Construction machines for booming business in South Africa

Construction machines for booming business in South Africa

Save time and money with cost-efficient construction machines – customers of the rental company Catmech in South Africa know to appreciate this as much as reliability, versatility and user-friendliness. But not only that. Those who rent Wacker Neuson machines and equipment from “Catmech” also benefit from advantages that make life much easier.

Sean van Heerden has enough professional experience to know what matters. The owner of Catmech Plant & Services has been working in the construction industry since 1999. He has been renting construction machines with his successful company for many years already. His customers are also at home on construction sites and therefore in particular need wheel loaders, excavators, demolition breakers and compaction equipment.

Restraint gives way to enthusiasm

“A few years ago we tested the first Wacker Neuson products. My customers were very restrained at first. But now they are all extremely satisfied and enthused about the many application areas. I can understand that. The Wacker Neuson products are the most cost-efficient machines that I own,” reports Sean van Heerden. And he likes to buy low-priced construction machines. More than 55 of his wheel loaders, excavators, vibratory rammers, vibratory plates and rollers now come from Wacker Neuson.

For a relaxed everyday workday

He is a big fan of the VDS. It’s not the abbreviation of a soccer club, but rather a unique selling point of Wacker Neuson. With the Vertical Digging System, the operator can level the revolving superstructure of compact excavators up to 15 degrees. It is suitable for horizontal and relaxed working on a slope. It is not only comfortable during daily excavation in uneven ground conditions, but it also provides for savings of 25 percent when excavating and backfilling. The great thing about it – VDS is extremely easy to handle.

Nothing can stop it

And that’s exactly what construction machine rental is all about. Sean knows that when his customers leave his business premises with a Wacker Neuson machine, there are rarely questions. Operator-friendly handling, simple maintenance, almost zero failures. Three arguments that make Sean look really good as a businessman and with which he impresses as a reliable rental yard.

Customer service that serves the customer

Should something nevertheless happen, the South African relies on the Customer Service department. “They are excellent and the response times are extremely fast. Wacker Neuson is one of the few companies in the industry that actually goes the proverbial extra mile.” It is a characteristic that Sean knows about himself and that he does not want to do without in the future. That is why the next construction machine is already in his shopping cart. It has the Wacker Neuson logo.
