Komatsu HM400-5 articulated dump

With a 44.1 US ton (40 metric ton) payload and a gross vehicle weight (GVW) of 165,633 lbs. (75,130 kg), the Komatsu HM400-5 articulated dump truck is powered by Komatsu SAA6D140E-7 Tier 4 Final engine. The low 10’5” loading height matches with 40-ton to 60-ton hydraulic excavators or 5.5 yd³ to 7.5 yd³ wheel loaders. The two single-staged body lift cylinders provide a 70-degee dump angle. The HM400-5 features the Komatsu Traction Control System (K-TCS) that automatically provides optimum traction when operating in soft ground conditions.  An integrated Payload Meter (PLM) displays the loaded material weight on the 7” high-resolution LCD monitor for the truck operator as well as indicates payload information to the loader operator via external display lamps.  PLM data is also transferred via KOMTRAX and can be accessed by web. The ROPS/FOPS Level-2 certified cab has a newly designed rounded front dash panel with a high resolution 7” LCD information display monitor. The HM400-5 is equipped with remote monitoring technology and data access via the web or smart phone. www.komatsuamerica.com
