KOMATSU EUROPE: new HD465-8 and HD605-8 rigid dump trucks
Both new trucks feature a Komatsu SAA6D170E-7 engine with its power increased to 578 kW (775 HP). This latest engine technology from Komatsu also reduces fuel consumption. The optional Komatsu Traction Control System (KTCS) automatically applies the brakes independently to achieve optimum traction in varying ground conditions. Because the system operates without the need for differential lock-up, steering performance is not compromised.
“With the integration of the latest Komatsu engine technology, and increased power, the new HD465-8 and HD605-8 are designed to offer maximized productivity and low operation costs” says Jeroen De Roeck, Product Manager at Komatsu Europe. “The new spacious and ergonomic operator cab, with fully adjustable, heated and ventilated operator seat, provides a first-class comfortable work environment”.
The latest KOMTRAX™ telematics, and the Komatsu Care® maintenance program, offer fleet management and support, protect the machine against misuse and guarantee maximum efficiency and uptime. Other new standard features for the two new trucks include a seven-inch LCD colour monitor, a dedicated rearview monitor, fast-fill fuel system, an engine compartment light, and a premium heated and ventilated operator’s seat with air suspension. Front access is improved with sloped stairs and handrails, in place of the previous ladder configuration.
A Payload Meter (PLM) manages the payload of each hauling cycle and analyses the truck’s production volume and working conditions for a specific period. Loaded weight is displayed in real time, both on the cab’s monitor and by external display lamps.
Standard features of the new HD465-8 AND HD605-8:
Komatsu Engine Technology
The powerful SAA6D170E-7 engine provides 578 kW (775 HP)
