The wet disc brake is sealed with oil to block dust penetration, providing durable, water resistant and fade resistant characteristics. Smooth, stable braking provides “Productivity” and “Reliability” in demanding operation.
A Cooling System to achieve Increased Braking Stability
The oil in the wet disc brake system is circulated through the brake oil cooler. This mechanism ensures stable braking under a heavy work load and prevents deterioration of the braking force due to raised oil temperatures.
First-class Cycle TimeThe diesel models adopt a compact 3.3-liter engine with the advanced CLSS hydraulic system to achieve high productivity and a first class cycle time. The gasoline engine model also achieves a superior cycle.
*Komatsu tested data, Comparison with FD70-8 model. The results may vary depending on conditions.
Fully Hydrostatic Power Steering for Superb ManeuverThe FHPS (Fully Hydrostatic Power Steering) mechanism facilitates fully stationary steering as well as switchback operations using the small diameter steering wheel. The system has a superior response capability so that the operator can pick up or place cargo flexibly even in a narrow space. In addition, steering knob synchronizer function is available as an option.
TThe 8.0 model features a shorter wheelbase and swift mobility while maintaining the power and speed capable of achieving high productivity. The DX50 8.0 ton model is an ideal choice for confined spaces.
Rugged Design with High RigidityThe high rigidity mast, frame, front and rear axles ensure outstanding reliability even when performing heavy-duty work.
Improved Reliabilities for the Hydraulic and Electrical SystemsThe main hydraulic pipe connectors are face-sealed using O-rings. Waterproof connectors are provided to the main harnesses and the system controller in order to provide higher resistance to water and dust.
Engine Protection for Maintaining the Engine in Top ConditionThe electronic engine controls upgrade the performance of the engine protection (fail-safe functions).
