GEM supplies four SANY SYL956s to Asante Dinoko for Eskom contract

Asante Dinoko, a Level 1 Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) company providing a comprehensive range of engineering and environmental services industries from municipalities to mining, water authorities and power generation, has taken delivery of four SANY SYL956 front-end loaders from Goscor Earthmoving (GEM).

The front-end loaders will be deployed for coal-stockpile management at various power stations for electricity utility Eskom. The SANY SYL956s were specially modified for this application with 4.6 m3 coal buckets, as opposed to the standard 3 m3 bucket, with the entire order delivered successfully by end May, SANY Operations Manager Murray Leith reports.

This was achieved during the ongoing lockdown, as Asante Disanko is an essential service provider. Apart from competitive pricing and low operating costs, GEM is able to offer financing options from Goscor Finance.

This gives it a significant edge over its competitors in servicing its broad client base. “We have dedicated service technicians who are able to go out to site for the mandatory 250-hour service intervals. Thus we are able to provide a well-rounded package,” Leith comments.

In addition to Eskom, GEM is supplying equipment and back-up support to a range of mining-industry contractors. Leith attributes the company’s ongoing success in these markets during the lockdown due to the low total cost of ownership of the SANY equipment, backed-up by dedicated customer and technical support.

The SANY SYL956 front-end loaders feature a Cummins Tier 3 QSL8.9 engine for maximum power, high efficiency and large displacement. A multipoint fuel injection system means instantaneous throttle response, enhanced fuel efficiency and reduced noise.

The customised Dana axis-shift transmission with electronic control system allows for automatic shifting. A forward/reverse handle and fingertip control ensures operator comfort and ease-of-use, while the combination of solenoid valves and logic control means smoother shifting and a quicker response.

The load-sensitive hydraulic system provides for a perfect balance between speed and power, resulting in a 10% to 15% energy saving. The high-pressure hydraulic system maximises displacement for a higher breakout and lifting force.
