features which promoted efficiency. So we bought three units with attachments including augurs, breakers and standard buckets.”
Well-known Hartswater dairy farm, Calmax Farming, has reported a fuel saving of more than R130 000 per annum since changing from a well-known tractor brand to the Kubota M130X. Calmax manager, Ulli Nauhaus says that the change would have been worth it for the fuel savings alone.
“This fuel efficiency is a real bonus but if you also take into account the added reliability of these tractors and the world class service we get from Danilou Agri, the overall package has been a huge advantage,” he says.
