Komatsu Australia has announced a package deal for purchasers of an SK714-5 skidsteer and a PC27MR-3 mini excavator, with special finance rates available through Komatsu Australia Corporate Finance.

"Currently we are offering the SK714-5 skidsteer for $140 a week, but from August 1, we are offering to package up the PC27MR-3 for a total of just $325 a week," he said.

"When you consider you would pay around $400 a day just for a skidsteer, that is a

very attractive package.

"In addition, these are fully equipped machines, ready to go straight to work; they are not base model machine where you need to spend a lot of extra money to spec them up to work," said Carl.

The ready-to-work SK714-5 includes a 4:1 bucket, spare rim and tyre, safety beacons, reversing alarm and all other safety equipment, plus Komatsu's two-speed travel servo control.

The ready-to-work PC27MR-3 includes a canopy, rubber tracks, quick hitch, three buckets -- 300 mm, 450 mm and a 1 m mud bucket, plus safety beacons, fire extinguishers and all other safety equipment.

The package includes as standard Komatsu's KOMTRAX remote monitoring system, with free machine condition and location monitoring for 12 months, plus three years extended

powertrain warranty.

"We believe this is a really good little package, at the right sort of money," said Carl.

"For someone looking to get into business, or to upgrade their existing equipment, or for plumbers, electricians, builders and other tradies looking to extend their capabilities, it's an

ideal opportunity."

About the two machine

Released earlier this year, Komatsu's PC27MR-3 is a sub-3 tonne addition to its MR-3 range and suitable for transporting on a standard 3 tonne capacity tipper.With an operating weight of 2.89 tonnes, it is powered by an Interim Tier 4 compliant Komatsu 3D82AE-6 diesel rated at 19.2 kW, and incorporates Komatsu's KOMTRAX remote monitoring system as standard.

"This new excavator has been designed for use with 3 tonne tippers, making it an extremely versatile and easily transportable unit while still delivering close to equivalent digging power and performance to a 3 tonne excavator," said Carl.

As with other models in Komatsu's MR-3 mini excavator range, the PC27MR-3 incorporates a

class-leading low-emission engine complying with the forthcoming Tier 4 emissions standards increased productivity, improved operator comfort and safety, and easier servicing
