A tailswing of 1-foot 5-inches (470 mm) more than the 8025 ZTS, combined with a very low center of gravity provides a 19% greater lift capacity than the market leader.
At the 8029 CTS compact excavator’s dig end, our box-fabricated boom and dipper is capable of 8-feet 9-inches (2.74 m) dig depth, 15-feet 6-inches (4.77 m) reach and 10-feet 5-inches (3.22 m) dump height. Excellent bucket rotation and class-leading tear-out forces mean great prod
