New Komatsu midi builds on ‘solid foundations’

KOMATSU has revealed its new PC88MR-11 midi excavator builds on the foundations of the PC88MR-10, with new features designed to boost productivity and reduce fuel consumption.

The model boasts a Stage V engine (50.7kW/68hp) and has a factory-fitted Lehnhoff Powertilt option.

Komatsu explained that a tight tail swing allows operators to concentrate on the work at hand without worrying about rear-swing impacts, and helps to make the PC88MR-11 a ‘versatile’ solution even in confined areas.

The manufacturer added that a redesigned blade offers better dozing, while an automatic change-over valve provides more comfort when changing attachments.

Simone Reddi, Komatsu Europe product manager for midi excavators, said, “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 litre engine with KDPF (no SCR needed). Enjoy lower fuel consumption, higher performances and unrivalled efficiency.”
