Komatsu introduces new PC210

30 Aug 12 New from Komatsu is the PC210/LC-10 hydraulic crawler excavator, boasting reduced fuel consumption, increased lifting capacity and an improved operator environment.

Weighing in at up to 23,480 kg, the PC210/LC-10 is powered by Komatsu’s SAA6D107E-2 engine with a flywheel horsepower of 165 hp (123 kW), and is EU Stage IIIB / EPA Tier 4 Interim (S3B) emission certified.

Already familiar on the Dash 8 excavator range, Komatsu’s hydraulically actuated Komatsu variable geometry turbocharger (KVGT) and exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve are now incorporated into the new S3B engines, resulting in up to 10% reduction in fuel consumption, with longer component life, the manufacturer claims.

An increase in counterweight mass of approximately 500kg gives the PC210/LC-10 up to 10% more lifting power and provides greater lateral stability than the equivalent Dash 8 generation. An operator-selectable Lift Mode is provided to raise the hydraulic pressure and for maximum lifting force and steady machine control.

A new high resolution 7-inch LCD monitor has new functions. The operator can select from six working modes to match machine performance to the application. These include Power Mode, Economy Mode, Heavy Lift Mode, Breaker Mode, Attachment Power Mode and the new Attachment Economy Mode.

The new monitor panel also provides operational guidance, an Economy gauge adjustable to match desired fuel consumption level, operational records, detailed fuel consumption history, and utilisation information, while a standard rear view camera lets the operator see directly behind the machine. An optional side mounted camera is also available to further increase the operator’s worksite confidence and productivity.

There is also an iPod socket.
