During the second day of Excon 2023, Komatsu India Private Limited (KIPL) and Larsen & Toubro Limited demonstrated their latest hydraulic excavator models, the Komatsu PC81 and Komatsu PC136. The event provided a platform for these organisations to showcase their technological advancements and service capabilities to a distinguished audience. Introducing these newly launched models is a testament to their commitment to innovation and focus on delivering top-of-the-line products to their clients.

Komatsu PC81 combines innovative engineering, impeccable quality, and unmatched operational efficiency.

The Komatsu PC81 doesn’t just claim efficiency; it proves it. With a fuel consumption that’s 10% lower, it ensures that you save money with every scoop. This is complemented by a specially engineered ‘More Efficient’ (ME) bucket, which assures high productivity and further reduces fuel consumption, thus delivering the lowest excavation cost per cubic meter of material handled. Komatsu’s commitment to quality shines through in the PC81. Reinforced structures, a sturdier boom and arm, and the heavy-duty undercarriage are designed to weather even the most challenging job sites. The reinforced idler guard and thicker track shoe ensure longevity, while additional features like the rock breaker adaptation kit make it versatile and suitable for any attachment adaptation ranging from rock breakers, orange peel grapples, electromagnetic material handling attachments, demolition tools and various cutters.

With Komatsu, the operator is always at the centre. The spacious, ergonomic cabin boasts superior visibility, ensuring that operators can work with precision. Additional lamps enhance night-time visibility, and the cabin mesh guard acts as an extra shield, protecting the operator from potential hazards. And with controls easily within reach, operating the PC81 feels almost second nature. The Komatsu PC81 comes equipped with the cutting-edge HydrauMind hydraulic system, a testament to Komatsu’s forward-thinking approach. This system, backed by nearly 200 patents, offers unparalleled control and precision. Whether you’re digging, lifting, or manoeuvring, the HydrauMind system adjusts seamlessly, ensuring optimal speed and power. The result? A machine that feels like an extension of the operator, making even the most complex tasks seem effortless. The product introduction aligns with Komatu’s two-line strategy to address different customer segments and applications.
