The Goscor Group, part of the Bud Group, will have a substantial presence at Grain SA’s NAMPO Harvest Day this year. Bobcat Equipment South Africa, Goscor Cleaning Equipment, Goscor Earth Moving, Goscor Power Products, Goscor Lift Truck Company, Goscor Compressed Air Systems, and Prowalco Tatsuno will all showcase leading products for the agricultural industry.

With the industry under substantial pressure due to the ongoing drought, spiralling fuel and labour costs, and lower margins, this represents a great opportunity for the Goscor Group stable to showcase high-quality, cost-effective, and robust solutions to improve productivity and reduce costs.

An example of this proactive approach, and what promises to be a major drawcard to the Goscor Group stand at NAMPO 2019, is the new diesel genset range to be unveiled by Goscor Power Products (GPP). This handy back-up or standby power source ranges from 5 kVA to 110 kVA, and will be available at a special launch price for the duration of the exhibition.

“It is ideal to combat load shedding, which poses a significant risk to energy-intensive farming operations such as dairies,” GPP MD Mark Bester comments. GPP distributes well-known brands such as Weima, Rato, Lutian, CSM Mixers, and Meiwa.

From fencing to trenching and excavating to loading and cleaning, and even grapples for bales, Bobcat Equipment South Africa will have a full line-up of equipment ideal for the agricultural industry on display at NAMPO 2019.

“The agricultural industry is an important growth market for Bobcat, and therefore the exposure we obtain by attending is very important for our brand visibility,” Bobcat National Sales Manager Brian Rachman highlights. This is the number one compact materials-handling equipment brand in the world.

The Bobcat B730 is a versatile ‘back-to-basics’ backhoe loader for trenching, breaking, or even materials-handling. Features include a 100 hp turbocharged engine, a powershift transmission as standard, 18″ front tyres and two-wheel steer, superior breakout force with double loader bucket cylinders, and reduced maintenance costs due to a bolt-type cylinder head design.
