The TL65RS, TL75VS, TL80VS and TL100VS are construction-grade machines featuring the company’s performance, efficiency, technology and reliability standards. Ranging from 67 to 103.5 horsepower, the new loaders are designed to cover a wide range of customer needs. They round out Yanmar’s compact equipment line-up which already features mini excavators, compact wheel loaders and tracked carriers. The new line is suited for applications including construction work and rental.
The TL100VS will start production in the Spring of 2023, and the other three machines will begin production in late 2023.
“These new compact track loaders create a full line of compact equipment and we are excited to bring more value to the market with the reliable products we’re known for,” said Buck Storlie, product manager, Yanmar Compact Equipment. “Customers love our mini excavators for their quality construction and trusted performance in any conditions and now those benefits will be available in our compact track loaders.”
All of the new compact track loaders feature Tier 4 Final Yanmar diesel engines to offer an additional performance boost. The operator experience is a key focus in the machines with premium 360-degree visibility and a standard suspended seat for enhanced comfort. A removable roof hatch escape offers an optimised safety feature for operators.
The models also include several optional efficiency-enhancing features to improve the operator experience and overall productivity. These include a work tool positioner, return-to-position technology, self-levelling, ride control and auto 2-speed capabilities. These intuitive features help improve productivity on the jobsite and level out the learning curve for new operators to expedite the training process.
The loaders incorporate Yanmar’s optional SmartAssist telematics from the company’s mini excavator line. Features range from error detection and notification to real-time operational status updates and daily work reports. SmartAssist also includes integrated theft protection, allowing the machine’s owner to set a range from a specific location and trigger an alert if that range is exceeded. A state-of-the-art, touchscreen 7-inch colour display also comes standard with each of the new compact track loaders for improved convenience on the jobsite.
“As specialists in the compact equipment market, we designed these compact track loaders to be the whole package,” Storlie said. “Our engines are already preferred on a wide array of compact equipment, and we’re committed to upholding our reputation for excellence and reliability as Yanmar expands into the compact track loader realm.”
