Importance of Quality Machinery: 3 Reputable Construction Equipment Manufacturers

bobcat

It doesn't matter what kind of construction job your team is working on -- if you're not using the highest quality tools and products on the market, the final result is going to suffer. Additionally, it's going to take more than merely using the best available replacement final drive motors for major brands like Bobcat, John Deere, or Komatsu - you'll need to ensure proper equipment maintenance and repair, as well.

In other words, quality control matters. Whether your construction project is big or small, you want to ensure that your heavy equipment is delivering the best value. Construction equipment is a multi-billion-dollar industry, and it’s expected to continue to grow. You may find yourself unsure about what to choose given the large number of brands. Who is the most reliable? Who has the best warranty? Whose replacement parts will stand up to continual use?

Here are some of the world's most reputable construction equipment manufacturers that you should consider working with to ensure high quality performance.

Bobcat

Bobcat has been a quality construction equipment manufacturer and construction industry leader since 1956. They are, perhaps, the most recognizable brand when it comes to compact equipment. The company is based in the United States, although its products are in use around the world.

In 2009, Hermann Simon’s book Hidden Champions described Bobcat as a role model for other companies of similar size. Many of our customers here at Mini Final Drives appreciate Bobcat for its quality American workmanship, as well as its reputation for comfort and quality assurance.

You may be familiar with Bobcat’s line of mini-excavators. Their compact size makes them ideal for construction projects with width restrictions (e.g., gates and doors). You may also love their intuitive controls and advanced hydraulic features, which are some of the reasons why they're among the highest-performing machines on the market.

Bobcat final drive motors are high quality, but they do demand a bit of maintenance. Owners should change the oil at least once per year and check the oil every month or after 100 hours of use, whichever comes sooner. As with any piece of equipment, a final drive motor should be replaced using quality OEM parts.

John Deere

While some may associate the company with its signature-green agricultural products, John Deere offers a wide range of high-quality equipment. Their products can be found at a variety of job sites and construction sites, including those associated with commercial and residential building, lawn care, forestry, mining, and more. You can also find many consumer-grade products made from quality materials that can often be purchased from a local dealership. John Deere also specializes in diesel engines, drive-trains (axles, gearboxes, and transmutation), and all kinds of other heavy equipment products.

Their parent company — Deere & Company — is an industry leader in the United States as well as globally. They frequently rank in the Fortune 500, further emphasizing their reputation for quality and excellence.

Today, they are the largest agriculture machinery company in the world. When you buy their products, you’re contributing to the thousands of American workers employed in John Deere’s factories.

John Deere final drive motors are among the highest quality final drive motors available. Their power and performance is legendary — like the one that powers the 7,500-pound 35D excavator that is capable of moving roughly 50 times its own weight, while moving uphill.

Komatsu

Komatsu Ltd is a Japanese-based, multinational corporation that manufactures all kinds of construction, mining, and even military heavy equipment items — and all of them meet stringent quality standards. In recent years, Komatsu has expanded beyond construction activities, mining, and defense, however, and has also become widely known for industrial products, such as thermoelectric generators, lasers, and press machines.

Komatsu boasts having the largest bulldozer in the world: the D575A. But their excavators have long been popular among contractors who appreciate their transportable size and low engine emission, which makes it easier for construction companies, civil engineers, and others involved in projects utilizing Komatsu equipment to meet sustainability standards set by the EPA.

The final drive motor produced by Komatsu is among the best on the market today because the quality of materials they use is unsurpassed. While the company is based in Japan, its products are distributed from warehouses across the United

States, so customers don’t have to worry about delays when they’re in need of a replacement part.
