Bulldozer with an integrated, intelligent machine control system

The D61PXi-24 from Komatsu is a dozer, but a dozer with an integrated, intelligent machine control system. The intelligent thing about the machine control system is that it not only controls the blade, it also includes slip control. This means that the inclination and height of the blade are controlled, but the loading of the blade is also monitored. If the load becomes too heavy, causing slippage on the tracks, the blade is raised slightly to keep the machine moving.

As a result, it is much easier and more relaxed for the driver to control the machine. The rider does not have to be an absolute professional to operate the machine. Even a young or less experienced rider can achieve top performance with such a machine.

Machine control system controls blade, chain slip and links machine and terrain data

The machine control system is therefore intelligent because it not only controls the blade but also the track slip and links machine data and terrain data to make the control system complete. An exciting and very innovative machine.
