Recently we told you how a local cricket club had used a Yanmar ViO17 whilst constructing the extension to their clubhouse.
This week another local cricket club, Moreton in Marsh CC has had a Yanmar ViO25 working as they install new practice net facilities.
The club also host junior sides from North Cotswolds Young Cricketers who recently have produced many talented players, these new practice facilities will drastically improve the club and help coaches and players alike to develop.
The 2.7 tonne ViO25 is being used by experts in the construction of artificial pitches, S&C Slatter. They first used the excavator to clear the area, before digging out the footings and inserting the kerbstone edging along with the base poles for the frames structure.
This machine has a number of advantages making it a great fit for jobs of this nature. Being true zero tail swing it can work right up against walls and obstacles with minimal movements and rotations. The patented Yanmar VICTAS technology also helps the construction of sports pitches and facilities like these. This technology not only increases the front and side lifting capacities of the machine but also gives better stability, noise and vibration-free travel and creates less ground damage. The ground damage point is particularly prevalent in this case.
It is powered by a reliable Yanmar engine and allows for the use of attachments such as hammers and augers through a separate 3rd circuit pedal, making it possible to combine various working movements and travelling.
The facilities being inserted are of the highest standard, in fact you'd find the same at the Home of Cricket itself, Lords. We are happy a Yanmar helped the creation of this great new practice area and hope many more players improve their game and have fun using them.
