The SV40 is a 4-ton machine with a 39-horsepower electronically controlled Yanmar Tier 4 Final diesel engine. It comes standard with YANMAR’s patented quick coupler, SmartAssist remote communication system and a 4-year/4,000-hour warranty. Options for the SV40 include a second PTO function, 4 or 6-way blade and an additional counterweight.

“Redefining the definition of compact power, our new SV40 is pushing the limits on an excavator of its size. With best in class power, digging force and lifting capacity, this machine will be a game changer within the compact excavator segment,” says Jeff Pate, d ivision manager for Yanmar America’s Compact Equipment division.

The addition of the SV40 broadens the current excavator product lineup, with two other ultra-tight tail swing machines and another six excavators with true zero tail swing.

Starting with the launch of the world's first compact excavator in 1968, YANMAR has since expanded its excavator offerings to nine total models, six of which have true zero tail swing. Each excavator is a purpose-built to overcome the most challenging conditions, work with an efficient use of power, conserve fuel and provide exceptional flexibility with the same stability and performance you would expect from more conventional excavators.
