Mini digger generates ‘very positive’ interest at Executive Hire Show

YANMAR Compact Equipment Europe has hailed its appearance at the recent Executive Hire Show as a ‘resounding success’.

The manufacturer said the star attraction on its stand at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry was the ViO17 mini excavator. The zero tail swing machine boasts a variable undercarriage (950mm-1,280mm) and permanently fixed, hinged blade extensions, described as being easy to fold-out.

David Cockayne, UK and Ireland sales manager at Yanmar CEE said, “Attracting rental professional from across the UK and Europe, the Executive Hire Show is a key event in the compact plant calendar. We were delighted with the response to showcasing our ViO17 mini excavator – the interest on stand was very positive.

“The UK construction market remains key for Yanmar and we are already planning additional investment and expansion over the coming years. With improved access to our portfolio, the industry is in a perfect position to understand what makes our equipment unique.”
