Komatsu PC300LC 8 excavator video review
In this video Ron Horner takes us around a near-brand-new 34-tonne Komatsu PC300LC-8 being used for final-trim work on some sediment basins which East Coast Mining Group is building in Queensland.
The PC300LC-8M0 incorporates a holistic, integrated design with a host of standard factory installed items to provide piece of mind and compliance with industry expectations. It combines Dash 8 quality and performance with new fuel saving technology to further improve fuel efficiency, upgraded monitor / KOMTRAX functionality and high capacity air conditioning with increased cool down performance.
This 34+ tonne excavator includes the latest technology, ergonomics and features and with the long carriage configuration, offers increased stability and reduced ground pressure.. It is suited to large construction jobs requiring a combination of heavy lift, wide working range and high productivity.
Highly productive cycle times are achieved through optimum weight and power balance.
