Product Features and benefits:

Versatile Loading Capability

Choose the right machine for the job with load capacities ranging from 12 to 20 metric tons and various frame-length options. Designed for smooth and precise operation, these rugged cranes offer long reach and excellent lifting and slewing torque.

Efficient Transportation

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

Operator-Focused Comfort

Powerful and Fuel-Efficient

Maximize performance with high power and torque while ensuring fuel efficiency. A sophisticated control system automatically adapts to changes in engine load.

Technology-Driven Traction

Experience exceptional tractive force with an intelligent hydrostatic transmission system considering machine load, terrain conditions, power, and torque output. Hydraulic retarder overspeed protection on select models ensures driveline safety.

Customizable Controls

Empower operators with customizable machine controls for sensitivity, speed, or smoothness and accuracy, depending on the job requirements. The state-of-the-art MaxiXplorer/MaxiXT system monitors and controls various aspects, from the engine to the service ladders.

Ease of Maintenance

Save time on servicing with a service-friendly design featuring an electronically powered tilting hood. All filters are conveniently located under the hood for easy access.

Overcoming Obstacles

For ground or stump leveling on tough terrain, an optional heavy-duty stacking blade is available. Mounted with a high angle of departure, it ensures no interference between the blade, battery boxes, or hood guard.

Options for Enhanced Benefits

Choose from various 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 Solution

Ensure valuable time is not lost in cold temperatures. The standard diesel heater system heats the engine coolant, hydraulic oil, and batteries, facilitating cold-weather starting on select models.
