Proportional Pressure Control (PPC) joystick levers. The left hand joystick controls the travel, the right joystick controls the loader equipment. The PPC foot pedal controls the auxiliary hydraulic circuit for attachments. Control levers are inoperative when the operator arm rest bar is raised or the operator is not seated.
Control pattern change valve is optional equipment. The optional control pattern splits the travel and the loader controls between both joystick levers.
Easy to use Travel and Loader PPC Joysticks -
Low effort Proportional Pressure Control (PPC) joysticks operate travel and
loader operations. Easy to use PPC controls help operators of all skill levels
work precisely and efficiently all day long – with minimum effort and
reduced operator fatigue.
Maximum Performance and
Precise Control with HydrauMind™ -
Komatsu’s smooth and precise HydrauMind™ system lets
the operator feel the performance of the machine. The
Closed Load Sensing System (CLSS) hydraulics are
designed for both single and simultaneous movements
which achieves unsurpassed control in positioning the
Standard Universal Attachment
Quick Coupler -
A universal quick coupler enables common
attachments to be changed quickly and with little
effort. Auxiliary hydraulics with flat faced connectors
are standard. Most competitors’ attachments can be
utilized on Komatsu’s skid steer loaders.
Two-Speed Travel -
This Komatsu exclusive, in this size class, allows
for low impact shift-on-the-go speed changes
between 6.5 MPH / 10.5 kph work range and
10 MPH / 16 kph travel range. Improves load and
carry cycle times and travel times between job
Low Effort and Fine Hydraulic Control - The 80 ltr/min 21 GPM auxiliary hydraulics can be metered from 3.7 to 80 ltr/min.1 to 21 GPM or locked into continuous flow and the PPC pedal control results in low effort and fine control.
Long Wheel Base - The Komatsu SK1020 skid steer loader has one of the longest wheel bases in its class, 45.7" / 1160 mm , giving the operator a more stable ride and a better platform for operating high flow attachments.
Automatic Power Control "APC" - Patented Komatsu anti-stall hydraulic system designed to allow full utilization of engine power. The operator can work with full engine power during the toughest job site applications without worrying about engine stall.
Outstanding Visibility - Work with confidence and increased productivity. The standard top and rear shatter resistant windows, large side screen area as well as a superior view of
the bucket, cutting edge and corners give the
operator excellent 360° job site visibility.
Optional "Super Flow"
Auxiliary Hydraulics -
The optional “Super Flow” auxiliary hydraulic
circuit enables the SK1020 to utilize many high
flow attachments. Cold planers, stump grinders,
flail mowers and other attachments can be easily
operated with the PPC joysticks.
Intelligent Operator Controls
Komatsu has enhanced operator productivity and efficiency
with their technologically advanced operator restraint bar.
The operator restraint bar incorporates a LCD gauge panel
and warning light system which is easily engaged and acts
as a forearm rest. In addition, a Loader Arm Float Function
control can be engaged on the joystick for enhanced back
dragging or attachment applications.
Enhanced Loader Arm and
Bucket Control -
The hydraulic self leveling (up only) bucket with
5,038 lb / 2290 kg breakout force enhances the
productivity of the operator on the job site. The
45° dump and 30° rollback angles of the bucket
allow for a faster dump cycle and load retention over rough terrain.
