Yanmar Skid Steers — 2014 Spec Guide

Since its inception in 1912, Yanmar’s core business has been the production of engines. Following the hugely successful introduction of the walk-behind dozer in 1967, Yanmar understood the need for even more versatile compact construction machinery and introduced one of the first mini excavators in 1968. After years of success with track technology and mini excavators, Yanmar added a lineup of skid steer loaders and compact track loaders.

Yanmar’s four skid steer loaders come with a combination of raw power and fuel-efficiency, says the company, so operators can handle whatever jobs need to get done. Ranging in size from 46 hp and a rated operating capacity of 1,650 lbs to 70.7 hp and a rated operating capacity of 2,700 lbs, these skid steers are as rugged as they are productive. With a wide range of attachment options, contractors will also enjoy the versatility to take on jobs that might normally require multiple machines.

Yanmar skid steer loaders provide stability with a cab forward design that gives balance with a heavy-duty, one-piece steel frame. All of Yanmar’s skid steers allow the operator to maintain and service their equipment with the ability to roll back the cab and access all hydraulic pumps and drive motors. The first machine in Yanmar’s lineup is the S165R, with its 46-hp Yanmar diesel engine, rated operating capacity of 1,650 lbs, 116-in. height to hinge pin and 18 gpm of auxiliary hydraulic flow. According to Yanmar, the unit is top of its class in hydraulic pump flow, dump height and compact dimensions.

With a balance of power and performance, the Yanmar S190R-1 skid steer loader boasts a 68.4-hp Yanmar diesel engine, rated operating capacity of 1,900 lbs, 121-in. height to hinge pin and 18.5 gpm of auxiliary hydraulic flow. With this unit, Yanmar notes, contractors can lift 2 tons into a truck or trailer and then get the job done quicker with top-of-the-class ground speed.

The Yanmar S220R-1 skid steer is engineered with a 70.7-hp Yanmar diesel engine, rated operating capacity of 2,200 lbs, 123-in. height to hinge pin and 23.5 gpm of auxiliary hydraulic flow. This unit stacks up among the highest height to hinge pin and highest reach in its class, says Yanmar. With a highest height to hinge pin in its class, the Yanmar S270V-1 skid steer excels at lift-and-dump projects, utilizing a 70.7-hp Yanmar diesel engine, rated operating capacity of 2,700 lbs, 130.3-in. height to hinge pin and 23.5 gpm of auxiliary hydraulic flow. The S270V-1 can load 2,700 lbs into just about anything.

Advice to Buyers
“When purchasing a skid steer loader, look at the key design elements that will allow contractors to keep their equipment up and running for years with minimal downtime,” says Zack Radermacher, product marketing coordinator with Yanmar. “Precision manufacturing, common-sense engineering and a proven fuel-efficient engine are important points to take into consideration when searching for the
right machine.”
