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.

  • 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.
