Komatsu's PC900LC-11 is built for tough jobs that require high performance.

Counterweight removal system makes moving this large machine easier

March 14, 2023 — Built for tough jobs that require high performance, the Komatsu PC900LC-11 excavator is a versatile machine. Designed for heavy construction, demolition, material handling, deep sewer, water, large mass excavation and mining/quarry, the 842 HP PC900LC-11 will be featured in Komatsu's booth (W42044) at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023. 

Taking productivity to a new level, the PC900LC -11 offers increased bucket and lifting capacity and higher performance with: 

  • Up to a 40% increase in productivity
  • 25% more arm crowd force
  • 12% more swing torque

Based on the notably reliable and durable PC800LC-8, the PC900LC-11 offers major design enhancements compared to the earlier model. The new counterweight removal system helps make moving this large machine easier, and the boom configuration reduces transport height. A new service pass through area allows easy access to filters, oil level checks and sample ports. The major structures, booms and arms, with a redesigned revolving frame, were engineered to increase longevity.

To help operators improve situational awareness, tools such as the KomVision camera system come standard on the PC900LC-11. KomVision is a 360-degree monitoring system that uses six cameras for a real-time view of the surroundings. Smart Construction 3D guidance and payload monitoring are other available options.

At the show, the PC900LC-11 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. 

With the right products, latest technologies, actionable data and dealer support, Komatsu and its customers can create value together. To learn more, visit Komatsu at CONEXPO 2023 at booth W42044. Additional products and solutions will be highlighted at neighboring booths for Hensley Industries (W42028), and Montabert (W42229), both Komatsu subsidiaries.
