Komatsu has released the upgraded PC130LC-11 excavator with a longer undercarriage design. The excavator also features increased lifting capacity by up to 20% compared to the previous model. This 97.2-hp tail swing excavator offers a combination of lightweight power and agility on construction sites.
"The upgraded PC130LC-11 excavator can easily handle a wide variety of utility work or small construction jobs," said Andrew Earing, director, tracked products, Komatsu. "It provides a versatile workhorse for you as your business expands and grows."
The PC130LC-11 uses up to 12% less fuel than the previous model (PC130-8). Fuel consumption on this excavator can also be reduced with the auto idle shutdown feature that can be set to automatically stop the engine after a preset amount of idle time. The Komatsu diesel oxidation catalyst (KDOC) helps reduce particulate matter by using passive regeneration over 98% of the time.
Operating weight is 28,440-29,101 lbs and bucket capacity is 0.34-0.78 yd3.
Komatsu excavators offer multifunction motions, bucket movements and lifting capabilities. On the updated PC130LC-11, high hydraulic pressures support high arm and bucket digging forces. For long-term durability, steel castings in the boom foot, boom nose and arm tip help spread working loads away from high-stress areas.
The large one-piece hood, ground-level grease points, engine oil and fuel filters provide service access for this upgraded excavator.
