Wacker Neuson, a global pace-setting light and compact equipment manufacturer, recently delivered 90 RD7 pedestrian dual-vibration rollers to a state-owned enterprise based in Pretoria. The machines will be distributed at the customer’s discretion to selected members within society in a bid to empower them to be able to grow economically and promote sustainable community growth.
“Wacker Neuson is renowned for quality and reliability, making us a preferred supplier with our customers who can rely on us to deliver on our brand promise,” says company Sales Representative, Dennis Zuma. “It is this reputation of trust and professionalism that made us the supplier of choice for this particular project too.”
“Furthermore, owing to the value-adding features of the Wacker Neuson RD7 walk-behind roller, this compact machine will undeniably offer the most simple and economic solution for the end-users,” notes Zuma. The roller delivers best-in-class performance in the compaction of soil, gravel, concrete, and asphalt in the construction of roads and foundations. The RD7 is easy to operate, maneuver and service. For enhanced operator safety and comfort, all control elements are located directly on the guide handle, giving the operator complete control of the machine from his operating position thus removing any need to move around the machine.
“We also accredit the choice of the machines to our excellent partnership with KT Squared who is the premium agent for large OEMs in South Africa,” remarks Zuma, adding that KT Squared facilitated this order and ensured a smooth deal.
This project is a proud accomplishment for Wacker Neuson, given the large number of compacting machines ordered, the tight time frame as well as the challenging logistics.
“As a customer-service oriented company, we are particularly proud of the fact that we successfully completed this project in five months, meeting our customer’s deadline,” states Dennis Vietze, Managing Director for Wacker Neuson Sub-Saharan Africa.
Full support in terms of service, maintenance, repairs, and spare parts will be available to the end-users at Wacker Neuson’s fully equipped workshop at its West Rand, Johannesburg, headquarters as well as through its strategic network of 36 dealer partners across South Africa. The end-users will be able to conveniently have their RD7 rollers serviced, maintained, and repaired at a Wacker Neuson dealer closest to them.
Zuma also confirms that Wacker Neuson will be providing practical and theoretical training to the RD7 operators upon the rollout of the project. “Training will be provided both at our brand new cutting-edge Training Academy based at our South African offices as well as off-site as required, with training certificates awarded to successful delegates. The advanced facility, which was officially opened on 1st July 2022, can accommodate up to 80 delegates. An external demonstration area adjacent to the Academy further enhances the customer experience, offering them a unique opportunity to operate a range of Wacker Neuson machines, including skid-steers, excavators, wheel loaders, and dump trucks.
