Las Vegas, March 10, 2020 — Improved service access, reliability and durability means increased productivity for the Komatsu XT465L-5 feller buncher. Attendees at CONEXPO-CON/AGG can get a first-hand look at its new design features in Komatsu booth N-10825.
Built for ease of serviceability, a gull-wing style engine hood folds down, providing an elevated service work platform. Four additional service doors provide easy access. The innovative hydraulic tank design features two tanks, requiring 55% less total hydraulic oil.
Operator comfort and convenience are premium with a state-of-the-art cab, which has been relocated to the left of the boom. The design changes provide superior lines of sight to each track. The intuitive IQAN-MD4 digital control system puts machine control at the operator’s fingertips.
The rugged undercarriage significantly increases service life, including rugged, stronger track chain links that resist twist and longer-wear track roller and idler bushings. The new triple-labyrinth floating seal housings protect the final drive seals against mud packing.
Fuel consumption is up to 5% lower due to advanced engine and hydraulic system control designs with the 331 peak hp (247 kW) Cummins QSL9 9-liter engine. Lift capacity at full reach has been significantly increased and the XT465L-5 now readily operates the Quadco 24-inch (610 mm) cutting capacity disc saw heads.
