Tough job? Tight spaces? The Kubota U17 Compact Excavator is here to save the day. Standard two speed travel ensures you’re in total control of your excavator and a variable width undercarriage allows for maneuverability through narrow areas such as doors or gates. Rubber tracks make for a smoother ride and from your seat in the comfortable and spacious operator’s station, you’ll make ample use of the U17’s 16.1 horsepower rating.
