The Yanmar V7 compact wheel loader features low center of gravity, light weight and high speed, the company says.

Yanmar touts its new V7 compact wheel loader as quick on the jobsite, easy to transport and with a high bucket capacity.

It also features 10 degrees of oscillation at the center of the machine rather than the rear, along with 40 degrees of articulation. “This maximizes ground contact with all four wheels for optimal tractive force,” the company says.

The new articulation and oscillation joint gives the loader a lower center of gravity and a height of 98.4 inches, which makes it small enough to move around tight jobsites and easier to tow, the company says.

The V7 runs on a 47.6-horsepower Yanmar engine and is designed for small construction jobs, rental and landscaping. It comes standard with a .92-cubic-yard bucket. The company added “P-Kinetics,” which is the name for its parallel lifting technology that keeps the bucket and forks parallel to the ground no matter the conditions to reduce spillage.

Lifting capacity is 7,981 pound-force. Travel speed is 18.6 mph.
