Komatsu is excited to be back as Gold Sponsor of Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo 2023.

Komatsu will be the Gold Sponsor of the Diesel Dirt & Turf Expo again this year, with a big team presence planned to showcase its innovative range of Smart Construction technology.

Located at Stand B1, Komatsu will have one of the largest displays of machinery and technology at the expo, and Chris Moroz, Komatsu’s Sales Manager – Central Region, says a big focus of its marquee will be Smart Construction, a suite of offerings that improve productivity and safety in the construction, quarrying, and mining industries, through the application of unique technology and integrated products.

“The tools in our Smart Construction suite are designed to improve communication and connectivity between our customers, their machines, and their materials,” he says. “They cover unique solutions such as intelligent machine control, drone data collection to create 3D terrain maps, site dashboard visualisation and remote operator support.”

Komatsu will have three Intelligent Machine Control (iMC) machines on display: the PC360LCi-11 36-tonne excavator, the 23-tonne

“iMC enables operators to program 3D design data directly into a machine, and delivers major productivity benefits for customers, from controlling cut depth while avoiding track shoe-slip on the dozers, to increased accuracy and automatic grading capabilities on the excavators,” Chris says.

“We’re excited to have these machines on-site at DD&T and showcase Komatsu’s latest innovations for our construction customers.”

Komatsu will also have its Retrofit Kit (RFK) on display on the PC138US-11 mid-sized excavator. Chris says RFKs allow conventional machinery to perform digital construction, using ICT features such as 3D machine guidance, payload management, and 3D construction data collection.

“RFKs can be fitted to a variety of machine sizes, makes and models, including older machines, making it an appealing addition for many of our customers,” he says.

Chris says Komatsu will also have a large presence from its sales and support teams from right across the business at DD&T.

“Visitors will be able to stop by and have a chat with representatives from our Smart Construction, recruitment, aftermarket, Komtrax, and Portal teams for any issues or questions on the machines and technology on display,” he says.

“They can also catch our PC138US-11 RFK and
