GDR Sales gets UKs first Yanmar SV120

GDR Sales has taken delivery of the first Yanmar SV120 midi-excavator sold in the UK. Retailed through Ben Burgess, Yanmar’s official dealer for Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Rutland, the new model will be used for riverbank maintenance, flailing and general building applications. 

One of the most powerful machines in the Yanmar portfolio, the SV120’s compact design and short tail make it ideal for tight job sites, while its offset boom (unique on a machine of this size) allows operators to work in small spaces, close to walls and across the entire track width without having to reposition the excavator.

Featuring a Deutz 3.6-litre, 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine, the SV120 delivers 85kW (116hp) at 2,000rpm and 400Nm torque at 1,600rpm, all fed through a pressure-controlled autoshift transmission. A hydrostatic travel drive (with planetary reduction gears) allows the SV120 to travel in two speed ranges, 0-2.7km/h in forward and 5.4km/h in reverse – at gradients up to 60%.

With four independent hydraulic circuits, the SV120 can use a wide variety of tools, including buckets and rock breakers, loading hooks and pallet forks. A hydraulic pump capacity of 190L/min and a maximum working pressure of 350bar deliver a digging force of 81.5kN for the bucket and 61kN for the arm.
