The Sunward SWE90UF compact excavator has been developed especially for contractors, from demolition to the rental market, all will appreciate this compact machine that delivers a heavy-duty performance. It features a very short-tail swing, making it the shortest 9-ton short-tail excavator available in the market.

Thanks to its design, the SWE90UF can offer great power at a reduced footprint, giving it the ability to fit into smaller spaces than other similar products. It combines the power of the Yanmar engine, delivering 62 HP, with incredible precision thanks to the dual proportional joysticks, the perfectly fitted hydraulic flow coupled with the LUDFF system (Load Independent Flow Control). To balance fuel consumption and the desired productivity, the SWE90UF offers 3 working modes.

Of course, because we know that safety and comfort should go hand-in-hand, the SWE90UF keeps you safe and provides comfort in all working conditions. In the Sunward tradition of always offering the best value for money, the SWE90UF is no exception since it provides many features and up to 3 years of warranty as standard, at the right price.

At the heart of the SWE90UF, we chose the Yanmar engine. This engine features a common rail direct injection, assuring more precise fuel delivery and control, increased fuel economy, superior exhaust treatment, reduced emissions, and improved performance. In terms of power, Yanmar offers an output of 62 HP, allowing powerful performance to meet a wide range of applications.

Premium Components

All key components in Sunward excavators are carefully selected, from the Yanmar engine to hydraulics. Because hydraulics are often regarded as the heart of the machine, Sunward sources exclusively from the highest references in the market. So, it was natural for Sunward to select a premium brand to be our main pump supplier, as well as valves and joysticks. Our KYB hydraulic pumps deliver greater precision and reliability – which naturally reflects on the reliability of this machine. 


The SWE90UF has exceptional digging forces – 8,543 lbf (arm) and almost 14,275 lbf (bucket) better than other 9-ton options on the market. When it comes to its long-reach digging capacity, the SWE90UF is again very well positioned with its almost 24 feet long reach.


The SWE90UF has exceptional lifting capacities of up to 5.2 tons (max.) and stretched the reach of up to 24 feet (max.) easily rivaling the long-established 9-ton excavators on the market.

Operating radius

The SWE90UF’s unique design is an extremely compact 9-ton excavator that has a zero tail swing. These precious centimeters of its swing radius make all the difference between being transported on a regular truck rather than a specialized one. On the job, the SWE90UF provides the stability required for long-reach digging and heavy-lifting duty.

Well-equipped from the start

The Sunward SWE90UF 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.
– Battery cut-off switch for safer operations and prolonged battery lifetime and power – which is especially appreciated in the cold weather of Scandinavian countries.
– Double Acting Hydraulic Circuit
– Factory-fitted Hydraulic Quick Hitch Lines
– Factory-fitted Hammer & Rotation Line
– Factory-fitted Case Drain Line
– Factory-fitted Dual Proportional Joysticks
– Factory-fitted Tiltrotator Configured Joystick Controls (tiltrotator of your choice)
– 4 LED work lights as standard: 2 on the front of the cab, and 2 on both sides of the boom

Easy to maintain

To reduce maintenance time and cost for the SWE90UF, 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.

SAfe Cab

The high‑strength SWE90UF cab is standard and among the first features to ensure a safe and comfortable job in all application environments. Despite its compact size from the outside, the SWE90UF offers easy access to the roomy cab. Thanks to the large windows and the well‑organized cab, everything is designed to keep operators comfortable and productive as well as safe.


Sunward is your smartest investment in reliability, performance, and high ROI. Indeed, the SWE90UF’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.
