Superb Design ‐ Excellent Comfort ‐ Superior Safety

 Marubeni-Komatsu announces the new PC80MR‐5 midi excavator, with an integrated counterweight and tight tail swing radius, a swing boom that hugs the machine and operating weights ranging from 8,000 to 8,240 kg the PC80MR‐5 is ideal for work in confined areas and urban environments.

 The Komatsu PC80MR‐5 is packed with new and improved features. Designed with the customer in mind, it is powered by an electronically controlled Komatsu 4D98E‐5SFB Stage IIIB engine, with DPF and a net horsepower of 46.2 kW (62 hp). This more environmentally‐friendly engine maintains the proven performance of the previous series while reducing fuel consumption by up to 10 % .

“The PC80MR‐5 is designed for improved versatility, manoeuvrability, comfort ‐ and for low operating costs,” says Emanuele Viel, KEISA Group Manager Utility. “It’s a perfect tool for most confined‐area jobsites and for construction, utility, landscaping or similar applications”.

The latest KOMTRAX telematics, offer top fleet management and support, protect the machine against misuse and guarantee maximum efficiency and uptime.

Optimal performance

Komatsu’s reliable and tough design solutions have further reduced machine downtime. The auto decelerator

and idle shutdown now both come as standard: they help to reduce fuel consumption, increase residual value and lower service costs. The proportional lines improve the machine’s productivity and versatility when working with attachments.

Newly developed hydraulic electronic controls optimise machine performance and also lower fuel consumption, whatever the job. The 6 selectable working modes, a concept usually reserved for higher end hydraulic excavators, promote relaxed operations and increased profits.

First Class operator comfort

The new PC80MR‐5’s cab was redesigned, inside and out, for more functionality and a modern look and feel. Accessibility was improved with a new hinged door solution, and a high‐resolution multifunctional 3.5” LCD colour monitor panel, with maintenance info displayed, improves ease of use and technological appeal. Air conditioning is now standard and a dial type fuel control further increases operator comfort, control and convenience.

Safety and peace of mind

The control lever Neutral Detection System is an industry‐leading safety feature, along with the engine shutdown secondary switch and seat belt caution indicator. The easy‐to‐use tie down brackets provide fast and easy transportability.
