Komatsu has added its intelligent machine control, iMC 2.0, on the PC490LCi-11 excavator, adding the solution to a larger machine. Designed to lessen the skills gap between new and experienced operators – while helping improve the bottom line for contractors – the 359 HP PC490LCi-11 is Komatsu's largest excavator equipped with iMC 2.0. 

Ideal for excavation, trenching, slope work, or fine grading, the PC490LCi-11 helps minimize over-excavation, enabling operators to dig straight to grade quickly and accurately. Built on Komatsu's intelligent machine control platform, and developed with input from leading construction companies, iMC 2.0 offers additional new features.

Upgraded iMC monitor

A new 10.4" iMC monitor features increased memory capacity, processing speed, and pinch-to-zoom functionality for improved performance and ease of use. 

Bucket angle hold control

The new bucket angle hold control helps operators reach and finish grades quickly and accurately. It automatically holds the bucket angle to the design surface during arm operation, enabling operators to perform finish grading using only arm input.
