May 4, 2021

The Komatsu PC5500-11 excavator has a bucket capacity between 29 and 38 cubic yards. Operating weight ranges between 1,183,882 and 1,194,905 pounds, and it is powered by two Tier 4-F engines for 1,880 horsepower. 

The excavator’s 45-degree ladder system enhances ascent and descent, and the updated emergency exit system allows egress from two locations. KomVision can also provide the operator an expansive view of the surrounding work area from inside the cab.

Komatsu also offers a variety of buckets―customized in volume and protection. A cold weather kit or additional cooler options are available to fit global terrain requirements. Komatsu’s trackpad options can also cover specific underground requirements, such as tar sands or hard rock.

The PC5500-11’s newly revamped monitoring system, Komtrax Plus 2, helps create automated data reports that identify performance opportunities. Machine data is accessible via satellite for instant monitoring. The optional Komatsu Argus Payload Meter helps enhance efficiency of truck loading and fleet dispatch. Information about the bucket loading status compared to the truck’s capacity provides data to help calculate the best loading times and truck passes.
