    17G Excavator


    The possibilities are nearly endless.

    Compact, yet highly capable, the 17G Compact Excavator do-it-all stands tall on a wide range of jobsites. In fact, it may well be the difference maker you need to put more opportunities within reach, and more profit in your pocket. Its retractable undercarriage and foldable blade narrow to just 0.98 m (3 ft. 3 in.), letting you take hydraulic muscle to places that might otherwise require manual labor. Noticeably quiet EPA Final Tier 4/EU Stage IV diesel engine meets rigid emission standards, so you can put it to work almost any place, any time. For tasks that demand something other than a bucket, your John Deere dealer offers a wide variety of Worksite Pro™ breakers, augers, and numerous other attachments — smart additions that can help expand your equipment utilization, as well as your business.
