New D65-17 bulldozers launched
Komatsu Europe International introduce new line of EU Stage IIIB emission-compliant dozers
KOMATSU Europe International have introduced a new line of D65-17 crawler dozers, powered by the fuel-efficient and larger-displacement 8.9-litre, EU Stage IIIB emission-certified Komatsu SAA6D114E-5 engine.
Built upon proven Komatsu technology used for the EU Stage IIIA emission regulation, with the D65-17 Komatsu have leveraged their expertise in technology and innovation to design an environmentally friendly engine that increases net power while decreasing fuel consumption by 5% over the Stage IIIA model it replaces.
Standard (EX), low-ground-pressure (PX) and a wide-track (WX) models are available to offer customers flotation and weight distribution options that best match their applications. Operating weight ranges from 22 tonnes to 23.8 tonnes, depending on the version. The new models deliver 205hp at 1,950 rev/min.
Developed primarily as a multi-purpose unit for applications ranging from heavy-duty dozing to fine grading, the D65-17 combines the Sigmadozer blade with an efficient automatic transmission with torque converter lock-up to achieve high levels of productivity. A new Komatsu six-way power angle tilt (INPAT) blade is available for all models, creating a balanced and nimble tractor for both light and heavy-duty dozing operations.
The new dozer is equipped with the latest Komtrax fleet-monitoring technology, which provides daily machine information through a secure website utilizing wireless technology. New features include energy-saving reports with tips for a more fuel-efficient operation, location, cautions, load ratio, maintenance alerts and a follow-up of the diesel particulate filter (DPF) status. All data is relayed to the web application for analysis.
