Komatsu PC490LCi-11 Quick Tips Introduction
Rolling Meadows, Ill., May 25, 2016 – Komatsu America Corp., a leading global heavy equipment manufacturer, today introduced the new PC490LCi-11 hydraulic excavator, the largest 3D semi-automatic construction-sized excavator available today.
“Many of our customers have been enjoying the precision, versatility and efficiency of the PC210LCi-10, and have been asking us to scale intelligent machine control technology to a larger-sized excavator. The wait is over – the PC490LCi-11 is here,” said Jason Anetsberger, Komatsu America senior product manager. “Whether you are mass excavating, trenching, or fine grading, the PC490LCi-11 will help increase productivity and efficiency, while removing the burden and worry of over excavation. All the operator has to worry about is keeping the bucket full. Komatsu delivers maximum productivity and accuracy, from first to last pass, straight to grade.” Anetsberger said.
Intelligent Machine Control features a unique sensor package, including stroke sensing hydraulic cylinders, an IMU sensor, and GNSS antennas. The machine utilizes 3D design data loaded into the machine’s monitor to accurately display machine position relative to target grade. When the bucket reaches the target surface, automation kicks in to limit over excavation.
