Komatsu has extended its articulated dump truck range for the European market downwards with the addition of the 25tonne HM250-2. According to a statement from the company, the new model has been launched to meet the demand from the market for 25tonne ADTs.
The design of the HM250-2 is based on the concept of Komatsu's HM300-2 which the company claims offers a good top speed and manoeuvrability, as well as a shorter front clearance. The machine also features forced oil cooled multiple disc brakes.
The new ADT is powered by a 232kW SAA6D125E-5 - ecot3 engine which has optimised combustion timing, ignition and a specially designed combustion chamber to reduce fuel consumption, NOx and particulates emissions, and noise levels.
