What's New In Plant & Equipment
2 From Komatsu - continued
The new Komatsu PC230NHD-11 tracked excavator
Proportional control joysticks are fitted as standard for the precise operation of attachments. The cab is mounted on viscous isolation dampers for low vibration levels.
ROPS certified, it is specifically designed for hydraulic excavators and gains strength from a reinforced box structure framework.
A Neutral Detection System further improves safety: if the work equipment levers are not in a neutral position when the lock lever is released, the machine is prevented from any movement.
The standard air suspension high back seat has newly designed fully adjustable armrests for improved comfort. In addition to the standard radio, external devices to play music through the cab speakers can be connected to an auxiliary input, and two 12-volt power ports are also included.
A high-resolution 7” LCD colour monitor features enhanced capabilities and shows information on AdBlue fluid level, Eco guidance, operational records, fuel consumption history and utilization data. Text can be displayed in 26 languages for global support.
The operator can easily select up to six working modes to match machine performance to the application. The standard rear-view camera gives a wide landscape view of the area directly behind the machine, and the new monitor panel’s default screen shows the camera image as well as gauges. An optional second camera is available.
World Première of DEUTZ TCD 9.0 engine
Broadening the product range through alliance with Liebherr the world première of the new TCD 9.0 is the highlight for DEUTZ at this year’s Bauma China
This four-cylinder diesel engine with a capacity of nine litres is the first in a new generation of engines that DEUTZ is planning as part of an alliance with the Liebherr Group.
As well as the TCD 9.0, this also includes six-cylinder diesel engines. The engines made by Liebherr within this cooperation will be sold by DEUTZ under its own brand.
The engine has a power rating of 300 kW and produces 1,700 Nm of torque. It also features a highly compact design that makes it easy to install in a wide range of applications and is particularly well suited for excavators and wheel loaders.
All new engines are being developed for the EU Stage V, US Tier 4, China IV and EU Stage IIIA emissions standards and will be ready to go into series production in 2019. They will follow a standardised concept with a common customer interface and a high proportion of shared parts and are to be distributed via DEUTZ’s global network of dealers and service outlets.
Michael Wellenzohn, member of the Board of Management of DEUTZ AG with responsibility for Sales / Service & Marketing:
DEUTZ is leading the way in exhaust aftertreatment using highly developed systems such as the diesel particulate filter (DPF), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and diesel oxidising catalyst (DOC).
“The familiar DEUTZ engine portfolio (TCD 2.2 to TCD 16.0) and the new Liebherr engines all meet the EU’s most stringent emissions standard, Stage V (applies from 2019). Emission downgrade versions will also be available, meaning a single engine platform can be used both for Stage V markets and for regions with more relaxed regulations.
