Featured Equipment: Komatsu HD785-5 Dump Truck

Dump trucks are the modern-day workhorses of mining. These machines, which can stand as tall as a two-story building, are often required to operate 24/7 with drivers remaining behind the wheel for up to 10 hours straight.

In these conditions, reliability, durability, ride quality and driver comfort are what can make or break a new truck. That’s why heavy machinery manufacturers like Komatsu, with machines like the HD785-5 Dump Truck, have so much success.

In this article, we take a look what makes the Komatsu HD785-5 Dump Truck so great in mining and earthmoving applications.
