All under one roof

The fact that Nelspruit is a multi-franchise branch of Goscor Industrial & Construction Equipment means it represents all brands and products in the Goscor stable. Recently it supplied Bobcat telehandler parts for Jindal Africa
and Kenmare Resources, as well as selling two Sany front-end loaders to Lwandlelethu Business Enterprises.

“The multi-franchise branch approach is cost-effective and a major benefit to customers, who can access all the group has to offer under a single roof,” says Nelspruit Branch Manager, Jean Botha.

Jaco Aspeling, who heads up the Parts Division at Nelspruit, explains that the division orders any spares or parts needed directly from the Johannesburg head office.

Lead time depends on both availability and criticality, with the branch able to respond to most contingencies without incurring significant downtime for its clients.

On the Sany side, the branch delivered two SYL956 front-end loaders to Lwandlelethu Business Enterprises in February. The front-end loaders for Lwandlelethu are being deployed at a coal stockholding operation for electricity utility Eskom.

The Sany SYL956 is an 18ton machine that is ideal for a range of applications, from construction to mining.

The rated load is 5 000kg, and the rated power is 164kW, while the break-out force is 175kN. Another major benefit is the Cummins QSL8.9 engine, which delivers maximum power for high efficiency and large displacement,
as well as complying with international Tier 3 emission standards.
