Yanmar introduces its first compact track loader
Yanmar Compact Equipment has introduced its TL100VS compact track loader—the first machine in its new compact track loader line. The loader is designed specifically for the construction, utility and rental industries. The TL100VS offers “Yanmar reliability, productivity and intuitive features for enhanced efficiency and easy training for new operators,” the company says.
“We are thrilled to introduce the new TL100VS to Yanmar’s lineup of reliable compact equipment,” says Buck Storlie, product manager for Yanmar Compact Equipment. “The TL100VS is a perfect example of Yanmar’s dedication to providing customers with a full line of compact equipment in North America. The TL100VS and the rest of the upcoming compact track loader line incorporate the qualities people have come to expect from Yanmar compact equipment—reliability, performance and quality in a compact package.”
The TL100VS comes equipped with a 103.5 horsepower Tier 4 Final Yanmar diesel engine and standard 41 gallons per minute high flow to optimize performance capacity and efficiency on the job site. It also has a 3,780-pound standard operating capacity and a 10,800-pound tipping load. Travel speeds up to 8 mph round out the performance-enhancing features while 4.4 PSI ground pressure allows smooth performance on sensitive, unstable surfaces.
The new construction-grade loader features a torsion axle suspended undercarriage with a pivot link system at the rear axle. This linkage technology uses a spring load to reduce oscillation and stabilize the machine, helping to improve material retention and ride quality. Additionally, the TL100VS includes large line sizes, hydraulic coolers and direct-drive pumps, transferring more flow and pressure directly to the attachment and reducing power loss.
The TL100VS improves operator experience with premium 360-degree visibility and a state-of-the-art 7-inch color display for improved convenience on the job site, Yanmar says. Operators can work longer days in comfort with a standard suspended seat and maximize safety with a removable roof hatch escape.Performance
