Germany: Komatsu Presents New Excavator at Bauma
Komatsu Europe International presented the new PC138US-10 short tail swing hydraulic excavator at the Bauma 2013 International Fair With an operating weight range of 13,400 – 14,467 kg, the PC138US-10’s short tail swing radius makes it an ideal machine for confined work areas such as one lane of traffic or urban environments.
The EPA Tier 4 Interim / EU Stage 3B emissions (S3B) certified machine is the newest addition to Komatsu’s Dash-10 excavator line up.
Designed with the customer in mind, the PC138US-10 has a net horsepower of 93.5 hp (69.7 kW), powered by a Komatsu SAA4D95LE-6 engine. Built upon its proven Stage IIIA engine platform, Komatsu has leveraged its leadership in technology and innovation to design a more environmentally-friendly engine that maintains the proven performance of the previous series while reducing daily costs and fuel consumption.
The PC138US-10 features improved hydraulic efficiency, improved operator comfort, and simplified maintenance, yet retains the versatility and performance of the previous model.
Lift capacity and stability are comparable to a conventional excavator, but uses a contoured cab design that allows the cab to swing within the same swing radius as the counterweight.
