On the excavator front at ConExpo 2020, Sany launched two new machines.
First up is the new Sany SY155U short radius excavator. Powered by a 105- horsepower engine, the machine weighs in at 35,174 pounds. It digs to 18 feet and offers a maximum reach of 27 feet, 4 inches on top of a minimal tail swing.
The tight tail swing allows you to work in confined spaces and reduces the risk of a damage to the counterweight or the possibility of the tail swinging out into traffic on road jobs. When you have to tear into something tough, the SY155U will give you 23,155 pounds of bucket breakout force.
Lift capabilities are 5,216 pound-feet to the front, and 3,393 pound-feet to the side. Tracks measure 24-inches wide. Under the sheet metal it uses a Kawasaki main pump and valves and an Isuzu engine.
With a step up to 164 horsepower, the Sany SY225C excavator fills the gap between the company’s SY215C and SY265C excavators.
The new SY225C machine reaches to 33-feet, 10 inches and offers a bucket breakout force of 28,551 pounds. Side lifting force is 7,972 pound- feet and to the front 11,920 pound-feet.
The SY225C rides on 31-inch wide tracks and weighs 54,013 pounds. Easy-to-access filters and in-display diagnostics reduce maintenance times and LED work lights provide visibility at night or in low light conditions. Quick coupler plumbing and pre-plumbed auxiliary lines make connecting and controlling attachments easy.
The SY225C also has Kawasaki pumps and runs on a Cummins engine. It is the third Sany excavator model to be produced at the company’s headquarters in Georgia.
