New Technology Integrated

into Excavators


he world’s first intelligent Machine Control

excavator is launched by Komatsu with the

world premier of the PC210LCi-10 tracked


This new excavator features Komatsu’s exclusive

machine control and guidance system, fully inte-

grated with all other existing features.

With the exclusive control function, the opera-

tor will no longer worry about digging too deep or

damaging a target surface. From rough digging to

finish grading, the PC210LCi-10 excavator can dra-

matically improve efficiency, precision and safety

on the work site.

Mal McCoy, Product Manager for Hydraulic Ex-

cavators and intelligent Machine Control Products

said at the launch:

“This latest Komatsu technology is a

revolution in how hydraulic excavators will

be used in the coming years. The ability of the

PC210LCi-10 to achieve and maintain grade

with minimum effort from the operator is


Operating weights range from 22.620 kg -

23.480 kg, depending on the configuration, with

a net 123 kW (165 HP) @ 2.000 rpm. Other speci-

fications are identical to those for the Komatsu


Naturally, with such an intelligent machine it is

fully wired for the latest KOMTRAX technology

Automatic Real Time Digging


With the world’s first intelligent Machine Control

excavator, the bucket is automatically limited from

digging beyond the target surface.

The control function maintains grade automati-

cally, with real-time bucket edge positioning in rela-

tion to the machine and the job surface.

Status is instantly displayed on the full colour,

multi-function 12.1” control box monitor, eliminat-

ing the wait time associated with conventional sen-


The intelligent Machine Control excavator lets

the operator focus on moving material efficiently,

with no worry about digging too deep. The touch

screen control box monitor, makes grading easy and

accurate with a facing angle compass, a light bar

and audio guidance.

Information such as real-time “as-built” status,

a magnified fine grading view or a 3D bird view can

be displayed simultaneously.

By setting 3D design data on the control box

monitor, staking can be reduced or eliminated, as

can surveying and final inspection. Safety is greatly

improved, with less people needed on the job site

and near the machine.

Three Year Warranty

Keeping in step with trends emerging through more

and more manufacturers, the latest excavator and

the two new dozers are supported by Komatsu

CARE, a complimentary maintenance program for

Komatsu customers that comes as standard with

every new Komatsu EU Stage IIIB construction
