Do you really believe Komatsu manufactures all their own parts?
If you do, I have a bridge to sell you. But it’s not your fault; millions of dollars have been spent to try and convince you of this very notion. The Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) are the only supplier of good quality Komatsu parts. Komatsu if the second largest manufacturer of construction equipment worldwide.

The result is that the same injector you buy for your Komatsu can be calibrated to work on a Caterpillar or John Deere machine and the same can be said for most components.
