 Komatsu has extended their Dash-10 series with the launch of their PC170LC-10 excavator on the European market. 

Powered by an EU Stage 3B engine, with its lower emissions and lower fuel consumption, this latest addition has operating weights from 17,280kg - 18,220kg, delivering up to 5% more lift capacity with a standard counterweight.  Contractors requiring more powerful lifting can fit a heavier counterweight that will provide up to 15% more lift capacity.
The PC170LC-10 delivers a net 115HP at 2,100rpm. Depending on application and conditions, it is up to 10 percent more fuel- efficient than its predecessor thanks to a variable-flow turbocharger that produces optimal airflow under all speeds and load conditions.

In common with every new Komatsu EU Stage 3B construction machine, the PC170LC-10 benefits from Komatsu CARE complimentary factory-scheduled maintenance. Other features include latest KOMTRAX fleet monitoring technology and KEMM - Komatsu’s own equipment management monitoring system. Besides providing troubleshooting assistance to minimise diagnosis and repair time, KEMM  enhanced diagnostic features plan maintenance schedules and provide operator and technicians with greater monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities. 
All of the PC170LC-10’s major components are exclusively designed and manufactured by Komatsu to create an integrated load sensing hydraulic system utilizing variable speed matching and low speed matching technology. A long-life diesel oxidation catalyst removes soot without the need for a diesel particulate filter.

Cab comforts include an easy-to-use, high-resolution LCD color monitor on which the operator can select from six working modes - Power Mode, Economy Mode, Heavy Lift Mode, Breaker Mode, Attachment Economy and Attachment Power – in order to match performance to the application. It also provides operational efficiency guidance in the form of records, fuel consumption history and utilization information. A push-button activated rear-view monitoring system allows the operator to view directly behind the machine.
Seeing it as a further indication of Komatsu’s determination to equip their machines with latest technology and features to assist owner and operator alike, John O’Brien, sales director with Komatsu distributor McHale Plant Sales said ‘the class-leading enhancements built into the PC170LC-10 and its EU Stage 3B stable mates combine to make these latest Komatsu machines especially appealing to those who seek to extract maximum return from their machines’.
