The 78,000-pound PC300LC-8 is powered by Komatsu’s Tier-3-certified SAA6D114E-5 engine with 246 flywheel horsepower. The seven-inch LCD monitor can display data in 10 languages, offers control of the five operating modes, and presents images from the standard rearview-camera system. A one-touch Power Max Function increases digging force by 7 percent for 8 seconds. The new multi-layer viscous cab mounting system incorporates longer stroke and the addition of a spring. Combined with a rigid deck, the new damper mounting reduces noise and vibration at the operator’s seat.
