Wisely assisted with the Komatsu rebuild project in Mackay providing OEM support in the form of highly qualified, OEM experienced trades personnel for the project.
Major scope items:
- Truck stripped back to its bare chassis
- Bare chassis fully crack tested and any necessary repairs carried out
- All hydraulic hoses, electrical cables and associated fittings replaced
- Hydraulics systems fully serviced, including replacement pumps and cleaning valve bodies
- Drive systems updated, including upgraded wheel motors and drive cooling packages
- Other updates include changing the lights from HID to LED and incorporating more current technologies for improved safety and reliability
- Engines and all major components changed out
- Each rebuild took around 3000 labour hours over 10 weeks, and involved six tradespeople and two apprentices working two shifts a day, six days a week.
- With this rebuild project we were aiming for the customer to take the truck life from 65,000 hours to 110,000 hours.
