Sany SY35U Mini Excavator Review I purchased a Sany SY35U for home use over a year ago. It has been a great machine and a big upgrade from my older John Deere 27C open cab mini excavator. Having AC and Heat is invaluable to year round use. I have 18", 24", and a hydraulic tilt bucket for the machine. I also have a rotary mower which has saved me a lot of hard work mowing steep areas of my yard and clearing.
