Develon introduces its smallest mini excavator yet

Develon DX17Z-7

The latest addition to the Develon mini excavator line, the DX17Z-7, weighs approximately 4,200 pounds and is the smallest member of the Develon mini excavator fleet. Unlocking potential for landscaping, residential construction and utility work, the DX17Z-7 can swiftly maneuver in tight workspaces. The DX17Z-7 features a retractable undercarriage with a collapsible dozer blade. This enables the mini excavator to squeeze into small spaces when needed and provides steady operation when working on slopes.

The 16-horsepower DX17Z-7 offers a 48-inch track width, and can travel between homes on tight lot lines or flush against existing structures in developed areas where larger equipment doesn’t fit. The machine’s zero tail swing design also makes navigating in urban areas and around confined worksites or obstacles easier.

The new mini excavator features an open canopy cab for optimal operator visibility. A selectable control pattern switch gives operators the ability to change between ISO and “backhoe” patterns depending on their preference.

The machine comes standard with the new My Develon telematics system that monitors the health, location and productivity of Develon equipment from a mobile app and website.

Auxiliary hydraulics are configured with flush face couplers to make quick, easy hose connections when using augers, breakers and other hydraulic attachments. The DX17Z-7 features a hydraulic quick-coupler-ready design with quick-coupler hydraulic piping installed to the end of the arm. Additionally, the DX17Z-7 has a thumb-ready design to grab and lift objects.

New Develon machines include full coverage for 36 months or 5,000 hours, whichever comes first, with parts and service support from a local authorized Develon dealer.
