Yanmar rolls VT

Yanmar Compact Equipment EMEA has announced the launch of three new mini excavators: The SV15VT, SV17 VT and SV19 VT. 

The Yanmar SV15 VT is powered by a Stage V-compliant mechanically-controlled 3-cylinder indirect injection engine from Yanmar’s TNV series. Its double gear pump hydraulic system delivers a flow of 28,6 l/min at a maximum 205 bar pressure, achieving a digging force of 7.4kN (short arm) and 12.9kN (bucket), while also coming with a standard auxiliary hydraulic line to power breakers or augers. A unique track frame layout, featuring three bottom rollers and a variable undercarriage (990-1,170mm), ensures ultimate versatility and a comfortable ride for the operator. 

Compact dimensions and a travel weight of just 1,465kg/1,555kg (canopy/cabin) mean the SV15 VT can be easily towed between work sites, along with buckets and a light work tool, on a standard 2.5 tonne GVW trailer. Four tie-down points on the track frames (standard) and four on the turning frame (optional) make transport preparation simple. 

As with every Yanmar model, safety has been considered a priority. Alongside achieving ROPS, TOPS and FOPS certification for both the canopy and cabin variants, operators benefit from 360° visibility, powerful LED work lights and an orange seatbelt as standard. Optional seatbelt sensor, flashing green beacon, travel alarms and a polycarbonate protective shield (for the canopy model) set the standards in operator protection. 

The Yanmar SV17 VT also features a Stage V-compliant mechanically-controlled 3-cylinder indirect injection engine. Adopting Yanmar’s acclaimed ViPPS hydraulic system, which cumulates the flow of separate pumps in order to obtain the optimal combination in terms of speed, power and balance, the SV17VT guarantees smooth and simultaneous operation of working movements. A digging force of 9.9/16kN (short arm/bucket), traction force of 12.8kN/8kN (first/second speed) and two travel speeds (2.4 or 4.8km/h) maximise operator efficiencies. 

The Yanmar SV19 VT features a state-of-the-art, Stage V-compliant, mechanically-controlled 3-cylinder indirect injection engine from Yanmar’s globally-acclaimed TNV series, with hydraulics driven by Yanmar’s proven ViPPS system (39 l/min at a maximum 220 bars pressure). Operators benefit from a digging force of 11.4/16.7kN (short arm/bucket) and traction force of 12.9kN, with two travelling speeds – either 2.4 or 4.4km/h (with a selector on the blade operation lever and standard auto kickdown travel motors providing upgraded fingertip efficiency). 

With long/short arm and blade configurations, a shaped steel extendable undercarriage (980- 1,320mm), a wide boom swing amplitude (further extending working range) and the option of an additional 50kg counterweight, the SV19VT ensures optimum stability and outstanding flexibility to suit every application. 

All three excavators are also fitted with Yanmar’s next-generation fleet management system, SmartAssist Remote, as standard. With equipment location and status reported in real time, the system enables remote tracking via a PC or smartphone.
