Equipped with a tailor-made hydraulic quick coupler as standard, the Yanmar ViO55-5B mini excavator facilitates single-person attachment changes for a carrier sized at 5.5 metric tons. With a digging depth of 13 feet 8 inches and a maximum digging force of 9,015 pounds, the Yanmar excavator features ViO crawler technology by Advanced Stability, delivering an expanded track gauge for increased stability without increasing undercarriage width.
