Komatsu introduces D37EX/PX-24 Dozer
Komatsu Europe announces the introduction of the D37EX/PX-24 dozer to the European market. An all-round compact performer built on the widely recognised benefits of its predecessor for any grading or earthmoving application.
The smallest model in the Komatsu dozer range, the D37EX/PX-24 features a Komatsu EU Stage IV engine with, according to Komatsu, class-leading power and unrivalled fuel efficiency, along with improved comfort and an automatic idling engine shut down system.
William Groven, product manager at Komatsu Europe says:
The D37EX/PX-24 is a compact, versatile and powerful dozer that is easily transported between different job sites. Residential and commercial developments, road works, land clearing or forestry, the D37EX/PX-24 with its hydrostatic drive is ideal for your light to medium dozing and grading applications.
Available in either long track-on-ground (EX) or low ground pressure (PX) configuration, the crawler dozer offers flotation and weight distribution options to customers, tailored to their applications.
The new Komatsu dozer features a powerful and efficient 3.26 litre, 66,1 kW (89 HP), SAA4D95LE-7 EU Stage IV emissions-certified engine with a “Heavy-duty” aftertreatment system. A Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system is now added to the Komatsu Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (KDOC), which requires only passive regeneration - with no fuel wasted to clean the exhaust filter.
Wear life of Komatsu’s high quality components was further increased, and a new triple labyrinth seal now protects the final drive from dirt and damage.
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 TFTLCD machine monitor, with ECO/POWER mode selection and operator identification.
The latest KOMTRAX telematics, and the Komatsu Care complimentary maintenance program, offer top fleet management and support, protect the machine against misuse and guarantee maximum efficiency and uptime.
John Deere Cold Planer Attachment
The latest addition to the John Deere Worksite Pro attachment line-up, the D-Series cold planers, transform a skid steer, compact track loader (CTL) or compact wheel loader into an efficient milling machine.
These attachments are ideal for customers performing street repairs, matching uneven pavement surfaces, cutting drainage in parking lots and cleaning up around larger milling machines.
The four new D-Series models (CP12D, CP18D, CP24D and CP30D) offer increased performance and productivity, delivering up to 10 percent more cut rate over their C-Series predecessors.
The exclusive angled soil-guard design prevents the wheels from riding up and over millings. Significantly reduced rolling resistance also increases cutting force.
Increased weight on the new models helps keep the planer in place and reduces bounce, for a smoother cut, while the planing-drum mounting enables closer planing near curbing. The tilt can be adjusted independently to allow planing on both the left and right sides of the machine.
Uptime boosting features include protective shields for electrical and hydraulic components, solid hardened-steel wheels and cylinders that are positioned up and out of the way of obstructions and debris.
With the universal, self-cleaning Quik-Tatch easy attachment system found on all John Deere skid steers, CTLs and compact excavators, the machine can easily add and remove the cold planer in no time.
