Volvo wheel loaders a hit in SA
According to Dave Vaughan, Managing Director of Babcock’s Equipment business, Volvo wheel loaders have established themselves as firm favourites in the southern African market with some customers having as many as 20 units in their fleets.
“Since Babcock became Volvo CE’s dealer in 2000, we’ve sold just over 1 000 of Volvo’s heavier wheel loaders locally, mainly to customers in mining, and most of them are still in service today, which bears testimony to their high quality and durability” says Vaughan. He adds that the wheel loaders, in combination with Volvo’s articulated and rigid trucks and excavators, have given Babcock the ability to meet virtually all the equipment needs of its mining customers. “Just several years ago, we had some gaps in our line-up but new machine introductions – such as the EC950E crawler excavator and the R100E rigid truck – mean that customers can now have all-Volvo mining fleets.”
