Simone Reddi, Komatsu Europe product manager for midi excavators, says: “This is not just a simple model update. The PC88MR-11 introduces several improvements in digging performances and structure. The whole dig-loading cycle is improved, increasing production, giving the feeling of a faster machine. Last but not least, this latest Komatsu midi excavator features the European debut of the brand new EU Stage V Komatsu 2.4 litre engine with KDPF (no SCR needed). Enjoy lower fuel consumption, higher performances and unrivalled efficiency.”
Other improvements include a redesigned blade for better dozing, the repositioning of the low/high gear switch for better ergonomics, and an automatic change-over valve for higher comfort when changing attachments, the manufacturer says.
