We have added three 20 tonne Komatsu PC210LCi excavators to our fleet. In addition to Komatsu’s standard features, these new excavators include integrated machine control and a 3D guidance system.
They have an exclusive control function which means that digging too deep or damaging a target surface is no longer an issue as the bucket is automatically limited from digging beyond the target surface. The control function also maintains grade automatically, with real-time bucket edge positioning in relation to the machine and the job surface. This information is instantly displayed on a full colour, touch screen control box monitor in the operator’s cab, eliminating the wait time associated with conventional sensors.
Malcolm McDermott, Managing Director said: “Our continued investment in new machinery ensures our teams are well equipped to successfully deliver projects. The addition of machine control technology will help increase efficiency and the value offered to customers.”
