Designed for quarrying, construction and smaller-scale mining operations, the HD605-8 features the optional Komatsu Traction Control System to provide optimum traction in all ground conditions. It can also be equipped with the Automatic Retard Speed Control system, which maintains control even when fully loaded on steep haul roads.
The HD605-8’s engine doesn’t require the use of selective catalytic reduction or diesel exhaust fluid (DEF/AdBlue) to achieve Tier 4 emissions standards. It can therefore reduce both nitrous oxide and particulate matters emissions by 90 per cent compared with its Tier 3 engine equivalents.
The new engine incorporates an advanced electronic control system that performs high speed processing of all signals from sensors installed in the vehicle. Engine condition data is displayed via an on-board network to a cab monitor. This data can be accessed and managed via the KOMTRAX telematics remote monitoring system, ensuring owners and fleet managers stay abreast of machine health and maintenance requirements.
Komatsu Australia will be on Booths 11 and 12 at the IQA’s annual conference at GMHBA Stadium, Geelong, from 1 to 3 October.
