Komatsu applies its learning to new hybrid

Written by Steve Ducker - 30 Mar 2017

Komatsu America introduced the new HB365LC-3 hybrid excavator at this year’s Conexpo show in Las Vegas.

It features improved hybrid and total-vehicle-control systems, to help reduce fuel consumption by up to 20% depending on application, while maintaining or exceeding operating performance, compared to 36 t, non-hybrid excavators.

“The new 36-ton-class HB365LC-3 excavator is built for power and production first, with the considerable fuel savings an added benefit,” said Kurt Moncini, Komatsu America senior product manager.

“We applied everything we learned when we debuted the HB215LC-1, the world’s first fully-electric hybrid excavator in 2011. Now we have the perfect balance of performance and fuel efficiency.”
