LAS VEGAS – Yanmar enters the compact track loader market with its very first compact track loader, the TL100VS. The TL100VS is NOT a rebranded loader from Yanmar subsidiary ASV.
With an expected four model line up, the TL100VS has a 10,286 tipping load. Similar to ASV designs, the new model has a clear-sided cab with complete visibility. The difference between ASV loaders and Yanmar loaders is a steel-embedded rubber track and steel sprockets. Steel cannot be found in any of ASV’s tracks.
The TL100VS can be equipped with optional efficiency-enhancing features like the self-leveling loader linkage, a load-sensing hydraulic pump, auto 2-speed drives and ride control. SmartAssist telematics are also an optional addition to TL100VS from Yanmar’s mini excavator line.
Finally, the Yanmar compact track loader has a new remote control option that lets the loaders be operated from a distance ensuring safety with a harness-mounted control box. This remote control option is able to be installed in the factory or in the field. The other new Yanmar compact track loader models are expected to be released later this year.
