Yanmar Compact Equipment’s recent introduction of compact wheel loaders with comfort features, including a spacious cab and dual doors. Yanmar said the lineup, which includes the V4-7, V8, V10 and V12, is ideal for applications requiring fast travel speeds, high lift capacity, and a small turning radius.

“Our loaders fill a critical niche for landscaping, construction, snow removal and rock quarries,” said Jeff Pate, director of sales for Yanmar Compact Equipment North America. “For contractors, having reliable, high-performing machines in this size class is a crucial component to being successful.”

Operating weights for the line range from 8,422 lbs. to 15,432 lbs. The loaders feature bucket capacities ranging from 0.65 cubic yards to 2.35 cubic yards and lift capacities of 7,451 pound-force to 15,962 pound-force. Fast travel speeds range from 11.8 mph to 22 mph.

The loaders have multi-function joysticks and include features such as fixed travel speed mode, fully automatic accelerator mode and auxiliary hydraulics with proportional control.

The V4-7, V8 and V10 are equipped with electronically controlled Tier 4 Final Yanmar diesel engines. The V12 features a Deutz diesel engine that is also Tier 4 Final compliant.

Hydraulic quick couplers allow for fast and easy changing of attachments. Parallel kinematics on the V8, V10 and V12 allow operators to lift loads without constant readjustment of the load angle. The V4-7 has a z-bar for higher breakout forces and features an auto-leveler mode. Additionally, the V4-7 offers ECO Mode, which reduces the motor speed to allow for even lower fuel consumption.

The Yanmar Compact Equipment compact wheel loaders cab experience includes high visibility, a suspension seat and full climate control. All models feature two doors for easy entry from either side and maximum ventilation. The machines offer an oscillating rear axle that securely transmits traction force to uneven ground. Yanmar said this keeps the bucket level in operation and reduces operator fatigue.

The V8, V10 and V12 come standard with enclosed cabs. Cabs are rubber-mounted for a smoother ride and feature a comfortable seat with lumbar support, cushioning and an extra high backrest. The V4-7 is available in both open- and closed-cab configurations.

Yanmar Compact Equipment offers a 3-year/3,000-hour bumper-to-bumper warranty on its line of compact wheel loaders. A central lubrication system is available for the V8, V10 and V12. This option provides constant lubrication while the machine is running, virtually eliminating the risk of contamination.

Maintenance Kits that are conveniently in one place are available for all compact wheel loaders in the line.
