Yanmar Construction Equipment Europe has announced the roll-out of its SV60 midi-excavator across the UK.
The SV60 has been created to offer the performance of a midi-excavator with the space-saving benefits of a more compact model. Designed with a short rear overhang and minimal front turning radius, the five-tonne machine boasts a 3,565mm working envelope.
Capable of carrying one-tonne loads up to 5.10 metres (at 1.25 metres high), operators can undertake heavy-duty jobs in tight urban areas.
The model is powered by Yanmar’s 4TNV84T-ZMBVA engine, which has been designed to minimise fuel consumption and reduce operational emissions. The machine has a power output of 33.4kW at 2,200rpm and includes fuel saving features: Auto-Deceleration (enabling the engine to idle if operating levers aren’t touched) and Eco Mode (which reduces motor speed to 300rpm).
Andreas Hactergal, Sales and Marketing Director at Yanmar CEE, commented: “As our next-generation flagship excavator, we’re confident that the SV60 will prove popular with construction professionals across the UK and Ireland.
“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.”
