Ko­matsu har­vesters have been in the fore­front of pro­duc­tiv­ity en­hanc­ing tech­nolo­gies for decades; in ev­ery­thing from first thin­ning to small fi­nal felling, choos­ing a red har­vester will get you max­i­mized pro­duc­tiv­ity from day one. Ko­matsu For­est of­fers an im­pres­sive line-up of mar­ketlead­ing New Gen­er­a­tion har­vesters.

The New Gen­er­a­tion Ko­matsu 901, 911, 931 and 951 har­vesters all have the same mar­ket-lead­ing fea­tures but due to tree size and form only the larger mod­els 931 & 951 are im­ported into Australia.

Th­ese fea­tures in­cludes Ko­matsu’s in­no­va­tive, 3PS three-pump hy­draulic sys­tem, which pro­vides sig­nif­i­cantly higher hy­draulic work­ing flow at low en­gine speeds than other sys­tems, for greater pro­duc­tiv­ity and lower fuel con­sump­tion. This al­lows the op­er­a­tor to si­mul­ta­ne­ously slew, feed and ma­neu­vreer for in­creased pro­duc­tiv­ity. Th­ese hy­draulic sys­tem in­ter­ac­tions are all au­to­mat­i­cally con­trolled by Ko­matsu’s state-of-the-art Max­iX­plorer con­trol and in­for­ma­tion sys­tem.

Pro­duc­tiv­ity and op­er­a­tor com­fort is fur­ther en­hanced by Ko­matsu’s stan­dard 360° cab/crane ro­ta­tion and 4-way cab/ crane lev­el­ing sys­tems. The pow­er­ful par­al­lel cranes are fast and easy to op­er­ate. In com­bi­na­tion, th­ese fea­tures max­i­mize the size of the work­ing area, en­able har­vest­ing more trees per stop, and keep the op­er­a­tor level, with a clear and un­ob­structed view to the har­vest­ing head at all times.

The pow­er­ful, EPA Tier 4 Fi­nal cer­ti­fied en­gine ( Tier 2 for Aus­tralian mar­ket)fea­tures high torque backup, high ca­pac­ity cool­ing sys­tems, low noise level and re­duced fuel con­sump­tion.

A wide range of Ko­matsu har­vest­ing heads are avail­able to meet spe­cific ap­pli­ca­tion needs. The Ko­matsu C144 “car­rystyle” head, which has four pow­er­ful mo­tors and four heavy-duty driven feed rollers is ide­ally suited for the 931 & 951 with other op­tions be­ing Ko­matsu 132 & 172

The new mod­ern cab pro­vides op­er­a­tor com­fort and con­ve­nience with ex­cel­lent up­ward and downward, front line-of­sight vis­i­bil­ity. Six­teen (16) pow­er­ful LED work­ing lights pro­vide ex­cel­lent il­lu­mi­na­tion, for im­proved pro­duc­tiv­ity in low light


An air sus­pen­sion, air-vented seat, fully ad­justable er­gonomic arm­rests and hand con­trols, and an au­to­matic, 4-sea­son cli­mate con­trol sys­tem, keep the op­er­a­tor com­fort­able in all work­ing con­di­tions. The spa­cious cab has mul­ti­ple cov­ered and open stor­age ar­eas, in­clud­ing sep­a­rate heat­ing/ cool­ing boxes for food and bev­er­ages.

A deluxe, AM/FM/CD/ MP3 stereo sys­tem, with USB, Blue­tooth© and hands­free mi­cro­phone is stan­dard. The op­tional Me­di­aZone me­dia hub pro­vides the op­er­a­tor with an au­dio/me­dia sys­tem. The state-of-the-art Max­iX­plorer con­trol and in­for­ma­tion sys­tem has many ad­vanced soft­ware op­tions, for im­proved pro­duc­tiv­ity and re­port­ing.

Ko­matsu For­est Australia has had in­cred­i­ble suc­cess with the New Gen­er­a­tion 931 & 951 Har­vesters with a to­tal of seven­teen units de­liv­ered in Australia since its re­lease with an added high­light be­ing the new C144 har­vest­ing head
