30 years of partnership

Our range of telehandlers, forklifts and loaders for sale bring power, versatility, reliability and rough-terrain operability to all agricultural applications in South Africa. This includes the following sectors:  breeding, cereals and crop farming, nurseries and arboriculture and equestrian.

These machines can be modified with a large range of agricultural-specific attachments meaning a single machine can be modified for multi-functionality. Machinery such as this enhances productivity while reducing costs as it minimises the need for multiple single-purpose machines.

South African farmers continue to discover the benefits of mechanisation with multi-purpose equipment performing a host of farming activities despite rough terrain and climatic conditions. Our agriculture equipment has been designed with three decades of field knowledge that guarantees improved fuel efficiency, greater versatility and simplified handling to farmers and agricultural sector participants in South Africa and Southern Africa.

Total control and management

Our operational systems for agricultural applications can be customised to specifications for most control aspects; starting with customised start-up screens to password access control on your telehandlers. A fail-safe braking system has been incorporated into our telescopic handlers to prevent runaway and vehicle motion in the event that the operator is not in the telescopic handler.
