Suppliers extend high pressure hose assembly agreement

?We can now supply genuine high pressure hydraulic hose assemblies for safety-critical applications available from Pirtek for Komatsu?s full range of quarrying equipment, including wheel loaders, excavators, dump trucks and crushers,? Komatsu Australia?s National OEM product manager Stuart Moffitt said.
?This gives our customers in the quarrying sector access to the highest levels of service and support, along with significantly shorter response times that can be offered through Pirtek?s 24/7 mobile service network ? as well as access to more competitive pricing for genuine Komatsu hose assemblies,? Moffitt added.
?In addition, we will be expanding our genuine hose assembly capability with Pirtek into New Zealand as part of our longer term plans in 2014 and 2015.
?As a result Komatsu?s New Zealand quarry customers will shortly start seeing the benefits of this landmark partnership.?
The agreement signed in January covers 14 Pirtek service centres set up to manufacture genuine high pressure Komatsu hose assemblies to the Komatsu Engineering Standard (KES) for both new machine builds as well as aftermarket hose sales.
As the newly signed agreement is expanded, Komatsu?s construction and mining equipment customers across Australia and New Zealand will have access to a network of more than 100 Pirtek service centres and 320 mobile service units, in addition to Komatsu Australia?s own service and support network.
According to Moffitt, the new agreement builds on the one signed between the two companies in May 2010, and strengthens the 10-year relationship.
?This landmark agreement between Komatsu and Pirtek has proved to be highly successful, giving our customers throughout Australia access to genuine Komatsu hose assemblies,? he said.
Komatsu quarrying plant and equipment covered by this agreement includes:
  • Wheel loaders (all sizes).
  • Excavators/face shovels (all sizes up to PC1250SP-8R).
  • Dump trucks (all rigid truck sizes up to HD785-7, plus all articulated dump trucks).
  • Portable crushers: BR380JG-1E0.
