Higher productivity

In addition to a compact size, the PW160-11 has an unbeatable lifting capacity. The combination of power, weight distribution, favorable dimensions and full control makes the machine the first choice for heavy lifting work and simple excavation assignments on narrow roads, and for road and sewer systems.

Komatsu fuel-saving technology

The fuel consumption of the PW160-11 has been reduced by up to 4%. The engine control system has been improved. The variable speed adjustment of motor and hydraulic pumps guarantees efficiency and precision both during single movements and combined movements. A viscose clutch allows for variable cooling fan speed to further reduce fuel consumption.

Adjustable auto idle stop

To reduce unnecessary fuel consumption and exhaust emissions, as well as to reduce operating costs, Komatsu’s auto idle stop will automatically stop the engine after it has been idling for a certain period. It can be easily programmed from 5 to 60 minutes. An eco-meter and eco-tips on the screen in the cab further contribute to efficient operation.

Komatsu EU Stage IV

Komatsu EU Stage IV is a productive, reliable, and efficient engine. With extremely low emissions, it provides a better environmental footprint and superior performance. This reduces operating costs, while at the same time giving the driver less to think about in the SCR work.

Effective exhaust treatment

The finishing system combines a Komatsu catalyst (KDOC) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR). The SCR system injects the correct amount of AdBlue® with the correct ratio to break down NOx into water (H2O) and harmless nitrogen gas (N2).



Ideal for a wide range of applications Komatsu PW160-11 is equipped to perform all kinds of tasks, in an efficient way. On small or large plants, for excavation, digging, landscaping, or site work, Komatsu’s original hydraulic system always ensures maximum productivity and control.

Extra hydraulic outlet

To be able to use many types of implements, such as buckets, hammers and bucket grabs, an additional hydraulic circuit that is controlled with a slider on the digging lever is standard on the PW160-11. To further increase usability and flexibility, an additional hydraulic circuit and an extra hydraulically operated quick coupling bracket can also be supplied. Together with Komatsu’s integrated control of work tools (KIAC), this means that replacement and operation of various tools is carried out quickly and easily.

Towing hook for trailer

For increased versatility, the PW160-11 can be equipped with either ball coupling for car, ball coupling for agriculture, or automatic ball coupling for truck (for trailers up to 7.5 tons with brake). All necessary electrical and hydraulic connection equipment is included, including two chassis circuits for tilting, or operating the tailgate. These trailer functions can be operated with the digging levers in the cab.



Increased comfort

SpaceCab ™ gives you a comfortable and calm working environment with superb visibility around the workplace. The cab is ROPS approved, specially designed by Komatsu for hydraulic excavators, and the reinforced frame of tubular construction is mounted on viscose dampers to ensure low vibration. The standard steering wheel with telescopic function can be easily adjusted to your height and sitting position.

Premium comfort seat

The premium comfort seat comes with sprung excavator lever consoles, top-level damping, automatic weight control, pneumatic lumbar support, and a climate control system for perfect adjustment of the seat temperature.

Low noise construction

Komatsu wheeled excavators have a very low external noise level and are particularly suitable for work in cramped places and in densely populated areas. Optimal use of noise-reducing and noise-absorbing materials helps to provide a very low internal noise level.

Improved driver environment

With increased storage space in the cab, AUX input (Mp3 input) and 12 V and 24 V power supply, the cab provides extra comfort. The automatic climate system allows the driver to control the indoor climate easily and accurately.

Load damping (ECSS)

Load damping (ECSS) provides noticeably better comfort when driving over bumps.
