The Yanmar Vi020 Compact Excavator

Vi0 Series
The "VIO" name means True Zero Tail Swing.
In 1993, YANMAR launched the world's first ZERO TAIL Swing excavator and is currently marketing the 6th generation model.

The ViO development objective of turning within the crawler width has been successfully achieved, while maintaining the stability and work performance of a conventional style unit.  The final hurdle has been cleared - you'll love the tight turning Global ViO. We have 7 models in the "VIO" series ranging from 3,836 lbs through 18,136 lbs.
Vi020-3 Works in spaces where there isn’t any, well, space.
Power won’t do you a bit of good if your excavator can’t work in a really tight space. The ViO20 lets you work quickly and effectively in tight, narrow quarters or adjacent to a wall or building. Its powerful, fuel-efficient 19.2-hp Yanmar diesel engine, industry-first true zero tail swing technology and deep digging depth lets you knock out tough jobs in no time. So no space is simply no problem.

Compact Excavator Vi020-3 Innovative Features

True Zero Tail Swing
Yanmar pioneered the first zero tail swing excavator in 1993. Today, our true zero tail swing technology means no part of the housing extends beyond the tracks. Since the entire machine operates within its tracks, you can work efficiently almost anywhere with less damage to the machine and the worksite.
Hydraulic Quick Coupler Comes Standard
The standard hydraulic Quick Coupler makes changing buckets fast and easy. With the exception of fitting and removing the safety lock pin, the entire operation is performed electronically while you’re seated in the comfort of the cab. Less hassle. Less downtime. More productivity.
The Stability of a Conventional Excavator
The ViO20 comes standard with ViO Crawler Technology for Advanced Stability (VICTAS). This innovative offset track technology provides increased stability without increasing the undercarriage width. You get the balance and stability of a conventional, standard-sized machine in a mini-excavator.
