    hello Sophia, I am a die hard Komatsu person, any questions about 730e please ask, 630e is no longer manufactured so I dont know too much about that model, we do have many 830e and 930e in China also, Go Komatsu!

    Mr Komatsu, It's funny how someone, you in this case , will say something and it sparks a thought. Being that you said you've been with Komatsu for 14 years and I see you're from Houston, I had to think back to the mid70's. That was when Komatsu started importing their equipment in a big way. At that time I was leased to a trucking co from Dallas, C&H Transportation, who had a yard in Houston close to Hobby Airfield. That yard was where all the machines were stored until they went to the dealers. For a couple of years I made Houston a "favorite destination' when looking for a load from home, knowing I could do local work moving Komatsu's from the docks to the yard there by Hobby. I can't remember the model numbers or sizes, but I do know ya got nagged at if ya came back to the yard with any empty space on a trl. Was a different time back then.


    Thanks for the memory. :drinkup

    I too would like to learn more and share info. I don't know much more than tonnage capacities and comparable models. (i.e. Cat 797F vs Komatsu 960E)
