The ViO80 features Yanmar’s signature zero tail-swing and the SV100 includes an ultra-tight tail-swing. The ViO80’s zero tail-swing design, a feature pioneered by Yanmar, allows the excavator to rotate next to a structure with far less risk of hitting it. The larger SV100’s ultra-tight tail swing has 6.7 inches of overhang. Both designs allow efficient work in tight jobsites, as found in residential construction or road and utility work that may be difficult for larger equipment.
“Contractors sometimes think they have to sacrifice comfort and performance to find a machine that will do work in tight quarters,” said Jeff Pate, Director of Sales for Yanmar Compact Equipment North America. “It’s always fun to be the guy that tells them about our eight- and 10-ton mini excavators. They can take more machine to the job than they thought possible with our zero and ultra-tight designs. And we pack in so many convenience features — like our patented hydraulic quick coupler — it adds up to a second-to-none experience for the customer.”
As an added convenience, Yanmar’s hydraulic quick coupler comes standard on the ViO80 and SV100. The feature allows fast and easy changing of attachments. Aside from fitting and removing the safety lock pin, the entire task can be completed with the flip of a switch while the operator is seated in the comfort of the cab.
Both machines have spacious cabs designed to provide maximum elbow and leg room. The mini excavators feature standard heating and air conditioning systems and sturdy, sound-blocking, anti-vibration construction for a smooth, quiet ride and a comfortable operator experience all year round.

The SV100 includes a lever-controlled backfill blade, adding even more application versatility, along with an LCD monitor displaying key operating information and maintenance interval notifications.
Additionally, the machine’s owner can view the operational status of the equipment in real time and view daily work reports that track use of the excavator, useful data that can improve jobsite productivity over time. Finally, SmartAssist Remote can track maintenance intervals and inspection items as well as notify the owner via email about upcoming maintenance requirements.
