Track systems have many advantages over conventional wheel and tyre systems, not least more grip and reduced ground compaction.
Cervus Equipment, with nine branches in NZ and seven branches in southern Australia, will concentrate on the telehandler product range, initially with the KT276 and KT447 models. "We are looking forward to the partnership with Kramer," reports Tim Ormrod, managing director of Cervus Equipment. "The Kramer product portfolio is best suited for our market and year-round application in various agricultural disciplines."
The alliance formed by Kramer and John Deere covers the sales of compact machines from the Kramer brand (so-called "green line") for agriculture, developed and manufactured at Pfullendorf in Germany. The complete model range (KT276, KT356, KT307, KT357, KT407, KT457, KT507, KT557, KT429, KT559) offers a compact model with a payload of 2.7 tonnes and maximum lift height of 6 metres to the largest machines, with a capacity of 5.5 tonnes and 9 metres height.
"With the first telehandlers in the country, Cervus Equipment on board and a Kramer employee on-site, we are looking forward to our new beginning in Australia and New Zealand," explains Thomas Brogt, head of sales international, Kramer.
"In future, the Kramer presence in both countries will continue to be expanded so that we can provide an extensive agricultural dealer network."
