Komatsu’s new PC138US-10 short-tailswing hydraulic excavator has an operating weight between 13,400 and 14,467kg, comes with a 69.7kW Stage 3B/Tier 4I-compliant engine and has improved hydraulic efficiency and operator comfort.

The PC138US-10 is supported by the Komatsu CARE complimentary three-year/2,000hr maintenance programme.

The company said lift capacity and stability of the compact machine are comparable to a conventional excavator, while the contoured cab swings within the same radius as the counterweight.

At the front end the work equipment is designed to minimise the front swing radius for better operation in confined areas. The new contoured ROPS cab has a sliding door and is mounted on viscous damper mounts to reduce vibration. The operator can select from six working modes.

To ease maintenance there is an access handrail on the upper structure. The radiator and hydraulic oil cooler are mounted side-by-side and wide access service doors facilitate daily service checks.
