The crane has a long reach and a high net lifting force, a reliable pillar and hose routing solution and a Combi outer boom. Tiltable crane pillar (option) for efficient loading in steep terrain.
With the 855, you get the market’s most modern control system – MaxiXplorer. MaxiFleet, the world’s first fleet management system for forestry machines, is available as an option.
Now maybe, the most "good-looking" forwarder in the business. New softer design on hoods transforms this forwarder to a beauty.
Superb manoeuvrability and stability
Together, the traction and Komatsu Comfort Bogie provide superb manoeuvrability and stability. A smart boogie lift is also available as an option.
ProTec is standard on all Komatsu Forwarders and provides you with a completely protected hose passage between the crane tip and grapple, new braking technology that effectively dampens grapple swing, and a specially designed rotator. ProTec reduces service, spare part, oil, and cleaning costs. ProTec is also environmentally-friendly – greatly reduced oil leakage reduces environmental impact.
The stock traction force of 187 kN makes for a strong forwarder and the unique interaction between engine, control system and transmission makes it particularly manoeuvrable in all situations. The Komatsu 855 provides its highest torque at low engine speeds and automatically adapts to changes in engine load due to terrain, obstacles and inclines. The result is maximized productivity and benefit from every ounce of horsepower and every gallon of fuel.
Powerful yet fuel effective engine
The powerful Stage IV Final engine with SCR technology can handle heavy loads and low engine speeds. Based on well-proven common rail technology with high fuel injection pressure and injection control that is both rapid and more precise, it delivers high engine power, high torque, lower emissions and low fuel consumption. Add to this the fact that the engine has optimized combustion chambers and the result is an engine with maximised combustion efficiency when power is most needed.
Flexible bunk with high load capacity
The Komatsu 855 has a large bunk characterised by its flexibility and many options. One is FlexGate, the gate that improves visibility and flexes out of the way if struck by the crane. This simplifies loading and minimises the risk of machine damage. Another is FlexBunk, which with its hydraulic height-adjustable stakes and option to widen the bunk provides a high load capacity.
Easy to maintain
Service and maintenance are quickly and easily conducted. All daily service can be performed from ground level via easily accessible service hatches and the dipsticks are quickly and easily checked. The engine hood is electrically powered and the filters are strategically located together for easy access under the hood. The forwarder has many conveniently located service
Excellent operator environment
The cab is spacious with plenty of legroom and numerous storage solutions. The large windows offer fantastic visibility upwards, downwards and to the sides and make crane operation easier and more relaxed. The cab has a low noise level and a driver’s seat that offers superb comfort and a large working range. Naturally, Comfort Ride cab suspension is available as an option.
