By Dan Colombini29 December 2021

Manufacturer Komatsu Europe has announced a major upgrade for three wheeled excavators, enhancing their capabilities and emissions standards.

The upgraded Komatsu PW148-11, PW158-11 and PW160-11 wheeled excavators now meet EU stage V emissions regulations.

The upgraded Komatsu PW148-11, PW158-11 and PW160-11 wheeled excavators now meet EU stage V emissions regulations, and deliver more power, new features and values.

The new products have been designed to deliver increased operator comfort, smart safety initiatives, as well as overall enhanced specifications.

With 20 kW more power for both the PW148-11and PW158-11, all the new Komatsu engines also bring higher productivity with lower fuel consumption and faster uphill travel speed.

How to reduce CO2 emissions
A Komatsu Diesel particle filter is standard-equipped, enabling jobs to be finished faster and with lower costs and CO2 emissions, the firm said.

More versatile, with the new preparation to install an optional tilt rotator, the improved wheeled excavators also propose a more ergonomic steering wheel, an automatic digging brake option, and an improved premium air-suspended operator seat with integrated joystick consoles.

Michael Wadsack, product manager at Komatsu Europe, said: “Every job has something special. And each one requires total commitment from our customers and their machine.

“That’s what we designed these new Komatsu wheeled excavators for: maximum performance and operator comfort combined with low operating costs and effort. Environment-friendly and powerful Komatsu technology and design gets the job done. Try it and test it.”
