The ViO20-6 is equipped with a large, LED-backlit LCD monitor that allows the operator to monitor operating conditions and alerts the operator in the event of malfunction. In addition to adopting an LED on the built-in boom light, Yanmar has newly added a spring steel cylinder rod guards to protect the hydraulic cylinder and improve durability.
