Hire The Yanmar SV16 Mini Excavator From MTS Plant

Japanese manufacturer Yanmar have a century-old reputation for farm and construction machinery. They are credited with developing the first mini-excavator back in 1968 and are often compared favourably with Kubota for reliability and performance.

The construction of the SV16 is no exception. A simple and well protected hydraulic system delivers the power you need, where and when you want it, while the counterweight behind prevents skid and pitch but is unobtrusive when you need to work in a tight space. Engine vibration and noise are minimal – always a good sign of quality – and two joysticks provide superb simultaneous control, making precision operations almost effortless.

The Yanmar SV16 is kind to the operator ergonomically. The cabin is particularly spacious for a mini excavator with easy access and good leg room. The seat is adjustable and the controls are all easy to reach. Air circulation, visibility and back support are all good. Even over rough uneven terrain, the movement is confident and controlled.

When you need to hire a Yanmar SV16 excavator, we understand that you need it quickly. These excavators are surprisingly light, easy to load up and deliver to off-road locations. We have local delivery teams in the North East, North West, Central Scotland and Yorkshire. The robust and reliable Yanmar SV16 is available to with competitive rates, so call us today.
