Sunward Europe set for a double debut at Hillhead

Two new machines from Sunward Europe will debut at Hillhead 2024.

Leading plant and equipment manufacturer Sunward Europe have announced their line up for Hillhead 2024.

Two excavators will make their UK debuts – the SWE 50UF mini and SWE 60UFED compact –  and line up alongside models from the manufacturer’s bestselling ranges on stand Y2 at the show.

The SWE 50UF mini and SWE 60UFED excavators will showcase Sunward’s static display of six machines, while the 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.

Sunward launched the SWE 50UF mini excavator at INTERMAT in April and the response justified the company’s claims it is set to be a game changer, building as it is on the success of Sunward’s zero tail range which earned an iF Design Award.

This five-tonne model, positioned between the SWE 35UF and SWE 60UF, features a zero-tail swing that makes 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 to ensure 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 masterful design, Cummins EU Stage V B6.7 engine, and enhanced hydraulics system deliver power, smooth operation and high productivity.

Complementing Sunward’s static display are 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 and it 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 20 cm) 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 stand Y2 will be Sunward’s 1.2-tonne SWTL 4538 compact track loader, which thanks to its suspended undercarriage system and tracks, offers excellent performance with outstanding drawbar power for operation on rough terrains like mulch, rock or dirt. It is also compact and versatile enough to be easily maneuverable in small spaces.

The other electric machine on Sunward’s stand is the two-tonne SWE 20FED – the first electric mini excavator from Sunward. Based on its bestseller 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
