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.

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.

Comfort Ride

Hydraulic cab suspension done right!

Komatsu’s hydraulic cab suspension is an innovation that produces suspension properties far beyond the norm. The design with optimised geometry, 4-point suspension and well-protected cylinders with long stroke effectively counteracts shocks, sway and vibrations. This improves comfort, reduces fatigue and contributes to an entirely new way of increasing productivity. With Komatsu Comfort Ride, you also get automatic level regulation, which superbly compensates for centre of gravity.
