World’s First Fully Electrical Empty Container Handler

SANY model SCDE907K is the world’s first full-size fully-electric Empty Container Handler, utilising a single drive motor to power a wet disc brake axle, thereby achieving 15% lower energy consumption per container compared to a diesel equivalent.

Moreover, it reduces noise levels from 82dBA to 66dBA, and the 332kWh battery enables it to operate within heavy lifting capacities continuously for 8-10 hours. In case a full recharge is needed, it only takes approximately 1 hour. Maintenance costs are merely 25% of those for a diesel machine, and it halves the duration of each service, allowing for double the amount of service intervals.

Quality Changes The World

SANY allocates 5% to 7% of annual sales revenue to research and development, demonstrating their commitment to their mission statement, “Quality Changes The World.”

Additionally, this ensures that SANY products stay aligned with state-of-the-art technology. By the end of 2019, SANY had submitted 9,151 patent applications, of which 7,298 were approved, securing the top position in the Chinese industry for both categories.
