Komatsu introduces new and redesigned LHDs for hard rock mining
With a whole new chassis, powertrain, and operator cabin, Komatsu’s brand-new WX07 7-tonne LHD has been designed from the ground up to provide a standout experience and environment for underground hard rock mining operators. Compared to competitors in its size class, the WX07 is 15 per cent faster on a grade and delivers up to 10 per cent more breakout force, making it up to 14 per cent more productive.
Engineered for small and narrow vein mines, this machine offers a combination of Z-link kinematics, a reinforced boom, and efficient bucket design that enables excellent penetration into the pile for fast bucket filling. The WX07 is engineered to keep minerals loading with a 243-liter fuel tank for longer operational cycles between refueling.
“We’re excited to add the WX07 and WX04 to our LHD lineup, which now has a capacity that spans from three to 22 tons,” says Bill Maki, product manager for Komatsu’s LHDs. “No matter what class of LHD your operation needs, Komatsu offers a choice of machines to consistently haul your ore efficiently and effectively.”
