Equip your crews with machinery that excels in challenging environments. The PC230F-11 processor, with its robust design, high and wide undercarriage, potent swing motor, and resilience against high-debris conditions, is tailored precisely for demanding tasks. It also features a comfortable and quiet cab for an enhanced operator experience.

  • Robust and durable design
  • High and wide undercarriage for stability
  • Potent swing system for efficient operation
  • Double-capacity fuel tank for extended operation
  • Comfortable and quiet cab for operator satisfaction

Product Features and benefits:

Exceptional Range of Motion

Effortlessly handle large trees with a powerful swing system and a generous swing circle. Achieve an outstanding reach of up to 29 feet (8,951 mm) for superior maneuverability, driving productivity in forestry operations.

Excellent Ground Clearance

Navigate reliably through challenging forestry environments with a high and wide undercarriage designed using larger class-size components.

Comfortable, Quiet Cab

Reduce operator fatigue and enhance productivity by providing a comfortable and quiet work environment. Climate-controlled cabs equipped with Bluetooth technology and a cushioned air-suspension seat, which can be heated or cooled, contribute to operator well-being.

Protection Against Falling Limbs

Safeguard your investment with an extra-rugged exterior designed to withstand falling limbs. Thicker service undercover guards, rear compartment doors, and a right corner guard with a tree deflector provide robust protection in demanding environments.

Stands Up to Debris

Work confidently in high-debris conditions with a machine engineered to handle such situations. The robust wide-fin radiator design is protected by fine screens, and a variable pitch reversing fan ensures improved airflow.

Purpose-Built Design

Engineered for efficient processing with Komatsu-designed setups, maximizing productivity in forestry operations.

Quick Power for Productivity

Adapt swiftly to sudden changes in load weight without sacrificing productivity. The Auto Power Max feature senses changes and reacts with an 8.5-second burst of additional horsepower, aiding in the delimbing process.

Efficient and Powerful Operation

Achieve exceptional performance with low fuel consumption, courtesy of the powerful PC290LL-11 Size Class engine from the factory. Proprietary Komatsu technology ensures outstanding performance with high fuel efficiency.

Fewer Refueling Trips

Optimize job time with fewer refueling interruptions. The additional fuel storage, located in the rear of the carrier and integrated into the counterweight, provides double the fuel capacity compared to the previous model. (Comparison is made to the PC210LL-10 with 813 L capacity.)
