Lubricants & Coolants

Lubricants

Komatsu Genuine Lubricants are engineered to the same high specifications you’ve come to expect from your Komatsu equipment. Made from premium base stocks blended with unique additives, these oils are designed to provide superior performance in all Komatsu machines. By using Komatsu Genuinefluids and filters, you can assure maximum fluid life and protection, thereby lowering your maintenance costs and long term operating costs.  Many Komatsu Genuine lubricants can also be used in non-Komatsu equipment and gain many of the same benefits.  Always consult your machine service and maintenance manual for proper application and change interval.  Your Komatsu distributor can provide you with the proper filters and fluids for your equipment, including specialty applications.

Komatsu Gear Lubricants are recommended for add or fill in:

  • All Komatsu equipment applications where a gear lubricant is recommended
  • Manual transmissions
  • Differential
  • Final drives
  • Truck rear axles
  • Passenger car rear axles\Agricultural, truck, industrial and construction equipment transmissions where GL-5 type lubricants are permitted.

Features & Benefits

  • Extreme pressure properties to protect hypoid and other gear types from scuffing and wear
  • High temperature stability
  • Longer fluid life
  • Sludge control / cleaner gears and transmissions
  • Available in 80W-90 and 85W-140 
 

Grease

Komatsu grease receives some of the highest industry ratings for load-carrying ability and adherence to components in the most severe conditions

Komatsu Hyper Grease G2-TE is the ultimate lubricant for performance challenging on and off highway environments. Komatsu Hyper Grease G2-TE’s unique multifunctional solid lubricant additive builds tack and adhesion when exposed to water saturated environments. Not only does Komatsu Hyper Grease G2-TE resist softening and washing out, it grows in tack and adhesion with continued exposure.

In high temperature environments, film strength is increased between metal surfaces, and the affinity for metal surfaces is enhanced. This produces a slippery physical barrier of protection. Komatsu Hyper Grease G2-TE’s enhanced load carrying ability is coupled with dramatic oxidative characteristics and high temperature structural stability for exceptional performance in heavily loaded bearings. Its environmental impact is reduced by not including Antimony, Barium, Lead, or Chlorinated Compounds. 

Features & Benefits

  • Enhanced extreme pressure and anti-wear performance
  • Bearing life greatly improved
  • Extended equipment life
  • Unique multifunctional, non-staining solid film lubricant
  • Better adhesion with improved mobility
  • Increased tack in the presence of water
  • Optimal off-highway and industrial performance for equipment durability
  • Excellent shear stability and very stable at high temperatures
  • Dependable performance under varying conditions for reduced maintenance costs

Coolants

Coolant selection has significant implications. The life of your engine and radiator heavily depends on which coolant you select. It is important to use genuine products to provide long life protection from corrosion, cavitation, and other possible problems. Komatsu Super Coolant is designed with advanced technology which provides superior protection to all parts of the cooling system.

It is specially formulated to meet the high expectations and superior quality standards of Komatsu. It is enhanced with special additives for heavy-duty construction and mining machinery. It is a non-amine/non-nitrite type high-performance coolant that satisfies Komatsu Engineering Standards (KES).

Komatsu Super Coolant will not cause harm to any parts in the engine system such as hoses, seals, etc. It does NOT contain nitrites, silicates, or borates which are known to cause harm to various parts in the engine systems and can cause serious engine performance issues such as gelling and deposits.

Furthermore, Komatsu Super Coolant does not require a corrosion resistor, allowing a cost savings by eliminating it from the system. It extends your coolant change interval (see owner’s manual for details). Using genuine coolants provided by Komatsu helps you have fewer cooling systems problems and maintenance issues, resulting in less down time.
