Metso - Construction and Mining
Barloworld Equipment distributes a comprehensive range of Metso mobile crushing and screening plants for construction and mining in all of its Southern African territories and in Portugal and Spain.
Whilst brand and build quality are key issues, boosting bottom line performance should be your overriding consideration in earthmoving machine selection. In this respect, profitability is impacted by seven major factors that must be taken into account, of which the purchase price is the least significant.This point is well illustrated in the below graph.
The Barloworld Equipment Professional Services Group provides customers with two interlinked services designed specifically to positively impact the first and most important four factors on the above graph. These are:
These are daily factors of consideration when owning earthmoving equipment and machinery.
The Professional Services Group works on the premise that lowest cost per cubic metre or ton = lowest possible hourly costs ÷ highest possible hourly productivity.
A low machine retail price can be wiped out in a few months if the productivity of the machine is not optimised.
Included in the Professional Services group are:
1. The Product and Applications Group: this is managed by product specialists who bring many years of combined expertise to optimise customer profitability.
2. The Operator Academy: the academy offers professional training and accreditation to Cat Machine Operators.
The common factor linking the Product and Applications Group to the Operator Academy is skills development. This is for the benefit of customer employees who are operators to site supervisors and senior engineers. Barloworld Equipment’s applications and training experts aim to spend their time where it counts most; on customer sites, where they can assist your employees in achieving optimum equipment usage through a combination of correct site layout, application of the machines to the relevant jobs, and correct operating procedures.
This helps to advise on how haul road gradients affect production, bucket design, size, cycle times and tyre choice. This includes bringing in international Caterpillar experts to help perfect operating techniques.
Designed to keep pace with your business requirements, Barloworld Equipment has developed a suite of flexible ownership and/or rental options to ensure that you always have the optimum mechanises solutions.
In addition to new equipment sales, Barloworld Equipment's CAT Certified Used programme caters for customers in the market for low hour machines backed by a comprehensive Caterpillar warranty. A high percentage of these machines are ex-CAT Rental Store fleet units.
Meanwhile, the Barloworld CAT Rental Store meets the needs of customers seeking to rent mining and construction machines for specific applications and usually for shorter term projects. Rental periods are typically 30 days or longer, with the option to enter into a Rental with Intention to Purchase (RIP) agreement. RIP programmes are ideal for start-up operations with limited upfront access to capital.
The Barloworld Equipment CAT Rental Store is the industry leader in the rental of large construction equipment and mining machinery, as well as below 20-ton general construction machines for building sites, landscaping and other smaller applications. A comprehensive range of compressors is also available for rental.
All repairs and maintenance of rental units are carried out by Barloworld Equipment's trained service technicians in the workshop or in the field.
A high utilisation, rapid roll-out policy is pursued to maintain a young, healthy rental fleet and provide stock for our CAT Certified Used (CCU) offering.
CAT Certified Used (CCU) is a low hour CAT machine sourced exclusively from Barloworld Equipment's rental fleet and
sold >with a 12-month warranty. The benefits are cost savings, conformity to strict Caterpillar standards and immediate
The CCU brand makes CAT machines accessible to many smaller and emerging businesses that need Caterpillar reliability
and quality but do not have sufficient capital to invest in new CAT machines.
Because CCU machines conform to strict technical requirements, their overall health is guaranteed and hence they are safer to operate and less likely to need costly after sales support than most used machines available in the market.
Barloworld Equipment runs a continuous process improvement program, based on Lean 6 Sigma, which aims to give the customer what they want, when they want it and at the right cost. The program has improved and continues to improve Barloworld Equipment’s effectiveness in key areas.
As part of 6 Sigma, a ‘War on Waste’ campaign aims to reduce the amount of wasted costs that are produced in our day-to-day activities. The campaign has captured the imagination of many employees and resulted in significant savings across the business.
