IHI releases new excavator models

New Zealand distributor for IHI products, Youngman Richardson & Co has released two new excavator models, the 17VXE and 19VXT.

Compact, powerful and versatile these new mini excavators are a continuation of what the IHI product stands for, says the company.

“Not only are they able to work efficiently where space is limited but also with their low emission engines they are very friendly to the environment,” says Youngman Richardson & Co sales director, Phil Fairfield.

“Thanks to technological innovation, including their design, these new excavators make working so much easier whilst ensuring maximum productivity.

“We’re very excited about these new machines and will be keeping a close eye on their potential given the growth in the New Zealand residential housing market. “These two excavators are just a sample of a wider variety of product that extends from 0.9 to 8.5 tonnes from IHI.”

The IHI 17VXE uses technology normally associated with bigger and higher-spec machines. Power and speed of performance is assured in small restructuring work that could involve the maintenance of sewage systems but can also include construction, gardening and nursery projects. A convenient side-opening bonnet provides easy access when engine maintenance is required.

The IHI 19VXT is said to be ahead of its time due to an expandable undercarriage (from 980 to 1310mm) making this model ideal for working in rough and narrow spaces. Ergonomic controls and servo assisted joysticks provide the ultimate in driver comfort.
