The machine operates a straightforward, easy to service, hydraulic/electronic system.

The YC135-8 is also available with a strong and well positioned blade, and the cab is spacious and comfortable.

Auxiliary piping is fitted as standard, and with a strong undercarriage the YC135-8 offers great performance in variable ground conditions, with good stability.

Southland Farm Services is an Invercargill company that has operated Yuchai excavators since 2005, and purchased a 13.5-tonne Yuchai YC135 excavator in 2008. The machines are used for the works associated with dairy conversions and farm water systems, and Mark McMillan says Yuchais are reliable, strong, and cost effective machines.

Southland Farm Services worked with John Giltrap of Diggalink to design a special system that fitted a vibrating plough to the YC135 with a front mounted blade whilst still allowing the boom free to dig for trough levelling, placement and trenching. The result is a low-cost and efficient system with less damage to paddocks.
