Telehandlers beef up lifting fleet

Home Infrastructure Construction & Civils Telehandlers beef up lifting fleet

GOSCOR Access Solutions recently acquired 10 T40180 telehandlers from Bobcat Equipment South Africa.

With both companies part of the Bud Group stable, it made sense for Goscor Access Solutions to exploit the synergies of the broader group and acquire its latest equipment internally, MD Andrew Kendrick SAID.

He added that the new telehandlers have already been deployed across a range of projects in the mining and construction industries.

“The latest acquisition forms part of our strategy to future-proof the business in order to ensure viable and sustainable growth going forward, as well as to ensure that our fleet remains as modern as possible,” Kendrick said.

With offices and depots nationwide, the company’s diverse fleet ranges from low-level personnel lifts for indoor work, right up to 57-metre super booms and telehandlers for materials-handling.

Apart from minimal maintenance requirements, the Bobcat T40180 telehandler allows for self-levelling and side shift, and even both at the same time, without any loss of load capacity.

“Excellent visibility makes light work of the following complex movements: Forwards to mount attachments or to pick up loads, upwards for positioning loads at maximum height, all-round manoeuvring, and backwards for safety. This means these telehandlers are extremely versatile and flexibility in a range of applications.”

Kendrick said Brian Rachman, National Operations Manager for both the Bobcat and SANY brands, was instrumental in delivering this important contract on a tight schedule. “All the Bud Group companies are predicated on offering the best possible customer service, lowest cost, and maximum value,” he said.
