Sunward plans to boost sales for its trend-setting mini excavators
Sunward says it sets high quality standards for its mini excavators range
Sunward is pushing hard in Europe with its new mini excavator range, which includes a sophisticated range of standard and zero tailswing models The SWE25 is a 2.6tonne standard mini excavator that features a 15.5kW Yanmar diesel and offers a dig depth of 2.4m. This machine is certified for use in Europe and has the important CE mark. Product quality has been set as a key precedent by Sunward for its machines and a company spokesperson said, “This class is one of the most popular models in the German market, especially for France and Germany.”
The SWE30UB, SWE40UB and SWE50B are all zero tailswing models weighing 3.5, 4.1 and 5tonnes respectively, with the smaller machine aimed specifically at the Italian market. Power for the SWE30UB and SWE50B comes from Yanmar diesels delivering 19kW and 26kW respectively while the Kubota engine in the SWE40UB is rated at 24kW. The spokesperson said, “Yanmar and Kubota are both strategic partners of Sunward.”
Meanwhile the company is also keen to develop sales for its innovative remote-controlled SWEROB unit. This 2tonne class machine is electrically powered with an 11kW motor and its battery pack offers up to 6 hours working on a single charged. Designed for use in unsafe working areas, the machine can be operated remotely at distances of up to 500m using its German-supplied control box. This suits duties in difficult demolition or tunnelling applications, as well as on sites where reducing noise can be a key issue.
