The Nampo 2018 agricultural trade show was another successful event for HPE Africa.

“Highlights of this year’s event included meeting many new potential customers – largely from the agricultural and construction sectors – as well as re-connecting with friends we see at Nampo each year,” says HPE Africa’s managing director, Alex Ackron. “This show, which is an important event in our calendar, is the ideal forum to showcase the robust range of Hyundai earthmoving equipment.”

On display this year was the new Hyundai R200LC-9S 20 Ton class crawler excavator, this machine offers the best in its class in fuel efficiency, improved productivity and reduced maintenance requirements.

Also on display was the Hyundai HL730-9S wheel loader and the R60-9s and R35Z mini-excavators, designed for efficient operation in confined areas. The Hyundai HSL850-7 skid steer loader which is used by farmers for various tasks including moving bales of hay, the installation of tanks and for cleaning applications was fitted with an SSL Auger attachment complete with 400mm Tungsten drill. A loose MT900 trencher attachment, complete with 200mm combination chain used for digging trenches, sparked a lot of interest from the visitors.

HPE Africa is the sole distributors in Southern Africa for Hyundai Construction Equipment as well as Soosan hydraulic hammers and McCloskey crushing and screening units.
