SANY unveils new Stage V excavator

SANY has officially unveiled the company’s new 22-24 tonne class SY215C Stage V excavator.

The machine is the follow up model to the SANY SY215C Tier 4 Final excavator, which the manufacturer revealed has been ‘very popular’ with customers across the UK and Ireland.

Powered by a Cummins QSB6.7 172hp engine, the new SANY SY215C boasts a host of features designed to improve the overall experience for operators and business users.

The cabin includes an upgraded air suspension heated seat with console adjustment. There is also a new 10” LCD touchscreen display with ‘enhanced’ operator control and functionality, giving the operator greater command over the set-up.

Further cabin features include an intelligent climate control function with in-cab sensors, helping to automatically adjust the temperature. A fast-charge USB point is also provided.

One added feature of the 10” LCD touchscreen display is the ‘fault code query’ function, which allows operators to see more detailed information on fault codes which may occur during operation. This, SANY added, allows for quicker diagnosis of any issues.

Safety is boosted by a high specification 270 degree camera system as standard (with 360 degree as option), combined with LED lights all round the excavator. The lights have a ‘follow me home’ function for dark evenings, automatically switching off at an adjustable time after the operator has turned off the engine and locked the cab.

Fully proportional controls also come as standard, allowing operators to perform grab and rotation functions at the same time.
