Komatsu 951XC

Productive final logging harvester with excellent climbing characteristics

Komatsu 951XC

Our largest eight-wheeled harvester is a stable and powerful machine, developed especially for harvesting in steep and challenging terrain. Hub reductions, the compact design and a large work area are just a few of the advantages.

Tailored to your working day

– Choose between two crane lengths: 8.7/10.3 m

– Several productive heads of different sizes to choose between, such as our popular and productive C164.

– The 951XC produces high tractive force for its size, enabling it to maintain a high speed even in difficult conditions

Optimised for final logging

Our final logging harvesters are designed to deliver high productivity shift after shift while still being agile for their size.

A powerful engine combined with high tractive force makes manoeuvring a breeze, even in difficult terrain. The bogie design with portals and integrated balance function help ensure good ground clearance and a high level of operator comfort. It also contributes to impressive performance in steep terrain and on soft ground alike.

Equipped with our strongest crane, it produces enough lifting force for you to work efficiently, even with our largest heads.

Working hydraulics you can depend on

3PS is our innovative hydraulic system that ensures you have the capacity to perform several operations at once – with maximum hydraulic power. For example, you can slew the crane, feed a log and manoeuvre the machine at the same time. If, instead, you are performing tasks that require less power, only parts of the system are used, meaning lower energy losses and thereby lower fuel consumption. An innovation that is good for your wallet, quite simply!

While 3PS is available on all our harvesters, it is particularly useful for final logging as you can perform several operations at the same time.

Low ground pressure and high stability

The XC machines are specially developed for logging in hilly terrain and on soft ground. Thanks to the 8-wheel design, our machines have a lower ground pressure, which makes them more gentle on the ground.

A factor that's also important when operating in demanding conditions is stability. Thanks to the Komatsu-concept, our harvesters have a design that contributes to making them among the most stable harvesters on the market. The XC machines take this one step further, with a double oscillating bogie on the rear frame, which makes sure the machine follows irregularities in the terrain in a smooth and forgiving manner while delivering excellent manoeuvrability in challenging terrain conditions.

The right head for every assignment

The choice of head always begins with the conditions faced in the forest. There are all kinds of trees, each of which poses different challenges requiring specialist solutions.

Our broad offering encompasses heads specially designed for particular types of forest and suitable for everything from initial thinning to final logging of the largest trees.

For the 951XC, you can choose between the following heads:
C124, S132, C144, S172, C164. For short reach: C202, C202E

Give your cab a finishing touch

The harvester cab has an ergonomic design with many added conveniences to help ensure job satisfaction. It can also be complemented with a wide range of extra equipment, should you want to tailor your workplace to suit your personal preferences. You can see a few of these options below, with more to be found in the brochure.

– Sequence control for both EME and mini joysticks
– Interior floor lighting and reading lamp on flexible arm
– Radio with Bluetooth and hands-free support
– Food box heater
– Cooler
– Sun shades
– Removable floor mat

By the way, did you know that the storage space in the panel behind the driver's seat can be used to cool bottles of drink? Ideal for keeping cool on hot days.

Hood guard two versions

Choose between two hood guards

To protect the engine hood from external impacts, we offer an optional hood guard that comes in two versions: standard and reinforced.

The reinforced hood guard attaches to the frame and is made of larger gauge piping than the standard version. This reinforced version can be separated in the middle, so when the engine hood is to be opened, the operator releases the sturdy catch and pivots the two halves of the hood guard outwards to either side.

When adding a standard or reinforced hood guard, the harvester can also be equipped with additional fire safety in the shape of two 9 kg fire extinguishers as well as a rake, a spade and a digging bar.

Smart Crane Harvesters

Crane operation at its easiest

For a harvester operator, an easily operated crane is important for ensuring a productive working day. With Komatsu Smart Crane, the crane – from the main boom all the way to the tip of the telescopic arm – is controlled with a single, smooth lever movement.

Thanks to the crane’s precision and responsiveness, the operator can easily steer the head where they want it, contributing to a more relaxed way of working. A relaxed operator can keep up a high and steady production during the day and still feel more refreshed at the end of the working day. Advantages that will be seen in both profitability and the operator’s well-being.


Leave nothing to chance

Smart Forestry gives you access to a collection of digital services that help make the workplace safe, smart, productive and sustainable - whether you have one or a hundred forest machines. You can keep track of your machines, collaborate with colleagues, and make wise decisions based on facts.

Smart Forestry consists of three different applications, making it easy for you to find the one that suits you and your business.

MaxiFleet Precision mindre

Smart Forestry Precision

Smart Forestry Precision uses the latest technology in satellite positioning to determine the machine’s position with an error margin of just a few centimetres. This paves the way for productive and smart work methods where the operator is provided with key information and support to enable informed decisions.

There are several useful functions within Precision, like the ability to create exact, digital fences to mark the borders of a work area or around protected areas. It's also easier to classify stems based on environmental considerations with the stem code visualisation tool.
