Options Forwarder

Extra increased productivity

Allready a standard equipped Komatsu forwarder delivers high productivity. In order to further increase the productivity a number of options can be added to the machine. Below is a selection of our most popular productivity-enhancing options.

Comfort Ride 2021

Comfort Ride

The next generation of Komatsu Comfort Ride is here

A forwarder operator spends many hours a day in the cab, making a pleasant and comfortable work environment extremely important. Komatsu Comfort Ride efficiently dampens jolts and vibrations, ensuring an ergonomic work environment. This in turn contributes to higher productivity and better profitability.

The new generation of Komatsu Comfort Ride comes with comfort-enhancing features like adjustable sideways firmness and automatic side levelling at standstill and at low speed. The elevated unloading mode now also works at low speed, to make it smoother to reposition the forwarder at the landing. Great news for all forwarder operators!

SpeedShift

Boost your profitability

SpeedShift is a smart gearbox solution with dual hydrostatic motors, with the forwarder automatically changing up a gear as the operator increases speed. This enables the machine to accelerate continuously within the full speed range without any additional operator intervention. In this way, the engine can work at optimal engine speed most of the time, which saves fuel and provides a quiet and more comfortable work environment. The automatic gear changes enable increased transport speed where ground conditions allow. This can include, for example, relatively flat access roads in otherwise hilly terrain that can be covered at faster speed. The longer the forwarding roads, the greater the benefit offered by SpeedShift.
