Bucket conversions

Many companies in the UK are now recognising the cost-saving benefit of the Kmax tooth system after recently converting their buckets.

Marubeni-Komatsu Ltd assisted throughout the conversion process from inspection to quoting, to supply ensuring a first-class service and accurate costing. In many cases, the Kmax tooth has already surpassed the lifetime of previous tooth systems. The same companies are now planning to convert entire fleets.

Don’t forget we can convert the buckets on most makes & models, not just Komatsu.

Here are a few examples of conversions completed in the last 3 months:
