Kubota U17-3 1.5 Tonne


The Kubota U17-3 is designed with narrow and restricted work spaces in mind, benefitting from a Zero-Tail swing design and variable tracks which can be adjusted down to a minimum width of 990mm and up to a maximum width of 1240mm – making it ideal for working on towpaths and restricted access points. Additionally it is also fitted with a ROPS canopied cab, for increased operator safety, which also folds down allowing for easy passage through areas with restricted headroom, such as canal bridges. All of our U17-3’s are also fitted with KLAC Quick-Hitch systems to enable for the faster, easier and safer changeover of attachments and buckets – please refer to our info sheet on KLAC Quick-Hitch systems for more information.
