Komatsu America Corp. introduces the new D65PXi-18

Komatsu America Corp., has introduced the new D65PXi-18, the latest addition to its next generation of intelligent machine control and dozer technology.

The long track, low ground pressure D65PXi-18 excels in soft or wet conditions and offers exceptional stability for finish grading applications. It features a stronger, 217-horsepower, SAA6D114E-6, EPA Tier 4 Final emissions certified engine . Komatsu claims that its engine solution is environmentally friendly and provides high levels of performance while reducing fuel consumption and operating costs.

“From first to last pass – rough cut to finish grade – the machine senses blade load, minimizes track slip and ensures operators get the most from every push,” said Jason Anetsberger, Komatsu product manager. “We believe the difference in dozing efficiency between conventional machine operation and intelligent machine control technology is exceptional,” Anetsberger said.

The D65PXi-18 intelligent machine control system allows automated operation from heavy dozing to fine grading, achieving up to 8% greater efficiency in moving material, based on start-to-finish grade testing of typical aftermarket machine control systems. The lack of blade mounted sensors and components means there is no need for operators to climb on the blade to install/remove GNSS antennas, no coiled cables to snag and no electrical connections to slow the start and end of every shift.
