21 t SANY excavator is a perfect gem for the mining industry

The SY210C-9 has variable working modes to enhance its versatility.

The 21 t SANY SY210C-9 excavator from Goscor Earth Moving (GEM), part of the Goscor Group, offers the highest level of efficiency and productivity demanded by arduous applications such as mining.

The SANY SY210C-9 features a six-cylinder in-line water-cooled Cummins 6BT5.9-C140 engine, with a rated engine power of 140 hp at 2 000 rpm, and a maximum torque of 571 Nm at 1 300 rpm. The engine is matched perfectly to the hydraulic system, thanks to the proprietary Dynamic Optimisation Matching Control System (DOMCS) developed by SANY.

This advanced control system not only boosts operating efficiency by 6%, but furthermore slashes fuel consumption by 10%, which also goes a long way in reducing the total cost of ownership, Andre Steenkamp, General Manager of the SANY range under GEM, points out.

The matched auto-idle speed function is designed for increasing fuel efficiency even further, while ensuring maximum stability during idling for smooth operation. Variable working modes include heavy-duty, standard, light-duty, and break, which enhances the versatility of the excavator in different working environments.

Additional ‘smart’ features include an advanced GPRS monitoring system and machine alerts to allow for proactive monitoring of engine hours, fuel usage, and location history. The upgraded undercarriage has a unique X-shape structure in terms of its lateral beams for extra strength and rigidity, excellent torsion, and bending-resistant performance.

The full range from the leading Chinese manufacturer of plant and mining equipment includes excavators, graders, rigid dump trucks, front-end loaders, rollers, pavers, cranes, port machinery, pile driving, and concrete pumps.

The 21 t SANY excavator, in particular, enhances GEM’s total product offering, which includes small and large equipment for industries as diverse as construction, mining, agriculture, sand and stone, forestry, roadworks, and plant hire sectors.

The main differentiator for SANY in the local market is highly-competitive pricing for this global brand, supplemented by increased parts-holding and full in-field service and technical back-up through GEM’s national branch structure. In addition, SANY equipment has been engineered specifically for African operating conditions, focusing on enhanced durability, fuel-efficiency, user-friendliness, and reliability.
