Welcome To Erdvark

The trade name, Erdvark, existed for the last 70 years. The Marais family noticed that in areas where the Aardvark (Erdvark) burrow their holes, the grain grew much better and the Marais family developed a plough that worked deeper than existing ploughs. The project was successful and that lead to the start-up of the factory in Moorreesburg. Around 1990, the factory was sold to the Rossouw brothers and was moved to Trawal with its personnel.

In the beginning, the factory concentrated on moldboard ploughs but through the years the series was enlarged. Mostly disc ploughs, graders and other agricultural implements are 100% manufactured, developed and tested at the factory and then distributed through South Africa. Erdvark also exported its implements to Namibia, Angola, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, DRC, Chad, Mozambique, Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana, Malawi and Uganda. We also manage to send two implements to Kuwait and a TBP5000 Leveling grader to Australia.

Every year the implements are exhibited at Nampo in Bothaville where the dealer and farmer have a chance to see the implements. Erdvark believes in minimum maintenance which is suitable for the African conditions. The implement has been developed so that it is reliable in African conditions, maintenance can be done easily on the farm with affordable parts that are manufactured in South Africa. Over the years Erdvark has established good relations with a dealer network throughout South Africa and neighboring states that can serve the farmer.

Erdvark still believes in the delivery of quality implements to the farmer to do the work on hand without spending to much time on reparations in critical times. We’ve got a wide range of implements that can be delivered in a short time to meet the clients specific demands whereas imported products offer a limited range of products available. Most of Erdvark’s implements can be adapted to prepare new land where most of the competitors are no match for the task.
