Leica Geosystems Machine Control

A unique feature offered for the SY225 excavator is the enhanced technology of the Leica Geosystems Machine Control. Machine Control is revolutionizing construction jobsites around the world with its blend of power, precision, safety features, and intuitive controls. As Leica is an open platform, owners and operators can easily set up their system to communicate with the Leica technology, regardless of base technology. Fleet managers who already utilize a Trimble or Topcon base do not have to reinvest in a new base. Also, Leica's file structure is much more user-friendly. It can utilize your existing models from other brands of grade control equipment or directly from the surveyors' or engineers' existing models. The monitor and receiver are interchangeable between machines, so if you're moving from one to another, you can take the monitor with you. It'll keep the information stored and save money from owning multiple machine cab kits.

However, it’s not just the Machine Control technology that makes this machine top of the line amongst competitors. It also features a suite of advanced safety functions designed to keep operators safe on the job. Its automatic shut-off feature turns off the engine if it senses dangers such as an unexpected drop in oil pressure or temperature levels. Its load-sensing system prevents overloads by automatically adjusting engine speed depending on workload demands. And of course, its clear-view cab and backup camera offer excellent visibility in all directions so operators can always be aware of their surroundings.

The new SY225 SANY Excavator is a machine that will work for you – in whatever application you might need. With its extra-long undercarriage and powerful engine and hydraulics, this medium excavator won't let you down. And, with the new Leica Geosystem installed, you’ll get improved accuracy, increased speed, and enhanced safety –all while reducing downtime and saving money on fuel costs in the long run! If you’re looking for a reliable solution for your construction needs, look no further than this piece of equipment!
