The company announced its 3-4-5 warranty package for all new and used skid steers and compact track loaders manufac- tured in the firm's Wisconsin plant and sold in the United States and Canada after Oct. 1, 2016. First off, there's a three-year or 3,000 hours full-machine war- ranty. There's a four-year or 4,000-hour powertrain warranty, which includes but is not limited to engine, hydrostatics and axles, and there's a whopping five- year or 5,000-hour electrical system warranty, which includes but is not limited to switches, electronic joysticks, instrument, display, indicators and wiring harness. The warranty is even transferrable and is designed to extend over multiple owners. Wow.

In April, the company announced it will implement a four-year/4,000-hour warranty for all of its com- pact excavators. This new warranty covers all mod- els ranging from its smallest, SV08, all six of its zero tail swing excavators from the ViO17 to the ViO80 and its largest compact excavator, the SV100. This new standard in the industry is a bold statement of Yanmar quality and should get prime consider- ation from every end-user that intends to purchase a compact excavator. It's a factory bumper-to-bumper warranty that covers all elements of the machinery, excluding normal maintenance procedures or wear items such as tracks and pins. For more info, visit
