Unlike many of our competitors our 10 ton excavator, the SV100-2 isn't built on the frame of an 8 ton digger. The SV100-2 is it's own machine not given additional size by the use of counterweights.
Yanmar's 8 ton ViO80-1 is a combination of technology and innovation, it offers the performance of a large excavator whilst still enjoying the benefits of a compact excavator. Designed to work effectively on a wide variety of sites, it utilises compactness, power, versatility, comfort and reliability.
The SV100-2 is the only 10-ton midi-excavator with short tail swing that can operate in jobsites where other 10-ton machines have difficulties. Extremely compact, with a short tail swing, it enables you to work in narrow areas with high performances thank to its VICTAS and VIPPS systems
As you will know both these machines now come with long arm as standard and are Stage 5 engine ready. However bar having the same transport length (showing how compact the SV100 is to move) there are many differences in dimensions and specifications.
The below table highlights some of these differences and again goes to prove how the 10 tonner has it's own specific frame.
