Productivity and Proactive Support

Say goodbye to hit-or-miss maintenance—KOMTRAX allows you and your local dealer to be more proactive in scheduling informed, intelligent preventive maintenance for your machines. Each day, the KOMTRAX Web site displays information on each machine’s performance, including service meter readings, cautions, and engine performance details such as working and idle times. Maintenance reminders coupled with the abnormality codes your dealer receives allows you or your dealer to identify and address potential future issues during routine maintenance checks—and to ensure parts availability for faster repairs and greater machine availability.

Smart management

KOMTRAX allows you to locate equipment on large jobsites or around your territory, monitor machine movement, determine which operators are more efficient in which situations, track fuel consumption, identify operator use and habits, and chart daily hours of operation. With dealer provided operational reports you can see how many hours your machine spent in various modes of operation such as digging, traveling, hydraulic relief, power mode, economy mode, lifting mode, and more.

Freedom and Convenience

With the touch of a button, you have all the information you need about your fleet right at your fingertips—on an easy-to-use, secure Web application that lets you analyze the data through maps, graphs, lists, and charts.

More Value, Less Cost

KOMTRAX comes standard on most new construction models with FREE service (no monthly communication fees!) for the first 5 years. KOMTRAX has two important additional cost advantages: the possibility of a higher resale value on your machines and increased security, which may lead to reduced insurance costs. Your machines may have a higher value during resale or trade-in because KOMTRAX records maintenance item replacement history, actual working hours, and the operational load levels of your machine. And security features like geo-fencing and engine lock decrease the chances of loss from theft, which may also reduce insurance costs. Engine lock capabilities include the ability to prevent the machine from being started at anytime, set recurring daily lock periods, and set a “calendar lock,” which allows you to prevent startup between specific times and dates of the year (i.e., during the Thanksgiving holiday period).
