Upgraded PC130LC-11 excavator increases lifting capacity while remaining highly portable for use in a variety of applications
Looking for an excavator that can help complete jobs faster? Easily transported from job to job, Komatsu’s newly upgraded PC130LC-11 increases lifting capacity by up to 20%, compared to the previous model.
“The new PC130LC-11 has a longer undercarriage with 8% more track length, which provides greater stability and increased operating weight,” said Nathaniel Waldschmidt, Komatsu Product Manager. “The result is increased lifting capacity both over the front and side. The upgraded PC130LC-11 can easily handle a wide variety of utility work or small construction jobs.”
With fast cycle times, seamless multifunction motions, and exacting bucket movements for high productivity, the PC130LC-11 uses up to 12% less fuel, compared to the PC130-8. To further reduce fuel usage, the excavator also features auto idle shutdown, which stops the engine after a preset amount of time.
Its operating weight of 28,440 to 29,101 pounds makes the PC130LC-11 highly portable, and users can move it with a tag trailer and still have capacity to spare for additional support equipment.
“Mobility remains a clear asset,” said Waldschmidt. “When a contractor finishes one job, they can easily load the PC130LC-11 and quickly be on their way to the next job site. When they get there, it’s a matter of minutes to unload and start working, so it maximizes productivity.”
Steel castings in the boom foot, boom nose and arm tip provide durability. The large one-piece hood, ground-level grease points, engine oil, and fuel filters provide quick-and-easy service access. Plus, high hydraulic pressures help optimize high arm and bucket digging forces.

Waldschmidt concluded, “We encourage anyone who’s looking for a smaller conventional tail swing excavator that’s proven to get the job done to contact their distributor for additional information and to set up a demo.”
