Komatsu America Corp.’s 264HP D85EXi/PXi-18 crawler dozer, the smart choice for any machine owner looking for intelligence and efficiency beyond what is typically available in machine control systems. Eliminating the need to install and remove blade-mounted sensors each day not only saves on machine and operator wear and tear, it converts potential downtime into more time spent running the machine. First-to-last pass, rough-to-finish automatic dozing extends production gains. Once engaged, the system automatically cuts and lowers the blade to grade in a typical dozing pass. If the load increases to a maximum, the blade automatically raises to minimize track slip to keep dozing productively. This intelligence achieves up to 8 per cent greater efficiency in moving material, based on start-to-finish grade testing against typical aftermarket machine control systems.
