With Komatsu as their chosen excavator brand for many years, civil engineering contracting company, Bolte Civil recently began using Komatsu Rental fleet plant as a new solution for to meet their equipment needs.
Working on the subdivision project "Ocean Mist Estate" in Forresters Beach, Bolte Civil needed specialist precision on the cut and fill earthworks process which a Komatsu D65PXi-18 dozer easily provided.
Bolte Civil selected a D65PXi-18 primarily for its known quality as a dozer in its own right as well as having the additional iMC machine control capability.
Bolte Civil Managing Director, Gavin Kimpton said, "The earthworks process required dozing and trimming house lots to a high tolerance and accurate design earthwork level."
"The dozer and GPS machine control capability allowed this operation to occur and meet the required tolerances in a timely and consistent manner. The iMC system was also very reliable, robust and easy to use machine control system."
Gavin said Komatsu Rental smoothed the rental working process further.
"Komatsu took receipt via email of project design/survey files and uploaded them into the dozer on site. While they await a new Komatsu PC55 machine to be delivered, the Rental of this machine has enabled continuous work on site, to meet the projects requirements.
