As use of ICT for construction equipment became more common, things like crewless dump trucks, IT execution, and KOMTRAX were further developed. Hybrid equipment that decreased both fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission was introduced and marked a new generation of construction machines.
D61EX/PX-23 is a newly launched mid size bulldozer that corresponds with the 2011 off-road engine emission standards. It is equipped with the new generation engine that meets the emission regulation in Japan, North America and Europe. In addition it achieves a high level of productivity and mileage performance with the new electronic control HST that adjusts body performance for the specific operation ideally, which further reduces fuel consumption.
It also provides an excellent front view with the new style 'super slant nose' design and the full- color rear view monitor to ensure clearance behind the body installed as standard equipment. It also employs the 7-inch HD LCD monitor for clear display and supports the energy saving operation of the eco-guidance system.

Since its first emergence in 1951, it took only 50 years for the hydraulic shovel to establish its primary position on construction sites worldwide. Its size ranges from mini to super size depending on the scale of construction, and during the half century, it kept evolving by achieving a minimum rear-swing radius and adapting styles that would work with characteristics of each site. Mirroring the movement of a human hand, a hydraulic shovel will continue to evolve during the 21st century.
