Jawahar Kapasi, Managing Director - Safari Construction Equipments
Looking at current trends in the construction industry, small and medium contractors are now moving towards mechanization for cutting down on time. New jobs demand stringent quality controls and require timely execution and completion. Hence, demand for concrete mixing machines are now shifting towards single user control-based machines such as Self-Loading Transit concrete mixers. Safari has kept up with the current trend and is happy to announce the launch of its Safari MAX range of self-loading mixers during Excon.

Safari Self Loading Concrete Mixers reduce labour and time at construction sites.
Safari Self Loading Concrete Mixers are powerful concrete mixers reducing labour and time by manifold on construction sites.

A single operator can weigh and load the exact required amount of cement, sand and aggregates from different locations, and mix the concrete while in transit to the site. The work is done within little time and by a single operator. The main features of the machine include Four Wheel Drive, Reliable, High Performance Concrete Mixing, Compact Design, and Fully Automatic Operation.

Safari is now moving towards providing IE3 motors with its machines.
Safari has since the last few years has started developing machines which are environment friendly and more fuel efficient. Diesel engines are specifically designed for concrete mixing since generic diesel engines are designed for various workloads and are not very efficient. Safari has stopped using IE1 electric motors since a few years, and is now moving towards providing IE3 motors with its machines.

We have also launched mini variants of large machines for meeting small workload requirements, hence consuming less resources. At the last Excon we had launched Safari Bar Bending machines and this year we are launching a mini variant of bar bending for meeting a specific requirement of Ring Making. This is smaller and lighter than the previous machine and hence consumes fewer resources; 90% of customer needs are met with this variant.
