Komatsu's exclusive SIGMADOZER blade has a unique shape to reduce digging resistance while providing smooth material roll up thereby increasing production by up to 15 % over a similar sized Semi-U blade.
The SIGMADOZER blade power pitch function allows the operator to adjust the blade rearward for normal dig and carry and forward for more aggressive dig and dump.
The Auto-shift Transmission increases dozing speed while reducing fuel consumption by up to 5% and the hydrostatic steering system maintains power to both tracks during turns.
Manual shift transmission can be selected with a toggle switch for applications such as ripping.
The D85PX-18 with straight tilt blade has wide 36" track shoes and long track-on-ground to provide floatation in soft ground conditions.
