Yanmar Compact Equipment North America is preparing to debut new products at the Equip Exposition in Louisville, Kentucky. Yanmar Compact Equipment will feature the newly introduced ViO17-1E mini excavator along with the ViO35-6A and SV40 models. Additionally, ASV's new Yanmar-powered RT-50 and RT-40 Posi-Track loaders will make their tradeshow debut while the MAX-Series RT-135F and RT-75 loaders will be showcased at the tradeshow for the first time.

"We are thrilled to have both an indoor booth space and a large outdoor demo area to showcase some of our newest additions to the Yanmar CE and ASV lineups," says Regan Meyer, Yanmar Compact Equipment North America marketing manager. "The new machines and two brands demonstrate how we strive to create equipment that meets the individual needs of our customers and helps take their businesses to new levels. We look forward to showcasing our newest solutions for the industry."

Yanmar Compact Equipment will showcase its ViO17-1E mini excavator. The recently updated ViO17-1E offers a 4,023-pound operating weight and 14.5-horsepower engine and is best suited for residential work, landscaping, and small general construction projects. Like all ViO models, the ViO17-1E features zero tail swing technology for ideal workplace performance in tight spaces. Yanmar Compact Equipment will also exhibit the company's SV40 model developed specifically for the North American market, as well as the ViO35-6A.

ASV's two new Yanmar-powered models are making their tradeshow debut: the recently introduced RT-50 and RT-40. Both models feature new Yanmar engines that can be serviced at ASV dealers. The machines have also been updated with some of the comfort and visibility features of the larger MAX-Series line. The new Yanmar-powered RT-50 is paired with a 53.8-horsepower Tier 4, three-cylinder turbocharged engine and utilizes ASV's Posi-Power system for an ideal tractive effort, pushing, and digging power. The compact track loader allows operators to be more productive due to a 58.5-inch width, a 9.1-foot lift height, a 1,400-lbs rated operating capacity, and a 7.1 mph top speed. The repowered RT-40 compact track loader includes a more powerful, new 38.2-horsepower Tier 4, 3-cylinder Yanmar engine and is outfitted with ASV's Posi-Power system like its RT-50 counterpart.

ASV's MAX-Series RT-135F and RT-75 loaders will be featured at Equip Expo for the first time. These models include a cab featuring 360-degree visibility, a more spacious operator area, a fully adjustable seat, a touchscreen display, and more.
