Introducing the Bobcat E17z

22nd May, 2017

Bobcat, known for its powerful and affordable construction and farm machinery, launched the Bobcat e17z mini excavator in 2017. The machine is Bobcats most compact zero tail swing excavator.

A Popular Family

Bobcat e17z belongs to Bobcat’s 1.5T compact and high-performing mini excavator range, and is based on the popular E17 mini-excavator version. The equipment operates smoothly and the hydraulic design delivers hard core performance.

Zero Tail Swing

The zero tail swing makes the E17z most efficient for the narrowest of spaces. As tracks stay in their width, it becomes easier to manoeuver the cab freely through its entire 3600 rotation angle. This efficiency of movement ensures extreme safety of the entire rotation, preventing accidents with obstacles within the space.

With the zero tail swing, the machine offers greater balance and enables faster completion of tasks, making it ideal for congested spaces and building interiors.

Retractable Undercarriage

The retractable undercarriage allows adjustment of tracks to the required width, according to the space of operation. This feature is particularly useful in narrower areas and areas with limited access.

Enhanced Task Efficiency and Safety

E17z comes with an ergonomic cab, which provides a relaxed seating for the operator. The cab is designed to offer super visibility. This gives the operator an excellent view of the surroundings to carry on the task at hand more efficiently. The superior visibility also minimises risks of collision with nearby objects or people, especially in tighter spaces.

Affordable Canopy-Only Model

E17z comes in a canopy-only model, which makes the powerful machine highly affordable. The machine also saves costs on transportation; it can be easily mounted on a towable trailer of 2000kg maximum capacity. The E17z is a highly durable and reliable machine, which reduces maintenance costs.
