Video review: Komatsu PC300LC-8 excavator
In this video Ron Horner takes us around a near-brand-new 34-tonne Komatsu PC300LC-8 being used for final-trim work on some sediment basins which East Coast Mining Group is building in Queensland.
"Our passion in Australia for 30-tonne excavators hasn’t waned for years, Ron says. "They’re still the workhorses that we need, and we love ’em. And, of course, Komatsu is one of the majors in the world and does an absolutely fantastic job."
With the PC300LC-8, Komatsu has once again come to the fore and delivered an exceptional, well-balanced and reliable excavator, Ron says, adding: "This machine is so well-balanced it is quite exceptional to see the quality of work you can pull out."
As Ron said in his full review, which you can read here, the machine handled everything he could throw at it, even though there was no ‘hard slog’ anywhere on site on the day of the review.
