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 18UF.
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 18UF, Because the hydraulics are often regarded as the heart of the machine, Sunward sources exclusively from the highest references in the market.

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.
