Yanmar have revealed two new models in their 2.5-3 tonne, zero tail swing range. The ViO26-6 is a 2665 kg machine aimed specifically at the hire industry, whereas the 2745 kg ViO27-6 is designed more for the end user. Both machines have key features from the ongoing Yanmar -6 excavator upgrades.
Compared to the old ViO25 you will notice many differences to these new models. An obvious change comes in the cab, users will now find a much improved work station, complete with; digital display screen, larger floor space, new travel pedals, 2nd speed on the blade lever and new more comfortable seats.
Key specifications such as dig depth and dump height are also increased in both models. This is helped by a real improvement in the undercarriage. An increased width along with a new X-shaped design has not only improved travel performance but also made the ViO26 and 27 more stable machines.
Users so far have commented on the quick cycle times. Yanmar have improved each of the powerline components (engine, hydraulic pump, distributor) meaning no compromise between power and compactness. A flow sharing hydraulic system, made up of a variable-flow piston pump and a load signalling flow share distributor makes combination movements far simpler and smoother than on previous models.
Further features such as; full cylinder protection, improved accessibility, new door design and a hydraulic line for clamshell buckets makes these new models a great fit for all manner of jobsites.

This week we had more Yanmar excavators heading up North of the border to Scotland. This increases the 2018 numbers of machines sold into the country, making it the best start to a year we've had in Scotland.
The latest load show above consisted of; 1 tonne SV08's, the cabbed SV18 with expanding tracks and the ever popular and reliable SV26.
A&Y's Area Manager, Peter Barfield commented "it's a really positive start to the year for Yanmar in Scotland, with a good range of machines now working in hire fleets and with dealers. We have had some great enquires for Ammann compaction and also our Dieci telehandlers so expect more machines leaving us for Scotalnd soon"
Below you can see machines delivered in January set in a very snowy scene. For more information on our sales, parts and servicing please Contact Us today.
Did you see our lightweight ATR30 rammer on our stand at EHS last week?
If not this short video will show you exactly why this 29kg, maneuverable rammer needs to be part of your fleet!
A big thank you to everybody who made 2018's Executive Hire Show a successful one for A&Y Equipment.
It's always great to see new and existing customers and show off the products we believe are the perfect fit for the hire industry.
As always there was plenty of interest in the machines on our stand. The popular Cormidi tracked dumper received high praise, especially for its special undercarriage and stability.
The Yanmar micro SV08 was well liked due to its ability to fit through an 680mm wide gap but also weighing over a tonne still having good capabilities.
We took orders for new Ammann plates and trench rollers during the show and the Dieci telehandler had many people in and out of the seat during the show. From this we have several demonstrations confirmed plus machines sold.
In fact we are extending our special show prices!! So please contact us for more information on these great offers.
Below are a selection of images from the show.
The tracks are blacked, drums painted and windows cleaned - we're all set to welcome you to the Executive Hire Show 2018.
Once again this year we are located on stand B45 and will be showcasing a number of products from our Ammann, Yanmar Dieci and Cormidi ranges. In fact the full list of what we are exhibiting is as follows:
Yanmar SV08 - a 1 tonne mini (with grab attachment)

This week we have sold and delivered an Ammann ASC50 single drum roller.
This roller has an operating weight of 4.5 tonnes, with a drum width of 1400 mm. Despite it's compactness a Centrifugal force of 100 kN make it well suited to jobs such as; pipeline construction, road subbabse's, structural backfilling and housing developments.
Ammann define the ASC 50 Soil Compactor as a heavier “small” compactor, with more force delivered from a machine that still is able to fit into tight spaces.
The ASC 50 HD version features greater gradeability and additional compaction selections that include a combination of low frequency with high amplitude and compaction force.
• Automatically adjusts if a drive component slips
• Only stops when both drive wheels and the drum are without traction, resulting in maximum grade-ability on any type of ground
• Includes “twin-lock” traction control
• Offers no-axle concept for exceptional footing
Optimum Compaction Force
• Industry-leading compaction outputs
• Smooth or padfoot drum
• Low centre of gravity
Productivity in Small Spaces
• Features articulation-oscillation joint
• Works flush against objects such as curbs
• Offers exceptional visibility for operator
• Operator platform is mounted on vibration-free rubber mounts for highest comfort
• Drives energy into material and away from operator
• Has ROPS Operator platform
As the UK & Ireland distributor of Ammann's compaction machinery we sell a wide variety of compaction plates, forward moving, reversible and hydrostatic.
The reversible range of Ammann plate compactors are know as APR. All of these plates have a modern design, with a sturdy protection frame, integrated central lifting point and a choice of powerful petrol or diesel engines making this series of vibration plate very popular.
The APR 2220 plate represents the lightest unit in the reversible plate series, with an operating width of 40 cm and a forward speed of 25 meter/min.
This plate is particularly suitable for compaction work in narrow trenches and in confined areas. It's an extremely compact and handy unit with an operating weight of just below 100 kg (Honda petrol engine, 121kg Hatz engine.)
Both versions reach a high maximum vibration frequency of 98 Hz and maximum centrifugal force of 22 kN. The light weight and narrow working widths make the machines perform well on confined jobsites
This machine, like the larger APR 2620 and 3020 can have optional transport wheels attached. As well as wheels there is also the option of rubber mats, to avoid damage to paving stones.
Other benefits at a glance are:
If you like the look of this plate or any others in the range then be sure to take a look at our dedicated Ammann Plates Page Here
We will also have a model on show at next weeks Executive Hire Show if you are visiting, Stand B45.
