Komatsu Features 20-Ton PC210LCE Electric Excavator and intelligent Machine Control 2.0 Dozers

To help customers reduce their carbon footprint and plan for implementing sustainable solutions through electrification, at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 Komatsu will featured its 20-ton PC210LCE electric excavator.

First displayed last fall at bauma, the PC210LCE was created for construction businesses that need a high-performance machine while cutting fuel costs. Featuring lithium-ion battery technology developed by Proterra, the excavator has 451 kWh of battery capacity, designed for up to 8 hours of operating time.

Designed to reduce operator fatigue with less noise, exhaust emissions and zero engine vibration, the PC210LCE is ideal for use in urban areas and indoor environments. The low operating noise levels of the PC210LCE can allow for nighttime construction work both indoors and out.

Coming soon to North America, the PC210LCE supports Komatsu's global sustainability targets of 50 percent reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030 and complete carbon neutrality by 2050. Komatsu is committed to helping customers manage energy transitions and increase efficiencies to help reduce fuel burn and emissions. ​

At the show, the PC210LCE will be displayed with Smart Construction Retrofit, an affordable guidance kit that gives operators in the field and managers in the office access to both 2D and 3D design and payload data to help drive accuracy, control load volumes and improve operations. Easily installed by a local Komatsu distributor, this technology upgrade is designed to improve grading performance and help drive productivity and profitability.

intelligent Machine Control 2.0 Dozers
Productivity is key to job site success. And while each business is unique, the need for predictability is universal, which is why Komatsu featured three of its intelligent Machine Control 2.0 (iMC 2.0) dozers at CONEXPO-CON/AGG: the D39PXi-24, the D51PXi-24, and the D71PXi-24.

Today, when many companies are struggling to find experienced workers or train existing ones, on-machine technology like iMC 2.0 can streamline onboarding and help close the operator skills gap by allowing automation throughout the dozing process. Komatsu’s iMC 2.0 dozers help maximize efficiencies so operators – even newer operators – can deliver more precise production.

First introduced by Komatsu in 2013, iMC continues to evolve, offering more automated functions for increased precision and reduced waste. Intelligent machines help reduce emissions per amount of material moved because it’s “moved right” the first time.

Incorporating a host of advanced, proprietary machine technology, the Komatsu D39PXi-24 (105 HP), D51PXi-24 (131 HP) and the D71PXi-24 (237 HP) equipped with Komatsu’s iMC 2.0 offer the following benefits:

With “proactive dozing control”, even less experienced operators can automatically cut/strip from existing terrain. The dozer measures the terrain it tracks over and uses that data to plan the next pass. Productivity can improve by up to 60 percent compared to conventional grading methods.

“Lift layer control” automatically lets operators spread fill from existing terrain with the press of a button. The dozer measures the terrain it tracks over and uses the data it gathers to plan the next pass for up to double production with consistent layers for compaction quality.

“Tilt steering control” automatically tilts the blade to maintain straight travel during rough dozing, which can help reduce operator steering input by up to 80 percent.

With automatic dozing, rough cut to finish grade, iMC-equipped Komatsu dozers help make every pass count, for superior production compared to traditional aftermarket systems.
