KOMATSU ADDS ADVANCED JOYSTICK STEERING SYSTEM TO 24-TONNE WHEEL LOADER
Technological advancements continue apace at Komatsu with the news that its Advanced Joystick Steering System (AJSS) is now available as an option on its next generation 24-tonne WA475-10 wheel loader.
Designed to enhance versatility, manoeuvrability, productivity and forward visibility, the AJSS eliminates the steering wheel in favour of a single steering lever.
Komatsu’s latest WA475–10 wheel loader demonstrates Hydraulic Mechanical Transmission technology at France’s legendary Le Mans 24hrs race circuit.
With precise machine control and a proportional steering angle identical to the joystick up to a maximum driving speed of 38 km/h, the AJSS eliminates the need to counter-steer when completing a turn, reducing the number of movements required by the operator. In addition, without a steering wheel in the cab, forward visibility is improved and operator leg room is increased.
