Yanmar celebrates 50th anniversary of tracked carrier
Yanmar is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the YFW500D, the world’s first tracked carrier equipped with a Yanmar diesel engine.
The original carrier used the undercarriage of a Yanmar rubber crawler combine harvester, adding a cargo box to enable it to transport materials on soft ground.
Created in 1971, the YFW500D was officially the world’s first tracked carrier. The pioneering model was the first in a long line of quality products from Yanmar, each of which was developed to meet specific market needs.
Yanmar is marking its 50th anniversary celebration by renewing the company’s commitment to developing high-performance products and solutions that offer premium reliability and value for customers.
Through Yanmar’s contributions to urban development, including housing construction and infrastructure development, the company aims to build a society where everyone can live with peace of mind.
