Komatsu D71EXi-24 Dozer


Komatsu has released its D71EXi/PXi-24 dozer line – a new class of hydrostatic dozer for the company – that combines iMC 2.0 (intelligent Machine Control) enhancements and Tier 4 Final emissions technology to deliver industry-leading levels of performance, versatility and low operating cost.

In the same size class as its popular D65EX-18 dozer, the 23 tonne D71EXi-24 (also available in swamp dozer configuration as the D71PXi-24) is the largest hydrostatic drive dozer on the market to incorporate iMC capabilities.

It is also one of the first machines to feature Komatsu’s just-released iMC 2.0, a significant update that delivers major productivity, efficiency and cost saving advantages to its latest model “intelligent” dozers. 

Power for the new dozer comes from a Komatsu SAA6D114E-6 Tier 4 Final-compliant engine rated at 179 kW, through a fully hydrostatic transmission.

According to Komatsu Dozers Product Manager Pat Munro, the move to hydrostatic drive has allowed for a significant redesign of the D71EXi/PXi-24, making it more versatile, productive, manoeuvrable, and with unmatched visibility to the blade edges.

“While it’s in the same size class as our D65 series dozers, moving to hydrostatic has allowed us to adopt a cab-forward design. This, combined with our ‘super-slant’ nose design, gives incredible visibility to the work area,” Pat says.
