  • Hydraulic system

    The power train consists of two main drives. Each of the two gearboxes drives three identical main pumps which draw hydraulic oil from an unpressurized hydraulic tank. Open circuit hydraulics provide maximum cooling and filtering efficiency.

    Main hydraulic pumps Komatsu
    Main hydraulic pumps 4 200 L/min
    Relief valve setting 700 L/min
    High pressure in line filters
    one per pump located at the valve blocks
    310 bar
    Swing flow rate 700 L/min
    High pressure screens 200 microns

    Flow description: The four-circuit systems feature a load-limiting governor with oil delivery summation to the working circuits and incorporates pressure cut-off control. Hydropilot priotieses hydraulic flow giving smooth hydraulic response, simple hydraulic system layout, and a reduced number of components. The hydraulic system includes large swing-out vertical air-to-oil hydraulic coolers with temperature-regulated hydraulically driven fans.

  • Automatic lubrication system

    Three hydraulically powered Lincoln single line automatic lubrication systems are provided as standard, complete with time and volume variable controls. The two central lubrication circuits and open gear grease circuit are supplied by identical pump assemblies from refillable containers which have a capacity of 1x 600 and 1x 300 L (total 238 gal). Replenishment of the containers is through the Wiggins connections on the service arm.

    Hydraulic oil tank 3 715 L
    Hydraulic system 6 000 L
    Fuel 10 355 L
    Engine coolant 720 L

  • Komtrax plus

    Version: Komtrax Plus 2

    Description: The Komtrax Plus monitoring system is designed for Komatsu mining equipment to provide real time and stored
    information about the operating status of the machine. Fault messages are immediately available to the operator via
    a digital display and in the event of critical malfunctions the engine is also shut down. The digital storage provides
    failure summary and analysis, which can be down loaded by laptop computer. This data will assist in predicting or
    reduction downtime. Optionally available is Orbcomm satellite transmission (check for availability in your territory).

Safeguard your operators and work site

Operator and work site safety are a priority. Komatsu hydraulic excavators have an LED screen to give your operator a 360-degree view, each meet ISO 10262, 6394, 10263-4 safety stand-ards, and all include anti-slip gratings, easy ingress/egress and an innovative emergency escape system.

Customised to your operation

While Komatsu shovels and backhoes meet the density benchmark of 1.8 t/m³, you have the option to customize your machine to the bucket size and wear package you need, and choose your heating/cooling systems, travel gear protections, special track pad variations and more.

Sustainable, powerful engines

Tier 4 engines deliver plenty of power with outstanding sustainability. An exhaust after-treatment system reduces particulate matter, sulfur oxides and dangerous NOx, and easy servicing of emissions components.
