I was readin in EM and J how that big drill was going to be there.The D11T looks.It has had its muflers moved back to the front of the cab like the D10T has.Most likely because of the new engine.The Komatsu D475A-5 looks awesome to

Great pics Tim - on all your MineXpo threads. Posted a few here at work since most "laymen" are quite surprised at the sheer size of this stuff. They were impressed... Wink

Yeah, the stacks are sucked right up against the cab on the D11T - I'm not 100% if it's due to the new engine, or to annoy me (late 10R's, and all T models really restrict my ability to go stand on the hood).

I see they added the optional "let's get somebody killed in the name of safety" ladder and railings package to the MinExpo machine as well.

Really nice pictures guy's ... Thanks for posting them.

No wonder the forum side of the site was locked solid yesterday.

The reason the older D10T has the stacks at the back is they Fitted a Fan driven Intercooler mounted under the Hood. The new machines have the Cooler mounted behind the RAD but never bothered to push the stacks forward?

I know what you mean By the "let's get somebody killed in the name of safety" Walk way. Least the T has a railing unlike the "Large Tanked" R model ..... Dodgy

I hate those railings! Can't hardly see the top of the ripper toolbar, much less if a pickup snuck behind you.

It's all about natural selection. Anybody dumb enoungh to approach without contacting the operator gets taken out of the gene pool.

Also, that 11T had a multi position camera mounted for rear views. From the general rear view and right to the ripper tip. Very nice camera set-up.

Great pics Tim! I was just wondering since when have the 475s gotten the "super dozer" name? I thought only the 575 got that. Have they always been called that? Excellent pics again!

That 475-5 is a "Super Dozer" version. It has the larger "Super Dozer" blade. The D-475 model has been available like that that for several years now.

All Heavy equipment on Mine sites in the UK have rear cameras fitted by law. The 11T camera set-up must be an option as Ive never seen a New T with this fitted. Infact, The only machine ive seen with the R-Camera was the 24M's.

Our new D11T has the camera getup - they really don't help much, and don't keep their angle settings (like the HID lights on the hoist rams of newer R and T models that blow out the rubber bushings every couple of weeks). They may hold up on "soft" applications, like coal stockpiles, reclaim dirt piles, or whatnot, but the setup really isn't the hot ticket for pioneering/development work in hard rock.

Natural selection is a good point - I've never personally hit a pickup, but have seen dozers, blades and rubbertires get them. Granted, 90% of the time, it's been the pickup driver's fault (a few parked ones have gotten clipped too), but there's still the potential there for a tight quarters "boo boo".
