    Yes, welcome Pomanski!!:drinkup

    I don't know if it's allowed since you're a dealer, but if so, could you post a link to pics/info on the machines so we could see them?

    Might be able to decide what questions we'de have better then.:beatsme

    Well, it appears your help is pretty easy on the eyes. :D

    Here's a couple questions pomanski: What makes your equipment better than the big names out there? How is your after-purchase support? How many dealers and repair places are in your network? These are some of the bigger questions you should expect to be asked although there are plenty more.

    I personally have never heard of that brand. Are yall trying to break into the equipment market?

    I'd certainly consider taking the risk of new-market machines. Along with the questions pointed out previously, I'd also like to know what sets Sany apart from the other Chinese-manufactured equipment available to me (JonYang, Yuchai, etc.). Who is the engine manufacturer, as well? I think many people, myself incuded, would be hesistant to pull the trigger on a new machine without a reputable engine in it. Just a thought, and good luck in this venture!

    I'm sure they've done their R&D in the marketplace, and most likely are powered by a common mill like Mitsubishi, etc.

    Can't be any more different than taking a risk on a Holla excavator...:beatsme Pumps, components, etc. are usually commonplace as well.

    Oh, I am sure you are right, heaven knows that the Cummins 5.9 sure gets around! But I have seen a few units with engine/component makers that I cannot even pronounce. ;) As stated prior by someone else, after-sale support I think would be A1 important (and judging by your 'assistants' you've nailed the pre-sale support, hehe).

    If I were to buy one of these Sany's...do I get one of those "support people" for a spotter? If so, where do I sign?:beatsme

    What is special about SANY

    Few things I think make the equipment sort of stand out relative to other Heavy Machine guys out of Asia.

    1. They use standardized internationally recognized compopnets in the assembly of the machine

    a) Tier3 American Cummins Egine
    b) Kawasaki Hydraulics
    c) Siemens Controls
    many more item but here are just a few

    2. SANY is almost anal rententive about the quality of the machines, we need to get them infront of people. Anybody so far that has seen or been behind the controls have been impressed or very satisfied

    3. pricing reflects the low assebly costs out of China

    4. In foreign markets they have a very goos reputation where the machines are put to much harder use than here.

    5. We are looking at outside service as well we have an internal SANY trained mechanic
