Komatsu Europe is to launch a conversion kit for pre-owned EU Stage IIIB Komatsu machinery.
The kits are designed to allow machines originally sold in Europe with Stage IIIB engines to be used in lesser regulated countries where ultra-low sulphur diesel (ULSD) is not available. Ultra-low sulphur diesel is essential for equipment fitted with Stage IIIB and higher emissions control systems.
The modification process will be carried out by authorised Komatsu dealers. The conversion deregulates the machinery, meaning it cannot be used in highly regulated markets.
Jim Venerus, Komatsu Europe product marketing deputy general manager, said, “Innovative design, quality manufacturing and the Komatsu care programme mean that Komatsu pre-owned products are in demand across the world. The Komatsu-approved conversion process allows Komatsu dealers to provide a quick and easy solution to our customers without compromising product performance”.
