 Komatsu’s commitment towards reducing the environmental impact of its earthmoving machines was recognised at the recent Plovdiv International fair in Bulgaria, when the new HB365LC-3 was presented with the coveted Gold Medal Award for Innovation.

In choosing the winner, the judging panel was said to be impressed with the hydraulic hybrid excavator’s ‘application of innovative technology which focuses on the reduction of customer cost and environmental impact’.

Described by Komatsu distributor in Ireland, McHale Plant Sales as ‘a heavyweight excavator with a lightweight environmental impact’, the 36-tonne HB365LC-3 is expected to appeal to quarry and crushing contractors seeking an economic machine with proven low fuel consumption figures suited to working in high intensity operations.

As with previous hybrids, this latest version delivers proven economies through lower fuel use and reduced emissions by combining the power of an EU Stage IV engine combined with Komatsu’s famed hybrid system which is kept charged by its own movement.
