New Products


Komatsu America Corp. introduced the new PC1250SP-11 and PC1250LC-11 hydraulic excavators. Both EPA Tier 4 Final (T4F)-certified models have SAA6D170E-7 engines with two Komatsu Diesel Particulate Filters (KDPF) that do not require Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) or a Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) system.

Operating weights of PC1250LC-11 vary between 269,300 pounds and 275,240 pounds, and 259,960 pounds and 265,900 pounds for the SP model.

New features of the excavators include:

  • A Komatsu 23.15-liter SAA6D170E-6 diesel engine with 758 horsepower has 13 percent more horsepower than the previous models and meets EPA Tier 4 Final emission requirements.
  • New Power plus work mode with enhanced engine/hydraulic pump control efficiency helps increase productivity up to 8 percent without negatively impacting fuel consumption, compared to the previous models.
  • Upgraded operator cab is 3.5” (90mm) wider than the current Dash 11 excavator cabs and is OPG Level 1 (ISO 12117-2) compliant with standard OPG Level 2 (ISO 10262) top guard. Sounds levels are also 2 dB(A) lower than the previous models.
  • Upgraded, high-resolution, 7-inch LCD color monitor panel incorporates an updated default split-display mode showing KomVision camera display and key gauges.
  • Standard KomVision 4 camera system provides a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding area for improved operator situational awareness.
  • Auxiliary jack to connect MP3 players or other digital devices for playback through the standard stereo speakers.
  • Operator ID system-records KOMTRAX machine operation and application data for up to 100 individual ID codes.
  • Auto Idle and Auto Idle Shutdown helps reduce fuel consumption by limiting extended idle time.
  • KOMTRAX Plus Version 2 enables expanded fleet monitoring via satellite and wireless LAN. Users can analyze “machine health” and performance from a remote location, on a near-real-time basis.
  • Tie off anchor points are integrated into the booms and arms for use with service technician restraint harnesses.
  • New, optional, hydraulically powered ladder provides easier access to machine cab and left-side walkway. This option will also be available as a field installation kit.

The new excavators are also designed for easy maintenance via access to filters (air, oil, fuel, KCCV), hydraulic oil cooler core, reversible hydraulic fan and rear-facing maintenance walkway; and such features as electric fuel priming pump, monitor panel and Tier-4 technology, and hydraulic filter restriction sensors that monitor restriction and trigger warning indicator in the monitor.

In addition, Komatsu CARE provides complimentary, scheduled factory maintenance (engine only) for the first 2,000 hours or three years, including a 50-point inspection at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 service intervals. Complementary KDPF Exchange covers exchange of both KDPFs within the first five years at the exchange interval of 4,500 hours.
