Wisnu said Yanmar's well-known diesel engine products were the YTG Generator Set and the Horizontal Diesel Engine. Meanwhile, Yanmar's light agricultural equipment products include Rotary Hand Tractors, Cultivators, Grain Breaker Machines, Rice Whitener Machines, and Rice Grinding Machines.
For heavy agricultural equipment, Yanmar products already dominate the market with a market share of 50%. Yanmar's heavy agricultural equipment products that have dominated the market are 4-Wheel Tractors and Combined Rice Harvesting Machines.
Wisnu is optimistic that Yanmar will be able to achieve its market share target of over 50% because it is driven by agricultural and industrial activities which have started to get excited in the second semester. Moreover, the company also issued the latest, more sophisticated technology.
