Contractors looking for a machine with performance and versatility in an easy-to-transport package will want to take a look at the Komatsu PC88MR-11 excavator. The reduced tail swing radius on the PC88MR-11 makes it ideal for work on roadways, bridges, urban areas, or anywhere space is limited.

Versatility and efficiency come standard

The 67.7 hp (50.6 kW) excavator has standard high flow auxiliary hydraulics with proportional joysticks that offer incredible job versatility, while providing precise attachment control. Standard grading blade with new moldboard profile improves backfilling and light grading efficiency.

Designed to excel in underground utility or general construction in urban environments, the PC88MR-11 short tail swing excavator is more at home in confined spaces than a conventional excavator. Its swing boom design allows digging parallel to buildings or barriers.

Fuel efficient, low-cost power

The new high-efficiency power package and viscous fan clutch work together to lower overall fuel consumption by up to 13%. The smart, simplified catalytic system removes soot without a diesel particulate filter, for lower maintenance and lower cost of ownershipKomatsu Pc88 Mr 11 VerticalKomatsu America Corp.

Maximum operator comfort

Operators work comfortably in a quiet, climate-controlled cab featuring air suspension seat, Bluetooth radio, and high-resolution monitor with rearview camera. The sliding cab door makes entry and exit easier in confined spaces and LED lights provide excellent vision at night.

Quick and easy maintenance

Periodic maintenance is accessible and efficient with large service access doors and grouped service points with ground-level access.
