COMPACT CONSTRUCTION – KOMATSU
Komatsu mini-excavators share many of the features of Komatsu’s mid-size excavators. But more importantly, these mini’s are constructed like their bigger brothers to handle the demands of construction work rather than the light duty some of the competition is designed for. Climb on one of these mini’s and you’ll fall in love with the comfort, big excavator features, versatility and especially the work they can produce. You’ll find that mini refers only to their size not what they can achieve.
Hydrostatic drive sets these machines apart. By replacing the torque converter and geared transmission with a hydrostatic system using one piston pump and two piston motors, Komatsu small wheel loaders are quick but smooth, powerful but extremely operator friendly and controllable. The operator can use his traction control system to adjust the traction output to match his underfoot and digging conditions. In addition, dynamic braking slows the loader whenever the operator lifts his foot off the throttle making it easy on the wet multi-disc brakes.
