Increase power while reducing fuel consumption with Komatsu America’s PC290LC-10 hydraulic excavator. The model has a Tier 4 Interim 196-horsepower engine that uses an electronic control system to manage airflow rate, fuel injection, combustion parameters and aftertreatment functions to boost performance. The unit’s hydraulically actuated variable geometry turbocharger and exhaust gas recirculation valve offer enhanced precision and air management, as well as extended component life. The excavator’s closed center load-sensing hydraulic system uses variable speed matching, enabling the engine speed to adjust based on the application. The model is equipped with the Komtrax fleet monitoring system, which tracks hours, locations, cautions, maintenance alerts and more. This information is then relayed wirelessly to a web application for analysis. Five working modes – Power, Economy, Heavy Lift, Breaker and Attachment – are selectable via a 7-inch high resolution LCD monitor that also delivers information such as fuel consumption history.
