The Komatsu 830E is notable for the rated capacity of 231,000 kilograms (255 short tons). While large, the 830E's capacity is just under two-thirds the capacity of its two largest competitors. the Liebherr T 282B and Caterpillar 797B. It differs from conventional dump trucks as it uses an electric drive system instead of a transmission/differential drive. The diesel engine is connected to a GE traction alternator then high voltage cables transfer electricity to the two wheel motors at the rear of the truck.
