Komatsu brings new machine control system to D51i-24 and D61i-24 dozers
By On-Site StaffEquipment
Komatsu’s D51i-24 and D61i-24 dozers, 131 and 168 horsepower respectively, are now available with the manufacturer’s intelligent Machine Control (iMC) system.
The equipment maker introduced the iMC 2.0 system, designed to improve job site productivity, on the two dozers last week.
The proactive dozing control system measures the terrain it tracks over and uses that data to plan the next pass, allowing less experienced operators to automatically cut/strip from existing terrain. Komatsu says productivity can improve by up to 60 per cent compared to the previous generation.
Likewise, other automated features, such as lift layer control and tilt steering control, help improve efficiency on each pass.
