New Intelligent Excavator from Komatsu launched – PC210LCi

January 3, 2018

Second-Generation PC210LCi. New intelligent Machine Control excavator offers improved efficiency, joystick functionality.

When Komatsu first introduced intelligent Machine Control excavators, it started with a PC210LCi-10. Two years later, it brings the second generation to market with the PC210LCi-11 that leverages the proven track record of its pioneering predecessor while adding eagerly awaited machine-control-joystick functionality.

Like other Komatsu intelligent Machine Control excavators, the PC210LCi-11 has factory-integrated technology. It offers up to a 63-percent improvement in efficiency compared to a standard PC210LC-11 and traditional stake-plus-grade-checker method.

Reduced costs through work function automation

The PC210LCi-11 saves time and money by minimizing the need and expense of grading dozers and grade checkers, as well as the costs associated with overexcavating, such as extra materials, fuel and time.

The machine has full, 3-D Global Navigation Satellite System capabilities that are tied into machine hydraulics. This allows actual automation of work equipment functions, not just the indication/manual-only operation typically found in aftermarket systems.

Advanced features of the PC210LCi-11 include a facing-angle compass and minimum-distance bucket control that deliver in a simple, intuitive manner. It is also equipped with Auto Grade Assist and Auto Stop Control which contribute to the machine’s ability to effectively reach target elevation without over excavating.

“With increased productivity, jobs can be completed on-time, under budget and with less equipment,” said Sebastian Witkowski, Komatsu Product Marketing Manager.

“The PC210LCi-11 is productive and precise enough to be a fixture on jobsites ranging from basements and foundation pads to utility work. In addition to the efficiency that machine owners look for, the added convenience of the machine-control-joystick functionality should make operators happy, too.”
