SANY excavators are ideal for arduous mining applications

22 January 2020

6 December 2019: Excavators from SANY, distributed locally by Goscor Earthmoving (GEM), are
ideal for arduous mining applications such as iron ore, chrome, and manganese, GEM Sales Consultant Murray Leith comments. “These are strong, reliable machines with simplified electronic
components giving you minimal downtime,” Leith adds. GEM also has
qualified service technicians in all major mining areas.

An example of GEM’s recent
successes in these mining segments include supplying two SANY SY335 medium
excavators to a chrome mining contractor in Limpopo. In the Northern Cape, the
Kathu branch is heavily involved with major mining houses for their manganese

tough operating conditions, equipment must be highly, which is where SANY’s
philosophy of using only world-class components like Isuzu engines and Kawasaki
hydraulics comes into its own. With an emphasis on cost-effectiveness, the SANY
SY335C medium excavator features an auto deceleration system that reduces fuel
consumption by 5% to 10%.

When an
operation stops for 3.5 seconds, the engine speed drops automatically to idle
level, and maintains this idling state. The strengthened structure makes it an
efficient and robust machine for a range of applications. The dual-pump,
dual-circuit constant power control system means that the Isuzu engine outputs
a continuously strong operating force.

excavators in the range include the 50 t SY500H and the 76 t SY750, both with
greater breakout forces and digging depths for larger mining operations.
Additional features to boost productivity include bigger buckets and increased
engine power.

on the current state of the mining industry, Leith highlights the growth in
contract mining with a high number of new entrants. “We have found that there
has been an increase in mining activities, as seen in increased sales over the
past few months.”

This is
particularly encouraging given the slow state of the economy, combined with the
reluctance of banks to finance yellow metal. “However, we are able to assist
contractors in this regard by having access to our own in-house finance, which
has proved to be a major differentiator for us,” Leith concludes.
