Comfortable, Efficient, Safe.

The 80ZV-2 features standard air conditioning and
heater. The Air Ride seat is standard. The operator com-
partment has increased leg room. Options such as the
F-R Directional Switch, Ride control, and Single Lever
Hydraulic Control allow the operator additional ease of
operation and comfort.

Versatile, Reliable, Strong.

Like all Kawasaki loaders, the 80ZV-2 has a 45+ year
heritage of strength and reliability.
The 80ZV-2 is available with several buckets, bucket
teeth, and bolt-on cutting edge combinations. A third
spool valve is available to handle a number of attach-
ments and extend the wheel loaders versatility.
Features such as the outboard-mounted, sealed wet disc
brakes are designed for long life and easy access and
overhaul. Spin-on filters, grouped grease fittings, sealed
universal joints, all provide easy field maintenance. The
new MODM (Machine Operation Diagnostic Module)
provides essential operational and diagnostic information
in an easy-to-read LCD display. The optional K-LINK
system allows location, system alarm sensors, and all
major machine performance data to be electronically
transmitted to cell phones, fax and e-mail for real-time
equipment management.

Failure is not an Option.

Kawasaki is dedicated to keeping your wheel loader
up and running, even in the most challenging situa-
tions. Starting with the KLEW (Kawasaki Loaders Early

Since 1962, Kawasaki has been listening to and learning from customers
and dealers in the field. As a result, Kawasaki wheel loaders continue to
evolve, with a constant focus on one thingproducing the most durable,
most efficient, most dependable machines possible.

Easy to Operate.
In a world of increasing demands, tighter deadlines, shrinking budgets
and complicated contracts, better efficiency and greater productivity are a
must. Innovative high-tech features on all Kawasaki wheel loaders allow the
operator to adapt to the environment and the application right from the cab.

Easy to Maintain.
Diagnostic and operational modules monitor fluids and filters, and constantly
provide information on everything from engine and transmission codes to
location, hours, alarm sensors and machine performance data.

Easy to do Business with.

No run-arounds. No layers and layers of management. No distractions
from competing product lines. Wheel loaders are our only business. Got
a question? Well get you an answer. Need a part? Its on its way. Quickly.
Kawasaki offers flexible warranty programs, a state-of-the-art parts distribu-
tion system, an in-house rebuild center, and an experienced, knowledgeable
support staff, focused on serving you.
The independent dealers that represent and support Kawasaki loaders are
experts in their markets and are dedicated to providing you with the best
service available.
Together, we are committed to making your investment in a Kawasaki loader
