Komatsu PC650LC-11 Hydraulic Excavator: THE BIG DIRT, ROCK AND QUARRY WORKHORSE

Komatsu’s newest version of the PC650 excavator offers improved fuel efficiency, serviceability and operator comfort while maintaining its reputation for powerful productivity and transportability.
“The PC650LC-11 is matched perfectly for high-production loading of 30-ton to 40-ton trucks and well suited for deep sewer and water trenching applications,” said Justin Lantin, product marketing manager, Komatsu America. The excavator is a workhorse in big dirt, rock and quarry applications, and “it is also designed to accommodate flexible job operations that require frequent transportation with reduced time required for disassembly,” he added.
The PC650 is equipped with a 436-net-horsepower Komatsu Tier 4 engine and a highly-efficient hydraulic system designed to reduce hydraulic loss. The load-sensing hydraulic system provides three working modes so operators can match machine performance to the application.
The speed on the hydraulically-driven, reversible cooling fan varies based on factors such as the temperature of the coolant, hydraulic oil and surrounding environment, resulting in better efficiency and lower noise levels.
Komatsu knows operators stay productive longer when they’re comfortable, so the cab in the PC650 has a heated, air-suspension high-back seat with fully adjustable armrests. A new display shows both vehicle information and a wide view from the standard rearview camera, increasing safety by letting the operator see the working area directly behind the machine.
A new, operator identification system allows you to track key operating information for various applications, jobs or operators, and the new Auto Idle Shutdown helps cut idle time and operating costs.
Convenient maintenance and serviceability features also lower the cost of ownership. Handrails on both sides of the upper structure make access easier, and the radiator and hydraulic coolers are mounted next to each other for easy service. Additionally, the PC650-11 is covered by the Komatsu CARE scheduled maintenance program for the first three years or 2,000 hours, whether purchased, rented or leased.
