Although the D71PXi-24 is seen as the new "dozer on the block", it has the ability to work in all industries. The applications are endless, from lease building to stripping pipeline to road construction. Contact our Smart Construction team to see how this new dozer can make a powerful impact in your industry.


IMC 2.0 Dozers

Easily apply advanced automation technology to your job sites.

New IMC 2.0 dozers increase production up to 60% with the ability to use automatics from grass-to-grade.

  • Lift layer control uses the shape of the existing terrain to place lifts consistently with high accuracy, reducing compaction rework
  • Create a temporary design with quick surface creation
  • Tilt steering control automatically tilts blade to maintain straight travel during rough dozing and reduces track slip

Did You Know? Proactive dozing allows the operator to work with automation in all job phases, from the first pass to the last. Existing ground conditions at the tracks are continually collected, and with every pass, the new ground condition is updated to follow existing grade contours similar to an experienced operator.

IMC 2.0 Excavators

Work smarter from rough to finish grade

Intelligent Machine Control with automated tilting bucket feature allows smarter excavation from start to finish, removing over-excavation throughout the job.

  • Auto tilt control automatically tilts the bucket which greatly increases ease of operation on slope and ditch work
  • Protection + precision + performance = the formula for pursuing maximum productivity versus conventional machine guidance
  • Excavator automatics for trenching, slope work and high production applications

Common IMC Questions

Komatsu features deep integration, which provides harmony between the machine control system and the machine. All components are designed and installed from the factory as part of the machine and truly integrated.

When autos are engaged, the lift and tilt function of the dozer blade is controlled by the machine, allowing the operator to focus on material management.

When autos are engaged, if any part of the bucket comes in contact with the design surface, the work equipment automatically stops. As the operator pulls back on the arm, the boom will automatically raise. These features minimize over-excavation to the design surface.

3D GPS automatic dozers are used in many applications from mass excavation to finish grading.

Use semi-automatic excavators for trenching, slope work and high production applications.

With the auto grade assist function, the operator moves the arm, the boom adjusts the bucket height automatically, tracing the target surface and minimizing digging too deep. Auto grade assist allows the operator to perform rough digging without worrying about design surface, and to perform fine digging by operating the arm lever only. The working range is expanded by holding the lever to move the boom downward.

During boom or bucket operation, the work equipment automatically stops when the bucket edge reaches the design surface, thus preventing damage to the design surface. Bucket edge positioning is also made easy.

GPS machine control utilizes Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) to determine a machine's position. When used with design data, and computer assisted hydraulic control, a machine can automatically adjust its ground-engaging equipment to accurately cut the designed grade of a project without operator adjustments.

Machine control settings can be adjusted between presets to tailor the response to application and material conditions. From rough cut to finish grade and dry loose sandy soils to wet heavy clay materials, system performance can be targeted accordingly.

Flexibility is important for our customers, and our customers can adapt to the needs of a job. If the job requires high-precision engineered surfaces, we can import these complex surfaces. If the job only requires a simple surface, it may be possible to create your design surface right inside the cab of the machine.

Cab top GNSS antenna allows for accurate as-built surface data collection by measuring actual elevations as machine continuously tracks in operation. Measure progress in real-time with operator selectable settings.
