PC290LC-11 Excavators

Now powered by Komatsu’s low emission Tier 4 Final-compliant engine technology, the PC290LC-11 is a beefed-up performer ideal for civil construction, rental and related industries, suitable for carrying out heavy earthmoving, excavating and general construction works. As with all our construction excavators, key components are designed and manufactured by Komatsu to work together in an integrated package. And it comes standard with our KOMTRAX remote monitoring and location system, backed by our NZ-wide service and support network.

  • 147 kW / 196 HP
  • 30,330 kg
  • 1.39 m³

Longer Reach

The PC290LC-11 now comes with 6.15m boom and 3.2m arm as standard to deliver an increased digging reach of 10.7m.  Stability is uncompromised with a 30 tonne undercarriage and heavier 5200kg counterweight.

Fuel consumption reduced

The PC290LC-11's new tier 4 final engine along with enhancements in the hydraulic system considerably decreases fuel consumption. The fuel efficiency is reduced by 9% compared to the previous models.

Comfortable Working Space

The wide spacious cab includes a heated air suspension seat with reclining backrest. The seat height and position are easily adjusted using a pull-up lever. The armrest position is easily adjusted together with the console. Reclining the seat further enables it to be fully laid back with the headrest attached.
