Komatsu Rental offers a large fleet of high-quality low-hour excavators, loaders, dump trucks, dozers and graders for hire throughout New Zealand. And as New Zealand’s only national OEM-backed rental operator you get all the benefits provided to Komatsu machine owners, including KOMTRAX and KOWA machine management reporting systems, and complete integration with our technical and service operations. Because of this, Komatsu Rental customers can enjoy the same level of support and peace of mind that is available to traditional Komatsu machine owners.

Whether you are an existing Komatsu owner looking for equipment on a short-term basis, a primary producer or quarry facing seasonal fluctuations, a contractor or plant hirer freeing up capital to develop your business, we have the rental machine to suit.



Why do Komatsu Rental customers in New Zealand hire plant and equipment rather than purchase it?

  • Rental is ideal to meet project specific requirements; for example, if an operation does not have the equipment for a specific short to medium term project, it can hire and then return.
  • A rental machine is an ideal substitute while an in-house machine is undergoing a rebuild or major overhaul.
  • Rental allows any operation to quickly meet an increase in project requirements
  • Rental allows increased operational flexibility.
  • Rental does not require capex and can be an off balance sheet solution allowing the customer to invest capital in fixed plant assets.
