Komatsu motor grader GD555-5
The Perfect Fit for the Jobsite
Most of motor grader applications requires accuracy and versatility. For that, motor graders should be easy to operate in any situations of work. To realize this ease of operation, Komatsu Dash 5 Series Motor Graders are totally improved from overview design down to each element. Our design philosophy contributes to our motor graders fitting in every jobsites from road construction to snow removal, and brings more productivity to every operators from beginner to expert.
Get More Versatility
Komatsu GD555-5 attempts to get more versatility in the middle class graders which are used in various jobsites. With variety of work equipments and stretched wheelbase that is easier to accommodate longer blade, all elements are enhance job efficiency. Moreover, the torque converter transmission provides easy control, resulting in more precise operation in any application.
Long Wheelbase & Short Turning Radius
The long wheelbase enables high leveling performance with a long blade and easier to set the blade position. Long wheelbase also contributes to expanding blade reach in combination with large articulation angle. Additionally the minimum turning radius still short with wide steering angle, serves high maneuverability.
Optimized Hydraulic & Cooling System
Komatsu Multifunctional Control Valve with Closed Load Sensing System (CLSS) Hydraulic System enable the constant cylinder speed, excellent multifunctional operation ability and fine control.
Low operating effort
Implement controls are designed to reduce operator fatigue. They feature short lever throws and effort in both directions. Properly spaced control levers and short lever throws allow the operator to use multiple controls with one hand.
When the operator uses several controls at the same time, flow is proportional to ensure several implements can operate simultaneously.
Constant implement speed
Implement speed is constant regardless of engine speed because of the large pump output and proportional flow control function.
Power on demand
Normally, the variable displacement pump idles at low output. When it senses a load requirement, the pump supplies quick flow and pressure to match the demand. The result is less hydraulic system heat, quick response and lower fuel consumption.
Hydraulic cooling fan
The newly designed cooling fan eliminates excessive cooling capacity by controlling air flow rate according to work load.
Outstanding Power Transmitting System
Komatsu motor grader GD555-5 features Lock-up Torque Converter Transmission for pursuing ease of operation. This unique system provides both efficiency of direct drive and controllability of Torque Converter drive. With this outstanding power transmitting system, the GD555-5 delivers advanced productivity in any applications from fine grading to heavy grading.
Torque Converter Features
- Eliminates engine stalling and inching pedal operation.
- Smooth starting, good controllability in fine grading
- Easy travelling, automatic gear shifting.
- Reduce excessive tire slipping
- Multiply over twice torque, provides much torque in heavy grading, ditching and ripping
- Stable engine speed, reduce shift changing during road maintenance and snow removal
- Prevents loss of efficiency
Transmission Mode Selection
There is two transmission mode to enhance productivity. With the push of a button, transmission mode is selected to fit in working condition and preference of operators.
Drive with Torque Converter in all shift position. This mode maximizes Torque Converter benefits. Lock-up will works in F5-F8 and R3-R4 position. Shifting F8 position serves automatic shifting through F4-F8 in responsible to machine speed
Works like a same way as conventional power shift, by engaging lock up clutch with all gears. This mode maximizes efficiency of direct shifting. In reverse travelling, works same way as Auto mode, serves less shift lever operation frequency.
Prevents engine stalling while Lock up by automatically disengaging the lock up clutch and shifting to torque converter state. Torque converter provides much torque to continue to work as it is, never needs to restart the engine and shift the gear.
Torque converter transmission introduces Creep Mode which provides constant low speed without acceleration and brake control. Optimized machine speed and great stability of torque converter boosts up precise control during fine grading.
Power Train Protection
Electronic Over-Speed Protection Prevents downshifting until reducing the travel speed to the safe range of shift changing. FR Inhibitor restricts excessive shuttle shifting at high traveling speed.
Reduce Shift Shock for Driving Comfort
Torque Converter allows to absorb torque fluctuation of the engine. Even in shifting the gear during Lock up, torque converter temporally absorb shift shock and contributes high driving comfort.
Excellent visibility by hexangular cab with front Y shape pillar and rear layout side pillar boost operator’s confidence and productivity in all grader applications. Well-positioned blade linkage provides an unobstructed view of the moldboard and front tires. The tapered engine hood provides good visibility to the rear of the machine, especially the rear ripper.
Low profile cab is designed to ensure ROPS/FOPS (ISO 3471/ISO 3449) certification
New hydraulically driven fan and redesigned layout of the cooling system achieve a low noise level.
Operator’s ear dynamic noise level (ISO6396) 74dB (A)
The suspension, fabric covered seat which is adjustable to the operator’s weight is provided as standard. The suspension seat dampens vibrations transmitted from the machine and reduces operator fatigue. The seat features fold-up armrests and a retractable seat belt.
Electric throttle control
The RPM mode select switch allows the operator to perfectly match the working condition by selecting between three modes: Auto, Off and Manual. The engine speed set by throttle switch is temporarily cancelled when operating the brake/acceleration pedal at Auto mode
The cab includes built-in storage space for personal items such as a lunch box, coffee cup, and a coat hook.
Well-positioned air conditioning vents keep the operator comfortable through a wide range of outside conditions.
Adopted DC 12 V electrical outlet (Optional)
12 V DC outlets is included in the operator’s cab.
Adjustable control console
The control console is adjustable backward and forward to facilitate entry and exit from the cab. The steering wheel also tilts to the operators preference.
Machine Monitoring System
The machine monitor displays various machine information and allows for various settings of the machine. Displays maintenance information, operation records, etc. By using the switch panel, you can display various user menus on the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) unit screen and perform the settings of the machine.
Clear character display
During normal operation, the service meter/odometer is displayed in this area. If an abnormality or machine overload occurs, or if machine maintenance and inspection are required, action codes appear on the display to allow the operator to take appropriate action
Easy Maintenance Design
Accessibility to service areas
