Premium Used Equipment offers customers access to high-quality used equipment, backed with one of Komatsu Australia’s Premium Class warranties.

Komatsu Australia’s general manager – Remarketing, Roger Beddard, says its Premium Used Equipment was introduced to the market almost 10 years ago and was immediately successful, giving customers confidence when purchasing used machines.

"Komatsu was one of the first used equipment suppliers to offer warranty on used machines and, back then, our offering was simple," he says.

"We offered only one level of cover on qualifying construction-class units.

"In 2014, off the back of significant success with our Premium Used Equipment product, we extended our offering to include three classifications of warranty which covered Komatsu’s utility, construction and mining classes of used machines."

These Premium, Gold and Silver classes created a surge in demand from customers throughout Australia and New Zealand.

"This latest extension of our Premium Range adds a fourth category of Premium Cover and is designed to ensure purchasers have complete peace of mind when buying qualifying Premium Used Equipment right up to higher operating hour ranges.

"Our newly badged Platinum, Gold, Silver and the new additional Bronze ranges of Premium Used Equipment set a new standard and give our customers unrivalled piece of mind when choosing a used Komatsu machine.

"Komatsu’s selected Premium Used Equipment goes through a rigorous process, so that Komatsu Australia can guarantee the quality and performance of the selected Premium Used machines we sell."

Only Komatsu-branded equipment will be sold under the Premium Used banner, Roger explains.

"Although Komatsu Premium Used Equipment is raising the standard and quality of selected machines it will remain competitive with other brands in the market place, and Komatsu’s long term performance, reliability, durability and resale value will be maintained," he says.

Komatsu Rental now supply quality low-hour fully maintained units after two to three years in the fleet across to Used Equipment to offer valued customers the best range of used machines in the market, Roger reveals.

"Komatsu Used Equipment offers these Ex-Rental units with the confidence of ‘Komatsu fully serviced and maintained’ units and backed with one of our premium class warranties and certification for full peace of mind.

"These units are thoroughly tested and undergo full diagnostics. All necessary repairs are then carried out, before we give it our stamp of approval and only then can it qualify as a Komatsu Premium Used product. Premium Used Equipment will give customers peace of mind that they are buying a quality used Komatsu machine, built to our full quality and performance standards, and completely backed by Komatsu Australia."

Features of Komatsu Premium Used Equipment include:

• Full range of powertrain warranty options now available on selected Premium Used machines

• Preventive maintenance clinics, with adjustments and tune-ups as required

• Industry-leading Komatsu used equipment assessment, whereby each machine is qualified against key criteria

• Komatsu oil wear analysis

• Nationally-recognised risk assessment

• Each machine is fully checked to ensure all components are up to specification, with assurance provided by Komatsu Australia and reviewed by our National Asset manager

• Certified against one of Komatsu’s premium warranties.
