F M Arblaster & Son has taken delivery of the very first Stage V-compliant Yanmar SV60 sold in the UK.
Retailed through Mawsley Machinery in Brixworth, Yanmar’s official dealer for South Central England, the new model will be used for a wide range of agricultural contracting applications.
The perfect combination of technology and innovation, the SV60 is renowned for its compact working envelope, exceptional performance and ‘business class’ operator experience. The latest marque, fitted with Yanmar’s 33.4kW Stage V-compliant 4TNV84T-ZMBVA engine, guarantees minimal emissions and low fuel consumption.
Additional features, such as Auto-Deceleration (enabling the engine to idle if operating levers aren’t touched) and Eco Mode (which reduces motor speed to 300rpm), make the SV60 one of Yanmar’s most eco-friendly models ever.
George Arblaster, owner at F M Arblaster & Son commented: “When it came to expanding our agricultural contracting business with the addition of a new excavator, we originally visited Mawsley Machinery to look at a second-hand model from another manufacturer. However, when we spotted the all-new SV60, we knew it was the perfect machine for us.”
Offering the performance of a midi-excavator with the space-saving benefits of a more compact model, the SV60 delivers impressive lifting capacities and unmatched stability. Featuring Yanmar’s state-of-the-art ViPPS hydraulic system, operators benefit from precise control and powerful digging forces – 24.8kN on the arm and 41.9kN on the bucket.
George added: “Since taking delivery of the new model, we’ve been hugely impressed with its performance, comfort and capability. The smooth hydraulics and powerful performance maximise operator productivity, while the Stage V-compliant engine minimises fuel consumption.”
Leon Geoghegan, area sales manager for Mawsley Machinery, added: “When George visited our site in Brixworth and explained his requirements, we knew Yanmar’s SV60 would prove the perfect fit. We arranged a site demonstration with one of Yanmar’s fleet of demo machines and it wasn’t long before George was convinced the SV60 was the perfect excavator for him. After taking into consideration the wide range of contracting activities the model would be used for, we put together a package of extras, including rotation lines for hedge trimming and flailing work.
“Initial feedback has been hugely positive and we’re glad the SV60 has made an immediate business impact!”
