“We needed something mid-size,” says Ken Larson, Manager.
We already have a really big one and a really small one.” Exploring options, he talked to Dwight Diehl, foreman at the RM of Canwood. Diehl suggested contacting SMS Equipment as his RM had recently acquired a Komatsu grader and loader from them and were most pleased.
They soon picked a Komatsu WA250PZ from SMS Equipment—with the landfill bucket because it’s used mostly for moving light garbage. “So when we occasionally use it to move gravel or dirt we just take smaller loads,” explains Larson. “In the winter we use it for snowplowing and cleaning up the yard.”
