Earthmoving specialist EPH commends Atlas Copco hydraulic hammers

Excavating and earthmoving rental equipment provider EPH Plant Hire (PTY) LTD has commended the range of SB202 hydraulic hammers supplied by sustainable productivity solutions provider Atlas Copco.

EPH supplies a broad spectrum of customers that range from large listed construction firms to small individual contractors including many new BEE companies. EPH’s partnership with Atlas Copco stems back to 2007. Since then, EPH has continued supporting Atlas Copco for the supply of quality construction equipment which has included MB1700 and MB2200 hammers.

“Over the years, Atlas Copco has proved that they are without any doubt a leading supplier of quality construction equipment which they support with excellent after sales service,” says EPH Sales / Plant Manager Brendan Badenhorst.

“We have benefited from Atlas Copco’s range of hydraulic hammers which fit perfectly with our specialized fleet of excavators that range from 5t mini excavators to 30 t wheeled excavators.”

The recent fitment of the SB202 hammers onto their Komatsu PC55 mini excavators has proven to be a winning combination that has yielded high production rates for EPH owing to the outstanding reliability of these hammers.

Fitted with the hydraulic hammers, the mini excavators provide flexible rock breaking solutions for small rural infrastructure projects that have limited working space due to the fact that most of the water pipes, electrical cabling and road infrastructure pass through densely populated areas. “This has culminated in a significant demand for smaller excavators fitted with hydraulic hammers capable of completing such projects,” explains Badenhorst.

“The SB202 hammer and mini excavator is proving to be a winning combination.”

Badenhorst points out that as a rental company, reliability is paramount for EPH.

“Cheap imports are not a long-term solution for any company. While they may initially save you money, their long-term expenses, servicing and maintenance costs are endless.”

“The value of Atlas Copco equipment lies in quality, reliability, performance and low maintenance that deliver lowest cost of ownership, rapid return on investment and, most importantly, satisfied EPH customers,” concludes Badenhorst.
