Operator's Cabin

The Z45 GEN:2 is available in canopy or cab configurations, allowing you to tailor the machine to meet your specific work environment.

* Large cab offers state-of-the-art controls, digital display and excellent visibility.

* Walk-through canopy for easy entry and exit.

* Optional cab enclosure with heat or heat/air-conditioning system provides protection in extreme weather conditions.

* Adjustable suspension seat and armrests provide personalized comfort.

* 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.



The controls on the Z45 GEN:2 compact excavator are ergonomically designed and easy to use.

* Digital Operator Interface shows real time system information, service reminders, and 90 days of

operating history.

* 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 or joystick buttons, 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.



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.



The undercarriage of the Z45 GEN:2 compact excavator 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.



The Z45 GEN:2 compact excavator is built around a powerful, reliable emission-certified Tier IV Yanmar diesel engine.

* Yanmar Tier IV certified diesel engine with 37.7 hp provides excellent balance in power and fuel


* ECO Mode can be activated from the cab with a switch. When activated, the engine speed is reduced

by 10%, reducing fuel consumption for lowered operating costs.

* Auto Deceleration lowers noise and emissions levels when the hydraulic movement has not occurred

for more than four seconds. This increases fuel economy and lowers operating costs.

* 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.

The advanced hydraulic system on the Z45 GEN:2 provides long-lasting, efficient power precisely when you need it.

* Standard auxiliary proportional hydraulics give the operator infinitely variable control of the

hydraulic flow.

* 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.
