Komatsu America introduced its new PC1250SP-11 and PC1250LC-11 Tier 4 Final emissions-certified hydraulic excavators.

The excavators deliver 13 percent more horsepower and are up to 8 percent more productive compared to previous models, according to Komatsu.

The new models have SAA6D170E-7 engines with two Komatsu diesel particulate filters that do not require diesel exhaust fluid or a selective catalyst reduction system.

Both models feature increased power, improved production and a new single “Power Plus” operating mode designed so they do not compromise fuel consumption, according to the company.

“The PC1250 offers exceptional customer value across a broad range of applications, including sewer and water, general construction, mass excavation, as well as mining, quarry, sand and gravel,” says Kurt Moncini, senior product manager of tracked equipment at Komatsu America.

The PC1250LC-11 operating weights vary between 269,300 and 275,240 pounds. The PC1250SP-11 operating weights vary between 259,960 and 265,900 pounds.

In addition, the new excavators feature an expanded operator cab that is 3.5 in. wider than the company’s current cabs, with sound levels that are 2 dB(A) lower than previous models. The company also says both excavators provide improved operator comfort levels.

The excavators have auto-idle and auto-idle shutdown functions, designed to reduce fuel consumption by limiting extended idle time, according to Komatsu America.

Also, the standard KomVision 4 camera system provides a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding area to improve operator situational awareness, according to the company.
