New Komatsu low-emission MR-5 excavators use less fuel, increase production and improve safety
Komatsu Australia has released its new MR-5 mini excavator range, incorporating Tier 4-compliant, low-emission engines that also reduce fuel consumption, and with a range of features which improve production and work efficiency and increase jobsite safety.
The new range covers the PC30MR-5 (3.15-3.3 tonnes operating weight), PC35MR-5 (3.62-3.77 tonnes), PC45MR-5 (4.86-4.98 tonnes) and PC55MR-5 (5.14- 5.26 tonnes).
Available in both canopy and air-conditioned cab, ROPS-compliant options, the new range harnesses Komatsu’s unrivalled technological knowhow and worldwide resources to bring industry-leading customer value to this market sector.
“Our new MR-5 range boasts many industry firsts and is packed full of outstanding new and improved features,” said Carl Grundy, Komatsu Australia’s National Sales Manager – Utility.
“These include advances in operator comfort, increased safety, improved ergonomic design, even lower fuel consumption, advances in controllability, the latest version of our KOMTRAX remote monitoring system – and the highest levels of standard specifications offered in the industry.
“Across the range, they raise the bar in terms of what customers can expect from a mini excavator,” Grundy said.
All four new machines feature US EPA Tier 4 Final-compliant, electronically controlled engines with either the Komatsu 3D88E-7 rated at 18.2kW for the smaller PC30MR-5 and PC35MR-5 or the Komatsu 4D88E-7 rated at 29.6 kW for both the PC45MR-5 and the PC55MR-5.
“In addition to delivering far lower emissions, these new minis use between 5% and 7% less fuel than their MR-3 predecessors – with no loss of performance or productivity,” he said.
