Komatsu America Corp. releases its PC210LCi-11 hydraulic excavator. The second-generation unit adds machine-control-joystick functionality and is said to offer up to a 63-percent improvement in excavating efficiency over a PC210LC-11 and traditional stake-plus-grade-checker methods. Key features of intelligent machine control technology include: machine control function enabled joysticks, full 3D GNSS capabilities, work equipment automation, stroke sensing hydraulic cylinders and intelligent guidance. The excavator is covered by the Komatsu Care program for the first three years or 2,000 hours, whichever comes first.
