Specially designed for the operation in confined space, SANY mini excavator SY16C and SY35U are widely used in urban construction that requires flexible machines to work at lanes and underground or inner building spaces. 

Urban construction


SY16C’s bucket digging force is 30.4kN and the max digging depth is 3105 mm, which enable the mini excavator powerful to dig trenches and lay underground pipes. SY16C can be equipped with attachments such as hydraulic breaker and auger, making it can easily break the ground and excavation work can be more effectively done.

Underground construction

The constructions of subway and underground tunnel require small and flexible machines that can freely rotate and walk in narrow spaces. SANY mini excavator SY35U is very suitable for such constructions. A couple of SANY mini excavators were used in tunnel construction in Australia. Samuel, the chief builder of the tunnel gave high appraisal to SY35U’s performance. “The mini excavator is very suitable for the underground construction site where is confined that only allows small-sized machines to work in there. SY35U has no tail which makes it can swing freely to any direction so that the operator can do the excavation work without reversing the machine.” “If the right track is near the wall, it is very convenient for the operator to left swing the excavator to stop it from hitting the wall,” Samuel said that SY35U's flexibility greatly increases the construction efficiency and pushes ahead the schedule.

Inner building space construction


SY16C can be removed the canopy to operate in building’s inner space. Without canopy, SY16C’s height is less than 2 meters, which is very convenient to be used in confined space’s renovation. Besides, SY16C’s retractable undercarriage can be adjusted between 980mm to 1350mm, ensuring its accessibility to the space as narrow as 1 meter. To use mini excavator in the inner space construction can greatly save labor cost and raise efficiency. No wonder it can be loved and recommended by urban builders.
