The new HD465-8 and HD605-8 are designed to offer maximized productivity and low operation costs

“With the integration of the latest Komatsu engine technology, and increased power, the new HD465-8 and HD605-8 are designed to offer maximized productivity and low operation costs" says Jeroen De Roeck, Product Manager at Komatsu Europe. “The new spacious and ergonomic operator cab, with fully adjustable, heated and ventilated operator seat, provides a first-class comfortable work environment”.


The latest KOMTRAX™ telematics, and the Komatsu Care® maintenance program, offer top fleet management and support, protect the machine against misuse and guarantee maximum efficiency and uptime.

Other new standard features for the two new trucks include a seven-inch LCD colour monitor, a dedicated rear-view monitor, fast-fill fuel system, an engine compartment light, and a premium heated and ventilated operator’s seat with air suspension. Front access is improved with sloped stairs and handrails, in place of the previous ladder configuration.

Standard features of the new HD465-8 AND HD605-8:

Komatsu Engine Technology

  • The powerful SAA6D170E-7 engine provides 578 kW (775 HP).  

  • The hydraulically actuated Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Variable Geometry Turbocharger (VGT) ensure precise operation and quick engine response.

  • Maintenance of engines is simplified with enhanced monitor panel capability and service features.

  • KOMTRAX™ and the monitor panel provide critical information for easy monitoring and key data for production management.

  • Komatsu Diesel Particulate Filter (KDPF) and other after-treatment components are designed in conjunction with the engine for efficiency and long life.

  • Automatic KDPF regeneration is performed passively, with no action required of the operator and no interference with machine operation.

  • No Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system is required for these models.

New In-Cab Enhancements/Features
