The Gehl 383Z zero-tail-swing hydraulic excavator weighs 7,826 pounds with a canopy and 8,002 pounds with a cab and has a maximum digging depth of 11 feet. The new machine uses a 29-hp Yanmar diesel engine, mounted on the side of the unit to allow a larger operator’s station, and employs two variable-displacement pumps and two gear pumps in its hydraulic system, which develops a 3,481-psi working pressure. The rubber-track undercarriage has a total length of 6 feet 10 inches and uses four rollers on each side. The 383Z is equipped with a blade and provides offset digging.
