We chose the powerful Kubota D1703 engine for several reasons. This engine is a vertical, water-cooled, 4-cycle diesel engine with a capacity of 24.8 HP at 2200 rpm. Featuring a built-in solenoid, low fan position, and single-side serviceability, the Kubota D1703 offers powerful performance, exceptional reliability, and long service life to meet a wide range of applications. The perfect fit for our reliable and versatile SWE35UF.

Premium Components

All key components in Sunward excavators are carefully selected, from the Kubota engine to hydraulics. Because hydraulics are often regarded as the heart of the machine, Sunward sources exclusively from the highest references in the market. For our Sunward SWE35UF, we selected HENGLI to be our main supplier for the hydraulic pump, and KYB or Nachi for the swing motor traveling and swing motor. All these pumps and components for construction machinery are efficient, reliable, and space-saving. So, it’s no coincidence that Sunward selected them to contribute to the SWE35UF’s reliability.


The SWE35UF has exceptional digging forces – 7,100 lbf (bucket) and 4,400 lbf (arm) – easily rivaling all 3.5-ton excavator competitors on the market. When it comes to its long-reach capacity, the SWE35UF’s boom cylinder design provides a ground reach of over 17 feet and a digging reach that’s over 17 feet long – making this compact excavator the benchmark of its range.


A compact excavator’s versatility starts with how well it is designed. The SWE35UF is a zero-tail excavator with truly compact dimensions (5’7″width) and lightweight (8,490 lbs), allowing it to bring power and easy work even if in very tight areas, without any compromise on safety. Moreover, the SWE35UF can adapt to any job site, thanks to the complete auxiliary settings built-in as standard – providing fully adjustable pressure and flow monitoring. This results in no less than 3 separate auxiliary lines as standard (while the market provides 1 to 2 lines as standard). Thus, a wide range of attachments can be easily fitted to answer a variety of applications.

Well-equipped from the start

The SWE35UF compact excavator has it all from the day it leaves the factory:
– Auto idle engine to save fuel and limit the engine’s consumption. – While other manufacturers usually use a flow throttle (because it’s cheaper), we at Sunward opt for a Load Sensing (hydraulic) system, which provides better energy-saving possibilities.
– Safety valves for the boom cylinder for safer operations.
– Auto-shifting traveling motor for smooth operations for the operator.
– EROP & OROP cab.
– Battery cut-off switch for safer operations and prolonged battery lifetime and power – which is especially appreciated in the cold weather.
– Double Acting Hydraulic Circuit
– Factory-fitted Hydraulic Quick Hitch Lines
– Factory-fitted Hammer & Rotation Line
– Factory-fitted Case Drain Line
– Factory-fitted One hydraulic pilot control with a double contact switch
– Factory-fitted Tiltrotator Configured Joystick Controls (tiltrotator of your choice)
– 4 LED work lights as standard: 2 on the front of the cab, 1 on the left side of the boom, and 1 on the back

Easy to maintain

To reduce maintenance time and cost for the SWE35UF, the covers at the rear and on the side provide direct access to the service points. The standard service points – for fuel, oil, and air filters – are directly accessed via the cover at the rear. So, with very easy access to the fuel tank and centralized grease fittings, these compact excavators are as easy to maintain as they are to operate.


Sunward is your smartest investment in reliability, performance, and high ROI. Indeed, the SWE35UF’s expert design includes a well-thought-out selection of components that streamline operation and maintenance. Our design choices result in a machine that provides so many standard features, premium-brand key components, and capabilities at the right price. Sunward’s own genuine spare parts are economical as well – and all of this best value for the money is crowned by up to 3 years of warranty, the standard for all Sunward products.
