Komatsu PC490LCi working at Pine Bush Equipment

The PC490LCi-11 features Komatsu’s revolutionary machine control and guidance system, fully factory integrated with the other qualities and benefits of the standard Komatsu PC490LC-11 excavator. The exclusive control function lets you focus on moving material efficiently, without having to worry about digging too deep or damaging the target surface. From utility trenching to heavy highway, the PC490LCi-11 excavator drastically improves efficiency and precision on your work sites. Unearth your productivity.

World’s first intelligent Machine Control excavator with semi-automatic control allows the operator to improve work efficiency as compared to conventional aftermarket machine guidance (indicate only) or manual operation. Rough digging to finish grading, intelligent Machine Control minimizes over-excavation to make every pass count.

With the auto grade assist function, the operator moves the arm, the boom adjusts the bucket height automatically, tracing the target surface and minimizing digging too deep. This allows the operator to perform rough digging without worrying about the design surface, and to perform fine digging by operating the arm lever only. The working range is expanded by holding the lever to move the boom downward.

During boom or bucket operation, the work equipment automatically stops when the bucket edge reaches the design surface, thus minimizing damage to the design surface.

The intelligent Machine Control excavator controls the bucket by automatically selecting the point on the bucket closest to the target surface. Should the machine not be facing a sloped surface at a right angle, it will still follow the target surface and minimize digging below it.
