Kato Imer 17 VXE

The mini-excavator 17VXE, the new ultra-compact model, utilizes the technology of higher class machines. Power and speed of excavation are assured when working in confined spaces: in small restructuring work, in operations of excavation and maintenance of sewerage systems, in tunnels where larger machines cannot operate, but also in the gardening and nursery sector.

The Yanmar 3TNV70 3-cylinder engine has a low speed of rotation and a reduced exploitation index to improve durability and reliability over time. The high efficiency of the engine combined with an advanced hydraulic system ensures low fuel consumption and less noise and it limits polluting emissions according to the antipollution requirements of the 97/68/EU regulations.

While slewing, the chassis frame turns within the clearance of the tracks with the carriage extended, allowing greater safety for the machine and for the operator. If the carriage is closed access into confined spaces is facilitated.

The position is comfortable thanks to the adjustable spring seat, horizontal adjustment, tilting backrest and ergonomic layout of the controls. It is equipped as standard with servo-assisted joysticks that ensure the utmost precision.

Thanks to the extensible frame (980 – 1300 mm) the 17VXE ensures considerable safety and operational stability during side excavation and lifting operations in confined spaces or on particularly uneven or steep ground.
