Re: Komatsu Saga
I don't know what it is but i've allways been a person that gets satisfaction from having a good laugh and getting on with people. In just the same vain helping people with problems and getting them out of the shit, quite literaly in many cases as we are known for machine rescue from bogs and especialy silt lagoons. I have some 50 tonne bonds and many heavy chains, and five 150 mill thick excavator mats 5x1 metre. We have taken blades off dozers in order to move them within the hour. Dozers, minus blades, off our own jobs, in the past, in order to tow out stricken machines. My view is, for whatever reason your in the shit you'll need help. A challenge over come makes the day for all cocerned. Sad thing is when ever we are in the shit we seem to have to get our own paddles out. I have repaired machines well into the early hours for ourseves and others. Dealers that shut the doors at 5.30 and wont help until 8 the next morning are a waste of time.
We are in the process of rebuilding two D58P Komatsus in order to sell them. I will only have two 210s two D65PX and one D31s left to sell or scrap.
As i have said before, I have now bought 10 other machines non Komatsu since this saga began, including three brand new Volvos, and just looking at a new EC380D, like i said who's loosing now.
