Just in time for next weeks Plantworx show, we will be bringing news of an exciting new partnership for A&Y Equipment, later this week.
This deal will really improve what we can offer to you and will show a real intent from A&Y to grow into new markets.
Consistently one of our most popular machines is the 8 tonne Yanmar, the ViO80-1.
This machine offers the performance of a large excavator whilst still enjoying the benefits of a compact excavator. Designed to work effectively on a wide variety of sites, it combines compactness, power, comfort and reliability. Its versatility makes it the ideal partner to improve your productivity, regardless of the work site complexity you are facing; excavation, grading, demolition or backfilling for example.
We will be showing one of these excavators at the upcoming Plantworx event, where it will be fitted with one of our AMB300 hydraulic breakers.
If you are attending the show make sure you come and take a look at the ViO80, you can sit in the recently improved cab, which includes; air suspension seat, more thorough air conditioning, vibration reducing blocks and 53% better visibility than previous models.
There are many features and benefits of the ViO80, here is just an example of 3 that make this machine a more comfortable and ultimately productive machine.
Long Arm as Standard
The dig depth of the ViO80-1 (4790 mm) has increased by 9% now we bring in all machines with a long arm as standard. You will also find a improved digging reach of 7290 mm as well as a new unloading height of 4950 mm.
Adjustable Proportional Control
The ViO80-1 is equipped with two auxiliary circuits, both with proportional joystick controls, adjustable using potentiometers.
The proportional control adapts the flow of oil to the needs of each attachment. The operator therefore has perfect control of accessories without the need to reach over and use the same joystick
New Yanmar LCD Digital Control Monitor
This new interface allows you to manage working time, daily maintenance checks and to programme interventions.
Its also provides useful information on the operation of the machine. Such as; engine oil and coolant temperatures as well as fuel levels and technical data.
In two weeks time we will be just coming to the end of Plantworx Day 1.
The stand plans and machine lists have been finalised and we will be showing the following machines during the show.
These machines will be fitted with a range of attachments, including our hydraulic AMB breakers and will also be joined by models working on the demo area.
On top of this we will be announcing some brand new products.... more news on these coming soon!

Our finance help schemes launched last year and remain to be a popular option for people looking to invest in quality new plant machinery.
There are two available plans; HP plan incorporating a payment holiday and Operating Lease, and will be running throughout the summer of 2017.
A complete list of models covered by the new schemes, including options of payments over 3 and 5 years can be found by visiting the Finance Section of the website www.aandygroup.com/finance
With the current uncertainty over the economy and the purse strings being tightened we see these options as a great and affordable way of being able to take on new Yanmar and Ammann machinery.
We will be at the Plantworx show next month where our team will happily discuss a financial package to suit your individual needs.
If you can't attend the show but still would like further information on any of our machines and the deals you can currently running on our ranges then please get in touch:
firstname.lastname@example.org / 01789 414525
Below are some examples of the prices you can have a new machine for.
The below video from Ammann will give you an insight into the many features and benefits our ARX range of heavy tandem rollers give to users.
You can also follow THIS LINK to the ARX Heavy Tandem web page, where you will find some basic specifications, as well as the downloadable PDF brochures.
In one months time we will be packing away and bringing back the machines from another (hopefully!) successful Plantworx show. This biennial event will once again be taking place at Leicestershire's Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, between the 6-8 June. You can register for your free ticket on the Plantworx website, www.plantworx.co.uk
We will be showing a number of key products for their Ammann, Yanmar and Cormidi ranges at Plantworx 2017. Located on both the large static stand and demo area.
A variety of Yanmar excavator from 1 through to 10 tonne are being exhibited, both zero tail swing (ViO) and semi zero (SV). It will be the first time for many to see the new and improved 5 tonne, ViO50-6. Its new cab design along with increases in power and stability have made it a popular seller in 2017. The micro that debuted at the Executive Hire Show, the ViO12, will also be on the stand, since its first appearance a number of these have been sold with one user telling us they treat it like a 1.5 tonne machine but with the compactness of a 1 tonner.
