Compact Excavator Vi055-6A Features

VIPPS (VIO Progressive 3-Pump System)
The VIO series excavators utilize multiple variable displacement piston pumps and gear pumps. The load sensing pumps in combination with YANMAR's innovative hydraulic circuitry design, allow fast, smooth and powerful performance even when combining functions of the boom, arm bucket and swing
Hydraulic Quick Coupler Comes Standard
The standard equipment hydraulic coupler expands the versatility of the VIO series by allowing a variety of bucket sizes or attachments to be used, saving the contractor the expense of bringing other machines to the job site. The YANMAR hydraulic quick coupler adapts to most bucket pin sizes and spreads, allowing the VIO to adapt to other manufacturers products.
VICTAS (VIO Crawler Technology for Advanced Stability)
This Advanced Stability is due to YANMAR's offset track technology and the results are outstanding. Due to this technology the Vio Series offer increased stability without increasing the undercarriage width and the short-pitch rubber crawler reduces vibration when traveling.
