Compact construction, agricultural and forestry equipment specialist, Wacker Neuson South Africa, a subsidiary of the leading global Wacker Neuson Group, recently completed delivery of 50 RD7 pedestrian dual-vibration rollers to key customer, Hire All (Pty) Ltd. 

Head quartered in Lanseria, Gauteng, Hire All has been a leading supplier of plant and equipment hire for 40 years, with a current fleet comprising of more than 200 product lines and over 6 000 machines. “Selecting Wacker Neuson as a preferred supplier aligns with Hire All’s well-established reputation as a leading supplier of trusted equipment,” states Dennis Vietze, Managing Director of Wacker Neuson Sub-Saharan Africa. “To this end, they put a lot of thought, planning and research into each purchase to ensure that they provide only the best product solutions to their customers.”

According to Wacker Neuson’s Area Sales Representative, Frans Bopape, the robust RD7 machine is packed with more functions than an average walk-behind roller, delivering best-in-class performance in the compaction of soil, gravel, concrete, and asphalt in the construction of roads and foundations. Frans explains that while most other rollers on the market can only be used on soil or asphalt, the extremely versatile Wacker Neuson machine incorporates a dual vibration system that enables customers to choose their application. “Our operator-friendly roller is designed to handle both surfaces with ease.” For enhanced operator safety and comfort, all control elements are located directly on the guide handle, giving the operator complete control of the machine from his operating position. “Equipment rental offers an economic solution and the unmatched versatility of the RD7s, coupled with durability and quick and uncomplicated service and maintenance make these remarkable machines a perfect fit for this sector.”

“The versatility of the RD7 is one of the benefits that impressed us most and, given the high suitability of the rollers to our market, we are confident that the machine is going to be very popular with our customers,” says Hire All Marketing Manager, Deborah Rogers. 

Wacker Neuson delivered the first fifteen rollers to Hire All’s headquarters just two days after receiving the order, with the remainder arriving just 1.5 months later. “We are extremely satisfied with the quick turnaround time,” says Deborah. “We sent some of the rollers directly to our customers and distributed the rest of the machines to our eight Gauteng branches located in Blue Hills, Florida, Honeydew, Jet Park, Krugersdorp, Lanseria, Montana and Wynberg as well as to our Emalahleni facility in Mpumalanga.”  

Operator training on the RD7 was presented to Hire All personnel by Frans and Rainer Schmidt, Product Manager for Wacker Neuson, at Hire All headquarters. When it comes to service and maintenance of the RD7 units, Hire All has it covered at both head office and branch level. A team of some 30 artisans will be responsible for the regular servicing, maintenance and repairs of the RD7s at Hire All’s fully-equipped Lanseria workshop. General repairs and services on machines returning from site will be taken care of by mechanics based at the Hire All branches.

“Wacker Neuson’s great and diverse product portfolio, which is supported by a matching spares offering, enables us to repair the machines with minimum downtime,” notes Deborah. She adds that they are extremely happy with the other Wacker Neuson equipment in their fleet and also lauds the service they have received from Wacker Neuson. “We look forward to working with Wacker Neuson going forward and to developing an even better relationship with their team.”In closing, Dennis says, “Wacker Neuson products stem from exceptional German engineering and it is for this reason customers can never go wrong when choosing our machines and equipment to complete their projects. We are confident that Hire All will be excellent brand ambassadors for our products supported by exceptional service to their customers. Companies like Hire All enable us to further expand our African footprint by bringing the premium Wacker Neuson brand to more customers across South- and Sub-Sahara Africa.”
