Clean-running Kubota Engine (Tier IV): We've upgraded the engine from 13HP to 17HP, so the U17 delivers more of the power and dependability your work requires. In addition to its superior horsepower and performance, it also offers low noise and vibration levels, exceptional fuel efficiency, and complies with the EPA's 2013 Tier IV emissions regulations.
Zero Tail Swing: 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 urban areas.
Improved Pump Capacity: We've increased the hydraulic pump capacity to 11.9 GPM (45 /min), giving you the boost of versatility you need to take on a wide variety of jobs.
Digital Panel: 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.
Protected Motor Hoses: For added protection, Kubota has enclosed the travel motor hoses within the track frame, resulting in reduced repair costs and increased durability.
Double-flanged Track Roller & Short-pitched Rubber 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. With the U17, a day on the job always goes smoothly.
Variable-width Undercarriage, Fits Through Gates: The U17 features a hydraulic track gauge that can be adjusted to between 3'3" and 4'1"(990mm and 1,240mm). With the touch of a single lever, you can reduce the track gauge to navigate narrow spaces or increase it to improve functionality.
