Intuitive selectable load settings - Machine control

load settings can be adjusted between presets to

tailor response to material conditions.

The standard touch screen control box is factory

installed and features a simple, easy-to-use operator

interface.

Maximum operator comfort and an excellent view on

the blade due to the super-slant nose design.

process to generate important time

savings,”

says William Groven Product Manager at Komatsu

Europe.

The innovative machine control system allows

automated operation from heavy dozing to fine

grading. It senses and controls the blade load to

optimise the start of the cut and minimise track

slip.

The dozers can greatly enhance work efficiency

in any application, especially when a specific fin-

ished level must be guaranteed.

The system is fully integrated, there is no need

for operators to climb on the blade to install/re-

move GNSS antennas, no coiled cables to snag and

no electrical connections to worry about at the

start and end of every shift.

Powered by a 125 kW (168 HP), SAA4D107E-3,

EU Stage IV emissions-certified engine with a

“Heavy-duty” after-treatment system, the D61EXi/

PXi-24 emits up to 80% less nitrogen oxides (NOx)

than a D61-23.

This 6.8 litre diesel engine features a Komatsu

Diesel Particulate Filter (KDPF) and a Selective

Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. The KVGT creates

excellent engine response and helps to maintain

a high level of passive regeneration, with no fuel

wasted on cleaning the exhaust filter.

Komatsu’s target of high quality and lower costs

for customers is met also by the increase of wear

life for machine components.

On the D61EX/PX-24, the final drive is now

further protected from dirt and damage by a new

triple labyrinth seal, for superior durability.

The new high-comfort cab has an air suspension

high back seat, adjustable and heated. Possibilities

for fleet management are expanded thanks to an

upgraded high-resolution TFT-LCD machine mon-

itor, with ECO/POWER mode selection and operator

identification.

For the operator’s convenience, a shovel holder

was added to the back of the machine.

The latest KOMTRAX telematics, and the

Komatsu Care complimentary maintenance pro-

gram, offer top fleet management and support,

protect the machine against misuse and guarantee

maximum efficiency and uptime.
