Weighing in at 106,924 pounds in log-loader configuration, the Komatsu PC390LL-10 has a new Oregon OSHA ROPS/OPS/FOPS/TOPS/WBC certified forestry cab and features a swing system and undercarriage components from the next-size-larger Komatsu excavator. A new Komatsu-designed 42-inch-reach, live-heel logging boom is now available with Komatsu-designed hydraulic cylinders and guarding. Forestry grapples, with 58- and 60-inch openings, are available as factory installed. In addition to the live heel front end, a full complement of Komatsu excavator booms, arms and buckets also is available for road building and clearing applications. A special configuration, without bucket cylinder and linkage, is available for processor-head applications. The machine uses a 257-horsepower, Tier 4-Final engine.
