This years' AgQuip will see Komatsu showcasing the best in technology with a sustainable priority in earthmoving equipment.
With an unprecedented 25 new generation Komatsu machines launched this year, a visit to Komatsu's stand will be an eye opener.
In particular, Komatsu's latest release Grader GD655-7, focuses on reducing environmental footprint and improving operator safety.
"The new Tier 4 Final Komatsu engine, offers fuel consumption reductions of five to 15 per cent compared with our previous models," Komatsu's sales manager central region, Chris Moroz said.
"It also features reduced emissions of an impressive 90%.
"Technology innovations include all-new Electronic Proportional Controls (EPC) for blade and ripper functions.
"There is also the option of dual-function palm-controlled steering or a conventional steering wheel which greatly cuts down operator effort.
"It reduces hand/wrist movements by 95%, and results in far lower operator fatigue and improved jobsite safety."
As well as providing machine health, performance and location information and Fix It First Time real time diagnostics, the GD655-7 Grader shares its New Tier 4 benefits with other new Komatsu machines that will be on the AgQuip Komatsu display including the new D65EXi-18 iMC dozer, the PC210LC-11 Excavator, WA270-8 Wheel Loader and latest Mini Excavator models.
