Yanmar Logo

Yanmar is one of the best-known diesel engine builders in the world, producing tens of thousands of engines every year. The company originated out of Osaka, Japan back in 1912. Originally founded by Magokichi Yamaoka.

The Yanmar company initially started production of small gasoline engines before moving on to small kerosene engines in the early 1920s. Everything changed in 1933 when the company started production of small compact diesel engines, something to this day, they are still known for achieving at some very high levels.

Today, Yanmar are best known for a wide range of products spanning agriculture, marine, both recreational and commercial, energy systems, construction and industrial engines. All of these areas have been thoroughly researched and products delivered from Yanmar to meet most expectations.

Like many other brands, Yanmar has been preferred engine brand for Sleeman & Hawken for many many years. With its great performance, availability and price it has been a ‘goto’ engine for many of our customers. We still recommend the Yanmar engine for many of our enquiries and will continue to do so.
