The Komatsu 855 makes it easy to deliver. With its power, nimbleness and smart solutions, the Komatsu 855 is a forwarder that offers you longterm productivity in all situations

  • Choose the right machine for the job with four load-capacity options
  • Drive high productivity with powerful cranes and rugged FlexBunks
  • Tackle the roughest terrain with powerful hydrostatic transmission and high ground clearance

Features and Benefits

  • Efficient loading: Match the machine to the job with a variety of load capacities — 12, 14, 16 or 20 metric tons — and several frame-length options. Designed for smooth and precise operation. Rugged cranes have a long reach and excellent lifting and slewing torque.
  • Smooth, fast transport: Maneuver with confidence in the most rugged forests, even when fully loaded. Chassis and suspensions are designed for performance under demanding conditions. Komatsu Comfort Bogie axles with a high portal offset and V-shaped frames provide some of the highest ground clearance in the industry.
  • Operator comfort: Operator comfort is key to your productivity. Spacious and open, our cab provides fantastic visibility, ergonomic controls and a seat that delivers all-day comfort. Optional Comfort Ride suspension provides added comfort and capabilities.
  • Powerful yet efficient: Maximize performance with high power and torque while driving efficiency with a fuel-efficient engine. A sophisticated control system automatically adapts to changes in engine load.
  • Technology-driven traction: Get exceptional tractive force thanks to an intelligent hydrostatic transmission system that considers machine load, terrain conditions, power and torque output. Hydraulic retarder overspeed protection on the 875-1 and 895-2 models ensures the driveline won't run too fast.
  • Customize your controls: Give operators the benefit of machine controls they can fine-tune for sensitivity and speed or smoothness and accuracy – whatever the job demands. Our state-of-the-art MaxiXplorer/MaxiXT system monitors and controls everything from engine and crane to the transmission and service ladders.
  • Easy to maintain: Less time servicing means more time forwarding. Maintenance is quickly and easily completed with a service-friendly design featuring an electronically powered tilting hood. All filters are located together for easy access under the hood.
  • Overcome climbing obstacles: When you need to do ground or stump leveling on tough terrain, an optional heavy-duty stacking blade is available. Mounted with a high angle of departure for climbing obstacles, there’s no interference between blade, battery boxes or hood guard.
  • Options for added benefit: Multiple options are available to enhance your productivity and comfort, including bunk wideners, rear- and front-view video cameras, computer touchscreen and electric fuel fill pump.
  • Cold weather starting: Don’t lose valuable time when the temperatures drop. A standard diesel heater system heats the engine coolant, hydraulic oil and the batteries to facilitate cold-weather starting on the 845-1, 855-3, 875-1 and 895-2.
