Komatsu has introduced the new PC130-11 excavator for contractors looking for an entry-level machine to tackle tasks such as utility work or small construction jobs.

The mid-sized PC130-11 features an operating weight of 13,000 kg, which allows the excavator to be more easily transported on a tag trailer without permits. The machine’s easy transportability also makes it ideal for rental. 

The new excavator fits in between Komatsu’s PC88 mini excavator and PC138 mid-sized excavator in the company’s lineup.

“The versatility of our PC130-11 makes it a great excavator for customers looking for an entry-level excavator with Komatsu durability and reliability,” said Andrew Earing, product marketing manager, Komatsu. “It can be a real workhorse as your business expands and grows.”

Powered by a 97.2 hp Tier 4 Final Komatsu engine, the conventional tail swing PC130-11 excavator provides customers with fast loading cycles and high productivity.

With steel castings in the boom foot, boom nose and arm tip to help spread working loads away from high stress areas, the PC130-11 offers long-term durability.

As well, the PC130-11 has 12 per cent lower fuel consumption than the previous model, and its auto-idle shut down function can be set to automatically stop the engine after a preset amount of idle time. The fuel-saving viscous fan clutch also reduces engine load when maximum cooling is not needed.

The excavator’s engine is also equipped with a double element air cleaner with auto dust evacuator, as well as an overheat prevention system.

Operators can choose from six working modes to optimize productivity and fuel efficiency and the PC130-11’s high performing hydraulic flow and stick digging force optimize machine productivity. Furthermore, its large one-piece hood and ground level daily checks simplify serviceability.

The ROPS cab of the PC130-11 is equipped with automatic air conditioning, a large high-resolution LCD monitor, auxiliary input jack, rear view monitor system and a suspension seat. The KomVision surround camera system is optional.
