Advantages in difficult terrain

The Komatsu 901XC makes light work of inclines and difficult terrain. One important reason for this is the impressive starting tractive force and the unique interaction between the engine, control system and power transmission. The hydrostatic, power-optimised transmission enables engine power to be fully utilised, providing excellent climbing ability and considerable advantages in difficult terrain. Several preset and task-specific driving modes enable you to maximize productivity and benefit from every ounce of horsepower and every litre of diesel.

Excellent operator environment

The levelling system keeps the cab horizontal, which means you're always sitting comfortably and relaxed. The operator environment is unique in several other ways as well. Large cab volume, excellent visibility, smart placement of the screen for maximum visibility and remote control/key for controlling the electrical switch on and off, controlling lights, central locking of the cab and controlling the diesel heater. Floor heating, effective lighting and three joystick alternatives - including EME - to choose between make for a comfortable cab. Add the optional Autolev Advanced cab damping for improved operator comfort.

Unique pressure and flow optimisation

The 901XC features Komatsu's unique 3-pump hydraulics. The unique pressure and flow optimisation enables you to work significantly faster as the 3-pump hydraulics allow you to use several crane and head functions simultaneously with maximum hydraulic power, such as slewing the crane, feeding a log and manoeuvring the machine, with optimally low fuel consumption.

The most stable harvester

Komatsu's eight-wheeled harvesters are the most stable thanks to a concept that combines technologies both old and new. It's based on the tried and tested concept of a rigid articulated joint and a swing axle working together with the cab's tilt cylinders. On the 901XC, the swing axle is paired up with Komatsu Comfort Bogie, lowering the machine's centre of gravity and increasing ground contact. The combination of a double oscillating bogie and the well-proven Komatsu concept makes the Komatsu 901XC the most stable harvester on the market.

Powerful engine

The Komatsu 901XC has a powerful engine producing 170 kW at 1,900 rpm and 950 Nm of torque at 1,500 rpm. Naturally, the engine fulfils the requirements of EU Stage IV/EPA Tier 4 Final, which means minimised emissions of environmentally hazardous particles and nitrogen oxides, as well as reduced fuel consumption. Thanks to its intelligent variable fan control, noise levels are low without compromising engine power
