Yanmar debuts fully electric trio: mini-excavator, wheel loader and tracked carrier

Yanmar Compact Equipment, a Japanese engine and heavy machinery manufacturer, has announced a new trio of electric-powered machines as part of its Unplugged range: a wheel loader, mini-excavator and tracked carrier.

All three new electric models match the output of Yanmar’s legacy ICE equivalents.

The SV17e Mini-Excavator is powered by an 18.3 kWh battery pack. It features two operating modes to optimize battery life and adapt to varying project demands. It musters digging forces of 9.9 kN and 8.9 kN from its short and long arms, respectively, as well as 16 kN bucket force.

The SV17e is designed for compact spaces, and its nearly silent operation makes it suitable for working indoors, as well as in noise-restricted areas. An optional fast charger can replenish the battery (20-80% SOC) in about 2 hours.

The V8e Wheel Loader boasts four working modes (Bucket, Fork, Eco, Power), a bucket volume between 0.8 and 1.2 cubic meters and a payload on forks of 1,890 kg. Two battery pack options are available: 39.9 kWh and 53.2 kWh. The latter provides up to 4.2 hours of continuous operation in Bucket mode. The loader’s synchronous motor offers 22 kW rated and 30 kW peak power. Charging power is 11 kW standard, upgradeable to 22 kW.

Yanmar’s C08e Tracked Carrier has a 5.5 kW (rated), 6.5 kW (peak) electric motor and a hydrostatic transmission to ensure smooth handling and operation on inclines up to 20 degrees. Its haul body can carry between 0.34 to 0.42 cubic meters. The 10.4 kWh battery pack has three selectable working modes—battery life is up to three hours in the most demanding mode.

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 3.5 hours.
