SCANIA’S TOTAL SOLUTIONS FOR QUARRIES When making buying decisions, quarries need to evaluate everything that surrounds the product – from financing and insurance through to maintenance programmes. With its total solutions approach, Scania South Africa has every parameter covered.
MAXIMISING LOAD/ HAUL PRODUCTIVITY The productivity of any surface mine largely hinges on the efficiency of its load and haul system. Yet, loading and hauling run of mine material represents a very significant component of the total oper- ating cost. Consequently, the incentive to reduce cost in this area remains high.
