How can the SANY SY265C Long Reach excavator help improve productivity on your job site?

Long Reach excavators are standard excavators with an extended arm that enables operators to reach those tough-to-get-to places. Whether high, low, far, or otherwise dangerous, job sites with a need for some extra reach can benefit dramatically from a Long Reach excavator.

The SANY Long Reach, the SY265C LC, is a medium excavator utilizing the SY265C model where the tracks, cab, and upper structure is comparable to the standard SY265C. However, on the Long Reach, the boom is over 12’ longer and the stick is over 15’ longer. The SANY SY265C LC excavator has more uses than one might think. With its long arm and hefty counterweight, it has the power and reach you need to help you get to the toughest spots!

So, what can you use it for?

THE SANY SY265C LC is the prime example of how SANY makes ‘fully loaded’ the new standard. Since the SANY Long Reach comes standard with pre-plumbed auxiliary hydraulics, operators can choose from a wide range of attachments for all sorts of jobs.

When it comes to demolition jobs, the SANY SY265C LC excavator is the machine for you. From demolishing urban structures such as bridges, buildings, and other decrepit structures, the long arm and powerful engine in the 265C LC will enable you to finish the job faster and with an increased level of control. The longer arm enables the operator to have greater distance between the machine and the demo site, which prevents debris from falling on the machine itself, thus increasing the safety of the excavator.

The SANY Long Reach can also be used in drainage ditch clearing, clearing foliage and brush, and digging at deep depths that are otherwise tough to access. When working on steep slopes, this excavator makes brush cutting and foliage clearing a piece of cake!

With selectable working modes, the operator can match the machine performance to the application, increasing efficiency and keeping operating cost at a minimum. From safety to versatility, the SANY SY265C LC has the power and reach to help you dig, hammer, mow, and drill at peak performance!
