Yanmar Compact Equipment EMEA has unveiled its electric construction equipment at Intermat 2024, both aligning its sustainability objectives and meeting market demands for eco-conscious solutions.

Yanmar CE's trio includes a fully electric wheel loader, mini-excavator, and tracked carrier. The zero emission and cordless-in-use V8e, SV17e and C08e are tailored to meet the diverse demands of modern and sustainable construction projects and indoor work environments – without compromising on power and performance.

The new electric range matches the output of Yanmar CE’s renowned internal combustion engine (ICE) compact equipment, ensuring seamless integration into a broad scope of applications.

From landscaping and utility to urban and indoor construction, operators can be sure that these machines are ready to tackle even the toughest demands, all while adhering to the most stringent emission legislations.

The SV17e Mini-Excavator (1,955 kg operating weight) combines environmental responsibility with top-tier functionality. Powered by a robust 18.3 kWh battery, it features two operating modes to optimise battery life and adapt to varying project demands.

Demonstrating exceptional performance, it showcases formidable digging forces of 9.9 kN and 8.9 kN from its short and long arms, respectively, and is further bolstered by a potent 16 kN bucket force.

Ideal for compact spaces, the SV17e measures 2.33 meters in height and has a variable width of 0.98 to 1.32 meters.

Its nearly silent operation minimises auditory disturbance, enhancing the comfort for machine operators and making it particularly suitable for working indoors, as well as in environmentally sensitive or noise-restricted areas.

The new V8e Wheel Loader (4,500 kg OW) offers four working modes (Bucket, Fork, Eco, Power) to fit the operator’s needs like a glove, combined with a bucket volume between 0.8 and 1.2 cubic meters and with an impressive payload on forks of 1,890kg to maximise performance.

It is further coupled with a high-capacity battery (available in standard 39.9 kWh with an option to upgrade to 53.2 kWh), providing up to 4.2 hours of continuous operation in bucket mode.

The V8e also comes with best-in-class flexibility offering a full working day autonomy, and additional onboard charging power reducing by half the charging time.

Prioritising operator safety and comfort, V8e features a newly designed cabin with increased visibility and comfort.

Yanmar’s C08e Tracked Carrier (730-880 kg OW) combines a high-performance electric motor that provides 5.5 kW rated and 6.5 kW peak power, with a hydrostatic transmission to ensure smooth handling and operation on inclinations up to 20 degrees.

Its haul body can carry between 0.34 to 0.42 cubic meters, tailored for high-demand tasks. The vehicle operates on a 10.4 kWh battery, featuring three selectable working modes—eco, performance, and high performance—to optimise energy use and extend battery life up to three hours in the most demanding mode.

The carrier offers a half working day autonomy, depending on the application. For charging, the C08e uses a standard 3.3 kW off-board charger, compatible with a P17 blue plug for grid connection and a REMA socket for direct machine linkage, which fully recharges the battery from 20% to 80% capacity in just 3.5 hours.
