Plant watch: Dezzi MG80T
This grader was spotted at a brick works in Gauteng. The Dezzi brand has never been known for its aesthetics, but this locally-manufactured machine has certainly bridged the divide between affordability and quality.
It has become a dependable workhorse for smaller industries and municipalities, where upfront capital costs are a hindrance. However, it has also carved itself a niche in the very demanding timber haulage sector, where its loaders are a common name, in an industry that is enjoying phenomenal growth.
This brand is manufactured in South Africa at Desmond Equipment’s facilities in Port Shepstone. Company management has played a very prominent role in lobbying government to enforce its localisation targets.
