Komatsu Europe International has introduced its latest hydraulic excavator to the European market.

This PC290LC/NLC-11 features an environmentally friendly EU Stage IV Komatsu engine, up to 5% improved fuel efficiency, an upgraded cab design and enhanced safety and serviceability.

Vince Porteous, product manager at Komatsu Europe International, said: “This new excavator does so much more than simply meet EU Stage IV emission regulations.

“It offers significant advances in fuel consumption, provides 3G communications, improves operator comfort and includes new safety features.”

Key features include an engine that integrates SCR to further reduce NOx emissions using the AdBlue additive.

The company said that it optimises performance, reduces emissions, and provides advanced diagnostic capability, with customers benefitting from lower fuel consumption with no loss of performance.

To ensure product reliability and durability in demanding conditions, Komatsu developed the entire system, including the control software which is critical to the effective operation of the aftertreatment system.

This control system is also integrated into the machine’s on-board diagnostics systems and in Komtrax, Komatsu’s standard telematics system.
