Bobcat Equipment South Africa (Pty) Ltd has been supplying a diverse range of class leading plant and lifting equipment for local industry especially in Gauteng, since 1987.

Ruwacon (Pty) Ltd, founded in 1999, is a leader in local building construction and is one of the preferred construction companies for various government departments. The company is engaged on more than 70 construction sites throughout South Africa and, in order to maintain quality and on-time delivery of building contracts, Ruwacon constantly researches avenues to avoid costly downtime.

When Ruwacon required a reliable product to move rubble onto trucks at the Vioolsdrift construction site, Bobcat was the provider of choice. According to Ruwacon Director, Rodger Mackey, Bobcat Equipment was selected as the company’s reputation for excellence is well known in the construction industry. “We needed a rugged, reliable unit to move concrete panels and ground, lift heavy steel beams and break through concrete slabs, and Bobcat’s Model T40170 Telescopic Handler, including a Bucket and Pallet Fork as well as a Manual Concrete Bucket, proved to be the right choice”, explains Rodger.

Rodger says that Ruwacon had not had previous business dealings with Bobcat but, when compared to other suppliers of plant equipment, the company’s reputation for product availability, after sales service as well as realistic pricing were the deciding factors for selecting the Bobcat telescopic handler.

Bobcat Equipment received the order at the end of January 2008 and the equipment has been delivered and is fully utilised at Ruwacon’s Vioolsdrift site.

“We have already seen tangible benefits from using the Bobcat telescopic handler”, comments Rodger. “Man hours have been significantly reduced, and loading, digging, lifting and moving of rubble are far more efficiently and speedily done,” concludes Rodger.

Bobcat Equipment South Africa has an enviable and impeccable reputation for product excellence the entire product range is supported by Bobcat’s unsurpassed before and after-sales service.
