Komatsu consumables: Komatsu Hoses
The hydraulic hose system on Komatsu equipment is a crucial element in the efficient and safe operation of your machine. Komatsu hoses are matched to machine performance and specification which is why it is important that you select the genuine article. A hose failure will not only result in unscheduled downtime, but may have potentially fatal safety implications. A wide range of genuine Komatsu hoses are distributed via our branch network.
Why use genuine Komatsu hoses?
There is big difference in quality between genuine Komatsu hydraulic hoses and those provided by third-party suppliers. We have more than 20,000 product numbers in our hydraulic hose database, with design engineers carefully selecting the right hose to meet machine performance and specification.
Genuine Komatsu hoses are manufactured with the even placement of rubber material and metal wire, ensuring hoses reach their design life with correct use and maintenance practices. Non-genuine hoses are prone to leaking or bursting, resulting in shorter life.
How often should hoses be replaced?
We recommend hydraulic hoses be replaced every two years or 4,000 hours, whichever comes soonest for safety critical parts.
