5 year / 5000 hour

With an upper width of only 980 mm, the SANY SY16C can easily drive through narrow passages and spaces, especially with the 1600 kg weight, making the transportation more easily between different sites. The short tail swing is also ideal for tight job sites and confined spaces.

Quick Details

Precise handling, quick reactions, fatigue-free operation – the controls of the SY16C are designed for ergonomic handling. Designed for everyday use, all switches are easy to reach. Joysticks transmit movements directly and precisely. The digital display is clear and easy to read and shows the most important data at a glance. Using the small wheel in the joystick, the proportional function of the auxiliary control circuit can be easily controlled with the thumb.
