New Komatsu PC900LC-11 excavator delivers increased productivity, greater versatility and better transportability
Can a large excavator provide versatility? Built for tough jobs and the ability to handle multiple applications, Komatsu’s new 543-horsepower PC900LC-11 can answer with an enthusiastic “yes,” according to Casey Zbinden, Product Marketing Manager, Komatsu.
“The PC900LC-11 is ideal for those working in applications that involve moving large amounts of material efficiently,” said Zbinden. “Productivity was a major driver of the machine’s design. It’s a mass excavator with the ability to handle a wide variety of jobs and materials and perform compound operations faster. It has a lot of key features that make it a major step-up from its predecessor.”
Designed for heavy construction, demolition, material handling, deep sewer, water, large mass excavation, and quarries/mining, the PC900LC-11 provides increased bucket and lifting capacity for higher performance compared to its predecessor, the PC800LC-8. Major structures, booms and arms as well as a redesigned revolving frame were engineered for increased durability.
The PC900LC-11 can deliver*:
- Up to a 40% increase in productivity
- 25% more arm crowd force
- 12% more swing torque
3.7-8.0 cu. yd.
KomVision is standard
To help operators improve situational awareness, the KomVision camera monitoring system is standard on the PC900LC-11. KomVision uses four cameras for a real-time view of the machine’s surroundings. Smart Construction 3D guidance and payload monitoring options are also available.
A new optional counterweight removal system helps improve transportability. The boom configuration reduces the excavator’s transport height, and it does not have to be removed from the machine before transportation. The service pass-through area allows easy access to filters, oil level checks, and sample ports to simplify maintenance.
“The excavator is designed for mobility, and customer feedback on that has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Zbinden. “They also appreciate the centralized service points for daily maintenance checks and convenient access to the engine compartment. We encourage anyone with the need for a large, versatile excavator to check it out.”
