KH Plant motor graders in Tanzania

At KH Plant, we offer our clients in Tanzania fully rebuilt Caterpillar 140G, 140H and 140K motor graders.

We're based in South Africa, but we provide our high-quality, reconditioned graders to clients throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.

Why not buy a grader in Tanzania?

The construction industry in Tanzania is booming; a trend that looks set to continue. The industry's growth rate has roughly doubled since 2010, and increased government investment in infrastructure projects is reversing the slight slowdown we saw in 2015.

In fact, the government has allocated as much as 25% of its total budget, excluding public debt service, to development projects.

This doesn't mean it's smooth sailing for Tanzanian companies. The industry is very competitive, it's challenging to get funding and equipment costs are high.

Buying a new motor grader from a local dealership can be hugely expensive. Most graders (or at minimum, their key components) are shipped in from China or the United States. Their price tags reflect high shipping costs and an unfavourable Tanzanian shilling to dollar rate.

The other option is to buy heavy equipment secondhand. However, this is a risky alternative, with no guarantees or after-sales support for secondhand motor graders.

Transporting a grader to Tanzania

It's generally a lot less expensive to buy a rebuilt motor grader from KH Plant and ship it to Tanzania than to buy new, or to import heavy machinery from a different continent.

Also, South Africa offers a more favourable currency conversion rate than the TZ shilling to US dollar rate typically used for US or Chinese imports.

At KH Plant, we can offer our clients advice on the best shipping options.

Motor grader finance

We don't provide direct access to funding, but we do offer our customers advice about securing finance for motor graders.

Benefits of our graders

We don't just "fix up" secondhand motor graders. Instead, we specialise in restoring Cat graders to as new condition, though a highly rigorous process.

This means that a motor grader you buy from KH Plant will look, perform and last the same as a brand new grader – at a fraction of the cost of a new machine.

Our expert technicians may even improve on the original design of a grader, integrating modifications specified in manufacturers' technical information bulletins as they rebuild a particular grader.

Each of our motor graders comes with a full warranty and after-sales support.

Caterpillar has dominated the motor grader industry for over 90 years, and is synonymous with reliability and high quality. With KH Plant, you can opt for the best while still getting an affordable motor grader in Tanzania. Contact us for more information or to discuss your needs.
