Customer Question

So any idea of what the 2 pedals do on this komatsu? Cause I pretty much would be able to figure it out by now if I pop the engine panel off...

The left pedal is the clutch. The two right pedals are left brake and right brake, for steering.

What about the pedal on the right side?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
That will be the go pedal! Foot throttle.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But the throttle is controlled with a lever by left hand.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
Yes, but it also has a foot control.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I ll give it a try tomorrow see what happens. It has 3 gears forward and 3 back so the throttle controls the speed. That right foot pedal does not seem to increase the rpms. If you can think of something else let me know .
Thank you
Pete

Do you have the model number? All I had to go by was the picture. I assumed it was dozer.

Turns out the pedal on right is to apply less power as when you are pushing a load over a hill so you don't go over .so it's an inching antithrottle pedal.

!!ah! Dethrottle!
