Bobcat® E17Z Zero Tail Swing Excavator

by admin

Narrow access on site will soon be less of a challenge with Bobcat Company set to launch the 1.7-tonne E17Z Zero Tail Swing (ZTS) compact excavator.

The E17Z provides an unmatched combination of features for a machine of its size:

  • ZTS
  • Roomy and comfortable operator area
  • Ease of transport thanks to a shipping weight close to 1.6 tonne
  • Impressive digging forces and working range
  • Smoothness of the workgroup functions
  • Fast hydraulic performance in terms of low cycle times
  • Reliability, durability and easy service access.

In the new E17Z, the ZTS functionality is taken a level further using Bobcat’s Zero House Swing (ZHS) design, in which the front upper structure is also fully protected by ensuring the front corners are kept within the swing circle when the tracks are in the fully expanded position. As a result, the ZHS functionality on the E17Z provides the peace-of-mind of 320° of free rotation when working close to walls and other obstructions, without sacrificing on operator comfort or performance.

The operator environment on the E17Z, in combination with excellent visibility, provides unmatched comfort and safety. The E17Z is built around the operator, providing optimal ergonomics for operators of all sizes, with easy access to the pedals and controls. The large canopy and entry/exit space provide the driver with plenty of room to get in and out of the machine.

The E17Z has a standard operating weight of 1749kg and a maximum digging depth of 2249mm. The compact size combined with great stability and a transport weight close to 1.6 tonne make this machine the perfect choice for applications in confined areas, and towable on trailers rated for 2200kg of total weight.
