That’s just one of many reasons the D61-24 is a standout choice for any grading or earthmoving application, noted Jonathan Tolomeo, Komatsu product marketing manager for crawler dozers. The D61-24 provides three work modes. In addition to the Economy mode and Power mode, operators can select the H mode (or high engine idle speed mode), which helps to maintain ground speed when the blade has a heavy load and allows the dozer to detect subtle changes in load. The dozer also has a 20-speed customizable transmission mode to suit the operator’s personal preferences. “The D61-24 is excellent for finish grading” on projects ranging from highway construction to site prep for subdivi- sions or golf courses, Tolomeo said. “Customers frequently comment how powerful and well-balanced the D61 is, especially on steep slopes. It also has the horsepower and blade capacity for heavy dozing, if required. In fact, the D61 has more horsepower than any competitive dozer in its size class.” The D61-24 is equipped with a 6.8-liter, 168-hp engine that meets Tier 4 Final requirements. The new engine improves fuel efficiency, and the new Auto Idle Shutdown feature also reduces fuel consumption by lim- iting idling to an easily programmed amount of time. The dozer offers improved visibility to the blade and to the rear, thanks to Komatsu’s new super-slant nose design and a standard rearview camera. With better visibility front and rear, operators have better machine control, resulting in higher productivity and more efficient operation. For ease of maintenance, the dozer includes a swing-up fan that provides easy access to the side-by-side radiator, oil cooler and charge air cooler. Daily maintenance checks are also convenient. If you’re looking for a dozer that offers high-productivity features and low ownership costs, you should look at the D61.
