  • Work lights and integrated boom light enhances the operator’s view after dark.


The controls on the 170Z NXT2 are ergonomically designed and easy to use.

170Z NXT2 Controls

  • 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.


The 170Z NXT2 is built around a powerful, reliable emission-certified Yanmar Tier IV diesel engine.

Hydraulic Tank (L) 6.6 gal. (25)

  • 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.


The undercarriage of the 170Z NXT2 was designed with serviceability and longevity in mind.


Width - Extended/Retracted (mm) 3'1" (950) to 4'2" (1280)

  • 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.
  • Track hydraulically extend to 4' 2" (1280 mm) to enhance stability or retract to 3' 1" (950 mm) for passageway through doors and gates.


170Z NXT2 Serviceability

  • The large, rear hood opens easily to expose the engine oil, air cleaner and water supply to the cooling water sub-tank.
  • The removable left-hand side cover grants access to the hydraulic system and return filter cartridge.
  • The removable right-hand side cover allows access to the fuel tank and radiator.
  • The access panel in front of the driver’s seat easily opens to reveal the battery, starter motor and fuse panel.

Compaction Plate

Compaction Plate

EDGE compaction plates can be used anywhere a boom can reach in trenches, around foundations, on slopes or seawalls. Compaction plates can safely compact trenches, often eliminating the extra cost involved with a walk-behind unit and the added expense of trench boxes or shoring. EDGE compaction plates are also ideal for driving steel sheeting used for retaining walls.
