Komatsu adds to MR-5 range of mini-excavators

THE new Komatsu PC24MR‐5 mini-excavator has been added to the manufacturer’s MR‐5 range.

Described as being ‘powerful and versatile’, and boasting the latest EU Stage V engines, the MR‐5 new generation range builds on the MR-3 product line.

The PC24MR-5 has an operating weight of 2,430kg (cab version), a maximum digging depth of 2,615mm and maximum digging reach of 4,500mm.

The KOMTRAX monitoring system comes as standard, while the compact undercarriage at a width of 1,450mm allows easier access in confined areas.

Safety features of the MR-5 range include a seat belt indicator, secondary shut down switch and protected PPC levers. The range also benefits from Komatsu-designed and developed factory-fit options such as fingertip proportional controls and a hydraulic quick coupler line.

Simone Reddi, Komatsu Europe product manager for mini-excavators, said, “The MR-5 range concentrates the quality and performance of the larger Komatsu construction range into a compact package, and with a unique design concept the Komatsu MR-5 excavators are sure to stand out on jobsites across Europe.

“The PC24MR-5 is positioned to combine with the PC26MR-5 to form a strong 2-model attack strategy in this all-important segment that requires high performance and easy transport.”
