During last week I was lucky enough to visit our dealer Mecom on the beautiful island of Mauritius to take a closer look at the two pieces of BIGAB 22 - 27 that Fors MW have working in the environment. The trailers are working there as a part of mechanical harvest of sugar cane. A lot of the canes are still cut by hand.
It was a good time to pay a visit since the harvest is now drawing to a close for the season so this gave me a good chance to evaluate the performance of the trailers and see how we can improve for the future. The price of the cane is losing its support so the working efficiency is vital to the operation. The target for each harvesting gang is 500 tons/daily, yields are around 70 ton of hectares so the trailers are kept very busy. Distance to the factory is anything from 2 km to 50 km and there are four factories on the Island.
Some good discussions were had during my visit and the hospitality showed by Rolland Boulle and his team was first class, as ever it is always a pleasure to deal with pro - active dealers such as Mecom and we look forward to many years of future business.
On behalf of all of us at Fors MW I would like to thank Luc Arnaud and Rolland for the work and assistance with the project over the past 12 months.
P.S. The weather was good as well=) Not bad for an Englishman as myself this time of year....
