If you’re considering investing in agricultural equipment, there are likely dozens of thoughts and considerations running through your mind. Considerations such as the manufacturer or brand, the country of origin of the product, whether to go with new or second-hand, the specifications…there is a lot to evaluate when purchasing a new piece of equipment for your agricultural operation.
Most farmers and farm managers know the difference that good machinery and tools can make, and how they impact productivity and output. Choosing quality agricultural equipment and reputable suppliers offers many valuable benefits for your operations.
The benefits of high-quality machinery and equipment
When using good quality equipment, your production time will likely be reduced significantly. Using the right type of machinery for your needs, manufactured with good quality materials offers a crucial advantage for your business. In addition, as high-quality equipment is less likely to break down, you reduce the amount of downtime due to breakages or machinery interruptions. This means that you can keep your enterprise running smoothly and efficiently.
The initial costs of purchasing high-quality machinery and equipment can be steep, but the payoffs are worth it. Investing in quality equipment means reduced breakages, less downtime and fewer replacements, ultimately resulting in cost savings.
Purchasing a high-quality implement or machinery is often more expensive than your run-of-the-mill product. Don’t get stuck on the price, however, as a higher price doesn’t automatically equal better equipment. Take the time to do your research, and decide what would be a good fit for your needs and your environment. Ask around to get feedback on the items you are considering, and how they have performed for other customers. No matter your choice, it remains a considerable investment, after all, and you want to ensure that you get the best value for your money.
Most reputable suppliers offer after-sales service, which can significantly impact the experience you have with your equipment. An after-sales service from a reputable sales team ensures that you have a sounding board for any machinery questions, guidance on how to use your machinery as well as a good resource for information should you experience any technical difficulties or breakdowns.
The Value of Agriculture
Agriculture is one of the world’s most critical industries, supplying consumers with an essential product- food. According to the World Bank, the agriculture, forestry and fishing industry contributed 3.49 trillion US dollars to the global economy in 2019, with the industry in South Africa representing 6 billion dollars of that amount. In 2020, agriculture represented more than 800, 000 jobs in South Africa. Quality agricultural tools and equipment is a critical component of making that work and ensuring that the industry remains on track.
