Boost productivity in thinning and light clear-cutting operations with the 12-metric-ton class 845-1 forwarder. Experience exceptional maneuverability and fuel efficiency, making it an ideal choice for demanding tasks. The hydraulic retarder overspeed protection feature guarantees that the driveline operates within safe speed limits.

Key highlights include:

  • Tailor the machine to your needs with four load-capacity options, ensuring the right fit for the job.
  • Enhance productivity with powerful cranes and robust FlexBunks, designed for efficient material handling.
  • Conquer challenging terrains effortlessly using the potent hydrostatic transmission and achieving high ground clearance.

Product Features and Benefits:

Versatile Loading Capability: Tailor the machine to your specific job requirements with multiple load capacities – 12, 14, 16, or 20 metric tons – and various frame-length options. Engineered for smooth and precise operations, the rugged cranes boast extended reach and impressive lifting and slewing torque.

Efficient Transport in Challenging Terrain: Navigate confidently through rugged forests, even when fully loaded, with chassis and suspensions designed for peak performance in demanding conditions. Komatsu Comfort Bogie axles, featuring a high portal offset and V-shaped frames, provide industry-leading ground clearance.

Operator-Centric Comfort: Prioritize operator comfort for enhanced productivity. The spacious and open cab ensures excellent visibility, while ergonomic controls and a comfortable seat contribute to all-day comfort. Optional Comfort Ride suspension adds further comfort and capabilities.

Powerful and Fuel-Efficient Performance: Maximize performance with high power and torque, coupled with fuel efficiency from a sophisticated control system that automatically adjusts to changes in engine load.

Technology-Driven Traction: Benefit from exceptional tractive force with an intelligent hydrostatic transmission system that considers machine load, terrain conditions, power, and torque output. Hydraulic retarder overspeed protection on the 875-1 and 895-2 models ensures optimal driveline performance.

Customizable Controls: Empower operators with customizable machine controls, allowing fine-tuning for sensitivity, speed, smoothness, or accuracy based on job requirements. The MaxiXplorer/MaxiXT system monitors and controls everything from engine and crane to transmission and service ladders.

Effortless Maintenance: Minimize downtime with a service-friendly design featuring an electronically powered tilting hood for quick and easy maintenance. All filters are conveniently located together under the hood for easy access.

Obstacle Overcoming Capability: For ground or stump leveling on challenging terrains, an optional heavy-duty stacking blade with a high angle of departure is available. This configuration ensures no interference between the blade, battery boxes, or hood guard.

Enhancements for Productivity and Comfort: Explore multiple options to boost productivity and comfort, including bunk wideners, rear- and front-view video cameras, computer touchscreen, and an electric fuel fill pump.

Cold Weather Starting Assurance: Ensure no loss of valuable time in cold temperatures with a standard diesel heater system that warms the engine coolant, hydraulic oil, and batteries, facilitating easy cold-weather starting on the 845-1, 855-3, 875-1, and 895-2 models.
