While equipment built to accommodate urban environments, by generating less noise, vibrations and emission, became more common, super sized equipment that could withstand harsh working conditions in places like giant mines were also developed.
This was the overhead lighting equipment with a light projector that could work at facilities without a night light device. It was built based on LW250.
Though it may look like a simple machine at a glance, it was very difficult to attach the light projector to a 12-tatami-mat space in a way that was stable enough not to move around under strong wind.
This equipment was very useful at night games of Japan Soccer League and ski jump competitions at the Nagano Winter Olympic in 1988.
There were other construction machines built by Komatsu over the years. We can see how the various designs mirrored different eras if we look at them set against the flow of history.
