Komatsu has launched its D85-18 crawler dozer in the US. A standard EX track model and a low ground pressure PX track model are available to offer customers flotation and weight distribution options that best match their needs.
Komatsu America Corp. introduced the D85-18 dozer. With a 264 hp, Komatsu SAA6D125E-7, variable geometry, turbo charged and after cooled, Tier IV Final certified engine, this new dozer leverages
“For anyone looking for a large construction or small mining size dozer, the D85-18 hits the sweet spot,” said Chuck Murawski, Komatsu America product manager.
“Whether you’re dozing, leveling or spreading, it has the speed and power to get the job done and it saves you fuel in the bargain,” Murawski said.
The crawler dozers have Komtrax technology. Data such as fuel levels, DEF levels, operating hours, location, cautions and maintenance alerts are relayed to the web application for analysis.
A new operator identification system reports key operating information for multiple operators and a new auto idle shutdown function helps reduce idle time as well as operating costs.
The Komatsu EPA Tier IV Final engine uses an advanced electronic control system to manage the air-flow rate, fuel injection, combustion parameters, and after treatment functions to optimize performance, reduce emissions, and provide advanced diagnostic capability.
The result is lower fuel consumption with no loss of performance. Komatsu continues to use a Komatsu variable geometry turbocharger and exhaust gas recirculation valve with hydraulic actuator for more precise temperature and air management control as well as longer component life.
