Hybrid energy capture


These machines are a serious ‘Game Changer’

  • Ultra-low idle, it reduces idle speeds to 700 rpm down from 1000 rpm
  • Apprehensive about performance? - Expect fast cycle times for swing intensive applications such as pipeline and infrastructure work.
  • Production is not an issue with energy regeneration and hybrid power assist to increase swing speeds for faster cycle times, the electric swing motor  requires no pump flow which allows full hydraulic flow for the boom, arm, and bucket functions.
  • The Motor-generator produces electricity and stores it in the capacitor
  • The Motor-generator then utilizes electricity from the capacitor to assist engine acceleration
  • Do you want to ‘Lift’ Heavier? - This machine will not disappoint, with extreme stability over front and side application, amazing for pipe laying applications.
  • DEF injection process only consumes 2.5% of fuel burn
  • Low fuel consumption, efficient and powerful SAA6D114E- Komatsu ENGINE
  • Six working modes are designed to match ~
    • Power
    • Lifting
    • Breaker
    • Economy
    • Attachment Power
    • Attachment Economy



Let’s do some Math!


Here is a 3-year scenario (36 Months), based on fuel at a cost of $1.20 and 8-hour work day x 5 days, and a 40 week year.



*Please Note - Fuel Burn rates vary based on working applications. 

 Customers have reported fuel consumption as low as 16 liters per hour on the HB365-3


Don’t Forget! -  On top of the 30-40% fuel savings a Hybrid may provide, all Komatsu Tier 4 machines include Komatsu care  complimentary maintenance for  3 years/2000 hours!
