Nampo welcomes back an old name
Visitors to the Nampo Agricultural Show, taking place at Bothaville between May 16 and 19, might be surprised to see a somewhat forgotten name in attendance. Navistar International Southern Africa (NISA) will once again be exhibiting a range of agricultural-related solutions, following great interest at the last Nampo.
John Barnett, dealer operations and business development manager, says that NISA offers a wide range of genuine branded, proven, heavy-duty parts for International vehicles, which are also suitable for other trucks with North American drivelines.
“A selection of these well-known branded parts, such as International, Eaton/Fuller, Meritor/Rockwell, Spicer, Hendrickson, SKF, Bendix, Bosch, Goodyear, Horton and Donaldson, will be exhibited on the stand.
“A range of Fleetrite parts – which is Navistar’s brand of approved aftermarket parts that carry a full parts warranty – will be on display, including Fleetrite filters, clutches, starter motors, batteries, fan belts, oils and coolants,” he explains.
Navistar will also feature two MWM six-cylinder engines, one of which will be suitable for agricultural applications and the other for backup generator requirements.
“NISA is now the official importer and distributor of MWM engines and parts sourced from Navistar’s subsidiary engine manufacturing company in Brazil. More than 8 500 MWM engines have been supplied to southern Africa in diverse market sectors such as automotive, agriculture, generator power, construction and marine applications,” Barnett adds.
“One of the features of the Navistar exhibit will be a 9400 6×4 truck tractor with a hi-rise double sleeper cab and a high level of trim and finish, showing that an old truck can still look great and do an excellent job,” Barnett concludes.
