Komatsu going for gold at Diesel Dirt & Turf

Komatsu is back as Gold Sponsor of Diesel, Dirt and Turf Expo for another year, with new machinery and Retrofit kits on display

Komatsu is back again as the Gold Sponsor of the Diesel Dirt and Turf Expo, taking place April 12–14 at Sydney Dragway, with the team excited to showcase the next steps in Komatsu’s electric offering to Australian customers.

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

Komatsu sales manager – central region Chris Moroz says Diesel Dirt & Turf is a great opportunity to showcase Komatsu’s 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,” Moroz says.

“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 taking its carbon dioxide emissions from product operations to half their 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,” Moroz says.

Komatsu will also have some of its Smart Construction offerings on display, with a Retrofit Kit (RFK-3DMG) on the PC138US-11 mid-sized excavator. Moroz says RFK-3DMGs allow conventional machinery to perform digital construction techniques, using features such as 3D machine guidance, payload management and 3D construction data collection.
