SANY celebrates a successful debut at Hillhead 2022
Hot on the heels of our successful debut at ScotPlant, SANY UK continues its booming show season as the team returns from their first Hillhead event.
The world largest quarrying, construction and recycling show promised to be the best yet as it celebrated 40 years of the iconic show and it didn’t disappoint with more than 600 exhibitors and close to 18,500 visitors across a balmy 3 days.
SANY took the opportunity to unveil the new SY155W wheeled excavator to the UK market, which got a great reaction at the show. This 16T wheeled excavator has been in Europe for 2 years but has been upgraded with rear stabilisers and a front dozer blade to suit the UK market. It also features state of the art hydraulics with hammer, low flow and rotate lines, with proportional controls as standard.
Joining the SY155W on the SANY stand was also the recently launched SY390H, a 40-tonne tracked excavator boasting impressive performance, efficiency, comfort and economy with fuel savings of up to 42% over the outgoing SY365C model. Other machines included the SY215C, the ever popular SY80U and the SY26U and SY18C from SANY’s range of mini excavators.
Alongside the SANY team were representatives from SANY’s nationwide dealer network who took the opportunity to catch up with customers, both old and new, suppliers and partners and helped to create an incredible atmosphere on the stand.
Off the stand and to complement the static display SANY had two of their SY500H crawler excavators working in the Quarry Face and Recycling demonstration areas, which was a great opportunity for show visitors to see the machines in action.
Leigh Harris, Business Development Director for the UK and Ireland commented “What a show! Hillhead was a first for SANY and a brilliant backdrop to unveil our latest machines. We welcomed a huge number of visitors to the stand over the 3 days and the feedback we have received and the level of interest generated from the machines on display has been exceptional, with a number of excavators sold at the event. There is no doubt that the event has helped to strengthen SANYs’ growing reputation in the UK and Irish market, so we couldn’t be happier.”
