Five new U17s

31st March 2022

A new Kubota U17-3 mini excavator in the Didcot Plant forecourtIn the past seven days we have taken delivery of five new Kubota U17-3 mini excavators.

The 1.6t Kubota U17-3 is an ultra-short swing radius excavator with variable tracking and 2-speed travel. We’ve just added the first one to our hire fleet this week.

With the tracks drawn in the U17 measures just 990mm wide but once the tracks are extended to 1240mm the cab can be swung safe in the knowledge that the rear end won’t be colliding with anything close by, making it ideal for working in tight spaces or up against obstructions.
