Compact Excavator


Compact Excavator

Although the ZX17U-5 is our smallest excavator, it gives you big-time performance on all kinds of jobs. This tiny titan is nimble and designed to keep its tail close to its tracks so you can easily work in tight spaces.

Product Highlights

  • The Yanmar diesel engine meets EPA Final Tier 4 (FT4)/EU Stage IV emission regulations. It’s easy to maintain and requires no aftertreatment device.
  • Unique steel cores within rubber tracks resist cracking, and large-diameter drive sprockets and track idlers make for a rock-solid undercarriage.
  • Versatile rubber tracks minimize ground damage and allow machines to cross virtually any terrain, including paved surfaces.
  • Standard backfill blade adds versatility, enabling these compacts to grade and backfill, as well as provides extra stability.
