The Komatsu PC360LCi-11 intelligent Machine Control excavator lets the operator focus on moving material efficiently without worrying about digging too deep. The touch screen control box monitor, makes grading easy and accurate, providing the operator with real time information on bucket edge position in relation to design surface, “as-built” status, and customisable spilt screen views in profile, plan or 3D format.
By setting 3D design data on the control box monitor, the use of traditional guidance methods such as stakes and grade rails can be reduced or eliminated, as can surveying and final inspection. Safety is greatly improved, with less people needed on the job site and near the machine.
Intelligent ON/OFF switches for the semi-automatic function, and raise/lower of the design offset, are fully integrated in the joysticks. This further increases efficiency and safety for the operator.
