The engine on Kubota’s U17 has been upgraded from 13 hp to 17 hp, delivering more of the power and dependability your work requires. It also offers low noise and vibration levels, exceptional fuel efficiency, and complies with the EPA’s 2013 Tier IV emissions regulations. 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. Kubota has extended the dozer arm to optimize the clearance between the dozer and the bucket.
