Komatsu introduces WX11 underground machine

Komatsu has introduced a new 11-tonne underground hard rock haulage machine to the global market – the WX11 LHD

Komatsu has introduced the WX11 LHD to the global market, offering what the company says is ‘best-in-class’ breakout force and payload – helping to maximise productivity and provide a lower total cost of ownership.

The new machine boasts a 280 horsepower (209kW) engine and a 35,250kg operating weight, with the company saying the 11-tonne size provides a payload boost (an 8-10 per cent increase) above other machines in class.

Komatsu says the new machine offers underground hard rock miners an exceptional load, haul and dump (LHD) solution, integrating next-generation data management capabilities, operator ergonomics, intuitive controls and compliance with EU Stage V emission requirements, though a Stage III version is also available.

Komatsu says it has several competitive edges in the 10-tonne LHD class for underground mine operators and contractors.

Aside from having adjustable ride control and onboard telemetry, the WX11 also has swing-out radiator fan assemblies to support quick washdowns, heavy-duty axles and optimised kinematics for what Komatsu says is superior breakout force.

Its ease of operability, superior performance and ground-level maintenance position make the machine a game changer, Komatsu says.

“Developed through a close partnership between our experienced team and our longtime customers, this product reflects a shared commitment to design excellence,” Komatsu LHD and truck products director Ryan Karns says.

“The WX11 is the LHD every miner will want to have in their operation.”
