Komatsu Europe: New PC170LC-10 Excavator
Komatsu Europe International N.V. has launched the PC170LC-10 excavator to the European market. This newest addition to Komatsu’s dash-10 series, with operating weights ranging from 17,280-18,220 kg., provides improved performance with up to 5% more lift capacity with a standard counterweight compared to the previous PC160LC-8.
The optional heavier counterweight provides up to 15% more lift capacity and is ideal for contractors looking for a more powerful lifting machine, embodying versatility with power for the widest range of applications in its class.
The PC170LC-10 offers a net 115HP at 2100 rpm, yet it is up to 10 percent more fuelefficient than its predecessor, depending on the application and conditions. This improved efficiency comes in part from a variable-flow turbocharger that provides optimal airflow under all speeds and load conditions.
The PC170LC-10 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.
