When you turn the key on a machine or a vehicle, you expect it to start. Several systems play a role in whether it does or does not happen, but one of the most important factors is the battery.

“It is essential to use one that’s proven to perform under all circumstances,” emphasized Dimitra Balafoutis, Komatsu Product Manager, Consumables. “We recommend using genuine Komatsu batteries in our machines because they are manufactured to stand up to challenging conditions such as extreme temperatures and high vibrations, which are common on our customers’ job sites. They were designed and built to ensure durability and reduce downtime.”

Balafoutis noted that Komatsu genuine batteries undergo more than 300 quality-control checks through the manufacturing process. With proper maintenance, they typically last three years or longer. Komatsu supports all batteries with its standard parts warranty, which is one or two years depending on part number.
“A wide range of 6-volt and 12-volt sizes are available,” said Balafoutis. “Our distributors stock the most common ones, so they are easily available. If a less-common type is needed, you can order it through your distributor or on the ePortal web application and have it shipped to the distributor or your location.”

Howitt Construction Ltd. Field Mechanic Jon Rangen appreciates the long-life and durability Komatsu batteries provide. “They have always worked well for us,” said Rangen. “Komatsu batteries are competitively priced and give us great performance. We also like that they are cleanly packaged and in a very sturdy case.”

Power your other machinery too

With Komatsu’s all-makes program, customers can also order OEM batteries for their Komatsu equipment and its competitors through their local Komatsu branch, explained Balafoutis. This includes construction, agriculture, mining, forestry and forklift products.

“Those OEM options are available if the customers want them; however, Komatsu genuine batteries work in most brands of machinery,” Balafoutis pointed out. “Distributors can assist customers in determining the right fit for whatever their need is.”
