Yanmar Construction Equipment Europe (CEE) grandly declares that the new model “combines sector-leading technology and future-proof innovation to deliver a business class operator experience”.
The five-tonne SV60 has a short rear overhang and minimal front turning radius to give a 3,565mm working envelope.
The X-shaped geometry of the undercarriage design enhances stability and lifting capacities, Yanmar says. It can carry one-tonne loads up to 5.1 metres at 1.25 metres high.
Power comes from Yanmar’s 4TNV84T-ZMBVA engine, delivering output of 33.4kW at 2,200 rpm.
Fuel-saving features include Auto-Deceleration (enabling the engine to idle if operating levers are not touched) and Eco Mode (which reduces motor speed to 300 rpm).
“As our next-generation flagship excavator, we’re confident that the SV60 will prove popular with construction professionals across the UK and Ireland,” says Andreas Hactergal, sales and marketing director at Yanmar CEE.
“Particular attention has been paid to the operator station design, to maximise space, comfort, efficiency and productivity. Alongside featuring the widest cabin of its class, electronic instrumentation, improved ergonomics, air suspension seat and a 7” LCD rear view camera as standard ensure a pleasant and fully-functional working environment.
“As with each model in the Yanmar CEE portfolio, the SV60 uses premium components to ensure maximum quality and reliability. From materials use to hose routing, intricate design aims to enhance service life and reduce downtime.”
