Kawasaki’s 95Z7 wheel loader has been redesigned to meet EPA Tier 4 Interim emission standards, as well as to improve operating efficiency and productivity. The 388-horsepower machine is equipped with a 7.3-cubic-yard bucket and features a striking new appearance, with a hood design that improves rear visibility and serviceability. The 16-liter Isuzu 6WG1 diesel engine is the largest in the class. The big planetary automatic-shift transmission has automotive-style smooth shifting from pulse width modulation in the control valve and features a lock-up torque converter to improve fuel economy and performance. The machine’s IntelliTech System uses inputs from the machine to adjust performance to match the conditions. Many operations are automatic, while others allow the operator to select functions appropriate for the application or work environment. Diagnostic systems have been improved to allow more detailed data access to troubleshoot issues quickly and accurately. Serviceability has been improved with easy access to the engine, cooling system cores, and filters.
