Komatsu upgrades off-highway trucks

Komatsu has updated its HD465 and HD605 off-highway trucks increasing power to 724 horsepower.

These models have payload capacities of 61 U.S. (short)/55 metric tons and 69.4 U.S. (short)/63 metric tons, respectively. They replace the HD465-7 and HD605-7 models.

Better fuel consumption on the new 465 is helped by an auto idle shutdown feature which shuts the machine down after a preset idle time.

Komatsu now includes its Traction Control System as a standard on these trucks. The system automatically applies independent brake assemblies to achieve optimum traction in varying ground conditions.

The trucks also have Komatsu’s “Advanced Transmission with Optimum Modulation Control System” which adjusts shifting performance based on demand in order to deliver a more comfortable ride while reducing material spillage.

The improved cab on these trucks features a new air-suspension, high-back, ventilated and heated seat along with a 7-inch color display and a separate rearview monitor. Operators have access to an integrated payload meter and automatic retard speed control which maintains a selected downhill travel speed appropriate for the grade.
