Komatsu’s reliable and tough design solutions have further reduced machine downtime. The auto decelerator
and idle shutdown now both come as standard: they help to reduce fuel consumption, increase residual value and lower service costs. The proportional lines improve the machine’s productivity and versatility when working with attachments.

Newly developed hydraulic electronic controls optimise machine performance and also lower fuel consumption, whatever the job. The 6 selectable working modes, a concept usually reserved for higher end hydraulic excavators, promote relaxed operations and increased profits.

The new PC80MR‐5’s cab was redesigned, inside and out, for more functionality and a modern look and feel. Accessibility was improved with a new hinged door solution, and a high‐resolution multifunctional 3.5” LCD colour monitor panel, with maintenance info displayed, improves ease of use and technological appeal. Air conditioning is now standard and a dial type fuel control further increases operator comfort, control and convenience.

The control lever Neutral Detection System is an industry‐leading safety feature, along with the engine shutdown secondary switch and seat belt caution indicator. The easy‐to‐use tie down brackets provide fast and easy transportability.
