Operator’s Cabin

  • Gehl Z45 Cabin
  • The Z45 GEN:2 is available in canopy or cab configurations, allowing you to tailor the machine to meet your specific work environment.

    • Large cab offers state-of-the-art controls, digital display and excellent visibility.
    • Walk-through canopy for easy entry and exit.
    • Optional cab enclosure with heat or heat/air-conditioning system provides protection in extreme weather conditions.
    • Adjustable suspension seat and armrests provide personalized comfort.
    • Excellent visibility in all directions allows safe and efficient operation. Rear mirror provides a view of the back and side of the machine for additional safety.
    • Work lights and integrated boom light enhances the operator’s view after dark.


  • Gehl Z45 Controls
  • The controls on the Z45 GEN:2 compact excavator are ergonomically designed and easy to use.

    • Digital Operator Interface shows real time system information, service reminders, and 90 days of operating history.
    • Large travelling pedals are easy to press and allow confident, reliable work.
    • Pilot operated joystick controls are operated by simple wrist movements, reducing fatigue during a long workday.
    • One-way auxiliary functions can be controlled by a foot pedal or joystick buttons, allowing optimal control of high-flow attachments such as compactors or breakers.
    • The operator can easily select from ISO or standard operating control patterns with the flip of a mechanical lever.


  • Gehl Z45 boom
  • Rugged, high-strength boom incorporates features to protect and extend the life of moving parts and components.

    • Precision welded boom is constructed with thick side plates that are reinforced by contoured transition plates.
    • Heavy-duty sliding cylinder guards protect exposed cylinder rods from damage.
    • Integrated boom light illuminates the work area and allows for safe and effective operation after dark.
    • Reliable single pin boom mount design for optimal durability and component life.


  • Gehl Z45 Undercarriage
  • The undercarriage of the Z45 GEN:2 compact excavator was designed with serviceability and longevity in mind.

    • Wide track gauge and an offset track drive system increase stability without adding to overall track width.
    • Staggered tread and mandrel design combined with shorter track pitch reduces vibration.
    • Long tracks provide a smoother ride over rough terrain.
    • Tracks are short-pitched to reduce wear, fatigue and damage.
    • Angled crawler frame reduces soil buildup on the undercarriage, extending the life of rollers and tracks.


  • Gehl Z45 Engine
  • The Z45 GEN:2 compact excavator is built around a powerful, reliable emission-certified Tier IV Yanmar diesel engine.

    • Yanmar Tier IV certified diesel engine with 37.7 hp provides excellent balance in power and fuel conservation.
    • ECO Mode can be activated from the cab with a switch. When activated, the engine speed is reduced by 10%, reducing fuel consumption for lowered operating costs.
    • Auto Deceleration lowers noise and emissions levels when the hydraulic movement has not occurred for more than four seconds. This increases fuel economy and lowers operating costs.
    • Proven technology provides reliable operation and a fuel efficient system.
    • Easy-starting, even in cold weather without the need for block heaters or starting fluid.

  • Gehl Z45 Hydraulics
  • The advanced hydraulic system on the Z45 GEN:2 provides long-lasting, efficient power precisely when you need it.

    • Standard auxiliary proportional hydraulics give the operator infinitely variable control of the hydraulic flow.
    • Hydraulic system is designed to enhance engine performance, resulting in a more efficient system.
    • Two variable pumps and two gear pumps combine oil and redirect the flow to where it is needed, allowing for simultaneous operation without loss of power.
    • Smooth operation, even while using the boom and arm during turning.
    • Auxiliary hydraulic valve, tubing and hoses with flat faced coupler connections are standard equipment.
    • Two-way and one-way auxiliary flow valve with direct-to-tank bypass valve feature is standard equipment.
