Komatsu Europe Launches D85EXi/PXi-18 Dozer

Komatsu Europe has introduced its new D85EXi/PXi-18 dozer, Komatsu’s latest in a range of machines equipped with intelligent Machine Control technology.

Powered by a 197 kW (264 HP), SAA6D125E-7, EU Stage IV emissions-certified engine with a “Heavy-duty” aftertreatment system, the D85EXi/PXi-18 emits up to 85% less particulate matter and nitrogen oxides (NOx) than a D85EX/PX-15.

This 11-liter diesel engine features a Komatsu Diesel Particulate Filter (KDPF) and a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system.

The D85EX/PX-18 uses an electronic control powertrain system that significantly improves operations and productivity. Powerful turns under various work conditions are achieved thanks to the Hydrostatic Steering System (HSS).

The D85EX-18 is also equipped with the SIGMADOZER® blade, which gives the machine a high blade capacity of 7,2 m³.

The SIGMADOZER® improves dozing performance and increases productivity by up to 15% over a conventional Semi-U blade. The blade features a frontal design concept adopted for digging and rolling material at the center of the blade.

Soil-holding capacity is increased and digging resistance reduced for a smoother flow of material.