In Part 2 of our Executive Hire Show preview we will be looking at the Ammann compaction equipment as well as Cormidi tracked carriers that will be found on our stand.
The show is on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th February at Coventry's Ricoh Arena. Once again A&Y will be exhibiting on stand B45, showing a range of equipment suited to the Hire industry.
The Ammann ARX 12 Tandem Roller is a light, articulated ride-on roller that works flush against curbs and other obstructions and eliminates the need for special edge compaction efforts. Double-drive and double-vibration are standard and help deliver optimum compaction results.
An electric drive-lever makes for smooth starting and stopping and is among the reasons the roller is popular with operators. Other operator benefits include a rubber-mounted platform that limits vibration and an intuitive instrument panel to help make even an inexperienced operator successful.
The ARX 12 is built with high quality, long-lasting components that reduce the cost of ownership over the lifetime of the machine. It is reliable, economical, safe and fuel efficient.
The 1575 features an articulation joint with oscillation, providing perfect ground contact and optimal compaction results. The oscillation feature also reduces the chances of tipping.
The Trench roller and its padfoot drum provide results, even where other compactors have failed. Its ability to work in cohesive soils can prevent the need for soil removal and replacement, providing a significant financial impact.
Two steering cylinders help make the 1575 responsive and precise. The remote controlled operation relies on line of sight and improves on site safety.
Compaction Plates & Rammers
We will have a selection of compaction plates and two rammers situated on our stand. The plates will be from our forward moving and reversible ranges, both of which prove very popular to hire companies throughout the UK and Ireland.
Our smallest forward travel APF 1033 plate will be accompanied by models from the brand new APF line. These new models have drastically reduced hand arm vibration levels, as well as giving key elements better protection and a maintenance free exciter system.
The ATR30, a 29 kg lightweight rammer will also be found in this section of our stand. This model has found a real niche working on fibre optic cabling jobs.
Cormidi Tracked Dumper
We will have a verastile, Cormidi tracked carrier making up our stand.
These models come with the Hi-tip feature, perfect for dumping over the side of skips or walls, and have articulating 'rocking rollers', meaning constant ground contact.
Other features include:
Once again this year we will be bringing a number of key machines suited to the hire industry to the Executive Hire Show.
With just over two weeks until the doors to the show open (7th & 8th of Feb) all plans are finalised and we are excited to bring you a mix of popular current machines and some brand new models, never seen before in the UK.
In Part 1 of our show preview we will highlight some advantages of the Yanmar excavators and Dieci telehandler we will be showing. These will be completed with attachments that again are commonly found on hire machines to make them more versatile.
We look forward to seeing you there on Stand B45
Dieci Apollo 25.6R
Apollo 25.6R is the fixed boom telehandler for industry and construction, with excellent features, high versatility and best handling: it is designed to meet the needs of small works in fact it perfectly fits in tight and difficult spaces. This particular model has the main selling points that its less than 2 metres wide and in cab height. This makes it very mobile and perfectly suited to work on job sites where space is of a premium.
Despite the dimensions of the machine the cab remains spacious, in fact the most roomy cab of any telehandler in this category.
The Yanmar SV08 is a powerful micro excavator, weighing just over 1 tonne, that is ideal for use in landscaping, indoor renovation, housing foundations and pipe laying.
A key factor that makes this machine so well suited to these fields is mobility; expandable track width (680mm - 840 mm) allows the SV08 to travel through tight spaces, such as doors but also aid stability when digging. It's ultra small rear turning radius (just 305mm overhang) provides higher efficiency in narrow passages and spots.
Performance of this excavator isn't lessened due to size. The powerful, 10.2 hp, interim Tier 4 engine is environmentally friendly with clean exhaust and very low noise. As well as this the boom is fitted with a dual action auxiliary circuit (PTO), enabling users to add various accessories. All of which is protected by strong external covers and shields, in fact the flexible hoses have been carefully centrally routed to eliminate twisting problems.
A zero tail swing excavator with an extendable undercarriage (950 mm - 1280 mm.) This 1.7 tonne, canopy machine is popular in both urban and country environments.
Yanmar's progressive 3 pump VIPPs hydraulic circuit allows for increased working speed as well as smoother operation.
Yanmar's reliability is found in this machine through the clean and quiet TNV engine, well routed central hoses, ROPS frame, large rear bonnet and well protected cylinders.
The operator is conformable in a spacious work area, with a second speed pedal making combination usage easier.
In Part 2 on Friday we will concentrate on the Ammann Compaction products and Cormidi tracked dumpers that will complete our stand.
The SV18, our 2 tonne, cabbed, Yanmar mini excavator has had a change of look to make it more modern.
A re-design of the rear and boom plus change of decals has brought the SV18 in line with the recent changes to some of the larger excavators, such as the ViO50-6.
This model, part of the semi zero tail swing or SV range is a machine with expandable tracks from 980 mm to 1320 mm, making it more stable and versatile than most machines in this weight class. Easily transportable on a trailer or a utility vehicle thank to its reduced dimensions, with excellent traction forces for an excavator of this weight class, the SV18 is a highly efficient machine.
Also equipped with hydraulic Load-Sensing flow sharing, variable flow piston pump, with a dual or single-action auxiliary circuit fitted to arm end, the SV18 is a versatile mini-excavator able to support many tasks in very different places from very narrow areas to big sized work sites.
The SV18 furthermore results from a successful combination of the engine and the hydraulic system which enables to reduce fuel consumption, increase productivity and reduce exhaust fumes.
A very popular machine, particularly north of the border in Scotland we have them in stock now with options for finance readily available.
