Yanmar CE booth the place to be at Matexpo 

Attendees can catch an exciting first glimpse at a prototype of Yanmar CE EMEA’s smallest ever wheel loader, the V7 – with its clever articulation / oscillation joint. 

This year’s long-anticipated trade fair, Matexpo 2023, is commencing in the historic hamlet of Kortrijk in the Netherlands, where Yanmar Yanmar Compact Equipment EMEA (Yanmar) will be revealing a star-studded lineup of its innovative and class-leading machines. On stand B26, the worksite machinery specialist is showcasing an impressive range of its conventional tail and zero tail excavators, and wheeled units – including a prototype of the all-new and future ready V7 compact wheel loader. 

Zero Tail 

Yanmar’s zero tail swing excavators will be kicking off the festivities at the show, including the ViO27-6 (2,770 kg OW). Exceptional performance and stability are what mark the unit as special, due to features such as its highly advanced engine – producing 15.8 kW of power at 2,500 rpm, excellent weight distribution and true zero tail status.  

The ultra-compact ViO38-6 (3,695 kg OW) will also make an appearance, with a swivel radius of just 2,875 mm and a tight turning radius. Completing the zero tail trio is the efficient and powerful ViO57-6B (5,505 kg OW), with an advanced 28.3kW TNV 4TNV86CT-PBV engine – making this a unit that meets EU Stage V emission requirements. 

Conventional tail 

Yanmar’s presence wouldn’t be complete without its respected conventional tail swing excavators, including the urban and landscaping-ready SV26 (2,740kg OW). This unit combines the largest cabin in its class with a compact 1,550mm width – providing first-class comfort in a surprisingly compact package.  

Making a big statement is the ultra mini SV08-1C (1,035 kg OW), which can be smoothly manoeuvred in confined spaces thanks to its 840 mm – 680 mm undercarriage (extended vs retracted). The machine is particularly suited for indoor renovation and demolition projects as it can easily access narrow areas, and drive through any doorway. With the undercarriage completely extended, the machine overhang is only 305 mm. 

The SV19VT (1,880 – 1,970 kg OW) also brings the perfect combination of speed, smoothness, power and performance. The machine’s innovative design features minimize the time taken to deliver daily checks and scheduled maintenance; including a wide engine compartment hood, and easily disassembled side panels and cabin floor to provide instant access to hydraulic components – to name just two. While a powerful Stage V-compliant engine and Yanmar’s ViPPS hydraulic system deliver lasting performance. 

Wheeled units 

Featured from Yanmar’s wheeled excavator range is the B110W (11,000 OW), with unrivalled stability thanks to its innovative axle design, and a precise hydraulic system that gives the unit an impressive lifting capacity – one typically associated with larger class machines.  

Lastly, attendees can catch an exciting sneak peek at the initial prototype of Yanmar’s compact V7 wheel loader, expected to be formally launched after September 2023. Featuring a new articulation/oscillation joint that keeps the machine’s total height under 2.5m, it is perfect for easy transportation and is some half a tonne lighter than the next largest machines in the Yanmar range. 

With the latest thinking across the compact equipment landscape, there is plenty to look forward to at Matexpo 2023. Still not convinced? Yanmar will also be hosting a ‘90 Seconds Skills Challenge’ on its stand, where experienced operators can flex their excavating muscles by taking part in an interactive game. In 90 seconds, contestants must solve and rearrange a four-tile puzzle using the grapple of a Yanmar SV19vt mini excavator. There are gifts up for grabs for everyone who participates – and a special prize the day’s reigning champion… 

Yanmar invites all attendees to visit stand B26 and experience its disruptive and future-ready construction equipment first hand – trust us, you won’t be disappointed.
