Komatsu: Good as gold


Komatsu is back again as the Gold sponsor of the National Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo.

The Komatsu team is excited to showcase the next steps in the company’s electric offering to Australian customers at Australia’s largest construction industry expo.

Located at Stand B1, on the aptly named Komatsu Street, Komatsu will have one of the largest displays of machinery and technology at the event, with everything from excavators to wheel loaders and graders on display.

Komatsu’s Sales Manager – Central Region, Chris Moroz, says the annual expo is an opportunity to showcase the latest equipment and technology, which this year includes two electric excavators for customers to get a first look at.

“The PC210LCE-11 hydraulic electric excavator prototype will have its first official appearance at the expo, alongside the PC33E-6 electric mini excavator,” he said.

“Both these pieces of equipment are battery- powered and deliver zero-emissions, without compromising on productivity or comfort, something that is a big focus for us as a brand as we work towards a more sustainable future.”

Komatsu has committed to reaching zero carbon emissions by 2050 and halving its CO2 emissions from product operations from 2010 levels.

“We’re excited to have them both on the ground and get real time feedback from customers and attendees on what they think of the machines, before they head off on a roadshow right across the country,” Chris said.

Komatsu will also have some of its Smart Construction offerings on display, with Retrofit Kit (RFK ) on the PC138US-11 mid-sized excavator. gold

RFKs allow conventional machinery to perform digital construction techniques, using ICT features such as 3D machine guidance, payload management and 3D construction data collection.

“RFK can be fitted to a variety of machine sizes, makes and models, including older machines, making it an appealing addition for many attendees at DD&T, who come from a variety of businesses, whether that is large earthmoving fleets to smaller weekenders looking for their next piece of DIY equipment,” Chris said.

“We’re excited to have these machines on site for all to have a look at and showcase Komatsu’s latest innovations.”

For those interested in a career with the global machinery brand, the team will be onsite to chat about the opportunities and roles available with the award-winning company.

“We’re always on the lookout for more people to join our team, whether that be in service tech roles, sales, IT, or even engineering and white- collar roles,” Chris said.

“The opportunities at Komatsu are endless. So come by Stand B1, and find out more about Komatsu, its products and services, and its people. We look forward to seeing you there.”

The National Diesel, Dirt & Turf Expo will be held from Friday to Sunday, April 12-14, at Sydney Dragway, Eastern Creek, NSW.
