Ko­matsu For­est scores another “ton” with the Ko­matsu 895 For­warder

Australian Forests and Timber - - Forwarders -

Ko­matsu For­est re­cently scored another ton… its sec­ond cen­tury in For­warder sales in Aus­tralia. The first ton was scored by the 890.3, with the sec­ond cen­tury be­ing achieved in a lit­tle over four years. It’s cer­tainly a mile­stone to cel­e­brate and ce­ments Ko­matsu’s dom­i­nant po­si­tion in the Aus­tralian for­warder mar­ket.

The Ko­matsu 895 For­warder be­came a gi­ant in the forestry world of pro­fes­sional log­gers. With its 20-ton load ca­pac­ity, unique pow­er­train with 28.5-inch bo­gie and wheels, and one of the mar­ket’s larger for­warder load­ers, it is the pre­ferred choice for heavy fi­nal log­ging in the world’s largest forestry mar­kets of Swe­den/Nor­way, Canada, Brazil, Aus­tralia and Rus­sia. Ko­matsu For­est re­cently re­leased the “New Gen­er­a­tion 895” to fol­low on from the pre­vi­ous 895 with 11 units al­ready be­ing de­liv­ered into the Aus­tralia mar­ket. The new 895 has been fur­ther re­fined to im­prove pro­duc­tiv­ity with an in­creased bunk area and im­proved crane op­er­a­tion. The “New Gen­er­a­tion 895” pow­er­train sys­tem pro­vides far greater trac­tion with the trans­mis­sion be­ing fit­ted with a larger hy­dro­static pump and now all ex­ist­ing 895’s have been up­graded with the same trans­mis­sion which pro­vides im­proved con­trol and per­for­mance.

For the Euro­pean and North Amer­i­can mar­kets, this “New Gen­er­a­tion “895 is equipped with a new en­gine in­stal­la­tion with the lat­est in en­vi­ron­men­tal en­gi­neer­ing for diesel en­gines (Tier 4). In mar­kets like Aus­tralia the 895 will be still fit­ted with Tier II en­gine where the emis­sion con­trol sys­tem (SCR tech­nol­ogy) is deleted. Both en­gine vari­ants are com­bined with the new hy­draulic sys­tem which de­liv­ers low fuel con­sump­tion and a high power out­put at low en­gine speeds. The new en­gine pro­duces even more en­gine power and torque than the cur­rent Ko­matsu 895.
