KomatsuRanging from the 4,090-pound PC18MR-2 to the 11,110-pound PC50MR-2, the six-model MR-2 compact excavator series by Komatsu offers high lifting capacity and stability in a tight-tail machine design. As shown here with the PC35MR-2, there is only a 3.2-inch protrusion over the tracks during swing operations. With automatic two-speed travel, the speed of MR-2 machines is automatically shifted from high to low according to travel load. With large drawbar pull, the operator can efficiently fill trenches with the backfill blade.
