EQSTRA’s 600SA has been behind the scenes facilitating the waste management in the Mother City. The division, which falls under Eqstra Industrial Equipment, was awarded a contract by the City of Cape Town to supply 46 heavy industrial refuse compactors over a period of three years – with the balance of the seven remaining units being delivered at the end of January 2014.
The bodies of the refuse compactors were manufactured at 600SA’s factory based in Spartan, Johannesburg where the manufacture of the company’s renowned skip loader and Spartan cranes are also manufactured. The Usimeca Brutus HD tailgates, which were mounted to the compactors, were brought in from South America where the brand is a manufacturer of tailgates in that region.
The refuse compactors were then assembled at 600CT’s premises (600SA’s distributer in the Western Cape) located in Parow Industria including the manufacture and fitting of the crew cabs and bin lifter.
600SA is a leading manufacturer and supplier of waste handling equipment since 1967. The company, which is a member of the Proudly South African campaign, also manufactures various types of waste handling equipment, from Hook Lifts to Skip Loaders, water tanks and vacuum tanks. The division also supplies and distributes Bucher Schorling range of road sweepers.
