After the public success achieved by the exhibition of the prototype at the 2023 edition of the SAMOTER
fair in Verona (Italy), KATO IMER S.p.A. is finally ready to market, starting from January 2024, the new
HD9V5 mini-excavator, entirely designed in Japan by KATO WORKS LTD. but which will be produced in the KATO IMER plant in San Gimignano (Siena, Tuscany) also for non-European markets. This new mini-
excavator is a powerhouse that maximizes operational efficiency by improving fuel consumption, reducing vibrations and noise. All this thanks to the adoption of the new 719 cc 3-cylinder engine calibrated at 2000 rpm and an optimized machine layout. The new design of the 9V5 focuses on ease of maintenance and legendary KATO reliability. With the new Stage V and Tier 4 Final engine, the HD9V5 is ready to confirm the primacy of KATO compact machines on the world market. The stability of the machine has been improved thanks to better weight distribution and a larger front blade. Low fuel consumption, low cost and easy maintenance ensure greater profit. The high reliability, thanks to the optimized design, as well as the low rotation speed of the internal combustion engine guarantee a long life of the machine.
