Northern Cape gets three excavators

Goscor Earth Moving (GEM) Kathu, has continued its growth in the Northern Cape mining region with the recent delivery of three Sany SY500H excavators to the AMG Group (Africa Mining Group).

This major new manganese mining client currently has a fleet of ten excavators, ten load-haul dump trucks, and six front-end loaders. The three Sany SY500H excavators were procured to assist in extending the AMG Group’s existing mining area, thereby boosting monthly production, Chief Operating Officer

Scott Yuan explains Commenting on the decision to opt for Sany equipment, Scott highlights that comparative brand research conducted by the AMG Group, necessitated by the significant capital outlay of this acquisition, revealed that Sany was both cost-competitive and featured superior performance.

“In addition, the back-up service and technical support we receive from GEM Kathu is great.” With a rated power output of 298kW, a dig depth of 8 255mm, and a bucket breakout force of 275kN, the Sany

SY500H is ideal for heavy-duty mining operations. Additional features include a removable counterweight that reduces travel restrictions and cuts transport costs, while the large engine compartment facilitates maintenance. Service cycles are extended even further due to long-life oil and filters. The optimised cabin ensures maximum operator comfort, visibility, and safety.
