Additional features of the 1.7 ton Kubota

More powerful engine
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.

Improved pump capacity
We’ve increased the hydraulic pump capacity to 11.9 GPM (45 l/min), giving you the boost of versatility you need to take on a wide variety of jobs.

Extended dozer arm
Kubota has extended the dozer arm to optimize the clearance between the dozer and the bucket — this makes collecting soil and rocks close to the machine simple and more efficient. And, the extended length of the dozer arm also helps prevent soil or rocks from getting caught between the dozer and the crawler.

Double-flanged track roller & short-pitched rubber crawler
Like many higher-end excavators, the U17-3 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 U17-3, a day on the job always goes smoothly.

Variable track width
The U17-3 features a hydraulic track gauge that can be adjusted to between990 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.
