The Sany iSEE2 Dump Truck is an 8x4 electric vehicle and was first announced by Sany in 2022.  This model is in the larger scale of 1:35.


The model comes in a Sany branded box which has a plastic carry handle.  Inside the box, the model is contained within a pair of expanded polystyrene trays which are clipped together.  The model is protected by soft paper.

The review model had no defects or missing parts.

A plastic pointer tool is included with the model.


The chassis has leaf spring suspension represented on the steering axles.  An electric engine sits in the middle of the chassis.  The transmission prop shafts and rear suspension are modelled.  A plastic box and small tanks are replicated.   At the rear the light clusters have plastic lenses.

The wheels look good and they have simple tyres.  Hard plastic mud flaps are provided all around.

The cab has texturing on the roof and plastic mirrors.   At the front the Sany name and badges are represented very well.  Inside the cab the detail is very good.

Behind the cab there is a large metal cabinet which presumably holds the batteries on the real truck.

The lift ram for the dump body is three stage.  The body is metal and very strong, with an excellent structure.  It is nicely decorated.  There is an easy slide cover made of a tarpaulin-like material.


The model rolls smoothly and the linked front steering has a moderate amount of steering movement.  The steering is also linked to the steering wheel which rotates slightly as the wheels are steered.

There is working suspension on axles 2, 3 and 4.

The cab has an opening flap at the front which reveals detail underneath.  The cab tilts to a very good angle and more equipment is modelled underneath.  The cab doors also open to a good angle. 

The dump body ram is smooth and stiff, and it can hold a pose in any position.   The angle of tipping is reasonable but the real truck probably achieves a steeper angle.  The tailgate is clipped in a closed position and can be unclipped and opened.

The easy slide cover can extend over the whole dump body.  However, it cannot fully retract to a storage position which detracts from the appearance somewhat.


This model  is made well.  It has a high metal content with plastic used appropriately.

The paintwork and graphics are very good.


Although not offered through retail channels, the model is anticipated to be reasonable value.


This is an interesting model of a new generation of Sany electric trucks by Sunraise Classic Models.  It is a good mix of detail and functionality.
