Dependable, reliable and rental tough, the SV15VT delivers class-leading productivity in a highly compact package. A powerful engine and double gear pump hydraulic system ensures impressive performance, while compact dimensions make the mini excavator perfect for job sites where space comes at a premium.
Innovative design and a light transport weight makes the SV15VT it easy to move between sites, while best-in-class maintenance accessibility makes daily checks quick and simple.
Efficient and lightweight, the SV15VT is the perfect earthmoving solution for job sites where space comes at a premium. A short turning radius at the front and rear, combined with a wide boom swing amplitude to the left, make the machine perfect for trenching and landscaping work in tight urban areas or at residential properties.
Compact dimensions and a transport weight of just 1,465kg/1,555kg (canopy/cabin) mean the SV15VT can be easily towed between work sites, along with buckets and a light work tool, on a standard 2.5 tons GVW trailer. Four tie-down points on the track frames (standard) and four on the turning frame (optional) make transport preparation simple.
As with every model in the Yanmar range, the SV15VT has been designed with reliability and durability firmly in mind. The upper position of the boom cylinder, alongside hydraulic hoses routed inside the boom itself, provide truly class-leading protection. The SV15VT comes equipped with blade cylinder protection as standard, while optional bucket and arm cylinder guards can be specified to offer even greater machine protection. Collectively, these features ensure optimum efficiency, minimal downtime and low total cost of ownership.
Thanks to long/short arm and blade configurations, the SV15VT is highly versatile and adaptable to every application. The wide boom swing amplitude distribution further extends the working range of the excavator, ensuring ultimate efficiency and performance for the operator.
The extendable undercarriage improves flexibility and stability, the SV15VT is fully adaptable to the task in hand. Designed with shaped steel profiles and reduced clearance between sliding parts, to prevent soil build-up – yet another low maintenance design benefit.
Reliable and powerful, the SV15VT features a double gear pump hydraulic system, with 28 l/min and 205 bars maximum flow and pressure. The machine comes fitted with a standard auxiliary hydraulic line to power breakers or augers, delivering a flow of 29 l/min at a pressure of 120 bar. Operators benefit from a digging force of 7.4/12.9kN (short arm/bucket), traction force of 13.3/8kN (first/second speed) and two travelling speeds – either 1.9 or 3.7km/h with a selector on the blade operation lever, providing fingertip efficiency. A track frame layout, featuring three bottom rollers, ensures a comfortable and stable ride for the operator.
The easy-access cabin is the perfect combination of stylish design and efficient technology. With a fully-adjustable seat as standard, alongside ergonomically-designed control pedals, levers, switch boards and a state-of-the-art interface, operators are guaranteed maximum comfort and practicality. Thanks to innovative design and clever cab arrangement, the SV15VT provides unmatched visibility of the working area, alongside the added benefit of excellent air circulation.
Safety is considered pivotal in the design and development of every Yanmar machine. The SV15VT is no different, featuring a whole host of safety-critical technologies to keep the operator safe on site and drive increased productivity. Alongside 360° visibility from the operator seat, the machine features standard powerful LED work light and an orange seatbelt. Optional seatbelt sensor, additional work lights, flashing orange/ green beacons, travel alarms and a polycarbonate protective shield (for the canopy) offer unbeatable operator protection. Depending on specific job site requirements, customers can fully customize their machine. Flexibility and versatility – designed for you.
Thanks to best-in-class maintenance accessibility, operators can carry out daily checks, seamlessly. The wide engine compartment hood offers easy access to the powertrain, while the side panels and cabin floor are straightforward to dis-assemble, providing instant access to hydraulic components, the fuel/hydraulic tanks and the radiator. The battery and fuse box are located in a lockable compartment under the operator’s seat, thus maximizing safety. Collectively, these design features minimize the time taken to deliver daily checks and scheduled maintenance. Efficient, simple, effective.
