Contractors World International Vol 5 No 5

Komatsu Goes Crazy With New

Equipment Launches

Since the last issue of Contractors World,

Komatsu has introduced new products to

the articulated dump truck range, excava-

tors, dozers and more.



dump truck

Exhibited earlier this year at

ConExpo, the HM300 Tier 4 Final is

now available to customers in North


Featuring a net 324 HP (242 kW),

the HM300-5 is powered by a Komatsu

SAA6D125E-7 engine that is EPA Tier 4

Final emissions certified.

With a 30.9 US ton (28 metric ton)

payload and a gross vehicle weight

(GVW) of 117,892 lbs. (53,475 kg), the HM300-5 maintains

the productivity and performance of the previous model,

but offers improved fuel efficiency to deliver what custom-

ers have come to expect from Komatsu articulated dump


High Productivity

Through body design optimization, the model has

increased body capacity and payload. The low 9’2”

(2820mm) loading height easily matches with 30-ton

to 60-ton hydraulic excavators or 5 yd³ to 7.5 yd³

wheel loaders.

Additionally, the two single-staged body lift cylinders

provide a 70-degee dump angle. Selectable working modes

allow the operator to choose between Economy and Power

modes to tailor machine performance to the application or

work conditions.

Komatsu Traction Control System (K-TCS) automatically

provides optimum traction when operating in soft ground


An integrated Payload Meter (PLM) is now standard on

the HM300-5. The PLM displays the loaded material weight

on the 7” high-resolution LCD monitor for the truck opera-

tor as well as indicates payload information to the loader

operator via external display lamps. PLM data is also trans-

ferred via KOMTRAX and can be accessed by web.

Tier 4 Final Emission Certified


The Komatsu Tier 4 Final engine uses an advanced

electronic control system. The result is lower fuel

consumption with no loss of performance. Komatsu

continues to use a Komatsu Variable Geometry

Turbocharger (KVGT) and an Exhaust Gas Recirculation

(EGR) valve for more precise temperature and air

management control as well as longer component


The large cab provides a comfortable and quiet work

environment. The ROPS/FOPS Level-2 certified cab has

a newly designed rounded front dash panel with easy to

reach switches. The center mounted high back, heated air

ride seat with 3-point seat belt provides the operator with

excellent visibility during operation.

A high resolution 7” LCD monitor offers enhanced capa-

bilities and displays information in 25 languages for global
