Komatsu’s new machine is built for big dirt, rock and quarry applications and ideal for loading 30-40 ton articulated and rigid dump trucks, the company says.
The new PC650LC-11 hydraulic excavator. With an operating weight between 140,456 lbs (63,710 kg) and 145,284 lbs (65,900 kg), the PC650LC-11 maintains the powerful productivity and transportability of the previous model, while improving fuel efficiency, cab design, and serviceability.
Additionally, the PC650LC-11 is equipped with Komtrax technology. Data such as fuel levels, diesel exhaust fluid levels, operating hours, location, cautions and maintenance alerts are relayed to the web application for analysis.
A new operator identification system provides up to 100 ID codes which can be used to track and report on key machine operating information for various applications, operators or jobs. A new Auto Idle Shutdown function helps reduce idle time as well as operating costs.
“The PC650LC-11 is matched perfectly for high-production loading of 30-40 ton trucks, and well suited for deep sewer and water trenching applications,” said Justin Lantin, product marketing manager, Komatsu America.
“It is also designed to accommodate flexible job operations that require frequent transportation with reduced time required for disassembly,” Lantin said.
