Tue September 16, 2008 - National Edition

Kawasaki has developed a waste and recycling package for its wheel loader line specifically for the waste and recycling industry.

“We have worked closely with customers in this demanding application and developed options that make Kawasaki wheel loaders a very productive, safe and economical machine to operate in this environment,” stated Gary Bell, vice president and general manager.

The waste and recycling package features special guarding options, cab filtration options, safety options, automatic reversible cooling fan, autolube system, wide fin radiator and hydraulic options.

Kawasaki wheel loaders are engineered with features that allow the operator to customize and adapt to their environment and application, including limited slip differentials, adjustable declutch, variable boom kickout, idle management system, dual mode engine switch, efficient loading system (ELS), power mode switch and ride control.

The cab has been designed to offer an efficient and comfortable work area which includes standard air conditioning, standard air ride seat, optional ride control, single lever control and the K-Lever (joystick option).

Features such as the outboard-mounted, sealed wet disc brakes are designed for long life and easy access and overhaul. Spin-on filters, grouped grease fittings, sealed universal joints, all provide easy field maintenance.

The new MODM (Machine Operation Diagnostic Module) provides essential operational and diagnostic information in an easy-to-read LCD display. The optional K-LINK system allows location, system alarm sensors and all major machine performance data to be electronically transmitted to cell phones, fax and e-mail for real-time equipment management.
