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
