Previously we have touched upon some of the many features and benefits that come as standard on our 8 tonne, Yanmar ViO80-1.
These have included such features as: improved cockpit layout with air suspension seat, larger cabin, EU Stage V ready engine, long arm, VIPPS and VICTAS to name but a few.
However this is just touching the surface of what these machines can offer the owner and operator.
Today we will highlight 5 further features, with a brief explanation of how they benefit the machine.
You can see all of the information on this digger by viewing the brochure, with the link being available HERE - Yanmar ViO80 Brochure
Adjustable Proportional Control
The ViO80-1 is equipped with two auxiliary circuits, both with proportional joystick controls, adjustable using potentiometers.
The proportional control adapts the flow of oil to the needs of each attachment. The operator therefore has perfect control of accessories without the need to reach over and use the same joystick
When the control levers are not used for 4 seconds, the engine automatically drops to idle.
When they are moved again, the engine returns to it’s previous speed.
Environmental performance (noise and emissions) along with fuel consumption are therefore improved.
Battery Cut off Switch
Each machine has an easy to use battery cut off switch. The advantages of this are when the excavator is sat for a period of time then the battery remains in tact also if you are carrying out maintenance to the machine this can be done in a safer environment.
The switch is located in a lockable location so can't be tampered with when machine is immobilised.
The ViO80-1 is equipped with 5 rear and side mirrors. The operator can control the work area
as well as the area around the machine without moving from their seat.
The front part of the roof is also transparent and gives a full view when loading or during demolition work.
New Yanmar LCD Digital Control Monitor
This new interface allows you to manage working time, daily maintenance checks and to programme interventions.
Its also provides useful information on the operation of the machine. Such as; engine oil and coolant temperatures as well as fuel levels and technical data.
