Komatsu America Corp. Launches a New Addition to the Dash 10 Excavator Series
Press release date: May 29, 2012
Rolling Meadows, IL-Komatsu America Corp. today introduced the PC210LC-10 hydraulic excavator. With a net horsepower of 158 hp (118 kW), the PC210LC-10 is powered by a Komatsu SAA6D107E-2 engine and is EPA Tier 4 Interim and EU Stage 3B emissions certified. Built upon a proven Tier 3 engine platform, Komatsu has leveraged its leadership in technology and innovation to design a more environmentally-friendly engine that increases power while decreasing fuel consumption.
The PC210LC-10 comes standard with the Komatsu Care(TM) complimentary factory maintenance program which covers all factory-scheduled maintenance for 2,000 hours or the first three years, whichever occurs first, whether the excavator is rented, leased or purchased.
With an operating weight of 52,036 pounds (23,603 kg), the PC210LC-10 features improved hydraulic efficiency, improved operator comfort, simplified maintenance to extend component life, and two counterweight options that maintain the lift capacity and stability of the previous model while also providing transportation flexibility.
The PC210LC-10 is equipped with the latest KOMTRAX® technology, which sends machine operating information to a secure website utilizing wireless technology. Data such as operating hours, machine location, maintenance notifications, out of area notifications, machine utilization and residual fuel levels are relayed to the web application for analysis. The KOMTRAX® fleet monitoring system monitors machine availability, reduces the risk of machine theft, allows for remote diagnosis by the distributor, and provides a wealth of other information to drive business efficiency.
Special features of the new PC210LC-10 include:
As a leader in hydraulic technology, Komatsu has developed a hydraulically actuated Komatsu Variable Geometry Turbocharger (KVGT) and Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve, resulting in better precision and air management as well as longer component life. The Komatsu Diesel Particulate Filter (KDPF) has an integrated design that does not interfere with daily operation yet keeps the operator aware of its status.
A new high resolution 7" LCD monitor features enhanced capabilities and displays information in 25 languages for global support. The operator can easily select up to five working modes of operation to match machine performance to the application. These working modes include Power Mode, Economy Mode, Heavy Lift Mode, Breaker Mode, and Attachment Mode. The new monitor panel also provides operational guidance, operational records, fuel consumption history, and utilization information while a standard rearview camera allows the operator to view directly behind the machine.
The machine is equipped with the exclusive Komatsu EMMS (Equipment Management Monitoring System) that has diagnostic features that give the operator and technicians greater monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities. EMMS also continuously monitors all critical excavator systems, tracks the preventative maintenance schedule and provides troubleshooting assistance to mechanics in order to minimize diagnosis and repair time.
Every Komatsu Tier 4 Interim construction machine comes standard with the Komatsu CARE(TM) complimentary factory scheduled maintenance program. Also included are two complimentary Komatsu Diesel Particulate Filter (KDPF) exchanges within the first 5 years.
