Construction Industry Outlook: Komatsu's World Class Excavators

Across the globe, the construction industry relies heavily on all kinds of machines and heavy equipment to perform projects of all sizes. The U.S. construction equipment industry is expected to increase 12% from 2016 to 2026. Perhaps one of the most used pieces of heavy equipment for construction purposes are excavators.

Excavators come in three sizes: compact excavators, mid-size excavators, and large excavators. These machines can weight anywhere between 3,790 pounds to as much as 188,716 pounds, can reach digging depths of roughly 32 feet, and can even come equipped with net rated power range from 14.5 horsepower to as much as 512 horsepower.

Komatsu is a Japanese multinational corporation, located in Minato, Tokyo, that manufactures constructing, mining, forestry, and even military equipment. The corporation was founded in 1921 and now has organizations all over the world -- 227 consolidated subsidiaries and 38 companies accounted for by the equity method. Currently, they are the world's second largest manufacturer of construction equipment and mining equipment (Caterpillar is currently the number one global manufacturer), though they have a much larger presence and market share in various areas throughout Japan and China. Their products are used throughout various industries across the globe and their excavators shine above the rest.

Komatsu excavators are some of the most popular brands across the contraction sector. These hydraulic and world-class excavators are built with the highest quality materials and innovative craftsmanship. Additionally, the company offers up to six machine working modes and produces extremely fast cycle times, effortless multifunction motions, precise bucket movements, as well as powerful lifting capabilities.
