Sustainable Technology is the focus at Komatsu, Scania and L&T. As part of our initiative to introduce sustainable technologies; all these machines have been designed to run on B20 Biodiesel. These equipment deliver the same power and productivity when they consume alternate energy but save fossil fuel and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
These new models incorporate Komatsu’s cutting-edge technology and have been specially developed to suit tough Indian applications and conditions. The new high-performance Hydraulic Excavators have generated tremendous interest among buyers and have been lauded for introducing highly productive machines.
The show has Komatsu, Scania and L&T displaying 18 machines and eight special attachments, making it one of the most comprehensive displays of Construction, Earthmoving and Road Machinery.

Under the Aatmanirbhar Bharat Initiative, a new range of CEV-IV emission compliant Road Machinery manufactured by L&T has also been made a part of the display.
Komatsu machines are digitalised and equipped with KOMTRAX tracking systems that enable users to monitor equipment health and increase efficiency. The stall has an audio-visual room for customers to experience the depth of Komtrax reports and understand its benefits.
