Komatsu introduces new dump trucksPublished 10/7 at 12:11
Komatsu Europe International had introduced the HD325‐8 and HD405‐8 rigid dump trucks that combine increased engine power and the Komatsu traction control system.
They feature payload capacities of 36.5t and 40t respectively and replace the HD325‐7 and HD405‐7 models.
Both trucks feature a 386kW, EU Stage IV certified Komatsu SAA6D140‐7 engine. The optional Komatsu traction control system 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, the new HD325‐8 and HD405‐8 are designed to offer a maximized productivity with a low operational cost,” said Komatsu Europe product manager Jeroen De Roeck. “The new spacious and ergonomic cab, with fully adjustable, heated and ventilated seat, provides a first‐class, comfortable work environment.”
The latest Komtrax telematics, and the Komatsu care maintenance programme, offer top fleet management and support, protect the machine against misuse and guarantee maximum efficiency and uptime.
Other new standard features include a 175mm LCD colour monitor, a dedicated rear view monitor, fast‐fill fuel system and a 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.
