As use of ICT for construction equipment became more common, things like crewless dump trucks, IT execution, and KOMTRAX were further developed. Hybrid equipment that decreased both fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission was introduced and marked a new generation of construction machines.
PC220/PC220LC-10, PC230/PC230LC-10, PC300/PC300LC-10, PC350/PC350LC-10, PC400/PC400LC-10, PC450/PC450LC-10 are newly launched mid and large size hydraulic excavators that meet the 2011 off-road engine emission standards.
They are equipped with the new generation engine that meets emission regulations in Japan, North America and Europe. Coupled with the continued evolution of the 'total vehicle control', that optimizes the action of the body appropriately, they achieve a high level of productivity and significantly reduce fuel consumption.
These excavators also have improved safety features, preventing falls during maintenance and inspection and reducing the risk of theft with newly adopted anti-fall hand rail and the ID key.
The new generation 7- inch HD LCD monitors in the operator's cab ensures safe, correct and smooth work and its display of the eco-guidance supports energy saving operation.

Since its first emergence in 1951, it took only 50 years for the hydraulic shovel to establish its primary position on construction sites worldwide. Its size ranges from mini to super size depending on the scale of construction, and during the half century, it kept evolving by achieving a minimum rear-swing radius and adapting styles that would work with characteristics of each site. Mirroring the movement of a human hand, a hydraulic shovel will continue to evolve during the 21st century.
