SANY Is At The Front End Of Mining With Its Latest Wheel Loader

Goscor Earth Moving (GEM), part of the Goscor Group, is making its presence felt in the mining industry with the launch of a new front end loader that offers end users the lowest total cost of ownership.

With a bucket capacity of 2.7 m3 to 4.5 m3, the SYL956H1 front-end loader is ideal for heavy-duty mining operations, GEM Sales Director Andre Steenkamp comments. The highly efficient drive system features a rotary automatic gearbox that boosts travel speed by 10% and increases towing force by over 6%. The rated load is 5 000 kg, rated power is 162 kW, and the maximum lifting force is 172 kN.

The high-pressure fixed variable confluence hydraulic system ramps up operating efficiency by over 12%, while total fuel consumption is slashed by more than 15%. The panoramic super-large cab has a noise level of only 75 dBa for enhanced operator comfort, together with features such as an adjustable suspended seat, and a multi-directional spatial air-conditioner for both heating and cooling.

The fingertip-operation pilot system has been configured with a variety of functional buttons in the cab. Highly-reliable key components such as the DANA gearbox and heavy-duty structural members result in an extended service life of up to 10 000 hours. Safety features include a fully-hydraulic service brake, electrically-controlled parking brake, and a cab with FOPS and ROPS functions.

“We expect SANY’s market share in South Africa to increase significantly as a result of the distribution agreement concluded with GEM,” Managing Director Barry Owen stresses. “Mining is recovering, and while the South African economy has been continuously weak for years, it should come to the point where it bounces back a little.”
