Dealers ***, small and under funded. The stronger dealers have multiple lines. The product is average with much needed upgrades.

TUSK = 'Truck Used to Say Kalmar,
I kninda think the "going away" of the TUSK-Kalmar/AC brands and dealerships may have had something to do with it, I think that may have had as much to do with the overall decline in Komatsu units sold as the quality of product/service.

Those lists are mostly just guesses anyway. Did Komatsu ever publish results from forklift division? They are public company but I dont think forklift division ever was that big
