New Komatsu rigid dump truck launched

THE latest addition to Komatsu’s portfolio – and that of the manufacturer’s distributor in Ireland, McHale Plant Sales – is the new HD605-10 rigid dump truck.

The model boasts features including ‘enhanced’ engine power and torque, and what Komatsu says is ‘cutting-edge fuel-reduction technologies’.

Added benefits described by the manufacturer include ‘increased power and optimal performance’ at the lowest cost per tonne, unparalleled safety and comfort for operators, with weight reductions, improved durability and an expanded load capacity up to 64 tonnes with 43m³ body.

Building on the reliability of its predecessor, the machine is powered by a 610kW Stage V engine and a host of other features improvements said by McHale plant sales director, Denis McGrath to include ‘a number of ‘car-like’ features such as three selectable drive modes to match applications (Economy, Economy Light, & Power); illuminated stair walkways; an external seat belt reminder lamp; hill start assist, and cruise control’.
