MADE FOR EUROPE
On top of its EU certification, the Sunward SWE 17F, like all Sunward machines on the European market, is designed to meet European customer needs. In the case of the SWE 17F, we can even tell that it has been developed especially to me the need of the European market.
POWERFUL & RELIABLE ENGINE
We chose the powerful Yanmar 3TNV80F-SSU engine featuring low fuel consumption, low noise and vibration levels, and high-altitude performance control, ensuring intensive work under severe environment. This 13.4 kW industrial diesel engine is both EPA Final Tier 4 and EU Stage V compliant, and its compact design means it can fulfill a variety of roles. The Yanmar engine perfectly matches with the power of hydraulic system, guarantying smooth operation. This engine is the perfect fit for our reliable and versatile Sunward SWE 17F.
All key components in Sunward excavators are carefully selected, from Yanmar engine to hydraulics. Because hydraulics are often regarded as the heart of the machine, Sunward sources exclusively from the highest references in the market. For our Sunward SWE 17F, we selected Japanese premium brand NACHI to be our main supplier for the hydraulic pump and the traveling and swing motor. NACHI pumps and components for construction machinery are efficient, reliable, and space-saving. So, it’s no coincidence that Sunward selected them to contribute to the SWE 17F’s reliability.
The SWE 17F’s extendable undercarriage – the track width can be
extended from 990 mm to 1 360 mm – provides robust stability,
ensuring safe and comfortable operation in all kinds of job applications, including restricted work sites. When retracted, it allows the SWE 17F can drive through doors. This compact design makes the SWE 17F mini-excavator ideal for transportation. The SWE 17F does more than simply align with the EU’s transportation regulations – truly compact (990 mm width) and lightweight (1 640 – 1 780 kg), it allows easy, safe and secure transport.
HIGH WORKING RANGE
Despite its very compact size, the SWE 17F has powerful lifting & digging forces and long reach capacity. The SWE 17F has exceptional digging forces of over 21 kN (bucket) and almost 12 kN (arm). And when it comes to its long-reach digging capacity, the SWE 17F boom cylinder design provides a reach of 1 110 mm long.
READY FOR A VARIETY OF APPLICATIONS
A mini-excavator’s versality starts with how well it is designed for transportation. The SWE 17F does more than simply align with the EU’s transportation regulations – truly compact (990 mm width, but can be extended to 1 360 mm) and lightweight (1 640 – 1 780 kg), it allows easy, safe and secure transport. A wide range of attachements can be easily fitted to answer a variety of applications.

What our users say
My company already acquired 4 pieces of Sunward equipment, the first one was a 2-tons mini excavator acquired in 2018. It is extremely user-friendly, easy to handle and operate. We are very happy with its capabilities. It convinced us to buy 3 other pieces of Sunward equipment. The machines are easy to handle and operate. We asked for high-performance machinery and this is exactly what we got.
I received my new Sunward SWE 90UF in summer 2021. I have experience with similar machines from other top brands, and this one is efficient and powerful. From lifting big weight to digging the ground for housing or loading a 30-ton trailer, operations are fast and smooth. The biggest asset is the power, the ability to work in tight conditions, and the low cost of ownership. What I also appreciate is that it is quiet. I am very satisfied with my purchase of a Sunward excavator.
