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, good visibility in all directions, smart screen placement and remote control/key for controlling the main circuit breaker and 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 the ultimate 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. This unique bogie with twin suspension systems provides a good balance between performance on soft ground and excellent manoeuvrability in steep terrain.

Improved off road manoeuvrability

Improved off-road manoeuvrability with higher ground clearance, greater tractive force and improved power steering.
