On July 15, Pine Bush Equipment and Komatsu hosted a technical information seminar and equipment demonstration for Komatsu’s bulldozers and excavators equipped with intelligent machine control. The event was held at Darling Sand and Gravel’s facility in Clinton Corners, N.Y. Darling Sand and Gravel is owned and operated by Ed Kading, whose skills with an excavator are featured on the Animal Planet reality TV show “The Pool Master.”

The intelligent machine control (IMC) is Komatsu’s new fully integrated grade control system. Komatsu’s grade control system is the first in the industry to roll off the factory assembly lines completely integrated into the design and build of the machine, according to the manufacturer. There are no GPS antennas and no coiled up cables that run between the machine and the blade; the Komatsu system offers fully automated operation whether dealing with a rough grade or a finished grade.

This system is available in a variety of sizes in the Komatsu dozer lineup.

Komatsu also took advantage of this event to introduce the PC210LCi-10, the world’s first intelligent machine control excavator. This machine offers Komatsu’s machine control and guidance system fully integrated. The exclusive control function lets the operator focus on moving materials efficiently with no concerns about digging too deep or damaging the targeted surface, according to the manufacturer.
