You thought this was a tough little excavator? Now with improved pump capacity, extended dozer arm and a ton of upgrades, the U-17 is better than ever.
Informative, interactive and functional, Kubota's Intelligent Control System LCD panel accurately displays timely diagnostic readings and routine maintenance alerts. You'll be kept informed of your current working conditions, engine RPM, temperature and oil levels. It even emits an alert when the tank is nearly full during refueling. These features help reduce downtime and costly repair fees.
Zero Tail Overhang
Zero-tail swing means you'll never again worry about what is to the side or behind you while you work. No matter how far you turn, the tail always remains within the width of the tracks. Zero-tail swing also ensures excellent balance, stability and faster operation, making the U17 ideal for jobs in congested areas.
Variable Track Width
The U17 features a hydraulic track gauge that can be adjusted to between 3' 3" and 4'1" (990 mm and 1,240 mm). With the touch of a single lever, you can reduce the track gauge to navigate narrow spaces or increase it to improve functionality.
Rollers & Crawler
Like many higher-end excavators, the U17 features double-flanged track rollers and short-pitched rubber crawlers for improved undercarriage durability. The double-flanged track rollers help improve travel stability and performance, and the short-pitched rubber crawlers help minimize vibration during travel for improved operator comfort.
Wide-opening covers provide easy access to the engine oil gauge, coolant reserve tank and dual element air cleaner. It's also easy to access the fuel filter and water separator, battery, radiator and oil cooler. Two-piece hose connections for the dozer and boom cylinders simplify hose replacement, reduce downtime, and virtually eliminate the need to enter the machine for maintenance.
