available in:


We designed the ZX17U-5 and ZX19U-5 to be capable of a higher workload in less time than other models in their class. Highly productive and fuel-efficient, they are ideal for working in urban areas on road construction and utilities projects, and in confined areas due to the short-tail swing radius.

They are also built to work in tough environments, with durable features such as a boom cylinder guard, V-shaped cylinder cover and D-frame. Maintenance is quick and easy thanks to wide-opening covers, and the convenient positioning of the radiator and oil cooler.

Comfortable and versatile

The ZX17U-5 and ZX19U-5 may be compact to fit into small spaces, but the cab provides you with a spacious and pleasant working environment. It has a three-post canopy design, to give you a better view of the job site, as well as a wide and luxurious seat, and user-friendly features.

An expandable crawler track makes both models suitable for a wide range of applications, particularly if space is limited or if you need greater stability. Lightweight and compact, they can easily be transported from one job site to another.
