Komatsu PC2000LC-8 crawler excavatorIn the transition to Tier 2 compliance, Komatsu replaced the twin-engine PC1800 crawler excavator with the single-engine PC2000LC-8, gaining nearly 50 hp and driving a major shift toward simplicity. The 443,000-pound PC200LC-8 mining excavator is powered by Komatsu’s 956 hp SAA12V140E-3 diesel. Four much-larger hydraulic pumps replace the PC1800’s 10 pumps. A standard Vehicle Health Monitoring System with Orbcomm monitors the health of major machine components and enables remote analysis of the machine and its operation. With a 15.7-cubic-yard bucket, the PC2000LC-8 is designed to load a 100-ton truck (like Komatsu’s new HD785) in 4 to five passes.
