Komatsu’s new PC88MR-11 excavator delivers productivity boost

The newly-introduced Komatsu PC88MR-11 midi excavator promises a 7 per cent increase in productivity with improved hydraulic flow, according to Carl Grundy, national sales manager for utility at Komatsu Australia.

Recently launched in Australia and New Zealand, the PC88MR-11 is designed for applications requiring tight-access capabilities such as excavation, rock work and utilities projects. Grundy highlights that despite its compact size, the machine delivers uncompromising performance and efficiency.

“We’ve made upgrades from the previous model, and [have] seen some great improvements in productivity, comfort and serviceability,” says Grundy. “In particular, we’ve made some improvements to the hydraulic flow that means greater productivity and fuel efficiency for operators.”

“The blade profile has also been redesigned, which makes backfilling and grading easier with this model.

“This model delivers 12 per cent greater attachment circuit hydraulic flow than the previous model with improvements to the auxiliary hydraulic system, which lets operators get the most out of their attachments for the different types of jobs.”

The PC88MR-11’s short tail swing and swing boom design make it ideal for navigating tight residential areas, while its compact size ensures easy transportation on equipment trailers between sites.

“We’ve also looked at the serviceability of the machine and how we can make that easier for customers,” says Grundy. “This model has three service access doors, including new doors at the rear of the machine, improving access for maintenance or repair.”

“The cab is also designed with the operator in mind, ensuring it’s a quiet and comfortable work environment and all the controls are easy to reach.”

The PC88MR-11 also comes standard with Komtrax, Komatsu’s state-of-the-art wireless monitoring system. “Komtrax gives owners and operators an easy way to track their machines, monitor their performance and stay up to date about the status of their equipment, saving time and maximising profits,” Grundy adds.

“The machine is backed by the service and support of our wide-reaching Komatsu branch network, meaning no matter where your jobsite is, our team is available to help with any issues.

“The previous model of the PC88MR was very popular, and we’re looking forward to rolling this newest model out to our customers.”
