By On-Site Staff   



Komatsu is bringing more horsepower to its hydraulic excavator lineup. The company has introduced its PC2000-11 that’s designed to load 70- to 200-ton rigid frame haul trucks up to 12 per cent faster than previous models.

Equipped with an EPA Tier 4 Final certified engine and a new engine-pump control, the excavator is built for faster cycle times and improved multifunction performance. With thicker and stronger boom plates and castings; stronger track and center frames; as well as larger diameter carrier rollers, it’s also designed to take on the most abrasive tasks.

“The PC2000-11 is designed to load 70- to 200-ton rigid frame haul trucks and is an excellent tool for stripping overburden, loading coal, and loading shot rock,” Robert Hussey, product marketing manager at Komatsu America, said in a release. “The PC2000-11 has a simplified power module (cooling package, engine, PTO, and hydraulic pumps) which provides excellent accessibility to major components, low noise levels in the cab, and reduces labor hours when it comes time for planned overhaul.”

Within the cab, Komatsu has focused on operator comfort with a large capacity air conditioning system and improved visibility.
