Last year saw Eqstra Holdings celebrate its 5 year anniversary listing on the JSE and launched its new slogan, Moving Value. This is centred on the group’s philosophy which believes in providing the lifetime value you expect from your capital equipment.

At this year’s Harvest day, visitors can expect, as always, the best in class brands supplied by Eqstra Industrial Equipment (EIE), a division of the Holdings’ group.

Products on display

EIE’s agricultural division will be featuring equipment from the SAME DEUTZ-FAHR agricultural range of tractors as well as the Standen Pearson Potato Planting and Harvesting brand. This will include the SAME Tiger 60 4 WD S/F, a popular haulage tractor with the small-scale farmers. A series of SAME Explorer and DEUTZ FAHR Agrolux tractors which are commonly used for soil preparation will also form part of the display and in addition, the SAME Iron 165.6 and DEUTZ- FAHR Agrofarm 420 which are used for large scale commercial farming will also be exhibited.

The range of the compact SAME Frutteto tractors will also be on show on the EIE stand. This family of specialist tractors is designed specifically for orchard and vineyard applications and is capable of responding effectively to the widest variety of requirements with the compact dimensions also ensuring manoeuvrability in the tightest spaces, but providing the necessary kW to use for spraying. These tractors can be found within the farming communities in Cape Town, Nelspruit and Limpopo.

To provide for the potato growing sector, EIE will showcase the Deutz-Fahr Agrotrac 150 and various potato planters, bedformers and harvesters from Standen Pearson, a renowned brand in the potato industry in the United Kingdom.

A line up of JCB equipment will also be on display which will include skid steers, rough terrain forklifts as well as Paladin attachments. These ranges of products are extremely popular in the farming sector as they cater for a wide array of tasks such as trenching, clearing forestry, fruit tree planting and transplanting. Built for all terrain usage, the JCB equipment can be used in muddy conditions as well as on uneven ground.
Toyota Forklift, the market leader in southern Africa for materials handling equipment will also be showcasing its diesel forklifts which are preferred in the agricultural sector.

What to look forward to

As the new slogan denotes, we do not only value the lifetime of the capital equipment, but we also value our customers. This year Eqstra will be offering a return trip to Nampo Harvest Day to one lucky customer who concludes a purchase of any of the above mentioned equipment in the month of April 2014. The flight will be on one of Eqstra’s Flying Lions, an American T-6 Harvard plane which is part of the group’s brand ambassadors’ aerobatic team.

Be sure to visit the Eqstra stands 207 & 216A to view the renowned brands and stand a chance to win lots of prizes!
