We’re off to Hillhead again!
Marubeni-Komatsu is excited to announce that it is once again exhibiting at Hillhead 2016. The biennial event, which is held at the Hillhead Quarry in Buxton, Derbyshire on June 28th – 30th June is the UK’s leading trade show for quarry, construction and recycling. With over 450 exhibitors showcasing their products and services to in excess of 17,000 visitors, Hillhead 2016 promises to be an event not be missed.
Once again, Marubeni-Komatsu will be showcasing an exciting mixture of static display and demonstration machines on stand Y1.
Machines on display:
Unveiled at Bauma earlier this year our new Hybrid machine is the Komatsu HB365LC-3. We’re incredibly excited and lucky to have this on static display having had a busy few months touring Europe. This high technology and environmentally sustainable 36 tonnes hydraulic hybrid excavator will be one of the highlights of Hillhead 2016. The new Hybrid was designed to provide 20% fuel savings to customers and KOMTRAX™ data from HB365LC-3 machines working in Japan since February 2016 show that target has been reached. The new HB365LC-3 hybrid excavator features an EU Stage IV engine and ultra-low noise levels, and it further reinforces Komatsu’s strong commitment towards a substantial reduction of the environmental impact of earthmoving machines.
Our second flagship machine this year is the brand new Komatsu WA600-8, which is a real crowd pleaser. This large wheel loader offers an outstanding combination of stability, breakout power and tractive effort. Built on the recognised benefits of its predecessor, it’s a versatile performer with an EU Stage IV engine that uses up to 13 % less fuel. Available machine attachments extend the machine’s versatility to load and carry or quarry applications. The WA600-8 has an enhanced lockup torque converter function, a new auto-digging mode and a new E-Light work mode and uses SmartLoader logic. The Komatsu redesigned digging bucket improves penetration and is easier to fill. These combined enhancements greatly increase operating comfort, boost the new wheel loader’s productivity and reduces fuel consumption.
Visit the Marubeni-Komatsu stand and join us for refreshments at our Barista coffee bar from Café Azzurro. We’ll also fire up the BBQ so make sure you come along for a bite to eat too. We’ve got some excellent goodies to give away this year; get your badge scanned to pick up your giveaway bag. Inside the stand we will also have our shop, which will be selling some exciting Komatsu branded clothing and items and of course a range of collectable Komatsu scale models.
Be sure to keep an eye out for our competition too – we’ll have some exciting prizes up for grabs.
We look forward to seeing you there!
