PC130-11 provides customers fast loading cycles and high productivity

Chicago, June 18, 2020 — For contractors looking for an excavator for utility work or small construction jobs, the Komatsu PC130-11 fits the bill. With an operating weight of 28,660 lb (13,000 kg), it can be more easily transported on a tag trailer without permits.

"The versatility of our PC130-11 makes it a great excavator for customers looking for an entry-level excavator with Komatsu durability and reliability," said Andrew Earing, product marketing manager, Komatsu. “It can be a real workhorse as your business expands and grows."

The 97.2 HP (72.5 kW) conventional tail swing PC130-11 provides customers with fast loading cycles and high productivity. With steel castings in the boom foot, boom nose, and arm tip, the PC130-11 offers long-term durability.

The PC130-11 has 12% lower fuel consumption than the previous model and its auto-idle shut down function can be set to automatically stop the engine after a preset amount of idle time. The fuel-saving viscous fan clutch also reduces engine load when maximum cooling is not needed.

Operators can choose from six working modes to optimize productivity and fuel efficiency and the PC130-11’s high performing hydraulic flow and stick digging force optimize machine productivity. Its large one-piece hood and ground level daily checks make it easy to service.

Whether rented, leased or purchased, the PC130-11 is covered by the Komatsu CARE complimentary maintenance program for the first three years or 2000 hours, whichever comes first.
