Features and benefits

Safeguard your operators and work site

Operator and work site safety are a priority. Komatsu hydraulic excavators have an LED screen to give your operator a 360-degree view, each meet ISO 10262, 6394, 10263-4 safety stand-ards, and all include anti-slip gratings, easy ingress/egress and an innovative emergency es-cape system.

Customized to your operation

While Komatsu shovels and backhoes meet the density benchmark of 1.8 t/m³, you have the option to customize your machine to the bucket size and wear package you need, and choose your heating/cooling systems, travel gear protections, special track pad variations and more.

Sustainable, powerful engines

Tier 4 engines deliver plenty of power with outstanding sustainability. An exhaust after-treatment system reduces particulate matter, sulfur oxides and dangerous NOx, and easy servicing of emissions components.

The choice for your biggest jobs

Whether in shovel or backhoe configuration, the PC8000 is designed to deliver the highest pro-duction from trucks 240 tons and higher. With up to a 42m3 bucket available, it has the potential to give your mining operation a significant productivity boost.

Hydraulic system

The power train consists of two main drives. Each of the two gearboxes drives four identical main pumps which draw hydraulic oil from an unpressurized hydraulic tank. Open circuit hydraulics provide maximum cooling and filtering efficiency.

Main hydraulic pumps  8 identical swash plate pumps 
Main hydraulic flow per pump  1 035 L/min
Hydraulic pressure (all circuits)  310 bar
Swing flow rate  2 070 L/min
High pressure screens  200 microns 

The four-circuit systems feature a load-limiting governor with oil delivery summation to the working circuits and incorporates pressure cut-off control. Hydropilot prioritizes hydraulic flow giving smooth hydraulic response, simple hydraulic system layout, and a reduced number of components. The hydraulic system includes large swing-out vertical air-to-oil hydraulic coolers with temperature-regulated hydraulically driven fans.

Komtrax Plus Health Monitoring System

The Komtrax Plus monitoring system is designed for Komatsu mining equipment to provide real time and stored information about the operating status of the machine. Fault messages are immediately available to the operator via a digital display and in the event of critical malfunctions the engine is also shut down. The digital storage provides failure summary and analysis, which can be down loaded by laptop computer. This data will assist in predicting or reduction downtime. Optionally available is Orbcomm satellite transmission (check for availability in your territory).
