С технической точки зрения

Обзор технических достижений лесных машин Komatsu

В Komatsu Forest учитывали эргономику как очень важный параметр уже с начала 1960х годов. В результате, лесные машины Komatsu далеко впереди по обеспечению высокой производительности и эргономичной рабочей среде для оператора. Мы собрали информацию по всем вопросам безопасности и эргономическим особенностям, которые сейчас внедрены в наших харвестерах и форвардерах.

Харвестеры

Komatsu hand control

Work posture

  • One of the market's most ergonomic forestry seats as an option.
  • Seat with sturdy side support for the thighs and back.
  • Seat with extended backrest and comfortable neck support.
  • Seat with electrical controls and many adjustment options for optimally adapted seat adjustment.
  • Ample space lengthwise that enables the seat to be adjusted forward and backward.
  • Spacious cab that eliminates the cramped feeling experienced in smaller cabs.
  • Full standing height for a person of normal height in front of the seat, which provides opportunities for micro-breaks inside the cab.
  • Ample legroom for varied sitting postures forward-backward during full-circle rotation.
  • Hand controller with shaped hand support for reduced strain on hands and wrists, as well as relaxed crane manoeuvring.
  • Shaped armrests with multiple joints with adjustments that reduce arm strain. Lateral supports that can be adjusted/adapted for each operator.
  • Sturdy handles for bracing yourself when operating over uneven terrain.
  • Hand controllers solidly constructed so that you can brace yourself when operating over minor unevenness in the terrain.
  • Hand controller with shaped buttons, guide strips and backlighting for easier access to the right button.
  • Hand controller with buttons that can be moved in the control system to improve ergonomics for the most common buttons. Most of the buttons are accessible on the hand controller, even most of those that were previously on the instrument panel.
  • Autolev function on both cab and crane that creates a unique horizontal work environment.
  • Off-road steering with the hand in the crane lever for increased hand comfort.
  • Wireless keypad/mouse function with ergonomic design that can be used with a comfortable work posture.
  • Vertical floor pedal with restful support for the foot.
