New Komatsu Midi launches In Ireland


Komatsu has unveiled its new PC88MR-11 Midi excavator which their distributor in Ireland, McHale Plant Sales confirms is now available here.

Built on the solid foundations of its hugely successful Dash-10 predecessor, the MR-11 comes with a multiplicity of features that includes cutting edge styling, lower fuel consumption, higher performance and unrivalled efficiency.


A checklist of improvements includes the European debut of the brand new 2.4-litre Komatsu EU Stage V compliant 50.7 kW / 68hp engine with DPF – whose attributes include a low-noise engine fan clutch system, increased power and reduced fuel consumption. Stats-wise, productivity is up by 7%, fuel consumption lower by an average 6%, levelling speed is up by 14% and attachment oil flow (l/min) up 12%.

An automatic 2-way, 1-way, 2-way attachment changeover valve makes switching easier while a redesigned blade and repositioned high/low switchable blade lever improve dozing operation. Optional is a factory-fitted Lehnhoff Powertilt.

The new PC88MR-11 offers first class operator comfort with new large access doors. Maintenance is easy, fast and safe with items positioned all on one side and accessible from ground level. A tight tail swing lets the operator concentrate on work without worry about rear swing impacts, making the PC88MR-11 a versatile solution in confined areas.

Transport height is reduced 20mm compared to the previous model. Amongst its other features are Bluetooth radio, LED work lamps for day / night operation, air heated suspended seat, easy floor mat cleaning, and easy monitored attachment flow setting and radiator cleaning, thanks to a convenient, well placed dust net.

Commenting, McHale Plant Sales director, John O’Brien said: “More than a simple model update, the PC88MR-11 introduces several improvements in dig-loading cycle and performance that increase production and the feeling of a faster machine”.

“With its low consumption and powerful EU-compliant engine, owners can future-proof their investment thanks to its many features and improvements whilst being free to take part in any tendering process in which environmental credentials must be demonstrated,” O’Brien added.
