Komatsu HD785-8 Rigid Dump Truck to be featured at bauma 2022
Komatsu Europe’s HD785-8 Rigid Dump Truck will be presented on the demo ground at bauma 2022. Designed, developed, and manufactured based on 100 years Komatsu experience and know-how, the HD785-8 delivers the highest levels of safety, performance, operator comfort and productivity.
“The HD785-8 proposes excellent operator comfort, great travel performance and the well-known Komatsu reliability of the previous model” says Juuso Ahola, Product Manager at Komatsu Europe. “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.”
Safety & First-class operator comfort
Safety is Komatsu’s number one priority. The HD785-8 is equipped with LED lights, ground level battery, starter and machine lockout disconnect switches. A newly designed stairway provides safe access to the cabin.
For improved safety, Komatsu KomVision is standard: it 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.
Operator comfort on the HD785-8 includes a new ergonomically designed cab, with a convenient control layout and a comfortable environment for more confident work and greater productivity.
The new fabric-covered, air suspension seat is adjustable to the operator’s weight and height and includes a seat heater and a ventilator as standard.
Thanks to a low noise engine, large capacity viscous cab mountings, hydro-pneumatic suspension and independent strut type suspension on the front wheels, in-cab noise levels are kept at 72 dBA.
Easy & Safe Maintenance
Radiator cleaning becomes easy thanks to the hydraulic radiator fan with reverse mode.
The ground level jump start receptacle and service centre with fast fill coupler for engine, transmission, brake oil & coolant refills further facilitates easy and safe maintenance.
For safety at height, technicians can attach lanyards to tie-off points (ISO 14567) well-placed around the HD785-8.
