    The​​​ 16.8 HP (12.5 kW) provides plenty of power to the load-sensing hydraulics for a smooth and efficient operation in this compact and easily transportable package, measuring 7 ft 7 in (2320 mm) in height and 11 ft 5 in (3480 mm) in length.

    Slim frame posts ensure excellent all-round visibility, with good views of the boom and dipper. When working in a confined area, in urban areas, or between valuable crops such as in a vineyard, nursery or an orchard, you can operate a New Holland compact excavator with absolute precision for minimal disruption.


    Specify your C Series compact excavator with the arm length to best suit your requirements. Length on the E17C standard digging arm measures up to 3.2 ft (965 mm) and 3.8 ft (1117 mm) with the long arm.

    The standard arm yields 7.3 ft (2200 mm) of maximum digging depth and gets a maximum 7.9 ft (2350 mm) below surface with the long arm. With all this muscle, plus 1920 lbf (8.5 kN) of standard arm breaking force, the E17C will quickly become your partner in productivity.


    The standard arm on the E17C provides a maximum 8 ft 5 in (2570 mm) of dump height and 3490 lbf (15.5 kN) in bucket breakout force. If your operation requires a greater dump height, opt for the optional long arm that gets up to 8 ft 10 in (2670 mm) in maximum dump height.

    In addition, the available Object Handling Kit allows you to raise heavy, suspended loads using a lifting hook on the bucket linkage.


    The E17C has a left swing angle of 70 degrees and a right swing angle of 54 degrees. A larger left swing angle improves visibility to the side of the door for a more precise operation. Ample boom swing angles allow for efficient parallel digging, good for working alongside obstacles. Plus, forgoing the need to reposition the machine means you can complete the job faster.

    Boom pivot pins are secured by plate and bolt to reduce lateral movement and provide reliable performance in tough conditions. Plus, the pins give way to a long service life and lower whole-life operating costs.


    A variety of Control Modes allows you to operate a New Holland compact excavator with absolute precision for minimal disruption.

    Control Modes (joystick sensitivity):

    • Precision – Slower ramp rate for slow and precise movements
    • Normal – Standard joystick sensitivity for normal operations
    • Productivity – Faster ramp rate for rapid/dynamic movements
    • Individual – Sensitivity fully customizable to operator’s preferences

    Powering demanding attachments is a key New Holland advantage. With the right attachment, New Holland's excavators can be used for a diverse range of jobs from fence installation to concrete breaking. Job site versatility is bound to soar with the added advantage of high constant hydraulic flow and quick coupler.

    The Hydraulic Quick Coupler allows for hands-free coupling and release of buckets. Plus, safely swap between large, heavy attachments. Mechanical quick lock attachment brackets are also available.


    New Holland's E17C compact excavator is fitted with a canopy and carries a 3,910 lb (1775 kg) operating weight with a full fuel tank, operator and bucket. Additionally, the E17C is TOPS (tip-over) and FOPS (falling-object) compliant to protect the precious cargo inside. Low noise and vibration levels, an adjustable suspension seat and adaptable wrist rests ensure you can work for extended periods in comfort with no compromise in operator safety.

    Further improve productivity and reduce downtime with simplified daily checks when all key check and service points are grouped together.

    Plus, every New Holland mini excavator will come with New Holland Fleetforce™ Telematics advanced data subscription.
