Rolling Meadows, IL April 3, 2007 â€”Komatsu America Corp. (KAC) announces the D61EX-15 and D61PX-15 crawler dozers designed for work in construction, site preparation, home building, forestry, utility and quarry applications. The SAA6D107E-1 engine with air-to-air after-cooler has a flywheel horsepower of 168 HP, is Tier 3 EPA emissions certified and machines range in operating weight from 36,840 to 41,250 lb depending on the model. Both standard (EX) and low ground pressure (PX) models are available to offer contractors maximum weight distribution/flotation options to match their application.
The D61EX/PX-15 is also equipped with the latest KomtraxTM technology, which sends machine operating information to a secure website utilizing wireless technology. Data such as operating hours, location, cautions and maintenance alerts are relayed to the web application for analysis. The Komtrax fleet monitoring system increases machine availability, reduces the risk of machine theft, allows for remote monitoring, and provides a wealth of other information to drive business efficiently and productively.
Special features of the D61EX/PX-15 include:
The new hexagonal shape of Komatsu™s dozer cab, designed with large, tinted glass windows, provides more room for the operator and expands front, side and rear visibility, for increased operator comfort. Internal air pressure and air filters prevent dust from entering the cab, and new cab damper mounts suppress noise and vibration when traveling over rough terrain. A newly designed, fully adjustable, high back suspension seat offers improved fore and aft sliding rails, while a new suspension spring provides increased strength and rigidity. An optional seat can adjust 15 degrees to the right for increased visibility during reverse operations.
The D61 features conveniently located maintenance points for quick and easy inspection and maintenance. Transmission and HSS oil filters, power train oil level gauges and the hydraulic tank all are arranged on the right side of the machine. Large opening gull-wing engine side doors provide quick and easy access to the engine and critical filters. These side doors consist of a thicker, more durable one-piece structure to protect critical components. Other items aiding in maintenance efficiency and machine durability include:
