Komatsu America introduces its PC160LC-8 hydraulic excavator, which is designed to deliver maximum digging force with fuel economy in tough digging conditions. With an operating weight of 36,770 to 37,740 pounds, it is powered by a Komatsu SAA4D107E-1 engine. The electronically controlled high-pressure common-rail fuel injection system is EPA Tier-3 certified and provides low-noise operation.
The PC160LC-8 is equipped with the latest KOMTRAX technology (Level 3), which sends machine operating information to a secure website using wireless technology. Data such as operating hours, location, cautions and maintenance alerts are relayed to the web application for analysis. In addition, a 7-inch LCD monitor enables accurate smooth work and displays data in 10 languages for global support.
“The new LCD monitor panel is standard equipment,” says Doug Morris, product manager, hydraulic excavators, Komatsu America Corp. “This 7-inch color monitor panel features improved attachment flow control with password protection, Komatsu's Equipment Management Monitoring System, which is an advanced diagnostics system, and displays the image from the standard rearview camera.”
There are five modes of operation that may be selected through the monitor panel: power mode, economy mode, lifting mode, breaker mode and attachment mode. The monitor panel also displays the automatic air conditioner, machine maintenance tracking and the image from the standard, counterweight-mounted rearview camera system.
