Komatsu supports the environmental activities of its customers by providing them with reports that contain recommendations for the ideal operating mode, cessation of engine idling, and more, thereby enabling enhanced energy-conserving operation. These recommendations are based on data compiled by KOMTRAX such as length of operation, amount of fuel consumed, operating modes, and distribution of hydraulic pressure, among others.
