Komatsu Will Display the Updated PC88MR-11 Midi Excavator at Intermat

At Intermat, Komatsu will showcase its PC88MR-11 midi excavator, built on the solid foundations of the PC88MR-10. The PC88MR-11’s new features deliver a significant boost to productivity, reduced fuel consumption and faster work equipment speed.

Environmental concerns are growing, and urban areas are becoming increasingly sensitive to emissions. The PC88MR-11’s low consumption and powerful EU Stage V engine (50.7 kW / 68hp) provides customers with the opportunity to participate in any tender, demonstrate environmental credentials, and future-proof their investment.

A tight tail swing lets the operator concentrate on the work at hand, with no worry about rearswing impacts, and helps to make the PC88MR-11 a versatile solution, ideal even in confined areas.

The external design is also improved with an all-new MR-11 cutting-edge styling. The new PC88MR-11 offers first-class operator comfort, smart safety initiatives, intuitive ergonomics, huge advances in performance and controllability, easy serviceability, peace of mind through a proven Komatsu aftertreatment system, and the highest levels of standard specifications in the industry.

The operators will find improvements everywhere: a redesigned blade for better dozing, the repositioning of the low/high gear switch for better ergonomics, or an automatic change-over valve for higher comfort when changing attachments. This will be appreciated by current and new users alike.

“This is not just a simple model update. The PC88MR-11 introduces several improvements in digging performances and structure. The whole dig-loading cycle is improved, increasing production, giving the feeling of a faster machine. Last but not least, this latest Komatsu midi excavator features the European debut of the brand new EU Stage V Komatsu 2.4 liter engine with KDPF (no SCR needed). Enjoy lower fuel consumption, higher performances and unrivalled efficiency.”

said Simone Reddi, Komatsu Europe Product Manager for midi excavators.
