Mining-services company E&J Construction of eMalahleni has acquired a Sany SY750H excavator from Goscor Earth Moving (GEM) for a coal strip-mining contract in Mpumalanga.
The giant 75 ton excavator is the latest addition to the fleet of Sany equipment owned by E&J Construction, which includes two SY956H front-end loaders, a SMG200 grader, a SY500H excavator, and a SY335 excavator.
Director, Jerry Mnisi, reveals that the company plans to supplement the SY750H excavator with Sany rigid dump trucks in order to offer client a total mining solution.
GEM MD, Barry Owen, has been instrumental in assisting E&J Construction with its procurement strategy over this period, facilitating finance and strengthening its aftermarket support and technical back-up.
The Sany SY750H features an Isuzu 6WG1X engine, with a maximum torque
of 2 138 Nm at 1 500 rpm. “The Isuzu engine brand, known for its durability and fuel economy, is an integral part of Sany’s strategy to source only the best components for its equipment. Kawasaki pumps are also used to ensure constant hydraulic flow,” Barry highlights.
In addition, the Sany SY750H boasts a self-diagnostic system that flags any
technical issues, thereby reducing downtime. The standard warranty allows for care-free digging for the first yearand- a-half, or 3 000 hours, whichever
is achieved first.
