Product Description

If confined areas are where you work the U17-3 is the perfect machine for you. Powerful, maneuverable and versatile with the control you want and performance you need, the U17-3 now comes with improved pump capacity, an extended dozer arm and many other upgrades to get the job effectively and efficiently.

Now with 17 horsepower for greater performance, this engine delivers outstanding fuel economy, together with low vibration and noise levels.

You’ll never have to worry about what is next to or behind you with the zero swing tail on the U17-3, no matter how far you turn, the tail always remains within the width of the tracks with excellent balance, stability and faster work output, especially in heavily congested areas.

Double-flanged track rollers improve undercarriage durability and travel stability while the short-pitched rubber crawlers minimise travel vibration, for better operator comfort. With an adjustable hydraulic track gauge between 990mm-1240mm, accessing narrow spaces has never been easier.

The U17-3 combines a strong bucket breakout force of 1550kg with a dedicated bucket and quick coupler plus superior lifting capacity for digging, lifting and loading. Even when working on the side, using hydraulic attachments or lifting heavy objects the counter balance technology, long tumbler distance and low centre of gravity ensures stability.

Versatility and the ability to tackle a variety of jobs are now possible, thanks to the new hydraulic pump capacity of 45 litres per minute. The new extended dozer arm, that optimizes the bucket to dozer clearance, makes picking up items close to the machine a cinch and prevents rocks or soil form getting caught between the dozer and the crawler. To prevent damage, the boom cylinder is located above the boom.

The U17-3’s versatility is undeniable with its new hydraulic pump allowing many jobs with several different attachments.

Keeping you informed of the current working conditions is the LCD digital display control panel that has readouts for RPM, temperature and oil levels and a warning alarm when the fuel tank is nearly full. Routine maintenance and diagnostics are also displayed.

Wide opening engine covers and easy access to components make routine inspection and maintenance quick and easy.
