A new series of MR-5 mini excavators is on the way from Komatsu later this year.

The new PC18MR-5, PC22MR-5, PC26MR-5 and PC58MR-5 mini excavators are due for introduction to the European market in the second half of 2020.

The range-topping PC58MR-5, a five-tonner, is pictured above.

The all-new Stage V emissions compliant MR-5 range replaces the old MR-3 product line. They all come with Komatsu’s Komtrax monitoring system as standard.

Operating weights range from 1820 kg for the PC18MR-5 (canopy version - pictured below) to 5640 kg for the PC58MR-5.

Sales features include a seat belt indicator, an easily accessible secondary shut down switch and protected PPC levers.

Factory-fit options include fingertip proportional controls and a hydraulic quick coupler line.

Simone Reddi, Komatsu Europe product manager for mini excavators, says: “The MR-5 range concentrates the quality and performance of the larger Komatsu construction range into a compact package, and with a unique design concept the Komatsu MR-5 excavators are sure to stand out on jobsites across Europe.”
