Yanmar Construction Equipment Europe will showcase its latest range of compact plant solutions at this year’s Executive Hire Show (6-7 February; Ricoh Arena, Coventry). Representatives from the company’s UK and European sales teams will be located on Stand K26, displaying the class-leading C08 Hi Tip tracked carrier and ViO12-2A zero tail-swing mini excavator.

C08 Hi Tip (810mm) – Robust, reliable and rental-tough, the C08 is Yanmar’s all-terrain tracked carrier. With a small turning circle and width of 810mm, the C08 is compact enough to fit through a standard doorway. An 800kg payload can be lifted to 1,500mm, making the unit perfect for unloading into skips or over garden walls.

Intuitive pilot controls make for user-friendly operation, while the model’s hydrostatic transmission with variable-flow injection pumps ensures smooth power delivery. Rubber crawlers offer excellent traction on soft and delicate ground, even allowing operators to climb steps or work in the snow.

ViO12-2A (1,245kg) – Providing performance and productivity with zero tail-swing, the ViO12-2A is Yanmar’s ultra-compact mini excavator. Weighing just 1,245kg, the innovative model is perfect for operating in tight working environments. Furthermore, its clever weight distribution and extendable undercarriage maximises stability and productivity – even on challenging terrains.

Equipped with Yanmar’s 3TNV70 diesel engine, operators benefit from 52Nm torque and 9.2kW power output. High working pressure (210 bar) and a pump flow of 2 x 11 l/min deliver 13.9kN breakout force and 5.8kN tearout force, while a digging depth of 1,950mm and dumping height of 2,370mm offer best-in-class cycle-times.

“A key event in the national construction calendar, the Executive Hire Show provides an excellent platform to profile our rental-friendly compact equipment range,” says David Cockayne, UK and Ireland sales manager at Yanmar CEE.

“The C08 Hi Tip tracked carrier and ViO12-2A zero tail-swing mini excavator are just two Yanmar products renowned among rental professionals worldwide for their impressive performance and rental-tough design. We’re looking forward to speaking with attendees about our wider range and its suitability for the equipment hire market.”
