12 June 2024

7-Fitur-Kemudahan-Perawatan-Truk-Tambang-Komatsu-HD785-7United Tractors, Jakarta – In mining areas, many heavy equipment and mining vehicles in operation, one of which is a mining truck or dump truck.   In the mining sector, dump trucks play the role in transporting materials found in mining areas. Transporting and moving material from one location to another is the primary task of a dump truck.

The dump trucks commonly seen in mining areas are substantially larger. It’s because the dump truck is designed to carry large-weighted mining materials. Each dump truck has a different vessel capacity proportionate to its size. Furthermore, the dump truck has a powerful hydraulic system, making dropping the material to the desired location more efficient.

Various types and brands of dump trucks are commonly used in the mining industry, one of which is Komatsu. As a multinational heavy equipment manufacturer, offers a comprehensive range of heavy equipment, such as hydraulic excavators, bulldozers, backhoe loaders, wheel loads, wheel dozers, and its flagship product, the dump trucks.  In Japan, Komatsu is well-known as the leading dump truck manufacturer.

Komatsu and United Tractors have collaborated to provide off-highway dump trucks in Indonesia. There are several different types of Komatsu dump trucks. In this article, we’ll focus on the features of the Komatsu dump truck series HD785-7 that simplify the maintenance process.

The Komatsu HD785-7 is an off-highway dump truck with three main features: productivity, operator comfort & control, and safety features. However, in this article, we will highlight the features that make maintaining the Komatsu HD785-7 simple, ensuring it remains in top shape and increasing unit efficiency.  What are the easy maintenance features of the Komatsu HD785-7? Here’s a summary.

  1. Advanced Monitoring System

First, the truck is equipped with an advanced monitoring system that can identify maintenance aspects of the machine, reduce diagnostic time, provide accurate schedules for oil and filters changes, and display emergency codes that indicate disruption to the machine. With this feature, monitoring the Komatsu HD785-7 becomes more efficient and can achieve higher productivity.

  1. Multi-Disc Wet Brakes and Fully Hydraulic Braking System

Furthermore, the Komatsu HD785-7 dashboard is also equipped with wet disc brakes that are sealed fully to prevent the entry of contaminants, thus reducing the risk of wear and tear. This wet disc brake needs no adjustment, so it’s easier to maintain. The parking brake also uses a wet multi-disc system that requires no adjustment. For a higher level of safety, the brake is also designed with a braking system using three independent hydraulic circuits that serve as a backup hydraulics mechanism.

  1. Longer Oil Replacement Interval 

From a financial point of view, the Komatsu HD785-7 can cut operating costs by extending the oil replacement interval to:

  • Engine oil: 500 hours
  • Hydraulic oil: 4.000 hours

If  the oil replacement intervals are longer, the cost of oil refilling will be lower. However, it should be noted that the actual intervals may vary because the intensity with which each operator operates the HD785-7 cannot be matched. Therefore, if your unit has yet to cross the above interval limit, but the condition of the unit already looks terrible, immediately call a technician to do an oil replacement.

  1. Centralized Filter Arrangement

The next feature of the Komatsu HD785-7 is that this truck operates alongside coal-heavy vehicles with centralized filter placement. The filters on the unit are designed closely in one location and are designed to be easily accessible during maintenance. As a result, if these filters need to be serviced, replaced, or cleaned at some point, technicians can find them in one place to shorten the maintenance time.

  1. Flange-type Rims

Another feature of the Komatsu HD785-7 is disc wheels with flange-type rims. This flange-type disc wheel allows for easy assembling and disassembling of the tyres.  If any tyre damage requires a technician’s assistance, this feature will help the work to be done easily and quickly.

  1. Centralized Lubrication Points 

Like the filter, the lubrication point on the Komatsu HD785-7 engine is also centralized to make it easier for the mechanics to lubricate essential parts. Three essential lubrication locations are centralized to make the unit service easier. With centralized lubrication points, technicians can easily lubricate the essential components whose performance is affected by lubrication.

  1. Equipped with Vehicle Health Monitoring System (VHMS) 

This feature is common among dump truck operators and other Komatsu heavy equipment users. VHMS installed on the unit HD785-7 is a system that monitors the condition of heavy equipment.

VHMS allows anyone to monitor the health status of critical components efficiently. This capability can also be accessible remotely, allowing for easy and quick monitoring of the machine’s performance and operation. As part of Komatsu’s collaboration with United Tractors, this feature is supported by UT, Komatsu, factories, and design teams in the hopes that monitoring the dump truck’s condition will improve performance and extend service life.

Komatsu is the leading manufacturer of off-highway dump trucks among mining industry businesses. The Komatsu brand comes with a high-quality truck unit, one of which is the Komatsu off-highway dump truck HD785-7. The Komatsu HD785-7 has many features that make unit operation and maintenance easier for operators and improve customers’ business efficiency.
