Excavator Has ‘Best-in- Class’ Engine Power and Breakout Force
The shovel is matched to plus-200 ton trucks, such as Komatsu’s 830E, 860E and 930E haul units. The diesel drive variant features two Tier 2-rated Komatsu SSDA16V159E-2 engines, rated at 2,500 kW. (Two squirrel cage [electric drive] 1,200-kW motors are optional.) At 10.5 meters (m) long, with a maximum travel speed of 2.5 km/h, it has a bucket (backhoe and front shovel) capacity of 36 m3 at 1.8 mt/m3 material density. The 682-mt backhoe’s bucket breakout force is 1,671 kilonewtons (kN). The 674-mt front shovel’s bucket breakout force is 1,994 kN.
KOMTRAX Plus, Komatsu’s machine
monitoring system, is standard on the
PC7000. Modular Mining’s ProVision system
offers additional capabilities, such
as bidirectional data transfer; improved
bench level adherence to plan; delineation
of blocks and polygons; improved
production efficiency; and enhanced
safety via hazard alerts, restricted area
identification and proximity warnings.
