Working in congested or confined areas can be a challenge. Komatsu’s PC228USLC-3 Hydraulic Excavators have a short tail swing profile, designed specifically for work in confined areas. By reducing tail swing, the PC228USLC-3 is perfect for work on roadways, bridges, in urban areas, or anywhere space is limited. The PC228USLC-3 provides the performance and productivity you expect from Komatsu equipment.
Low emission engine
A powerful turbocharged and air-to-air aftercooled Komatsu SAA6D107E-1 engine provides 110 kW 148 HP. This engine is EPA Tier 3 and EU stage 3A emission ready, without sacrificing power or machine productivity.
Low operation noise
The dynamic noise is reduced compared to the previous model, realizing a low noise operation.
Large cab
• Komatsu’s low noise design incorporates a fully pressed, highly-rigid cab that utilizes viscous cab mounting
• A sliding convex door has improved cab access in confined areas
• Komatsu’s large cab has improved working space that provides more comfortable operation
High mobility
Superior drawbar pull and steering force are displayed when operating on a slope or other rough terrain.
Wide working ranges
Maximum digging height of the PC228USLC-3 is 7% higher than that of the PC200LC-8. Raising the boom on the PC228USLC-3 to a wider angle enhances overall working performance. Job sites that require a long upper reach, such as demolition and slope cutting benefit from the increased digging and dumping ranges of the PC228USLC-3.
Upper structure features
• Slip resistant surfaces for improving foot traction
• Improved visibility with large side-view, sidewise, and rear mirrors added.
KOMTRAX® equipped machines can send location, SMR and operation maps to a secure website utilizing wireless technology. Machines also relay error codes, cautions, maintenance items, fuel levels, and much more.
Multi-function monitor controls
• Three travel speeds
• Four working modes designed to match engine speed, pump delivery, and system pressure
• Power mode maximizes production and power
• Breaker mode for optimum engine rpm, hydraulic flow, and pressure
• Economy mode for lower fuel consumption and noise
• Lifting mode for high lift capacity
High stability
The PC228USLC-3 offers exceptional lifting capacity and high stability with a large counterweight that requires no additional clearance.
Confined space operation
The PC228USLC-3’s round form reduces the risk of hitting objects with the front and rear end of the machine.
Easy maintenance
• Long replacement interval of engine oil, engine oil filter, and hydraulic filter
• Remote mounted engine oil filter and fuel drain valve for easy access
• Equipped with the fuel pre-filter as standard (with water separator)
• Side-by-side cooling function enables the cooling units to be attached and detached independently
• Equipped with the EMMS monitoring system
Small road occupied width
Komatsu’s PC228USLC-3 occupies a road width of 3.99 m 13'1" or less with a loaded bucket. This allows the machine to work on either side of the lane without interfering with traffic flow.
Other features
• Cup holder
• Low effort joy stick
• Large capacity air conditioner
• Sliding window
