Z17 GEN: 2



Operator's Cabin: The ergonomic operator's cabin on the Z17 GEN: 2 provides excellent visibility and easy entry and exit.

• Walk-through canopy for easy entry and exit.

• Excellent visibility in all directions allows safe and efficient operation. Rear mirror provides a view of the back and side of the machine for additional safety.

• Work lights and integrated boom light enhances the operator’s view after dark.

Controls: The controls on the Z17 GEN: 2 are ergonomically designed and easy to use.

• Large travelling pedals are easy to press and allow confident, reliable work.

• Pilot operated joystick controls are operated by simple wrist movements, reducing fatigue during a long workday.

• One-way auxiliary functions can be controlled by a foot pedal, allowing optimal control of high-flow attachments such as compactors or breakers.

• The operator can easily select from ISO or standard operating control patterns with the flip of a mechanical lever.

Boom: Rugged, high-strength boom incorporates features to protect and extend the life of moving parts and components.

• Precision welded boom is constructed with thick side plates that are reinforced by contoured transition plates.

• Heavy-duty sliding cylinder guards protect exposed cylinder rods from damage.

• Integrated boom light illuminates the work area and allows for safe and effective operation after dark.

• Reliable single pin boom mount design for optimal durability and component life.

Undercarriage: The undercarriage of the Z17 GEN: 2 was designed with serviceability and longevity in mind.

• Wide track gauge and an offset track drive system increase stability without adding to overall track width.

• Staggered tread and mandrel design combined with shorter track pitch reduces vibration.

• Long tracks provide a smoother ride over rough terrain.

• Tracks are short-pitched to reduce wear, fatigue and damage.

• Angled crawler frame reduces soil buildup on the undercarriage, extending the life of rollers and tracks.

Engine: The Z17 GEN: 2 is built around a powerful, reliable emission-certified Yanmar Tier IV diesel engine.

• Proven technology provides reliable operation and a fuel efficient system.

• Easy-starting, even in cold weather without the need for block heaters or starting fluid.

Hydraulics: The advanced hydraulic system on the Z17 GEN: 2 provides long-lasting, efficient power precisely when you need it.

• Hydraulic system is designed to enhance engine performance, resulting in a more efficient system.

• Two variable pumps and two gear pumps combine oil and redirect the flow to where it is needed, allowing for simultaneous operation without loss of power.

• Smooth operation, even while using the boom and arm during turning.

• Auxiliary hydraulic valve, tubing and hoses with flat faced coupler connections are standard equipment.

• Two-way and one-way auxiliary flow valve with direct-to-tank bypass valve feature is standard equipment.


• The large, rear hood opens easily to expose the engine oil, air cleaner and water supply to the cooling water sub-tank.

• The removable left-hand side cover grants access to the hydraulic system and return filter cartridge.

• The removable right-hand side cover allows access to the fuel tank and radiator.

• The access panel in front of the driver’s seat easily opens to reveal the battery, starter motor and fuse panel.
