Ecology & Economics
Komatsu’s latest energy-saving technology results in low fuel consumption but still provides high work productivity. To support optimal operation, the cab is also equipped with an ECO gauge which is easy to read on the LCD monitor and inform the fuel consumption.
The Komatsu SAA12V140E-3 has great power and excellent fuel efficiency thanks to the HD1500-8 engine with 1175 kW (1576 HP). This provides the greatest acceleration and travel speed at horsepower-to-ton rates. The Komatsu SAA12V140E-3 also has high torque at low speeds and good acceleration to ensure maximum productivity with low fuel consumption.
Operator Comfort and Safety
Ergonomic operator compartment design with level 2 ROPS & FOPS cab provides operator comfort to control layout and provides confidence to deliver high productivity. The hoist system is automatically controlled facilitating minimum dumping operations. Sensors are also installed to detect the position of the dump body and reduce shocks.
Reliability and Easy Maintenance
Cast-steel compounds are used in critical areas of the main frame where loads and vibrations are concentrated. The standard dump body is made of high strength steel with the best durability and low maintenance costs. The service center can easily be found at the bottom of the steering/hoist tank. This service center facilitates engine oil, coolant, transmission oil, steering & hoist oil, and brake cooling oil to be refilled at the same location.
