The PC228USLC-10, with an operating weight between 23,800 kg and 24,500 kg, is powered by a 123 kW (165 HP) Komatsu SAA6D107E-2 engine that is EU Stage IIIB / EPA Tier 4 Interim emissions certified. It is the latest model in the company's range of short-tail swing range.
ore compact than a conventional excavator, the PC228USLC-10 tail allows the machine to work in confined areas for road, bridge, and urban applications. Maximum bucket capacity is 1.49 m³, maximum digging depth is 6.62 m; dump height at pin is 7.82 m and digging reach is 9.87 m.
A rounded cab design allows the cab to rotate within the same swing radius as the counterweight - an important safety feature when working in restricted areas or around people. The sliding cab door allows unrestricted access / egress to the cab in confined spaces.
Power is from a Komatsu EU Stage IIIB / EPA Tier 4 Interim Emissions Certified Engine that provides a 6.7% increase in horsepower whilst lowering fuel consumption.
The latest Komatsu enables ground level access to key service points. The fuel drain valve, engine oil filter, swing machinery and pump drive oil filters are all remote-mounted for easy maintenance. The radiator, hydraulic oil cooler, and charge air cooler are mounted side by side, making it simple to maintain and service.
The ROPS-certified cab gains strength from a reinforced box structure framework.
Spacious and pressurized, the cab is equipped with a standard heated, air suspension high back operator seat for ergonomic support and comfort for reduced fatigue.
The versatile design can fit into areas where a conventional machine cannot. The 2,310 mm (7’7”) boom raising angle of the PC228USLC-10 is larger than a conventional profile excavator, reducing the front implement swing radius.
In roadworks, the machine can work safely within the width of a typical carriageway.
