The Gehl 383Z excavator features zero-tail-swing maneuverability, which allows the machine's superstructure to rotate entirely within the tracks. The 383Z can operate close to walls and obstructions without risk of contact. It weighs 7,826 pounds with a canopy and 8,002 pounds with a cab. The size of the operator's compartment is maximized by mounting the 29-hp Yanmar diesel engine on the side of the machine, and the hydraulic and fuel tanks on the rear of the machine, providing the operator with more space and leg room.
