The machines also benefit from new features such as smart safety initiatives, better travel performance and controllability, ease of servicing and a proven Komatsu aftertreatment system.

The new engines in both the PW148-11 and PW158-11 deliver 20kW more power than the units fitted to Komatsu’s previous models, while a Komatsu diesel particle filter is fitted as standard. Higher productivity combined with lower fuel consumption and faster uphill travel speed are claimed.

Other improvements include the option to fit a tilt rotator, a more ergonomic steering wheel, an automatic digging brake option, and an improved premium air-suspended operator seat with integrated joystick consoles.

The machines are offered as standard with the Komtrax machine and fleet monitoring management and the Komatsu Care maintenance programme.
