According to Sany, the company’s new SMG200C-8 motor grader, introduced at ConExpo this year, is designed with the needs of municipalities and road contractors in mind. Specifically, that means road upkeep and rebuild applications.
According to Noah VanOosterhout, road product manager at Sany, “Many machines are more than what is needed to grade and repair roads. The SMG200C-8 is built specifically for maintaining and repairing roads.”
This purpose-specific design allows the company to offer the SMG200C-8 at a lower price than more fully-featured models. In the cab of the SMG200C-8, you’ll find a rear-view camera, a steering wheel for roading and joystick controls for grading.
A 252-horsepower Cummins engine drives the machine through an eight-speed transmission and an operator controlled locking differential and electronically locking rear differential.
The moldboard measures 14-feet wide and the motor grader weighs 45,107 pounds. The cab is air conditioned and heated and offers an air ride seat.
