KH Plant motor graders in Zambia

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

Our stringent rebuild process means you can expect all the benefits of a new motor grader, at a fraction of the cost of a new machine.

Why not buy a grader in Zambia?

The Zambian construction industry has continued to grow at an exceptional pace of roughly 17.5% per year. Notwithstanding a slight slowdown over the past two years, this growth looks set to continue.

Nonetheless, local businesses continue to face challenges. Among these are increasing project costs – due largely to rising material and equipment costs, corruption, late payment (especially for government projects) and competition from foreign contractors.

In this context, it's vital to control expenses.

Converted into kwacha, prices for new graders in Zambia are prohibitively high. It's not cheap for dealers to import heavy equipment from China or the United States, and this adds to prices. An unfavourable dollar to kwacha exchange rate doesn't help.

Another alternative is to buy used motor graders. However, there's no way Zambia's secondhand market can keep up with current demand. Also, secondhand graders are a high-risk prospect, with no guarantees and no after-sales support.

Transporting a grader to Zambia

It's generally more cost-effective to buy a rebuilt motor grader from KH Plant in South Africa and then to transport it to Zambia than it is to import heavy machinery – typically priced in US dollars – from a different continent.

Unlike secondhand motor graders bought directly from pre-used markets, all KH Plant graders come with a full warranty and after-sales support.

At KH Plant, we can also provide guidance on the best transportation options.

Motor grader finance

We offer Zambian customers advice about securing finance for motor graders.

Benefits of our graders

We don't simply "fix up" or fine-tune secondhand motor graders. Instead, our expert technicians rebuild every grader from the ground up, to the strictest technical standards.

At KH Plant, we also integrate modifications specified in Caterpillar's technical bulletins in rebuilds. This means our clients can benefit from improvements to original grader designs.

A grader we recondition will look, perform and last like a new motor grader – and every grader from KH Plant is backed by a full warranty and after-sales support.

For more than 90 years, Caterpillar has been providing motor graders that offer superior quality and reliability. With KH Plant, you can choose to buy the best while still getting an affordable motor grader in Zambia. Contact us for more information or to discuss your needs.
