Komatsu HD785-8 Haul Truck: Power and Performance from Ohio’s Leading Heavy Equipment Supplier


Offered by Columbus Equipment, a leading heavy equipment supply company, the Komatsu HD785-8 haul truck boasts a payload of over 100 tons and unmatched horsepower of 1,140 hp, making it an indispensable asset for mining, quarry, or aggregate operations

Despite its size, the HD785-8 is nimble, with a tight turning radius of just a little over 33 feet. That maneuverability pays off when the operator is positioning the truck for loading or dumping.

“The HD785-8 showcases Komatsu equipment’s superior travel performance on grade,” highlighted Robert Hussey, product marketing manager for Komatsu America. “The haul truck delivers fast acceleration out of the pit,” and downhill travel is easy, he added. “Wet multiple disc brakes on all four wheels provide great downhill brake-retarding performance.” The driver can focus on the road because the Automatic Retard Speed Control system maintains a selected downhill travel speed without relying on engine RPM.

The truck also has traction control to maintain optimum traction in different ground conditions. Material spillage is reduced, thanks to the smooth clutch engagement on the seven-speed automatic transmission.

“The new cab, a testament to Komatsu equipment’s focus on operator comfort, ensures productivity even during extended shifts,” Hussey remarked. The redesigned cab includes upgraded seating, a rearview monitoring system, and Komtrax Plus telematics system.

The KomVision machine monitoring system is another productivity and safety-enhancing feature. It gives the operator a bird’s eye view of the entire working area, displayed on a dedicated monitor in the dash. The LED lighting package also increases visibility and safety in all working conditions.

Being a renowned heavy construction equipment company, we understand the importance of easy maintenance and low costs, and the HD785-8 is designed keeping that in mind. There’s no requirement for DEF, for instance. Filters, grease points, and fuel fill coupler are all grouped together, and the service center is at ground level.

For those in search of top-tier heavy construction equipment, the Komatsu HD785-8 haul truck is a prime choice. Reach out to Columbus Equipment, your trusted Komatsu dealer, for more details on this powerhouse. Find your closest location today!
