The R 994B undergoing maintenance upgrades at Cowal Gold Operations.

EX302, an R 994B at the Cowal Gold Operations in NSW commissioned in 2005, is the oldest R 994B in the southern hemisphere with over 82,000 SMU (Service Meter Units).

The excavator recently underwent maintenance to extend the machine’s life and included upgrades to the cab, the fuel tank and ladder kit, and HD bucket links.

The only R 994B that has a higher hours than EX302 is in Russia with more than 86,000 SMU.

We look forward to following the progress of this machine as it reaches its next milestone.
