Komatsu Hybrid Excavator – New 35 Ton


Komatsu was the first in the world, to make available hybrid excavators. They entered the Australian market in 2011.

Komatsu Australia has announced the global release of the HB335LC-1, a 35-tonne version of its award-winning Hybrid excavator featuring the same Komatsu-designed Ultra Capacitor-based slew-energy regeneration system as on Komatsu’s proven 20-tonne (image) class HB205-1 and HB215LC-1 Hybrid excavators.

According to Amber Rickard from Komatsu, especially in the Australian market, the release of a 35-tonne class Hybrid excavator was a logical decision.

“Our initial Hybrid range was developed around 20-tonne class machines because that is where the largest sector of the market is globally,” she said. “However, in Australia, where the 35-tonne class is the larger market segment, it made a lot of sense to bring the benefits of Komatsu Hybrid excavator technology to this size machine.”

The new HB335LC-1 Hybrid, combines a number of key features that deliver fuel savings and environmental benefits. It combines Komatsu’s Ultra Capacitor with an inverter, motor generator and electric swing motor and the engine, all optimally controlled to suit the work situation.

“Depending on the application, customers will see an average fuel consumption saving of 20% from our new 35-tonne Hybrid excavator,” she said. “We expect this saving to be greater in certain applications – similar to those seen in our 20-tonne class Hybrid excavators.”
