Komatsu expands MR-5 mini excavator range
By Leila Steed26 January 2021
Komatsu Europe has added the new PC24MR-5 mini excavator to its MR-5 range of Stage V compliant machines.
The model, which has an operating weight of 2.4 tonnes, is equipped with the manufacturer’s 3D76E-6 engine and includes its KOMTRAX monitoring system as standard. The wireless system, which includes an integrated antenna for 4G communication, provides operators with operational data and reports.
Suitable for a range of construction applications, including indoor demolition, Komatsu said the PC24MR-5 had been completely renewed for the European market. Designed for easy transport on 3.5-t trailers, the model features a new MR-5 comfort cab with a wider door and lower refuelling point.
Simone Reddi, Komatsu Europe Product Manager for mini excavators, says “The MR-5 range concentrates the quality and performance of the larger Komatsu construction range into a compact package, and with a unique design concept the Komatsu MR-5 excavators are sure to stand out on jobsites across Europe. The PC24MR-5 is positioned to combine with the PC26MR-5 to form a strong 2-model attack strategy in this all-important segment that requires high performance and easy transport.”
The MR-5 range is the successor to Komatsu’s MR-3 equipment line. The PC24MR-5 joins the company’s PC18MR-5, PC26MR-5 and PC58MR-5 models.
