Yanmar America, a major supplier of compact utility tractors, construction equipment, marine and industrial diesel engines and energy systems, announces a new addition to its Vi0 Series of excavators. Now part of Yanmar’s fast-growing line of construction equipment, the true zero tail swing Vi035-6 comes on the heels of Yanmar’s rollout of its new line of skid steers and compact tractor loaders.
The new Vi035-6 uses 20% less fuel than previous models yet features the same digging, lifting and do-anything power for which Yanmar is recognized. The electronically controlled Tier 4 engine of the Vi035-6 combined with an evolved hydraulic system, standard ECO and Auto- Deceleration modes enhance the mighty excavator’s overall operational efficiency.
“We have made a commitment to provide our Yanmar dealers with the most advanced excavator products on the market today,” says Paul Manger, Equipment Division Sales and Marketing Manager of Yanmar. “The 24.4 hp Tier 4 diesel engine is very efficient and provides exceptional power. And with Yanmar’s innovative design, the Vi035-6 is easy to service by having virtually every major component – engine, hydraulic system, starter, generator, and battery – right at your fingertips.”
Further distinguishing the Vi035-6 is its advanced operation control and hydraulic quick-coupler system which enables operators to release and fit the safety lock pin on the bucket while all the rest is done electronically from inside the cab.
With the new state-of-the-art, digital Smart Assist control system, up to three months of operational and maintenance support information can be monitored in one centralized location.
In 1993, Yanmar launched the world's first Zero Tail Swing excavator. The "ViO" name means True Zero Tail Swing, and the Vi035-6 marks the company’s 6th generation model.
