Komatsu Europe International introduced the new HB215LC-2 hybrid hydraulic excavator to the European market.
This is a third generation hybrid model, with an increased operating weight of 22.550 kg and a bucket capacity of 1.68 m³.
Yoshihiro Kobayashi, product manager for hybrid excavators at Komatsu Europe, said: “The new HB215LC-2 will now provide Komatsu customers with an even higher fuel economy. Actual savings will depend on the application, and fuel efficiency is particularly high when operating the excavator with hydraulic attachments. We estimate that the extra investment into a Komatsu hybrid machine can typically be recovered in two years or less.”
The HB215LC-2 is supported by Komatsu CARE, a complimentary maintenance program for Komatsu customers that comes as standard with every new Komatsu EU Stage 3B construction machine.
