Yanmar Compact Equipment said new ViO80 and SV100 mini excavator models are the largest in the company’s lineup and feature improvements to hydraulic efficiency, cab comfort and ease of maintenance.

“These machines are entirely redesigned with the operator and service departments in mind,” said Buck Storlie, Yanmar Compact Equipment North America product manager. “From more comfort and enhanced ergonomics to an open hood system that is incredibly efficient to work on, we’re confident operators will be thrilled with the new ViO80-7 and SV100-7’s performance and overall experience.”

Performance and experience

The newly designed cabins offer upgraded space with a new suspension seat, automatic air-conditioning, more foot space, ergonomic foot pedals and a wider cabin for easier entry and exit. Operators can survey the worksite more easily with increased cab glass area.

The 18,122-pound ViO80-7 features 18 percent more power than its predecessor with its new 67-horsepower Yanmar Tier 4 Final diesel engine. The 21,385-pound SV100-7 includes a powerful 72-horsepower Yanmar Tier 4 Final diesel engine. Both machines provide operators with increased attachment performance with 20 percent more PTO flow rate. The ViO80-7 achieves a maximum dig depth of 14 feet, 3 inches while the SV100-7 can reach 14 feet, 11 inches. The ViO80-7 features Yanmar’s signature zero tail-swing, and the SV100-7 includes an ultra-tight tail-swing.

Efficiency

Improved engine output and hydraulics allow for more productivity and greater attachment performance. The improvements allow for a 15 percent increase in work speed, 13 percent lower fuel consumption rate and 25 percent increase in travel speed on a slope, according to the company.

A new Two-Pump Load Sensing (2PLS) hydraulic system increases pump flow rate under high loads.

Technology

Yanmar’s ViO80-7 and SV100-7 include a 7-inch color LCD display and additional options include PTO flow rate adjustment, auto-decel mode, a new passcode lockout feature and more. Each unit comes equipped with a standard rearview and right-side cameras shown split screen on the display. An optional surround-view feature reduces blind spots further by showing a 360-degree view on the operator’s display.

Both also include Yanmar’s SmartAssist Remote telematics system. The technology is free for five years on qualifying machines. Telematics can detect errors with electronic components and send notifications to service personnel and directly to Yanmar to streamline the diagnostic process. Additionally, the machine’s owner can view the operational status of the equipment in real time and view daily work reports that track the use of the excavator.

Reliability

The new machines include an engine bay designed for maximum accessibility, as the cabin hoods open quickly and put the generator, valves, radiator, oil-water separator and more. The new standard double-locking quick hitch is operable from inside the cab and allows operators to quickly change attachments without leaving the seat. The hydraulic double-locking function assures secure and reliable attachment retention without the need for manual locks or fasteners.
