Yanmar America’s construction equipment division has added three new, larger wheel loaders to its product offering —the V8 (61 hp, 1.05 to 1.57 cu. yd. [.8 to 1.2 cu m] bucket), V10 (74 hp, 1.31 to 2.03 cu. yd. [1 to 1.5 cu m] bucket) and V12 (100 hp, 1.57 to 2.35 cu. yd. [1.2 to 1.8 cu m] bucket).
Jeff Pate, national sales manager of Yanmar America’s construction equipment division said, “We are excited to continue to expand our product line. The addition of these three models helps us provide a more complete offering to our dealer and their customers.”
Yanmar America now carries four wheel loader models, eight excavator models, four skid steer models, two track loader models and one tracked carrier model. Each model is purpose-built to overcome the most challenging conditions, work with enhanced power, conserve fuel and provide exceptional flexibility, according to the manufacturer.
Yanmar has been manufacturing wheel loaders since 1975, and introduced the V-series to the North American market in 1997. Yanmar’s construction facility in Germany has been manufacturing wheel loaders since 1971, and manufactures the three larger models.
Yanmar invented the first commercially viable small diesel engine in 1933, the world’s first compact excavator in 1971 and the world’s first true zero tail swing mini-excavator.
