KCMA Corporation, the marketer for Kawasaki wheel loaders in North America, recently introduced the all-new 95Z7 wheel loader. This machine is completely redesigned to meet all EPA Tier 4i emission standards as well as to improve operating efficiency and productivity. It is powered by 388 net horsepower diesel engine and equipped with a 7.3 cubic yard General Purpose bucket.
The most apparent change to the 95Z7 is the overall appearance. Striking new styling sets this machine apart. These styling changes are functional as well as aesthetic. The hood design improves rear visibility and serviceability.
The powertrain for the 95Z7 provides power and durability. The reliable and fuel efficient Isuzu 6WG1 diesel meets all Tier 4i emission standards with the use of Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation and Diesel Particulate Filter or Exhaust Filter systems.
This 16-liter engine is the largest in the class, providing excellent reserve capacity. The big planetary automatic‐shift transmission has automotive‐style smooth shifting from pulse width modulation in the control valve. This transmission also has standard Lock‐up Torque Converter to improve fuel economy and performance. Plus the 95Z7 has standard Traction Control and Torque Proportioning Differentials to reduce wheel spin and extend tire life. The service brakes are mid‐mounted for high capacity and cool operation and the final drives are outboard mounted for easy access.
The totally redesigned hydraulic system uses reliable, high performance Kawasaki variable displacement piston pumps that improve fuel efficiency. The operator station is roomy and provides excellent visibility, controllability and comfort to optimize productivity.
Like all Kawasaki Z7 series loaders, the 95Z7 has many new features to allow the machine to be operated at peak efficiency in a wide range of applications. Many intelligent features use inputs from the machine to adjust performance to match the conditions. Other features allow the operator to make adjustments to fit his requirements for production or comfort.
Diagnostic systems have been improved to allow for more detailed data access to troubleshoot issues quickly and accurately. Serviceability is improved with easy access to the engine, cooling system cores, and filters. Oil change intervals have been increased for the engine and hydraulic systems to reduce overall operating costs. Cooling fan efficiency is improved with aerodynamic designs to improve air flow and cooling efficiency.
Not only did the Kawasaki 95Z7 introduce many new features, but it retained several of the heavy duty structural features that it has become famous for. Things like Dual Z‐Linkage, Box Section Frames, Base Mounted Boom Cylinders and Heavy Duty Center Pin designs make the 95Z7 the strongest machine in its class.
This machine is ideal for loading customer trucks in a quarry, handling hot slag in a steel mill, carrying big log loads in a millyard, or handling any tough jobs a wheel loader is required to do.
The 95Z7 is the flagship of the Kawasaki family of wheel loaders.Kawasaki is the oldest ongoing manufacturer of rubber‐tired, articulated, wheel loaders in the world, serving North America for over 30 years through its extensive, independent dealer network.
