Komatsu plans to develop two versions of its PC800LC-8, that have been factory-designed with additional auxiliary hydraulic circuits and safety valves to mount large hydraulic attachments, one designed specifically for use with breakers and the other able to mount large demolition attachments up to 8.5 tonne in weight. The breaker model features accumulator installations of both sides of the boom to reduce peak pressure and improve reliability, new boom and arm piping, a filter installation in the boom foot area and a direct return line to the tank for low back pressure, with breaker activation through a pedal in the cab. The tool carrier version carries a new long boom and arm and the piping required for two hydraulic circuits and a drain line, an unloader valve to reduce return back pressure and accumulators in the circuit for breaker operation and shear break through.
