Operator’s Cabin

Z17 GEN:2 Compact Excavator

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.


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.


Gehl Z17 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.


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.
Width – Extended/Retracted (mm) 3’1″ (950) to 4’2″ (1280)
