Yanmar Compact Equipment offers the ViO80- 1A and SV100-2A, the largest models in their mini excavator line

The machines provide the performance, efficiency, technology and reliability needed for tough jobs, allowing for maximum productivity in construction, landscaping and utility applications. Both models feature Yanmar Compact Equipment’s industry-leading four-year/4,000-hour bumper-to-bumper mini excavator warranty.

Both designs allow for efficient work in tight jobsites and offer exceptional performance for their size classes. “Contractors sometimes think they have to sacrifice comfort and performance to find a machine that will do work in tight quarters,” said Jeff Pate, director of sales for Yanmar Compact Equipment North America. “They can take more machine to the job than they thought possible with our zero and ultra-tight designs.”

The mini excavators both feature SmartAssist Remote, Yanmar’s telematics system, free for five years on qualifying machines. Using the integrated theft protection, the mini excavator’s owner can set a range from a specific location or a starting time, triggering SmartAssist Remote to send a notification if that range is exceeded. SmartAssist Remote can also detect errors with electronic components and send notifications to service personnel and directly to Yanmar to streamline the diagnostic process. Additionally, the machine’s owner can view the operational status of the equipment in real time and view daily work reports that track use of the excavator, useful data that can improve jobsite productivity over time. Finally, SmartAssist Remote can track maintenance intervals and inspection items as well as notify the owner via email about upcoming maintenance requirements. Both machines are powered by a fuel-efficient Yanmar Tier 4 Final engine, offering customers legendary Yanmar engine reliability and performance. Yanmar also offers one of the industry’s best warranties on its mini excavators; a four-year/4000-hour bucket-to-counterweight warranty — reinforcing its claim of industry-leading reliability.
