Yanmar ViO82: the essential urban excavator


The Yanmar ViO82 delivers unparalleled performance, efficiency and productivity. Embracing the latest technology, operators benefit from class-leading fuel economy and minimal emissions.

Unique in its class, the model utilises Yanmar’s VIPPS2i two-pump independent hydraulic system, which regulates hydraulic flow based on engine speed. Two independent pumps allow the arm and boom to move at the same time in a swift action, minimising pressure loss and improving smooth operation.

One of the most environmentally-friendly models yet, the ViO82 features state-of-the-art emissions reduction technologies, including Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) device to reduce nitrogen oxide and a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) to minimise tailpipe emissions. The model also boasts ‘eco-mode’, which limits power when duty cycles require minimal movement, alongside auto-declaration capability.

Being a true zero tail swing excavator, neither the counterweight or upper frame overhang the unit’s tracks, making it perfect for operation within tight urban spaces or single carriageways. Thanks to a robust X-shaped undercarriage design and unique weight distribution, the ViO82 delivers remarkable lifting capability, unmatched stability and torsional stiffness. The boom itself has been specifically designed to swing up to 60° on both sides, thus maximising operator efficiencies.

Powered by Yanmar’s 3.3L 4TNV98C-WBV1 water-cooled diesel engine, delivering 41.5kW (55.6 HP) gross power at 1,900 RPM, the ViO82 achieves a digging force of 63.5kN (bucket), 25° gradeability and a travel speed of 5 kph.

The ViO82 further benefits from a comfortable cabin, fully-adjustable air suspension seat as standard and LED lighting. Operator safety has also been prioritised, with a ROPS and FOPS approved design, 360° visibility, large footstep and anti-slip system.
