Our most popular in the fleet, the Kubota 1.7 Tonne Excavator (U17-3), provides performance and efficiency where space is limited. This compact excavator delivers the power you need, the control you want, and the smooth performance you demand.

High performance in tight spots

With a Zero-tail swing radius, the Kubota 1.7 Tonne Excavator’s tail always remains within the width of the tracks. This means you never have to worry about what is to the side or behind you while you work. It also ensures excellent balance, stability, and faster operation, making this compact excavator ideal for jobs in congested areas.

What’s more, you can reduce the track gauge to 900 mm with a single lever, allowing you to navigate narrow spaces.

Strong, mighty, yet compact

This excavator features a strong bucket breakout force for heavy loads and tough excavating jobs. Thanks to its innovative counter balancing technology, long tumbler distance, and low centre of gravity, the Kubota 1.7 Tonne Excavator  provides excellent lifting capacity.

Ultimate comfort

A deluxe high-back seat increases operator comfort whilst its auxiliary hydraulic system accommodates a variety of attachments, like breakers and augers.

Kubota U series

Designed and built from the ground up, the Kubota U series excavators offer best in class breakout performance, superior comfort and all-round versatility.
