Komatsu, which brought dozens of machines to Conexpo, showed its 20-ton PC210LCE electric excavator, especially for customers interested in reducing their carbon footprint and planning for the implementation of sustainable solutions through electrification.
First displayed last fall at bauma, the PC210LCE was created for customers that need a high-performance machine while cutting fuel costs. Featuring lithium-ion battery technology developed by Proterra, the excavator has 451 kWh of battery capacity, designed for up to eight hours of operating time. Designed to reduce operator fatigue with less noise, exhaust emissions and zero engine vibration, the PC210LCE can be used in urban areas and indoor environments. The low operating noise levels of the PC210LCE can allow for nighttime construction work both indoors and out.
Coming soon to North America, the PC210LCE supports Komatsu's global sustainability targets of 50-percent reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030 and complete carbon neutrality by 2050. Komatsu is committed to helping customers manage energy transitions and increase efficiencies to help reduce fuel burn and emissions.
At Conexpo, the PC210LCE was be displayed with Smart Construction Retrofit, an affordable guidance kit that gives operators in the field and managers in the office access to both 2D and 3D design and payload data to help drive accuracy, control load volumes and improve operations. Easily installed by a local Komatsu distributor, this technology upgrade is designed to improve grading performance and help drive productivity and profitability.
Additional products and solutions were highlighted at neighboring booths for Hensley Industries and Montabert, both Komatsu subsidiaries.
