Komatsu America Corp. introduces the PC238USLC-11 hydraulic excavator. Equipped with a Tier 4 Final engine and a new viscous fan clutch, engine parasitic loads are now lower, resulting in productivity gains of up to 4 percent over the previous model. The excavator is available with Komatsu’s new KomVision system, a bird’s-eye-view camera system that combines input from three cameras into a surround-view image of the machine and its surroundings to provide better situational awareness for the operator. The unit is powered by a SAA6D107E-3 167-net horsepower engine. Maintenance accessibility has been improved through new monitor panels and machine design. A new operator ID system provides telematics data to track operators, applications, and machine operations for up to 100 individual ID codes.
