Komatsu D61-24 dozer

By On-Site   


The Komatsu D61-24 crawler dozer features a 6.8 liter, 168-horsepower, SAA4D107E-3, EPA Tier 4 Final emissions certified engine. The Komatsu Variable Geometry Turbocharger (KVGT) creates excellent engine response and helps maintain a high level of passive regeneration to ensure fuel isn’t wasted on cleaning the exhaust filter. More than 99 percent of Komatsu Diesel Particulate Filter regeneration is performed with no action required by the operator. The new model features upgraded blade durability and H-mode enhancement for high-duty cycle applications requiring extra engine speed. The D61-24 crawler dozer includes a choice between quick-shift, three-speed mode and a variable, 20-speed customizable transmission mode to suit personal preferences. The new auto-idle shutdown and economy modes help reduce idle time and save fuel. The telematics system and monitor provides key machine metrics, including KDPF status, DEF consumption, fuel level, operating hours, location, cautions and maintenance alerts. Operator ID also makes it possible to view KOMTRAX data by job, application or operator. A large, multi-lingual, 7 inch, high-resolution LCD monitor with Ecology Guidance helps operators monitor machine performance for maximum fuel efficiency and follow real-time integrated diagnostics for troubleshooting without a laptop. A standard rear-view monitoring system promotes increased operator awareness of potential worksite hazards. www.komatsuamerica.com.
