Goscor Earth Moving (GEM), part of the Goscor Group, is continuing its introduction of the latest Sany equipment into the local market with the launch of a new hydraulic excavator for the toughest African operating conditions.
The SY215C hydraulic excavator is one of five models developed specifically by Sany for the international market, GEM Sales Director Andre Steenkamp explains. It is equipped with a Mitsubishi 6D34TL engine.
The positive flow controlled hydraulic system means that the main pump’s displacement is directly proportional to the signal pressure from the operator’s joystick. This means that the controller determines the real-time flow demand and variation trend of the actuator, in addition to regulating the displacement.
With a 0.93m3 bucket capacity, a ground pressure of 47kPa, an operating weight of 22 200kg, and 2 000rpm, the SY215C hydraulic excavator has been developed and designed to perform in the toughest working conditions.
An X-beam design, based on a box-section structure with high strength and durability, provides excellent torsion- and bending-resistance. The track rollers, carrier rollers, and idlers all use seal-in lubrication for improved longevity. The triple grouser track shoes, rolled with a high-strength alloy, provide for excellent contact, stability, and durability.
The track links feature additional reinforced ribs for increased strength and shock absorption when travelling over rough surfaces. A highlight of the SY215C hydraulic excavator is a totally-redesigned boom and arm structure that minimises stress points.
Comfort and operator safety are also key, in addition to simplified maintenance and service to reduce time and costs, allowing for the lowest total cost of ownership for end users.
