Komatsu offers a 24/7 technical support hotline - a one-stop shop for all technical support enquiries will be available for all Komatsu Utility, Construction & Mining equipment.
Komatsu customers can phone at any time for technical assistance and the available support will include everything from answering a quick shop manual question, right through to a lengthy more technical troubleshooting solution session. It’s simply a matter of calling 1300 566 287 and selecting option 3 “Technical Assistance”.
Customers will also be able to contact the Komatsu Technical Coordination Centre for all technical enquiries by phone. This will also save time for them having to look for the phone number for the Komatsu Branch and then find the technical person to help the enquiry.

Brad started with Komatsu Australia in January 2003 as an apprentice plant mechanic and completed his apprenticeship in April 2006.