A machine that always turns heads and gets a lot of interest on social media and on sites is the SV100-2 piece boom. This 10 tonne Yanmar uses the traditional boom configuration from wheeled excavators to make it an incredibly versatile digger. We will have one of these located in our demonstration area where you can see for yourself the array of time saving features on offer and just why we believe this model has found a niche in the 10 tonne range.
On the compaction side the Ammann ASC130 roller will stand out due to its size. This 13 tonne single drum roller will be joined by light tandem ARX rollers, including the ever popular ARX26 (120cm drum width) and ARX12 (80 cm drum width). A number of these roller models, including the Ammann Rammax ARR1575 trench roller have been part of a large deal with Ardent Hire Solutions recently. Showing the belief in these products from a national company.
4 models of Cormidi tracked dumper will complete A&Y’s presence at the show. These incredibly popular dumpers are custom built as tracked dumpers, with features such as rocking rollers and hydrostatic drive making them high performers over all manner of terrains.
With show special finance deals on offer A&Y look forward to welcoming customers old and new at the event.
This week we had a visit from Cormidi who met with us to discuss a number of items, including how to further improve their brand in the UK and also new products due in 2017.
The UK and Ireland represents one of Cormidi's strongest markets, with a large volume of their tracked dumpers working up and down the country.
Currently we offer three models of Cormidi traced carrier, the C50, C60 and C85 series. You can see a brief overview of them by following the link to our Cormidi page here. Which includes brochures on each model. The C85 brochure is brand new, showing the features and benefits clearly.
Earlier this year the look or these machines changed due to a re brand. This change was in line with a change in the factory where each process has become more efficient.
Later this year, will also see improvements to the existing C50 and 60 models. Changes due include; lengthening the undercarriage and strengthening the chassis.
We will also be seeing the first of the CMF range of dumpers this summer. These machines stand for Cormidi Multi Function, it is effectively one machine, with over 100 different configurations through the use of changeable attachments. Examples of regularly used attachments on these machines include: 3 side tip, pallet carrier, concrete mixer, utility grapple and sweeper.
A very popular product in the USA, we look forward to bringing you more information and opportunities to see this machine in the coming weeks.
Throughout the month of May we have special pricing available on the Yanmar ViO25-4 excavator.
This zero tail swing machine fits into the 2.5-3 tonne range. Combining compactness and performance this mini excavator enables you to work efficiently in various situations, from large open sites to tight urban areas.
Despite the width of the ViO25 being just 1450 mm there is no overhang at the rear, thus giving the operator the opportunity to; work alongside a wall, have clearer all around visibility, reduce obstruction whilst working on the road and transport the machine easier.
Just because the excavator is zero tail swing it doesn't mean the stability or lifting abilities are affected, thanks to Yanmar's patented VICTAS system. By utilising a unique off-set track configuration, which increases the footprint of the machine without increasing the overall width, VICTAS provides advanced stability. Alongside that benefit, a decrease in vibration, increase in lifting capacity and less ground damage are also achieved through this.
High productivity is very achievable in the ViO25, with a number of features to aid speed and quality of work.
The pedals for the 3rd circuit and boom swing are positioned on separate pedals to enable you to combine various working movements and travel. The second speed activation is also located on the floor, again allowing for functional control during travel. On the floor you will find the single action auxiliary circuit, controlled by a pedal. This is for the use of accessories such as a hydraulic breaker or auger.
Hydraulic circuit Load-Sensing, which utilises a variable flow piston pump enables precise and simultaneous working movements particularly for operations requiring accuracy like grading, is used on this model.
Further pluses of this machine are the standard Yanmar features such as; 3 year warranty, Yanmar's TNV engine, complete cylinder protection, ROPS FOPS TOPS cab, LED work light and easy access to maintenance parts to name but a few.
