This year’s Electra Mine Expo, held in Johannesburg, South Africa, was a well-attended event with nice weather throughout the week. South African TEI Distributer DDE (Demolition and Drilling Equipment) had an outdoor booth showcasing many TEI drifters and attachments mounted on skid steers, mini excavators, and Brokk carriers.
The new TE326 and TE726 drifters drew serious attention from the mining industry and OEM manufacturers, especially the MSM326 skid steer attachment mounted on a Manitou carrier. This drilling attachment turns the carrier into a mini-jumbo with remote radio operation. This MSM left the show and went straight to Manitou’s equipment yard for promotional photos to be distributed worldwide.
The Electra Mine Expo lasted five days, making for a long show for everyone working the booth. It was nice to have consistent traffic to keep us busy during these extended days. After the show on Saturday, we all took a journey to the Kruger National Park to see some African wildlife.
Also, after the expo, we had a chance to meet with several of our wonderful clients. We’re so excited about what the future has in store!
