Yanmar is happy to announce the launch of the new Universal ViO80, the only zero tail swing midi-excavator in its weight category. After the huge success of the ViO75, Yanmar conceived this new machine by taking into account the evolution of the various environmental standards and the customers’ remarks and by leaning on its technical knowledge and numerous technological innovations.
The midi-excavator Universal ViO80 is the only totally round excavator of more than eight tons, which allows it to work in places other excavators of its weight category cannot reach. The cabin was totally rethought to improve the ergonomics and the driver’s comfort. Its inside space increased by 40 % in comparison with the previous model. The seat is set on pneumatic suspension with double sliding sheet and adjustable headrest, the translation levers are provided with wide pedals and hand rests are adjustable in height and in depth. The air-conditioning (standard) and the soundproofing have also been improved.
New midi-excavator Universal ViO80 is equipped with a 4 cylinders Yanmar engine which meets environmental standards EPA Interim Tier 4. This 3318 cc engine of 40,7 kW has an EGR system (Exhaust Gases Recycling), an electronic control of the swing speed, an Auto- Idling system as well as an Eco-mode. The Auto Idling system put automatically the engine at the minimum rpm when the control levers are not used beyond four seconds. The engine rpm automatically returns to pre-selected scheme as soon as the levers are used again. The Eco-mode reduces the swing speed while keeping the same torque in order to work in optimal conditions. This allows a decrease of fuel consumption by 40%.
Midi-excavator Universal ViO80 has an operating weight between 8065 kg and 8285 kg (with steel crawlers and Yanmar hydraulic quick hitch). This weight, linked to an optimisation of masses and volumes repartition, improves the lifting capacities of the machine. The combination of this new engine with the hydraulic system Yanmar VIPPS let a significant decrease of consumption but also a clear improvement of performances. In normal mode, midi-excavator Universal ViO80 is consuming 18% less per digging m3 while increasing the digging capacity of 14% per hour.
The dipper tearout and bucket tearout have also been improved (respectively + 16 % and + 7 %) to reach 4160 kgf and 6480 kgf. The second automatic speed enables to regulate the speed according to the ground bearing pressure. The 3rd and the 4th auxiliary hydraulic circuit have a proportional power take off (PTO).
Finally, maintenance is also improved with a wider opening of the upper and side covers, a better access to the cooling system and easily removable trapdoors for a quick and efficient daily control of the main components.
