Power Motive Corp, a Komatsu distributor based in Denver, Colo., attended a Komatsu product launch event in late 2014 at the Komatsu Training Center Facility in Cartersville, Ga.

Several Power Motive Corp. representatives and other U.S. Komatsu dealers got an up close and personal first-hand look at the new Komatsu PC210LCi-10 intelligent machine control excavator.

In addition to showcasing its new excavator, Komatsu also provided attendees with other activities throughout the event.

The PC210LCi-10 features Komatsu’s machine control and guidance technologies, built upon the successful foundation of the standard Komatsu PC210LC-10 excavator. From rough digging to finish grading, the PC210LCi-10 excavator offers improved efficiency and accuracy over traditional methods, according to the company.

“The PC210LCi-10 represents a huge leap forward by bringing automation features to excavators,” said Jason Anetsberger, product manager of intelligent machine control. “Thanks to the exclusive semi-automatic control function, customers will unearth their productivity and operators can focus on moving material while the machine semi-automatically protects the target surface.”

Innovative: Automatic Real Time Digging Control

The bucket of the world’s first intelligent machine control excavator is semi-automatically limited from digging beyond the target surface.

The control function also semi-automatically follows the design surface allowing for accurate finish grading, with real-time bucket edge positioning in relation to the machine and the job surface.

Integrated: Standard Factory Installed Integrated Machine Control System

Factory installed, Komatsu’s fully integrated intelligent machine control system includes GNSS antennas, stroke-sensing hydraulic cylinders for the boom, arm and bucket plus an IMU (inertial measurement unit), for precise real time bucket edge positioning. Status is instantly displayed on the full color, multi-function 12.1 in. control box monitor, eliminating the wait time associated with conventional sensors.

Customer Peace-of-Mind

Is Standard

Both the base machine and intelligent machine control technologies are fully supported by specially trained distributor-based technology solutions experts. Every customer who purchases a PC210LCi-10 has the support of Komatsu intelligent machine control certified personnel.

To further reduce owning and operating costs, Komatsu CARE complimentary scheduled maintenance is standard on all PC210LCi-10 excavators for three years or 2,000 hours (whichever occurs first).
