Sunward Europe set for a double debut at Hillhead
The SWE 50UF mini-excavator – one of two new machines from Sunward Europe that will be making their UK debut at Hillhead 2024

Plant and equipment manufacturers Sunward Europe have announced their line-up for Hillhead 2024. Two excavators making their UK debuts – the SWE 50UF mini and SWE 60UFED compact – will line up alongside other models from the manufacturer’s best-selling ranges.

The SWE 50UF mini and SWE 60UFED excavators will be showcased on Sunward’s static display of six machines, while their 21-tonne top-of-the-line medium excavator, the SWE 215F-5A, will physically demonstrate the company’s unique mix of quality and value for money.

Building on the success of Sunward’s zero-tail range, which earned an iF Design Award, the five-tonne SWE 50UF mini-excavator, which is positioned between the SWE 35UF and SWE 60UF, features zero-tail swing, making it ideal for constrained spaces. Boasting a Kubota D1803-T engine, its user-friendly design ensures efficient control and easy maintenance.

Also new to Hillhead is Sunward’s SWE 60UFED, a six-tonne electric compact excavator which features a high-torque permanent magnet synchronous motor for exceptional efficiency, minimal energy usage, and emission-free operation.

The demonstration SWE 215F-5A is the perfect fit for large construction, quarrying, or demolition work. Designed to be versatile and durable, with a long lifetime, the SWE 215F’s clever design, Cummins EU Stage V B6.7 engine, and enhanced hydraulics system deliver power, smooth operation, and high productivity.

Complementing the two new models on Sunward’s static display will be the 2.5-tonne SWE 25UF mini-excavator – the zero-tail version of the SWE 25F. Its unique zero-tail compact design makes it the perfect option for tight jobsites where power is required, whilst its light weight makes it exceptionally easy to transport.

Sunward’s nine-tonne SWE 90UF-2PB compact excavator was launched at the end of 2021 and remains the shortest nine-tonne short-tail excavator (by almost 20cm) available in the market. Developed especially for Europe, it combines a compact size with heavy-duty performance. Its very short-tail swing and two-piece boom allow it to work in a wide variety of urban tasks, including operating in confined spaces and along walls.

Also on the stand will be Sunward’s 1.2-tonne SWTL 4538 compact tracked loader, which, thanks to its suspended undercarriage system and tracks, offers excellent performance with outstanding drawbar power for operation on rough terrains such as mulch, rock, or dirt. It is also compact and versatile enough to be easily manoeuvrable in small spaces.

The other electric machine on Sunward’s stand will be the two-tonne SWE 20FED – the first electric mini-excavator from Sunward. Based on its best-seller in the European market, the SWE 20F, the cabbed/canopied SWE 20FED combines durability, reliability, performance, and easy maintenance with exceptional value for money.

Sunward representatives will be on the stand to provide information on the manufacturer’s full range of equipment, warranties, and competitive finance packages.
