Operation and Comfort are Further Enhanced The stability of the new Yanmar Universal Vio series, Zero Tail Swing machines, is equal to that of conventional excavators. Ease of operation and operator comfort and control have been further enhanced. Vio17 allows turning in smaller, tighter spaces with a higher dumping height while maintaining a safe comfortable operating space for the operator. The ROPS/FOPS canopy along with the High Back seat provides an extremely comfortable operation.
The use of superior hydraulic hose protection, rugged steel sheet metal and other features have further enhanced reliability and durability of the machines. Yanmar's exclusive bucket and arm guards along with the boom cylinder guards are made with spring steel to avoid damage to the cylinder rod. The new cast iron corner protectors and bottom side protectorsalong with the underside plate steel covering gives greater protection from impacts and decreases damage to sheet metal. The easy opening hood provides wide access for easy engine maintenance.
