Just got back from the Banks OCCS, Brenkley, to see their new Komatsu HD785 trucks. Good looking trucks, well priced and stronger than the CAT 777F, more to go there too. Pics to follow soon and look out for a forthcoming feature in EARTHMOVERS :wave:

Those Komatsu haulers to me are copies of Cats popular 777 ! They should be called copycatmatsu's ! Get your own design ideas Komatsu !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's a bit ironic that when working on them at Greenburn the serial numbers of some of those HCL HD785's were in fact ex Law Mining trucks from Garleffan opencast which I spent a lot of time on and now there is 12 new HD785-7 trucks now going into Greenburn for Kier.

Hi
I would like to know what part of the HD785-3 is a copy of the Cat 777

It has a different engine type and set up
It has the torque convertor built into the transmission and is remote mounted, instead of the converter on the back of the engine and the tranny mounted to the rear axle.
It has different mounted front and rear suspension set up
The park brake is a single disc brake with three calipers mounted on the diff input pinion
The wheels are fitted with a tapered locking band
