Eqstra Industrial Equipment (EIE) returns to NAMPO 2015 to launch its SAME Frutetto 75 Natural Euro III 2WD range of fruit farming tractors, as well as to showcase its Toyota Forklift, JCB, Paladin, SAME Deutz Fahr, HAKO, Standen Pearson and Clark ranges of equipment at the expo, which will run from 12-15 May 2015 at Bothaville in the Free State.

EIE will be exhibiting at their usual two stands – Stand no. 207 and 216A situated at Gate One. A comprehensive range of machinery, attachments and equipment will be on display, but of particular interest to visitors will be the durable and versatile SAME Frutetto fruit farming tractor, which will be unveiled at the show.

General Manager: Marketing and Communications at EIE, Karen van Diggelen said “We are delighted to be returning to Nampo 2015 again this year. It is one of the largest and most respected agricultural showcases for the industry, not only in South Africa, but for the continent, and we are looking forward to showing-off some of the machinery and technologies that make EIE the preferred supplier of equipment”.

Tractors, Potato Planters, Attachments and Batteries
Farming and agriculturally related activities need equipment that is reliable and operationally cost efficient without losing the quality required for successful farming. With this in mind, EIE will be exhibiting the Standen Pearson ‘Quad Two-Row Potato Planter’ which offer farmers a tractor trailed machine that can plant two rows of potatoes, planting four seeds simultaneously in a quad formation.

The current electricity load shedding issues have a direct impact upon electrically operated materials handling machinery. Circumventing load-shedding and creating an environmentally friendly and fume-free operation is achieved by utilising battery-powered forklifts. Forklifts on offer from Toyota Forklift are powered by Hoppecke energy-efficient batteries that will last an entire shift without the need for recharging, which is a simple overnight operation. Hoppecke batteries will also be on display at NAMPO.

The perfect attachments for JCB materials handling and earthmoving machinery is the lightweight Paladin construction tools which are available from EIE. A vast range of innovative performance-driven coupler systems and attachment tools from small compact tool carriers to large excavators, wheel loaders, tractors and truck chassis is available and will be on display.

Genuine Parts – You Get What You Pay For
With the current economic climate impacting upon budgets, it does not make sense to choose generic replacement parts for your individual or fleet of materials handling or agri equipment machinery. The old adage of getting what you pay for is never more pressing than with equipment that needs to perform reliably and cost effectively. Toyota Forklift offer genuine Toyota Forklift replacement parts, in addition to their superior after-market servicing technical support.

“We are looking forward to hosting our customers again at our stand at Nampo, as we have some exciting promotions and offers in store this year”, commented van Diggelen.
