Yanmar SV26 Mini Excavator

Discover first-class performance in a surprisingly compact package, the Yanmar SV26 mini excavator is perfect for urban work and landscaping, even in the most challenging of environments. Excellent stability and low ground pressure ensures efficiency on all types of terrain while decreasing soil degradation. The largest cab in its class and clever design delivers real operator comfort, while an advanced hydraulic system offers fast performance with real control. A complete protection system boosts durability, and fuel consumption is remarkably low as well.


The SV26 benefits from a conventional structure with reduced tail overhang, which gives it increased lifting performance and stability in even the most challenging of work environments. In addition, a long track base adds to digging stability and lifting capacity, while the wide 300 mm tracks give excellent traction. An additional rear counterweight of 100 kg is available as an option, protecting against possible shocks and friction against walls when using heavy attachments such as a tiltrotator.


This excavator boasts the largest cab in its class, the spacious interior and generous legroom allowing for maximum freedom of movement and ensuring more comfort and less fatigue for the operator. The entrance is correspondingly large as well, providing easy cab access and exit. A lot of thought has gone into the interior architecture and operator positioning. All controls are placed to the right hand side for easy access, while a digital panel provides operator and maintenance overviews.


The Yanmar SV26 mini excavator delivers superb performance for its size. It’s ideal for urban work and for landscaping, even in heavy-duty environments. Its low ground pressure provides excellent efficiency on all types of terrain and decreases soil degradation. Heavy-duty 38 mm bucket pins help give extra power, ensuring excellent tearing and digging force as required. Overall, its excavation strength and work cycles ensures excellent productivity while still respecting the environment.


The SV26 features a ViPPS hydraulic system. This is a hydraulic circuit with power summation regulation equipped with two variable flow piston pumps, a gear pump and a multiple combination directional control valve. With this progressive three-pump system, each pump engages automatically depending on the operation being performed, providing greater ease of use for the operator. The cumulative flow of the pumps also allows for faster work with smooth and simultaneous operations, even while travelling.


The SV26 consumes less than four litres of fuel per working hour. This miserly consumption can be reduced even further by installing an optional auto-idling system which turns down the engine speed to idle when the machine has not been used for more than four seconds. As soon as the driver is ready to resume, the direct-injection diesel engine quickly accelerates back to full power, ensuring no loss of productivity.


The machine benefits from the Yanmar Full Protect feature – a unique complete protection system governing all its boom and arm cylinders. Cylinder tubes and rods are safeguarded by a spring type steel plate, which reduces drastically the total cost of ownership of the SV26. In addition, the engine bonnet is protected by counterweight from potential damage, while components and daily maintenance points are accessible easily due to the conventional design of the machine. The cabin also meets all FOPS, ROPS and TOPS requirements, providing a safe workplace for operators across every jobsite.
