Powerful. Dependable. Efficient.

YANMAR has been around for more than 100 years and nearly 50 years, in the compact construction equipment. Yanmar introduced one of the first mini excavators in 1968.

Yanmar’s eight excavators – six with true zero tail swing – are each purpose-built to overcome the most challenging conditions, work with unparalleled power, conserve fuel and provide exceptional flexibility with the same stability and performance you’d expect from more conventional excavators.” – YANMAR

Since introducing the world’s first mini-excavator in 1968, we’ve been a leader in compact equipment. Each one of our machines is put through rigorous testing to ensure that they possess that legendary YANMAR quality that turns even your hardest job into an easy one. Our excavators, six with true zero tail swing, were designed to overcome challenging conditions without sacrificing any of the larger-than-life power that you need to get the job done. But don’t let all that gritty diesel power get your worried, we don’t believe in gas-guzzling. Our machines conserve fuel, so that you can conserve cash.



With the compactness of the SV08 – ViO25 series mini excavators, these units bring a whole new class of slim and compact convenience. Offering many advantages for the operators, these units offer ergonomic and comfortable design, optimal performance, stability, optimum reliability, safety, and easy serviceability.
