Komatsu will produce HD785 large dump trucks at its facility in Russia. The company plans to manufacture 20-30 units a year starting in the second half period of fiscal 2011. Komatsu hopes to capitalize on the demand for dump trucks for use in the mines.

Komatsu will produce HD785 large dump trucks with maximum payload of 91 ton (83 t) at Komatsu Manufacturing Rus LLC (KMR)—which opened in Yaroslavl, Russia in June—to capitalize on demand for dump trucks for use in mines in the mid- to long-range future in resource-rich Russia. Hoping to start production in the second half period of fiscal 2011, KMR plans to broaden the model range of large dump trucks in tandem with the market growth. Key components for HD785 models will be initially procured from Japan, while KMR will weld, paint, and assemble the equipment with plans to increase the local procurement ratio of parts in phases. KMR will supply its dump trucks to CIS markets. Equipped with an integrated production line from welding to assembly, KMR has already launched the production of hydraulic excavators.
