Purpose-Built Productivity

The CX17C features a retractable undercarriage, variable-width blade and low-profile canopy height of only 7 feet 7 inches, allowing it to fit through gates, garages and entryways. With a trailer-friendly operating weight of 3,910 lb. it can be transported without special licensing or towing equipment. A zero tailswing design and adjustable boom that can be offset to the left or right enable the CX17C to easily operate against, parallel to and around obstacles. Auxiliary hydraulics, proportional controls and a hydraulic backfill blade come standard making the CX17C a powerful multiplatform machine for use with hammers, augers and other attachments, and the Automatic 2-Speed Travel improves travel across any terrain.

*Always check vehicle capacities and state or local laws for applicable roading regulations and requirements.
