The most compact machine you’ll find of its kind, the ViO17 can also be both the narrowest and widest, thanks to its variable undercarriage. This means it’s also the most stable. It also leads the field in other important areas, thanks to its monoblock chassis for robustness, and three pumps which allow it to generate the most power of any comparable machine. Exceptionally durable, the ViO17 is also surprisingly easy to maintain.

The ViO17 is the most compact machine in its class, and with its zero tail swing it’s the ideal choice for working in tight conditions. The machine’s upper frame can slew within its track width, enabling the operator to concentrate on the task in hand without worrying about damage. Easy to transport, the ViO17 is intended for a wide range of applications, including urban renewal, grading and landscaping.


The ViO17 is fitted as standard with a variable undercarriage which can be easily extended or retracted by operating a simple lever. It means it can go from the narrowest of its kind to the widest – factor in its extremely low centre of gravity and it’s not surprising that it also offers the best stability in its class. In addition, the one-piece monoblock chassis provides extra robustness and acts as a counterweight, distributing weight over 360 degrees all around the machine.


High-capacity hydraulic oil, the cooling system, and other components are all designed for maximum efficiency, ensuring no overheating or loss of hydraulic performance, even in hot conditions. Powerful yet quiet, the engine offers excellent fuel economy. ViPPS hydraulics deliver controllability and power, while thanks to its three pumps (two variable flow and one gear pump), the ViO17 generates more power than any machine of its size. Even the bucket breakout force is top level.


The ViO17 is very well balanced, with higher lifting capacities and unloading height than you might expect in such a compact frame. There’s a large front lifting capacity with raised blade, plus a lifting cylinder under the arm to ensure a higher lifting force. This cylinder, like all parts of the arm, is completely protected. The higher position of the blade allows easy travel operation in difficult ground conditions and makes it easier to stay level on sloping ground, while trench digging involves no footprint.


Durability is a key feature throughout, with even the hoses protected with abrasion-resistant sleeves. The structure of the chassis and durable steel covers provide fool-proof resistance. In addition, the large counterweight protects against possible shocks and friction against the walls. The ViO17 also benefits from unique and complete protection of all its boom and arm cylinders. Cylinder tubes and rods are all safeguarded by a spring type steel plate, which significantly reduces the total cost of ownership of the machine.


To lower maintenance time and costs, the rear and side covers, the panel under the seat and the removable floor all provide direct access to service points. This means that the fuel tank, radiator, battery, generator,  hydraulic equipment and return filter and more are all quickly reachable. Even the distributor under the platform is easily accessible. In addition, the blade cylinder flexible is made of two parts for quick replacement in case of perforation. The rear-opening bonnet allows for easy daily inspection of the engine.
