Efficiency and reliability – that is what farmers need in their equipment, and that is why farmers flock to the Agritech Expo in Lusaka to search for equipment that can meet their standards. AgriWes has a reputation for efficiency, reliability, integrity and customer service, and farmers could see some of the best CLAAS machines at their stand, because they now also sell CLAAS equipment.

AgriWes is based in Mkushi and is a distributor for some of the most respected chemical companies in the world, including Syngenta, Villa Crop and Arysta. In 2012 AgriWes branched out from only chemicals and into the world of machinery and began distributing the whole range of Väderstad implements, including precision planters, according to Cobus de Kock, Marketing Manager of AgriWes.

In 2014 AgriWes expanded their machinery range even more by becoming the Zambian dealership for CLAAS via Kempston Agri, the CLAAS importers for Southern Africa.

“We supply a wide range of CLAAS tractors, including the regulated tractors which use the Tier 2 and Tier 3 engines. We have the Talos, Axos, Arion 400 series, Arion 600 series, Axion range including mowers and rakes. Our biggest selling range of CLAAS equipment is the ROLLANT 340 baler,” says Cobus.

A look at CLAAS implements at Agritech Expo:

The CLAAS DISCO 2800 Contour CLAAS provides a wide range of mowers, including the DISCO 2800 with a working width of 2,60 metres, and the DISCO 4000 which cuts 3,80 metres wide.

These mowers are equipped with MAX CUT mower bars which has a wave shape that enables the large satellite wheels to be placed well to the front with uniform disc intervals to ensure a perfect cut configuration under all operating conditions. Only the highest quality materials have been used, for maximum service life. The MAX CUT bar is permanently lubricated, and is therefore maintenance free.


CLAAS designers have also made the LINER 370 available so that farmers with smaller tractors can also enjoy the benefits of a high-performance rake. The side delivery rakes follow easily behind the tractor, even over a sloping terrain. Once hitched up, the wide-track machine stays in line behind the tractor both in the field and on the road.

Maintenance on the LINER is very simple. The rotor housing is airtight and moving parts are continuously lubricated to ensure entirely maintenance free operation and resistance to wear.
