Komatsu launches new excavator

Komatsu America has launched its new PC210LCi-11 machine control excavator.

This second-generation model adds machine-control-joystick functionality to the earlier PC210LCi-10 excavator.

The new machine is claimed to offer money-saving efficiency and automatic systems, combined with operator-friendly, machine-control-enabled joysticks. The technology offers up to a 63% improvement in excavating efficiency over a standard PC210LC-11 and traditional stake-plus-grade-checker methods.

“This excavator is productive and precise enough to be a fixture on jobsites from basement and foundation pads to utility work,” said Sebastian Witkowski, product marketing manager, Komatsu America. “In addition to the industry-leading efficiency all machine owners look for, the added convenience of the machine-control-joystick functionality should make operators happy too.”

Key features of the machine control technology include that it is factory installed and integrated into the base machine. Frequently-used machine-control functions are now located on the operator’s control lever for increased convenience and comfort. The PC210LCi-11 features full 3D capabilities, allowing it to dig to grade everywhere on the site. In terms of automation: GNSS satellite technology is tied into machine hydraulics to allow automation of work equipment functions. There is help for the operator from features such as minimum-distance bucket control, delivered using a 12.1” touchscreen display.

The PC210LCi-11 is covered by the Komatsu Care program for the first three years or 2,000 hours, whichever comes first.
