In the second order in 2017 from the same client, 600SA, part of the EIE Group, has supplied three Fassi heavy duty knuckle-boom cranes to Jacobs Transport, the specialized transport and equipment company, for deployment in special lifting to transportation applications throughout South Africa.
The machine supply contract comprised a Fassi F660RA.2.25 loader crane and two Fassi F485RA.2.23 truck mounted cranes, supplied on an outright purchase basis. The Fassi F660RA.2.25 loader crane has a reach of up to nearly 31 m, while the Fassi F485RA.2.23 truck mounted crane has a maximum reach of approximately 29 m.
In the first order in 2017, Jacobs Transport purchased a FASSI F335A.2.22 medium duty crane.
One of 600SA suite of best-in-class brands, the Fassi cranes are renowned for their dynamic lifting capability, combining exceptional lifting performance with a machine body that reduces structural dimensions to a minimum and aims at limiting tare weight. This is made possible through the use of special materials, such as the extremely high elasticity steels which, while they ensure formidable levels of resistance, also make it possible to optimise weight.
“Throughout this very competitive bid process, we worked very closely with the client to determine their exact needs and were able to attract the client based on our high quality product, competitive price and superior after sales services,” says Gary Neubert, EIE Group’s CEO. “We will continue to focus on providing excellent after sales service as part of our commitment to building a partnership for life with this loyal and long standing customer.”
600SA distributes Fassi’s light duty 1/12 tonnes, medium duty 13/38 tonnes and heavy duty (over 41 tonnes) truck-mounted, knuckle-boom cranes, supporting its client base over the complete product lifecyle, including maintenance contracts, operator and maintenance staff training and spares and aftermarket support.
