Komatsu Dump truck HD785
(2006)

Komatsu Dump truck HD785

This model came with a 4 wheel retarder that put a brake on all four wheels to prevent the vehicle from speeding up too much while descending. Unlike a regular retarder that puts a brake only on the rear wheels it not only reduced wheel lock but also stabilized the body making driving down hill much easier and safer.

Two different options, a power mode and an economy mode, could be selected depending on the conditions and the amount of work. It was also equiped with "VHPC", the control that automatically switches output based on the amount of loading. It achieved both high productivity and low fuel consumption by delicately controlling the maximum output. High and low speed gears were available for reverse. Its mobility satisfied a wide range of working conditions. HD785 evolved into a new generation machine that married high productivity with superb economic efficiency.

Load capacity: 91,000kg

Dump truck OPEN

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.
