Z80 GEN:2 Compact Excavator



Operator's Cabin

The Z80 GEN:2 comes with a fully enclosed cab as standard equipment providing ultimate in operator comfort.

* Standard 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 cab is mounted on five silicon oil filled iso-mounts, which reduce cab noise and vibration to the operator.



The controls on the Z80 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 joystick buttons, allowing optimal control of high-flow attachments such as compactors or breakers.

* The proportional control mechanism switch vastly enhances attachment performance, allowing the operator to set the flow for optimal attachment performance.

* 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 Z80 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.



The Z80 GEN:2 is built around a powerful, reliable emission-certified Yanmar diesel engine.

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

* ECO mode reduces engine RPM by 10% without sacrificing power when activated, saving fuel when full speed is not necessary.

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

* Auto deceleration improves fuel economy and lowers noise and emissions levels when activated by reducing engine speed to idle after four seconds without hydraulic movement.
