The Yanmar line up of true zero tailswing excavators (ViO range) consists of seven models ranging from 1220 kg to 8065 kg.
These machines come equipped with an innovative, powerful and progressive 3 Pump hydraulic system, known as VIPPS, fitted with; a variable-flow dual piston pump, a gear pump and a multiple combination directional control valve.
This technology is unique to the Yanmar brand, with the hydraulic circuitry design and load sensing pumps offering increased performance when utilising the boom, arm bucket and swing features. Key aspects to this improved performance include stability and lifting capacity.
As well as improved productivity and performance the VIPPS system offers users the ability to increase working speed, due to the cumulative capacity of the pumps, whilst also providing smooth and simultaneous operation of all the excavators’ features, even when travelling.
The ViO range of mini excavators have another innovative feature that gives stability without the need for expanding undercarriage. This feature is called ViO Crawler Technology for Advanced Stability (VICTAS). By utilising Yanmar’s unique off-set track configuration, VICTAS provides advanced stability, as well as a decrease in vibration due to the rubber crawlers, both of which lead to less ground damage.
