    Machine summary


    Komatsu’s PC238USLC-11 is up to 4% more productive than its predecessor, the PC238USLC-10, and we can attest to that. With highly improved engine performance due to its fan clutch, it reduces parasitic load remarkably. Plus, its new auto-idle shut-down feature curtails engine usage and operating costs, saving you time and money.

    There are a few similarities with the PC238USLC-10, like the tight tail swing radius making it convenient for working around obstacles, tight spaces, and even highway and utility applications. 

    You will also enjoy the machine’s molded cab profile and user-friendly sliding doors allowing the cab to swing within the same radius as the counterweight. What’s more, Komatsu’s PC238USLC-11’s counterweight offers an improved lift capacity compared to conventional models. 

    In terms of performance, we found it highly productive in the most demanding applications, including demolition, mining, excavation, and more. 

    Power:  This model is as powerful as it gets for your projects. It is powered by a 6.69-lited Komatsu SAA6D107E-3 engine with an imposing 167 net horsepower. Its engine engages Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), a diesel particulate filter (DPF), and Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) with diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). 

    Efficiency: While its counterweight remains standard, the PC238USLC-11’s lift capacity is equal to or better than conventional models in the same size class. A new engine and hydraulic control technology highly improves operational efficiency and increases productivity up to 4%. It also offers a quick response to the operator’s demands with its Closed-Center Load Sensing System (CLSS) for improved fuel efficiency. 

    Visibility:  The PC238USLC-11 offers a “bird’s eye view” thanks to its superb KomVision camera system and clear-cut images given by three cameras, giving the operator a general view of the machine from the inside of the cab. 

    Versatility: To increase production and efficiency, the PC238USLC-11 allows you to add a GPS. As for the operator, you get handy 12-volt power ports, a secondary engine shutdown switch, optional hydraulic control for one-way and two-way attachment flow, and more—making operation as practical and versatile as it gets.

    Q. What kind of insurance do I need for my excavator rental?

    Heavy equipment insurance is required on all rental products, no matter where they come from. Get a hold of your insurance provider and let them know you need heavy equipment insurance, which is sometimes called contractor equipment insurance, or fleet-truck insurance. Tell them that you’re renting a Komatsu PC138 and let them know how long you’re renting it for. They will likely be able to create a policy for you right away, or they can usually recommend a heavy equipment insurance provider in your area.

    Q. What should I do when I receive my rental?

    As soon as your rental is delivered, we recommend taking photos of the exterior and cab for your records. Check out our tutorial video on how to take these photos before you start operating your equipment.

    Q. How do I end my rental?

    It’s very simple. As soon as you’re done with your Komatsu PC138 rental, call or text one of our administrators at 604-359-6057 to close your rental period. Make sure that you’ve refilled the fuel gauge to the same amount it was at prior to your usage, and that the machinery is clean and free from any compiled residue from your previous job. Lastly, take the same pictures as you did before your rental and send them over to us to confirm that everything is in the same condition. Then, just leave the keys out of sight or under the mat so that one of our staff members can pick up the equipment.

    We provide quick delivery on all skid steer rentals, excavator and mini-excavator rentals, and compact track loader rentals throughout the Lower Mainland of Greater Vancouver. See our delivery rates and our daily, weekly, and monthly rental rates for more details.
