Kubota introduces the U17 zero-tail swing compact excavator, delivering maneuverability, power and performance even in the most confined work spaces. The U17 provides increased hydraulic flow for fast, responsive operation and heightened traction force for tough backfilling jobs, as well as rubber tracks for a smoother ride and lower ground pressure. On the U17, productivity is maximized with a bucket close to the blade while operator costs are reduced with features like a digital control panel. With a strong 17-horsepower engine, the Kubota U17 is small in stature but packed with power and performance.
“Whether digging pools, lead-ins, or underground utilities, the U17 is the perfect fit for big jobs in small places,” says Keith Rohrbacker, Kubota product manager. “This machine was designed with features and performance-upgrades that will appeal to operator productivity and comfort.”
