Rokbak is getting ready to present its RA30 articulated hauler alongside its long-term dealer for Northern Ireland, Sleator Plant, at the Balmoral Show from May 11th to May 14th.

“Sleator Plant has excellent links with our customer base in Northern Ireland and a long history with our machines,” says Paul Douglas, Managing Director of Rokbak. “The new Rokbak RA30 and RA40 are the most productive and efficient articulated haulers we’ve made, and with a booming articulated hauler market, there’s never been a better time to invest in a new machine. Sleator Plant is a highly respected and dependable dealer that offers excellent customer service. We are proud to join the team on their stand and present the RA30 to existing and future customers.”

Rokbak articulated haulers are a great investment

Sleator Plant specialises in the supply of machinery to the construction and material rehandling sectors, with a focus on innovation, quality engineering and value for money. The company provides high-quality, responsive service and reliable parts availability for Rokbak customers across Northern Ireland.

“We’re excited to be showcasing the Rokbak RA30 at this year’s show,” says Aaron McCaul, General Manager at Sleator Plant. “We were delighted to display the new look RA30 at the delayed 2021 Balmoral Show last September – the machine garnered huge interest and excitement from our customers. The colour and brand are distinctive and strong. The new, energised look is something that appeals to our customer base, and we’ve had excellent customer feedback – particularly around reliability, performance and Sleator customer care. The Rokbak package is one that can be truly described as a great investment. We are proud to be representing Rokbak again at this year’s show.”

Built for hard work

Rokbak is part of the Volvo Group and a division of Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE). The company’s articulated haulers are known for being robust, reliable, easy to operate, and easy to maintain. The 28 tonne (30.9 US ton) RA30 articulated hauler is made for the toughest jobs and roughest sites, from quarries and infrastructure developments to commercial construction projects. With true independent front suspension as standard, it offers more control and comfort for operators. The RA30’s new transmission and high-performance engine improve fuel efficiency, operator comfort and deliver power when it’s needed.

The RA40 is ideally suited for working at quarry, mine and construction sites.

The 38 tonne (41.9 US ton) RA40 is a heavy-duty articulated hauler that makes light work of large-scale quarry, mine and construction jobs. Offering high capacity and performance, the RA40 delivers cost-effective productivity in the toughest conditions. The high-performance engine balances controlled power with maximum fuel efficiency. The modulating transmission retarder is coupled with an efficient exhaust brake and fully enclosed oil-cooled multidisc brakes for total control – even on steep inclines.

For the European market, both machines feature the latest EU Stage V emissions-compliant engine, boasting up to a 7% improvement in fuel efficiency compared to older EU Stage IV engines.

Balmoral Show is Northern Ireland’s largest agri-food event. It will take place at Balmoral Park in Lisburn, near Belfast, Northern Ireland.
