Kawasaki’s 70TMV-2 Wheel Loader Offers MODM, ELS

Wed April 09, 2008 - National Edition

Kawasaki’s 70TMV-2 or TASKMaster, is the company’s new integrated tool carrier.

“It’s a size our customers requested,” said Gary Bell, vice president of Kawasaki Construction Machinery.

“In addition to being larger than our current 65TMV-2, the 70TMV-2 has numerous other new features designed to help equipment users be more productive and more efficient on the job.”

The new Tier III engine boosts both power and torque, yet is fuel-efficient. The 70TMV-2 also has a machine operations diagnostic module (MODM) that provides essential operational and diagnostic machine information, and offers a new efficient loading system (ELS) that increases rimpull power while demanding less fuel.

The unit uses a box-section frame design for additional strength, has a large center pin and has large tires for better flotation and stability. It also features an outboard brake system, typically found only on much larger wheel loaders. The 70TMV-2 gives enhanced dump clearance and breakout force as well.

Comfort features include increased leg room in the cab; standard air conditioning and a ride control option.
