Komatsu America introduced a new D65-17 dozer with a fuel efficient 205hp Tier 4 interim Komatsu SAA6D114E-5 engine.

Komatsu said the D65-17’s new autoshift transmission with lock-up torque converter reduces fuel consumption up to 10% over previous Tier 3 models.

Designed for heavy dozing and finishing operations, the D65-17’s next generation SIGMADOZER blade has a capacity of 7.34 cubic yards.

A new optional six-way power angle tilt (PAT) blade with a durable box structure C-frame provides precise grade cutting for site prep, golf course or house pad applications and is easily controlled by an in-cab toggle switch.

Komatsu’s new palm command control system (PCCS) gives operators maximum control, with thumb push buttons to simplify gear shifting. Hydraulic pilot controls offer excellent blade and ripper fine control.

Thelarger D65-17 ROPS cab is viscous mounted to reduce vibration and decrease operating noise. A new seven-inch color monitor displays machine information.

The D65-17 dozer features the parallel link undercarriage system (PLUS) with a rotary bushing system for easy maintenance and longer life.
