Yanmar’s Mini Excavator SV26 meets Requirements of Rental Companies

SAINT-DIZIER/FRANCE, April 25, 2014 – Yanmar Construction Equipment Europe presented the new 2.6-ton mini excavator SV26 in Berlin, on April 15, 2014. As the first machine that has been completely constructed and designed in France, the SV26 has been especially developed to meet the needs and requirements of rental companies. It shows numerous benefits such as: very low transport weight, 3 cylinder Yanmar diesel engine with direct injection for maximum power, advanced user convenience and safety. Also, the high security standards were optimised and the machine facilitates maintenance work. The SV26 can be used for a wide range of applications in the areas of construction, agriculture and landscaping.

The SV26 is a multifunctional machine. With its low transport weight of 2,600 kg – with rubber tracks and cab – the machine can be transported on a small trailer. Yanmar’s diesel engine reduces emission and fuel consumption to less than four litres per hour while working with high power: 17.4 kW at 2,400 rpm. Moreover, an optional system automatically reduces the engine speed when the machine has not been used for more than four seconds. The patented VIPPS hydraulic system (ViO Progressive 3-Pumps System) combines three systems that work simultaneously. In accordance with the work being performed, pumps will be activated increasing work speed and facilitating the usage of the machine. With its very short tail, the new mini excavator can easily operate on narrow jobsites.

The large cab windows and the shape of the SV26 guarantee a panoramic view. A LED light positioned at the lower part of the boom, ensures visibility of the work area – even at night. A new digital display allows to manage working time, daily maintenance operations and also to program interventions. Furthermore, it provides real time information of the status of the machine. Thus, the operator can immediately find out about any malfunction or anomaly. These features help to optimise the safety level - for both, the operator and the machine. In addition, the machine offers easy ways for fast and efficient maintenance by giving better access to engine radiator as well as easily removable panels.
