While equipment built to accommodate urban environments, by generating less noise, vibrations and emission, became more common, super sized equipment that could withstand harsh working conditions in places like giant mines were also developed.
As measures for emission control became more strict, Komatsu came up with this model to cope with the regulations. Though it had been ten years since the last model change, the previous model was still holding a good reputation in the market. The new model was built to bring out a better cost performance.
Load capacity: 25,000kg
The history of the dump truck as a transporting vehicle is also the history of increasing the amount of loading to improve productivity at construction sites. At mines especially, new technology is being introduced consistently even today. Enlarging the size by mechanical and electrical formulas, and adding the GPS control system are some of the examples.
