  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
  • Compact Design.

    Reduced-tail-swing configuration, independent-swing boom, and 360-deg. rotation allow the 26G to work with ease in tight spaces and around obstacles.


    Rubber tracks’ unique steel cores resist cracking. Large-diameter drive sprockets and track idlers further increase undercarriage durability.

    Ease of Control

    Go from backhoe- to excavator-style controls with just a twist of your wrist. Control pattern selector valve is conveniently located in a compartment beneath the seat and includes a sight glass that displays the selected pattern.


    High-torque fuel-efficient diesels meet EPA Final Tier 4/EU Stage IV emission standards without after treatment devices — reducing maintenance and expense.Heavy-duty side-by-side coolers enhance efficiency in high-ambient or -altitude working conditions.


    Nearly unobstructed visibility provides a commanding view of the surrounding jobsite.


    No tools are needed to access daily or periodic checkpoints. Hinged steel doors swing open wide, for quick and easy service.
