Ace Machinery Ltd, A&Y’s Yanmar construction dealer for Ireland have recently sold the first of the new C50R-5TV tracked carriers with turning skip.
This compact 6 tonne carrier, with a payload of 3.5 tonne and Yanmar’s new EU Stage 5 ready engine, has been purchased by Longford Hire Centre.
As a comprehensive provider of plant and equipment to the construction sector in Ireland; Longford Hire Centre's requirements for a tracked carrier of compact dimensions , unsurpassed maneuverability and low ground pressure were ideally met by the C50R which has been dubbed the "lightfoot" by those in Yanmar.
This benefit is in addition to the increased functionality the rotating skip gives the machine. Having a turning skip will mean users have 180° dumping capabilities, perfect for work in tight job sites and alongside trenches.
Further changes in the C50R-5TV have seen the cab size increase. As the air suspension seat and levers swivel, allowing the operator to always be facing in the direction of movement, space and comfort are key. This swivel feature leads to a safer working environment, reduced damage to the work site and higher productivity, as less turns are required. The cab has also been fitted with a new improved switch layout as well as the new Yanmar LED display, which displays crucial machine information, including the automatic DPF maintenance status.
Andrew Kennedy of Ace Machinery is hoping the deal would be the first of a number of C50 carriers coming into Ireland.
