Sany has in­tro­duced the redesigned SY16C zero tail-swing mini ex­ca­va­tor to the Aus­tralian mar­ket.

The SY16 fea­tures a com­pact de­sign with a re­tractable un­der­car­riage and de­flectable boom that al­lows the unit to ac­cess job sites nar­rower than 1m.

Sany says it is look­ing to ex­plore Aus­tralia’s high-end mini ex­ca­va­tor mar­ket.

“Sany has a wide range of prod­ucts which are high-qual­ity and ro­bust. We be­lieve it will have a very good per­for­mance in Aus­tralia,” the com­pany says.

The SY16 weighs in at just over 1.7 tonnes and is pow­ered by an 11.2kW Tier 4 Fi­nal Yan­mar diesel. The lit­tle dig­ger’s 30 lpm hy­draulics can pro­duce up to 15.2kN of break­out force at the bucket.

Sany says the hy­draulics are load-sen­si­tive and de­signed to ad­just hy­draulic flow based on the ap­pli­ca­tion. The SY16 is com­pat­i­ble with a range of stan­dard at­tach­ments in­clud­ing hy­draulic shears, jack­ham­mers and grap­ples.

The op­er­a­tors’ sta­tion on the SY16 has a fully ROPS/FOPS cer­ti­fied canopy, along with er­gonomic joy­stick con­trols and an emer­gency en­gine kill switch.

The mini ex­ca­va­tor’s body has been re­in­forced and op­ti­mised to re­duce me­chan­i­cal stress be­ing con­cen­trated in one area. Sany says this re­design el­e­ment can ex­tend the ma­chine’s ser­vice life by up to 30 per cent.

As men­tioned, the SY16 has ad­justable tracks that can be shifted be­tween 980mm and 1350mm. The tracks are also eas­ily swap­pable be­tween steel tracks for off-road use and rub­ber tracks for travel on paved sur­faces.

The com­pany says the SY16 mini ex­ca­va­tor has been ex­ten­sively tested over more than 2000 hours and the ma­chine’s key com­po­nents have un­der­gone more than 800,000 in­di­vid­ual fa­tigue tests to en­sure max­i­mum dura­bil­ity.
