SANY proves a gem in the manganese and iron ore mining sectors

Goscor Earthmoving (GEM) Kathu, a multi-franchise branch of Goscor Industrial & Construction Equipment, continues to enjoy success with SANY excavators and front-end loaders in the mining industry in the Northern Cape.

With manganese and iron ore being the main minerals mined here, the robust yet flexible SANY equipment is ideal for this harsh application in an extremely arduous operating environment, Melanie Uys from GEM Kathu comments.

Longstanding client WEGO Africa has just added another SANY SY500 excavator to its current fleet of four, in addition to acquiring two new SANY SY956 front-end loaders. The latest orders were completed in September and October 2019, with the equipment transported from Johannesburg to site.
To date, WEGO Africa has eight SANY machines in its fleet, in addition to a Bobcat S450 skidsteer loader for general materials-handling applications. Commenting on the level of customer service and technical back-up that continues to give GEM Kathu a competitive edge, Uys explains that the latest excavators were fitted with pre-cleaners to prevent the air and oil filters from clogging up, which can have a detrimental impact on scheduled maintenance.

GEM Kathu has a full stockholding of essential spares, in addition to two experienced and qualified technicians, who are able to undertake field service if required. “While we are a relatively small branch, the mining industry in the Northern Cape is showing green shoots, which bodes well for our future expansion.”

SANY’s growing footprint in the region is already attracting the attention of other mining operators, due to their requirement for cost-effective yet durable equipment ideal for African operating conditions. “What also gives us a leading edge, especially among emerging contractors and junior miners, is our access to Goscor Finance,” she concludes.
