Komatsu America Corp. has introduced its new PC200LC-8, PC220LC-8 and PC600LC-8 hydraulic excavators, which are available through Linder Industrial Machinery Company’s 19 locations in Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina.
These machines are distinguished by enhancements in efficiency, information technology upgrades, improvements in operator comfort and new low emission engines that improve fuel consumption. These new excavators exemplify the Komatsu design concept of matching highly efficient engines and advanced hydraulic systems to provide productivity and low-cost operation, according to the manufacturer.
The PC220LC-8 has flywheel with 168 hp (125 kW) and an operating weight of 54,309 to 54,926 lbs. (24,634 to 24,914 kg) while the PC200LC-8 has a flywheel with 148 hp (110 kW) and an operating weight between 45,480 and 46,690 lbs. (20,629 to 26,178 kg). The PC600LC-8 has a flywheel with 386 hp (288 kW) and an operating weight between 126,320 and 132,280 lbs. (57,297 and 60,001 kg).
All three are equipped with the latest Komtrax technology, which enables the machine to send operating information to a secure Web site utilizing wireless technology. Hour meter, location, cautions and maintenance alerts — are relayed to the Web application for analysis.
The Komtrax fleet monitoring system increases machine availability, reduces the risk of theft, and allows for remote diagnosis by the distributor.
Special features include:
• Low emission engine results in reduced fuel consumption.
Both hydraulic excavators are equipped with the newly-developed, low emissions Komatsu SAA6D107E-1 engine that significantly reduces NOx emissions with an accurate multi-staged fuel injection system.
The PC220LC-8 engine meets EPA Tier III and EU stage 3A emission regulations; the PC200LC-8 is ready for these regulations.
Economy mode improves fuel consumption further, with an eco-gauge for energy-saving operations and an operator caution for extended idling.
The PC600LC-8 uses a Komatsu SAA6D140E-5 engine, which adopts a cooled exhaust gas recirculating system.
• Large multi-color monitor.
The 7-in. monitor enables accurate and smooth work and displays data in 10 languages for global support. The multi-function color monitor has a power mode, economy mode, lifting mode, breaker operation and attachment mode.
The automatic air conditioner also displays on the same monitor panel.
• Operator comfort.
Komatsu’s hydraulic excavator cab design gains reinforced strength from the pipe-structured cab framework. It improves operator protection in the event of tip or rollover and continues to offer high visibility.
An optional rear-view camera displays the image on the 7-in. monitor screen. Noise and vibration in the cab is significantly decreased and the highly pressurized cab also has an automatic air conditioner.
In addition, the seat and console are designed with console-mounted armrests that enable the operator to adjust for maximum comfort.
The PC600LC-8 has a spacious cab with automatic climate control. The multi-position pressure proportional control levers and multi-adjustable suspension seat allows the operator to work efficiently and comfortably
• Easy maintenance and lower operating costs.
These new hydraulic excavators are equipped with the equipment management monitoring system (EMMS) , which includes a maintenance function and trouble data memory function.
The machine controllers continually monitor machine condition before start up and during operation. Any abnormalities are immediately displayed. This smart monitor also notifies replacement time of oil and filters, and stores abnormalities for effective troubleshooting.
All of Komatsu’s conventional excavators come standard with the company’s high-pressure inline filters installed at each pump discharge port to provide added protection from hydraulic system contamination.
