Featuring a Tier 3 engine, the Komatsu PC308USLC-3 short-tail-swing excavator has a flywheel horsepower of 187. It weighs between 70,682 to 73,146 pounds and has a bucket capacity range of 0.76 to 2.13 cubic yards. The machine occupies a width of less than 17 feet 5 inches with a loaded bucket, and its counterweight requires no additional clearance, so it is ideal for working on confined jobsites. It comes equipped with the Komtrax fleet monitoring system, which sends machine operating information to a secure website using wireless technology.
