On March 14, Road Machinery & Supplies Co. hosted an iMC Demo Day at Extreme Sandbox in Hastings, Minn., with 62 customers from 26 companies attending.

Komatsu iMC machines available for operation included the PC210LCi-11 and PC490LCi-11 hydraulic excavators and the D51PXi-24 and D65PXi-18 crawler dozers featuring Komatsu's GPS integrated machine control (iMC).

Komatsu's iMC technology leads to significantly increased productivity in many applications over comparable size machines without iMC and machines with traditional GPS controls.

In addition to the iMC machines, customers could operate a Komatsu HM300-5 articulated haul truck and WA480-8 wheel loader, a Morooka MST1500VDR rubber track carrier, and an AMS GT104 track screen.
