Yanmar Compact Equipment has entered the compact track loader market with the debut of the TL100VS compact track loader at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023. The TL65RS, TL75VS, and TL80VS round out Yanmar's line of CTLs. The machines are intended for construction, rental, and landscaping use and range from 67 to 103.5 horsepower. Yanmar's compact equipment lineup is already made up of mini excavators, compact wheel loaders, and tracked carriers. The new compact track loader line diversifies Yanmar's product offering.

"These new compact track loaders create a full line of compact equipment and we are excited to bring more value to the market with the reliable products we're known for," says Buck Storlie, product manager at Yanmar Compact Equipment. "Customers love our mini excavators for their quality construction and trusted performance in any conditions and now those benefits will be available in our compact track loaders."

All of Yanmar's new compact track loaders include extra durability for the construction, landscaping, and rental industries. A Tier 4 Final Yanmar diesel engines offer an additional performance boost. The operator experience is a key focus in the machines with 360-degree visibility and a standard suspended seat. A removable roof hatch escape offers another safety feature for operators. 

The models also include several optional efficiency-enhancing features to improve the operator experience and overall productivity. These include a work tool positioner, return-to-position technology, self-levelling, ride control, and auto two-speed capabilities. These features help improve productivity on the job site and level out the learning curve for new operators to expedite the training process.  

The loaders incorporate Yanmar's optional SmartAssist telematics from the company's mini excavator line. Features range from error detection and notification to real-time operational status updates and daily work reports. SmartAssist also includes integrated theft protection, allowing the machine's owner to set a range from a specific location and trigger an alert if that range is exceeded.

Yanmar's compact track loaders utilize a suspended undercarriage with a pivot link system at the rear axle for added resistance to tough jobs. This linkage technology uses a spring load to reduce oscillation and stabilize the machine, helping to improve material retention and ride quality. Combined with highly durable bar-tread tracks, Tier-4 Final engines, and serviceability features, Yanmar's new compact track loaders provide an ideal ROI.

"As specialists in the compact equipment market, we designed these compact track loaders to be the whole package," Storlie says. "Our engines are already preferred on a wide array of compact equipment, and we're committed to upholding our reputation for excellence and reliability as Yanmar expands into the compact track loader realm." 

The TL100VS will start production in the Spring of 2023 while the other three machines will begin production in late 2023.
