Graco Automatic Lubrication Systems Now Available as an Option on Several Komatsu® Lines of Equipment

Graco’s Lubrication Systems Increase Production, Longevity, and Operator Safety for Komatsu Equipment Owners

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 8, 2015-- Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG) announced today that its automatic lubrication system is now available as a factory option on a variety of Komatsu® America’s earth moving equipment. The automatic lubrication system features a G3 electric grease pump, MSP divider valves, and a GLC-2200 controller. The system is also available as an after-market field install kit. The kit includes all the core components along with the required hoses, fittings, mounting hardware, and protective guarding required for installation.

“Komatsu America is one of the most recognized brands in the industry and we are very proud that customers can now order Graco’s automatic lubrication system as a factory option,” said Gabe Elmhorst, Global OEM Account Manager, Graco Industrial Lubrication Equipment. “Graco’s automatic lubrication system was specifically designed for Komatsu’s wide range of equipment to reduce maintenance needs, extend the life of the machine by automatically applying the right amount of lubrication to reduce wear and tear, and reduce planned maintenance down time.”

In addition to extending the operational life of a machine, Graco’s automatic lubrication system reduces the amount of climbing an operator needs to do to access grease points.

“The field-installed after market kit offers all of the benefits of a factory-installed system and can be purchased for equipment already in operation,” continued Elmhorst. So whether you are considering a new machine, or simply want to extend the life of a machine already in service, Graco and Komatsu have you covered.”
