Increased bucket and lifting capacity

The Komatsu PC900-11 excavator is designed for heavy construction, demolition, material handling, deep sewer, water, large mass excavation, and mining/quarry applications.

It offers increased bucket and lifting capacity and higher performance compared to its predecessor model, with up to a 40 percent increase in productivity​, 25 percent more arm crowd force​, and 12 percent more swing torque​.

Based on the PC800LC-8, the PC900LC-11 offers major design enhancements compared to the earlier model. The new counterweight removal system helps make moving this large machine easier, and the boom configuration reduces transport height. A new service pass through area allows easy access to filters, oil level checks, and sample ports. The major structures, booms and arms, with a redesigned revolving frame, were engineered to increase longevity.

To help operators improve situational awareness, tools such as the KomVision camera system come standard on the PC900LC-11. KomVision is a 360-degree monitoring system that uses six cameras for a real-time view of the surroundings. Smart Construction 3D guidance and payload monitoring are other available options.

Another option, Smart Construction Retrofit, is a 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.
