Compact designs and powerful lifts from fuel-efficient engines are the hallmarks of the six new loaders from Yanmar. The new models include skid steers and a compact track loader with horsepower ranges from 46 hp. to 70 hp.

The T175 compact track loader is powered with a Tier 4 69 hp. diesel and is rated to lift up to 2,500 pounds. The machine also features a self-adjusting hydrostatic pump and the company's anti-stall system.
Sharing the T175's engine, the S190R skid steer loader can lift up to 3,800 lbs. and can accept a number of attachments for versatility.
In the track loader area, the next step up is the T210 with a 70 hp. turbocharged engine capable of 206 pounds feet of torque. Rated operating capacity is 2100 lbs. The T210 has automatic track tensioning to save downtime and labor.
The S220R skid steer loader is powered with a naturally-aspirated 70 hp. Tier 4A engine and in the cab, a standard air-suspension seat. Rated operating capacity is 2,200 lbs.
At the top of the heap is the S270V skid steer loader rated at 2.700 lbs. with a Tier 4A naturally aspirated engine, a self-leveling system and ride control and high-flow hydraulics.
