The new operator seat is equipped with lumbar support, a tilting adjust function and electric heater. It is easy to adjust to the operator's shape and various working conditions and provides comfortable operation. The standard heated seat makes it possible to work comfortably in the winter.

Located at the right side of the fuel tank and is accessible from ground level. A convenient sight gauge is also provided.

This new system combines a Komatsu Diesel Particulate Filter (KDPF) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). The SCR NOx reduction system injects the correct amount of DEF at the proper rate, thereby transforming NOx into non-toxic water (H2O) and nitrogen gas (N2).

The D85EXi-18 has a strong integrated ROPS cab. High rigidity and superb sealing sharply reduce noise and vibration for the operator and minimizes dust that enters the cab. This provides the operator a comfortable working environment. Also, there is more side visibility because an additional external ROPS structure and posts are not required.

Chassis mounted IMU+ and intelligent logic enables accurate grading performance without blade mounted sensors.

A standard battery disconnect switch allows a technician to disconnect the power supply before servicing the machine.

No blade mounted GNSS antenna(s), cables to worry about damaging with cab top GNSS antenna. Reduced risk of theft due to low visibility as viewed from ground level. 

Komatsu auto idle shutdown automatically shuts the engine down after idling temporarily to reduce unnecessary fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. The amount of time before the engine is shutdown can be easily programmed from 5 to 60 minutes.

The KVGT system features proven Komatsu design hydraulic technology for variable control of air-flow and supplies optimal air according to load conditions. The upgraded version provides better exhaust temperature management.

The new D85EXi-18 is both productive and fuel efficient with the SIGMADOZER® blade, automatic transmission and new Tier 4 Final engine. The SIGMADOZER® blade, based on completely new digging theory, dramatically increases production. This bulldozer significantly improves fuel efficiency compared to a conventional model.

The Komatsu SAA6D125E-7 engine is EPA Tier 4 Final emissions certified and provides exceptional performance while reducing fuel consumption. Based on Komatsu proprietary technologies developed over many years, this new diesel engine lowers nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) by more than 90%, compared to Tier 3 levels. Through the in-house development and production of engines, electronics, and hydraulic components, Komatsu has achieved great advancements in technology, providing high levels of performance and efficiency in virtually all conditions.

Komatsu's new PLUS provides less downtime, plus longer wear with up to 40% lower undercarriage maintenance costs. Rotating bushings eliminate the cost and downtime for bushing turns, and strengthened rollers and links increase wear life up to two times. With PLUS, individual links can be replaced with common track tools.

The operator can view directly behind the machine on the color monitor panel.

Robust stroke sensing hydraulic cylinders employ proven Komatsu sensor technologies for accurate finish grade performance. Stroke sensing angle cylinder allows machine control system to know the angle of the blade.
