Sunward set to debut at Plantworx

Global plant manufacturer Sunward reinforces its presence in the UK and Ireland at Plantworx.

World-leading plant and equipment manufacturer Sunward is debuting at this year’s Plantworx, the UK’s only live demo construction equipment and technology event in 2023.

The 500m2 stand (C-MC1 and C-MC2) for the event at the East of England Arena and Events Centre in Peterborough from June 13th to 15th will host the launch of several new products from Sunward which launched itself in Europe in 2015.

Just over half of the stand will be set aside to demonstrate to visitors Sunward’s popular and iF award-winning* range of short tail excavators, including the2.5 tonne zero tail swing SWE 25UF mini and SWE 60UF compact excavators.

Plantworx will also act as the UK debut for Sunward’s SWE 20FED – a two-tonne fully electric mini excavator – which will head up the static display. This machine is particularly suitable for urban construction sites with strict requirements for emissions and noise, and thanks to its tail swing radius of just 1110mm, for sites with limited and or confined spaces.

The SWE 20FED comes in cab or canopy options and offers exceptional value for money in the new market of electric excavators. It features a lithium-ion battery and a three-phase asynchronous motor, providing an autonomy of more than six hours under full working load. The machine can be fast charged in under two hours or fully charged in seven.

Sunward’s excavator range in Europe spans from micro excavators weighing one tonne to hydraulic excavators weighing 36 tonnes. As well as the new electric SWE 20FED and the SWE 155F, Sunward’s SWE 08B, SWE 18UF, SWE 35UF and SWE 90UF excavators will also be on display.

To complete its “construction” range, Sunward plans to present its compact tracked loader, the SWTL4538, as well as a scissor lift.

Plantworx will see the debut of Sunward’s new SWA 16JE electric articulated boom lift, which is versatile, safe and sustainable for a variety of applications. The machine has all-terrain capabilities and a compact size, making it ideal for indoor and outdoor work. Additionally, it is designed for easy maintenance and has a low total cost of ownership, making it a cost-effective investment. Safety features such as an anti-tilt system and emergency lowering valve are also included.

New attachments on exhibit at Plantworx from Sunward Europe include hydraulic quick couplers, augers, sorting grapples, buckets, breakers and Steelwrist tilt rotators.

*Sunward’s zero-tail mini and compact excavator range – the SWE 25UF, SWE 35UF, SWE 60UF and SWE 90UF – won an iF Design Award from a panel of more than 100 high-profile design experts from over 20 countries. It is a world-renowned prize for aesthetically pleasing, functional, intelligent or innovative products.
