The new Komatsu PC78US-10 tight-tail-swing excavator uses less fuel while offering higher productivity than the previous model. An additional benefit of the PC78US-10 is that the engine does not require a Diesel Particulate Filter DPF or Diesel Exhaust Fluid DEF reducing maintenance requirements and expenses. The Dash-10 model has a new Komatsu Tier 4 final engine and hydraulic system that increases productivity up to 3 percent while seeing a 5 percent reduction in fuel consumption noted Jason Crain general sales manager for Columbus Equipment Company. The fact that the engine does not require adding DEF fluid or changing out a DPF really differentiates this Komatsu from the competition. The PC78US is powered by a 68-hp engine with a variable flow turbocharger for precise operation and long life. In place of costly high-maintenance DPFs and DEF the engine uses the Komatsu Diesel Oxidation Catalyst after-treatment system that provides complete passive regeneration without any scheduled maintenance intervals. An exhaust recirculation system helps to reduce NOx emissions. The new Komatsu PC78US-10 is a minimal-radius standard-boom machine that allows our utility contractors to have a machine that can work in exceptionally tight places yet is easy to move from job to job Crain said. The new PC78US features a redesigned cab with a reinforced cab framework a rearview monitoring system with camera and a secondary engine shutdown switch. The cab is equipped with a new high-resolution LCD screen with operational efficiency guidance data for the operator and a monitor that allows the operator to con- trol up to 10 attachments. An auxiliary jack for digital devices is now standard. Komatsu has redesigned the PC78US to make main- tenance easier. Improvements include a new side-by-side radiator and oil cooler. All major maintenance items have been grouped into areas that are easily accessible from the engine hood right- side hood or side-service doors. All PC78US-10 excavatorswhether leased rented or purchasedare covered by Komatsu CARE for the first three years or 2000 hours. Komatsu CARE covers all scheduled maintenance in that period ensuring lower ownership costs and improved uptime for your machinery. www.columbusequipment.com 2 New Komatsu PC78US-10 Excavator Well-Engineered Durable Powerful Production Model Gross HP Operating Weight Bucket Dig Force PC78US-10 68 17747 lbs. 13780 lbs.
