Komatsu rigid dump truck boasts ‘highest levels’ of safety and performance

KOMATSU Europe’s HD785-8 rigid dump truck will be presented on the demo ground at bauma 2022.

The EU Stage V emissions-compliant model is described by the manufacturer as delivering the ‘highest levels of safety, performance, operator comfort and productivity’.

Juuso Ahola, product manager at Komatsu Europe, said, “The HD785-8 proposes excellent operator comfort, great travel performance and the well-known Komatsu reliability of the previous model. This machine is such a pleasure to operate that you just might want to keep the keys at the end of your shift rather than hand them over to the next operator.”

The HD785-8 boasts LED lights, ground level battery, starter and machine lockout disconnect switches. A newly designed stairway is said to provide safe access to the cabin.

For improved safety, Komatsu KomVision is standard. This creates a real-time 360-degree bird’s-eye view on the cab monitor and eliminates any blind spots on the rear and sides of the machine.

The new cab features a fabric-covered air suspension seat, which is adjustable to the operator’s weight and height and includes a seat heater and ventilator as standard.

Radiator cleaning has been made easier thanks to a hydraulic radiator fan with reverse mode.
