Got our Sany set up somewhere near now. Very impressed with the spec as standard. 2 proportional Aux functions as standard. Both have I think 8 presets so you can vary the flow in 5% increments, means we can have the rotator on the grab at 5% and the flail set to 100% and you just change the setting on the key pad when you change the implement. Not used it in anger to know general running etc, but all looks sound enough.

Local dealer had one in stock as well which is always a nice surprise in the current climate. 

 

Made this video this morning, making the most of the sunny spell! Didn't come out quite as smooth as I had in my mind when I thought of it, but quite pleased with the effect non the less.

Looks good - I’ll follow your progress with the Sany with interest!

I’d suggest getting cab guards if sending it out handling timber…

Yes, guards are next on the to-do list!

Can you share some more pics of your grab to hitch bracketry please? Looks like it's mounted 90degrees to how grabs are usually mounted to the tophat. Looks like a harford sl30 hitch, which I have on a 2.4ton takeuchi, so would be interested in how you get on with your solution
