The new Komatsu PC88MR-11 is built on the foundations of the PC88MR-10 but with a cleaner 50.7kW engine and faster work speeds. Simone Reddi, Komatsu Europe product manager for midi excavators, says: “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.”
Other improvements include a redesigned blade for better dozing, the repositioning of the low/high gear switch for better ergonomics, and an automatic change-over valve for higher comfort when changing attachments, the manufacturer says.
The PC88MR-11’s new features deliver a significant boost to productivity, reduced fuel consumption 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.
