The under-deck hydraulics
can be accessed quickly and
easily for routine maintenance.
There are no bolts to
unscrew—just lift the rubber
mat and open the floor plate.
Wide-opening covers provide easy access to the
engine oil gauge, coolant reserve tank and dual
element air cleaner. It’s also easy to access the fuel
filter and water separator, battery, radiator and oil
cooler. Two-piece hose connections for the dozer and
boom cylinders simplify hose replacement, reduce
downtime, and virtually eliminate the need to enter the
machine for maintenance.

Protected front hoses
For greater protection, the U17’s front hoses are routed
within the arm. This design also improves operator visibility,
increases hose service life, and lowers repair costs.
Protected motor hoses
For added protection, Kubota has enclosed the travel
motor hoses within the track frame, resulting in reduced
repair costs and increased durability.
