The Maer range of high-pressure washers will prominently feature at Goscor Cleaning Equipment’s stand at NAMPO 2019. High-pressure washers have traditionally found favour in the agricultural community as farmers seek to keep their large capital equipment units dirt-free, thereby reducing maintenance costs and downtime.
At this year’s Grain SA’s NAMPO Harvest Day – to be held between 14 and 17 May at Bothaville, Free State – Goscor Cleaning Equipment (GCE), the leading provider of industrial equipment solutions in South Africa, will largely showcase its Maer range of industrial high-pressure cleaners. This will be complemented by some vacuum cleaners and floor scrubbers – solutions that speak directly to farmers’ cleaning needs.
Peter Esterhuizen, National Sales Director at GCE, says high-pressure washers are integral to the farming community as these machines help farmers keep their big-ticket and mission critical machinery such as agricultural combine harvesters, crop sprayers and tractors clean. “High-pressure washers ensure that these big and expensive machines are maintained properly by removing any dirt particulates and general grime on a daily basis in wash bays, thus reducing maintenance costs and, of course, downtime,” says Esterhuizen.
This year’s NAMPO comes at a time when the farming community is battling several challenges, including droughts and poor yields. Esterhuizen says it is for this reason that keeping costs under control should be a major priority for farmers.
“Keeping maintenance costs down and reducing downtime is essential for farmers – they invest huge amounts of capital on big agricultural equipment that often operates in very dusty and sometimes muddy conditions. These conditions result in a lot of wear and tear on components if not controlled, so keeping these machines clean on a daily basis is a must,” he says.
The Maer range includes electric, petrol and diesel-driven versions from 220 V to 380 V, and pressure ratings of anywhere between 100 to 500 bar. The premium Italian-manufactured pressure washers are particularly robust in design, easy to operate, durable and fitted with the durable Interpump.
GCE experts will be on hand to discuss some of the key trends in the agricultural industry. “Lowering cost of ownership will particularly be a key topic of discussion this year. This is achievable by purchasing suitable, reliable and durable equipment that can be serviced and repaired countrywide. GCE provides the highest level of product and service excellence due to its extensive branch and dealership network throughout South Africa,” concludes Esterhuizen.
