830E-5 Dump Trucks

The 830E-5, a 230 metric tonne capacity dump truck is said to be the most technologically advanced 240-US ton class truck Komatsu has produced to date. Powered by a Cummins QSK60 diesel engine rated at a standard 2500 hp (gross), and with a 2700 hp option for greater speed on grade, it incorporates the latest engine and drive system technology, as well as capacity and availability improvements. Advances in the engine and drive system parasitic load management on the 830E-5 reduces fuel consumption by up to 5%. These latest model improvements also reduce external noise emissions; the truck's total environmental operational footprint has been significantly reduced compared with previous models. Designed to provide a platform for future technology expansion, including autonomous operation using Komatsu’s FrontRunner system, and trolley-assist electric/diesel drive options.

Current Offers

Low Maintenance Intensity and Low Fluid Consumption

The hydraulic system is a proven and reliable design with fewer parts than other OEMs. The system utilises a single tank, providing one common source of fluid for steering, braking and hoist actuation. In-line, replaceable filtration elements at 1000hr intervals provide protection from hydraulic system contamination, making the system easier to service.

Structurally Enhanced Frame Design

By using advanced computer-aided design, finite element analysis, and full-scale dynamic and static testing, the frame design has been structurally enhanced to carry more weight and provides the highest structural reliability in the industry.

New Operator Cab with Improved Operator Comfort & Safety Features

The 830E-5 has been designed with operator comfort and safety in mind. Critical controls and warning systems have been ergonomically positioned to lower operator fatigue and improve comfort. The cab incorporates mounting technology that will reduce internal noise and whole of body vibration levels. The cab has been widened to encapsulate two full size operator seats with adjustable suspension.  

Operator visibility has been enhanced through the integration of options into the dash, a wider field of vision and Komatsu’s optional low speed object detection system offering; Komvision.
