Yanmar Compact Equipment Expands Wheeled Loader Portfolio
Yanmar Compact Equipment (CE) has expanded its wheeled loader portfolio with the launch of a brand-new pair of mini machines: the V7 and V7-HW (Heavy Weight). These are the smallest wheeled loaders in Yanmar CE’s product range.
The loaders have a total height less than 2.5 m, a width of 1,850 mm (with bucket) and an overall length of 5,238 mm, to fit inside a standard EU container. The units are a half-tonne lighter than the next largest machines in the Yanmar CE range (weighing 4,250 kg and 4,450 kg, respectively).
The all-wheel drive V7/V7-HW both have an electronically controlled drivetrain, and a top speed of 20 km per hour; with 30 km/h max speed available as an option. The new V7/V7-HW are also unique in that they do away with exterior oscillation and instead feature a joint that combines articulation with oscillation, enabling the height of the machine to be lowered. The V7 and V7-HW are manufactured at Yanmar CE’s facility at Crailsheim in Central Southern Germany, and aimed at mainland Europe, Scandinavia and North America.
