Yanmar to showcase latest range at the Executive Hire Show


Yanmar Construction Equipment Europe (CEE) will showcase its latest range of compact plant solutions at this year’s Executive Hire Show (6-7 February; Ricoh Arena, Coventry). Representatives from the company’s UK and European sales teams will be located on Stand K26, displaying the class-leading C08 Hi Tip tracked carrier and ViO12-2A zero tail-swing mini excavator.

C08 Hi Tip (810mm) –
Robust, reliable and rental-tough, the C08 is Yanmar’s all-terrain tracked carrier. With a small turning circle and width of 810mm, the C08 is compact enough to fit through a standard doorway. An 800kg payload can be lifted to 1,500mm, making the unit perfect for unloading into skips or over garden walls.

Intuitive pilot controls make for user-friendly operation, while the model’s hydrostatic transmission with variable-flow injection pumps ensures smooth power delivery. Rubber crawlers offer excellent traction on soft and delicate ground, even allowing operators to climb steps or work in the snow.

ViO12-2A (1,
245kg) – Providing performance and productivity with zero tail-swing, the ViO12-2A is Yanmar’s ultra-compact mini excavator. Weighing just 1,245kg, the innovative model is perfect for operating in tight working environments. Furthermore, its clever weight distribution and extendable undercarriage maximises stability and productivity – even on challenging terrains.

Equipped with Yanmar’s 3TNV70 diesel engine, operators benefit from 52Nm torque and 9.2kW power output. High working pressure (210 bar) and a pump flow of 2 x 11 l/min deliver 13.9kN breakout force and 5.8kN tearout force, while a digging depth of 1,950mm and dumping height of 2,370mm offer best-in-class cycle-times.

David Cockayne, UK and Ireland sales manager at Yanmar CEE, commented: “A key event in the national construction calendar, the Executive Hire Show provides an excellent platform to profile our rental-friendly compact equipment range.

“The C08 Hi Tip tracked carrier and ViO12-2A zero tail-swing mini excavator are just two Yanmar products renowned among rental professionals worldwide for their impressive performance and rental-tough design. We’re looking forward to speaking with attendees about our wider range and its suitability for the equipment hire market.”
