Recently our innovative SV100-2 piece boom excavator has gained a lot of attention, from both visitors and on social media. Just like the standard SV100-2, it has been designed from the ground up as a dedicated 10 tonne class machine - not just an 8 tonner on steroids!
The machine itself weighs just over 10 tonnes and is Yanmar's first model with an articulated boom. The boom configuration originates from heavy wheeled excavators and drastically improves the performance of the machine, particularly in lifting, moving and placing loads it tight areas.
As well as these increases the SV100-2PB gives operators greater dig depths and dig reaches all the while keeping the machine stable and moving smoothly. This is greatly helped by being fitted with asymmetric crawlers which enlarges the track gauge of the machine and its lateral stability. These exclusive VICTAS ® crawlers with a width of 485 mm and a length of 2,370 mm on the ground (the longest in this category) also ensures limited ground pressure.
Yanmar Product Development has focused on a unique solution: the SV100 2-piece boom is fitted with a single top mounted boom articulation cylinder. This configuration offers a total protection of the cylinder rod which reduces the risks of damages. Daily maintenance is also simplified with a reduction of the number of greasing points by 50 %. This all results in a reduction of the Total Cost of Ownership of about 50%.
Furthermore, the use of a single top mounted articulation cylinder enables to divide the dead weight by 50%, which improves the stability of the SV100 2PB. The very sleek structure of the boom also results in the best visibility available on the market.
