Yanmar Compact Equipment has launched its smallest-ever wheeled loader models that can be fitted with buckets, forks, sweepers and snow blowers.
The new models, the V7 and the V7-HW (heavy weight), are manufactured at Yanmar’s Crailsheim facility in Germany and will be available in mainland Europe, Scandinavia and North America.
A new articulation/oscillation joint on the new models keeps both of them under under 2.5m in height.
Weighing 4,250 kg and 4,450 kg, the V7 and the V7-HW are designed for construction, landscaping and rental applications, Yanmar says in a statement.
Both models are all-wheel drive, with electronically controlled drivetrains and a top speed of 20 km per hour.
The V7-HW has a payload on forks of 1,900 kg, while the V7 has 1,750 kg.
Both models are fitted with a low-emission Yanmar 4TNV86CT four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine, which requires no scheduled maintenance on its diesel particulate filter for 6,000 hours.
