Backslope Tools U-17 Replacement Ears


Your mini excavator works hard for you. Through long days in the scorching sun it moves earth, blazes trail and turns dreams into reality, all without the slightest complaint. It takes care of you and you should be returning the favor. Over time worn out bucket hangers will wear out your machine’s quick attach adapter and make for more expensive repairs

Our bucket ears are designed to replace the OEM Quick attach hangers on Kubota Excavators (U-17, KX41, and KX018). From our extensive experience operating machines in the field, we’ve developed bucket ears that are durable and easy to install, made right here in Grand Junction, CO.

When replacing the ears, leave enough material for our ears to be welded on. 


  • 5/8” thick steel
  • Quick connect pin hole diameter: ¾”
  • C-channel diameter: 2”
  • Flat plate bottom for easy installation on most buckets
  • For use with with K7966 couplers, Kubota Part # 70091-00157
  • Weight-9lbs/pair
  • Welding surface is 9"

Perfect fit

Used this to mount on a flat plate for a hydraulic breaker. Plenty of clearance for the plate. The fit with the U17 quick coupler was perfect.
