Grand Rapids, Minn. — Yanmar Compact Equipment offers the SV40 Excavator. This ultra-tight tail swing excavator boasts power, flexibility and stability in a compact package.
Yanmar Compact Equipment tailored the ultra-tight tail swing SV40 Excavator for the North American market and developed it to push the limits and get more power and performance out of an under-5-ton machine. Weighing 4 tons, the SV40 features a 39-hp electronically controlled Yanmar Tier 4 Final diesel engine. It comes standard with Yanmar’s patented quick coupler, SMARTASSIST remote communication system and the Yanmar 4 year / 4,000-hour warranty. Options for the SV40 include a second PTO function, 4 or 6-way blade and an additional counterweight.
Jeff Pate, director of sales for Yanmar Compact Equipment, stated, “Redefining the definition of compact power, our SV40 is pushing the limits on an excavator of its size. With best-in-class power, digging force and lifting capacity, this machine will be a game changer within the compact excavator segment.”
The addition of the SV40 broadens the current excavator product lineup, with two other ultra-tight tail swing machines and another six excavators with true zero tail swing.
Starting with the launch of the world’s first compact excavator in 1968, Yanmar has since expanded its excavator offerings to nine total models, six of which have true zero tail swing. Each excavator is a purpose-built to overcome the most challenging conditions, work with an efficient use of power, conserve fuel and provide exceptional flexibility with the same stability and performance you would expect from more conventional excavators.
