‘THE BIGGEST THING ABOUT KOMATSU IS THEIR RELIABILITY’

 

 
- Paddy Kelly, Dereen Concrete
 
 
Dereen Concrete – whose name is derived from the townland that divides the journey between the Co. Limerick villages of Castleconnell and Montpelier - is a sand and gravel quarry company whose production is used across a wide spectrum of building materials and applications.
 
A premium supplier of high quality and carefully selected aggregate materials, the Dereen Concrete product range comprises quality stone, sand and gravel used for commercial, residential, agricultural and environmental applications. 
 
 
It encompass sands, soils, building and plastering sand, pitch and horse arena sand, batched aggregate, drainage stone, sub and top soil, road base, gravels and more.
 
 
It supplies sand for concrete production, block making, plastering, bricklaying and a host of other building applications including stones and chips used for drainage and foundation laying and top soil used for laying sports fields and in landscape developments.
 
Owned and managed by the genial Paddy Kelly, Dereen Concrete has been a loyal Komatsu user ever since the day, in the 1990s, when they bought their first Komatsu - a previously owned WA500-3. ‘We worked that machine for six years and it never missed a beat’ Paddy commented.
 
‘After that, we bought a WA400-5 and a WA480-5 before upgrading to our current fleet which comprises a WA470-7 wheel loader (the first in Ireland), a WA470-6 wheel loader and a 240PC excavator’ he said.  
 
‘The biggest thing about Komatsu is their reliability. They never put a foot wrong. They have oodles of power. But this new 470-7 really raises the bar with its power, speed over the ground, super hydraulics, fuel usage and comfort. I would nearly classify them as perfect.’
