While remaining light and easily transportable, the ViO38U, with an operating weight of 3,885 kg with cabin and rubber tracks, is the perfect mini-excavator for all work requiring a compact machine that is stable and powerful and provides the weight / power / work capacity ratio of a 4 ton machine.
The ViO38U has a new Yanmar 3 cylinder engine with direct injection and liquid cooling. With a 1642 cm3 displacement and a net installed power of 20.9 kW at 2,300 rpm, this engine meets the TIER IIIA environmental standards. In addition, the ViO38U retains the Yanmar VIPPS® hydraulic architecture which allows perfectly simultaneous movements while maintaining lower consumption compared to the hydraulic systems of competing machines. A fourth circuit can be added as an option to the third circuit with proportional command. Compared to the previous model, the flow of the third pomp of the hydraulic system goes from 23.7 to 27.3 l/min, increasing the amount of oil available during simultaneous movements of the boom lift and rotation when loading trucks. The combination of this VIPPS® hydraulic system and the new Yanmar 3TNV88 BQBVA results in a significant decrease in consumption, and provides a marked improvement in performance. Breakout and penetration forces were improved to reach respectively 1,820 kgf and 3,300 kgf.
The ViO38U undercarriage has a total width of 1,740 mm, which associated with the VICTAS® asymmetric track system, gives the machine the foundation needed to ensure perfect stability even in the case of work on the side with heavy equipment. It also helps reduce vibration and soil degradation.
The ViO38U mini excavator is equipped with the same cabin as the ViO50U and ViO57U, making it one of the most spacious on the market. Completely redesigned to improve ergonomics and driver comfort, the cabin provides the operator with easy access to all controls and a greater internal volume than the previous model. The seat is multi-adjustable; the travel levers are equipped with wide paddles and wrist rests can be adjusted. The cabin has many storage areas and heating vents are located to ensure not only driver heating but a perfect defogging of the side windows and the windshield.
Finally, maintenance is also facilitated. Daily maintenance is greatly enhanced thanks to the wide opening of the top and side covers and through better access to the cooling radiator. Full protection of all the piston rods and routing of the flexible hoses along the full-length avoids the risk of tearing them out leading to the immobilization of the machine.
The ViO38U features as standard equipment: blade control using hydraulic manipulators (identical to the joystick), working light built into the boom, safety locks to prevent starting (the lever needs to be raised in order to start the engine), attachment points on the blade and the undercarriage for tying down the machine on a trailer, battery switch, additional 12 V power outlet in the cabin. It can be optionally equipped with safety valves, hydraulic quick couplers, immobilizer system, anti-theft system, hydraulic hammer, radio...
