Mpeke Plant Hire started off in 2014 as an enterprise development initiative. However, since 2017 it started renting out machines throughout the Western Cape, to all market segments. Today it is a flourishing independent plant-hire company, aiming to become the preferred plant-hire company in the region.

Bobcat Cape Town has been instrumental to the company’s growth, enjoying a successful two-year relationship to date. The latest order has seen Mpeke acquire three Bobcat B730 backhoe loaders and a Bobcat S550 skidsteer loader.

In addition, the handover is accompanied by an intense training session of three hours per machine to ensure the client receives the maximum benefit from the equipment, as well as assisting in reducing maintenance requirements and subsequent downtime. Accredited operator training can also be provided if need be.

In addition to the equipment supplied, Bobcat is also responsible for all of Mpeke’s maintenance requirements. “We supply 24/7 service support due to the fact that some of the machines work on night shift,” Bobcat Cape Town Sales Consultant Christo Swart highlights. He adds that 500-hour service intervals are a distinguishing factor of the Bobcat B730 backhoe loader.

Punted as a versatile ‘back-to-basics’ machine, the Bobcat B730 backhoe loader features a 100 hp turbocharged engine, a standard powershift transmission, 18" front tyres and two-wheel steering, a superior breakout force with double loader bucket cylinders, and reduced maintenance costs due to the bolt-type cylinder head design.
