Environmental and economic

Komatsu has developed a clean engine, that meets 2014 standards by improving 2011 regulatory compliance technology and adopting a new exhaust gas after treatment system

A standard auto idle stop automatically stops the engine at an arbitrarily set idling time – 5 to 60 minutes.

By installing a fan clutch between the engine and the fan, the fan can be rotated at low speeds when it is not needed to cool the cooling water.

Safety and operability

If the operator unintentionally releases the lock lever while operating the operation lever or pedal, a warning will be displayed on the monitor. When it is displayed the movement of the car body is locked.

With the various controls and levers on the armrests, seat adjustments can be easily made without tools.

Maintainability and maintenance

The newly installed AdBlue® tank replenishment port is equipped on the front right lift for easy access.

AdBlue® management

The AdBlue® fuel level is always displayed on the monitor screen. When it is time to replenish an AdBlue® remaining amount will be displayed to inform you.
