Kobelco Construction Machinery has introduced three new excavators that are aimed squarely at European customers. The new Japanese-built SK260LC-9, SK350LC-9 and SK500LC-9 are the second wave of machines released this year by Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe B.V. (KCME) and further extend the company’s range of specialist earthmoving and construction excavators.

Built at the state-of-the-art Kobelco factory in Hiroshima, the SK260LC-9, SK350LC-9 and SK500LC-9 models are said to boast high performance and state-of-the-art efficiency from proven, reliable technology.

With turbocharged and greatly enhanced energy-efficient Hino engines, the three large-capacity machines deliver greater productivity* for each litre of fuel used. In addition, by employing the latest engine and engine management technology, an 88% reduction in exhaust particulate matters – without loss in work performance – contributes to a cleaner environment now and in the future.

Efficient operation and exceptional performance are key requisites for excavator owners, and Kobelco is a leader in these areas. The Japanese manufacturer is also at the forefront of operational control, ability and precision. The ergonomic cab design with large working space is noticeable the moment the operator easily enters the cab by the wide cabin door and views the working area through broad tinted glass. Intuitive, one touch controls and easy-read displays go hand in hand with the responsive, smooth and precise action of controls and machine in all working conditions.

To further ensure operators benefit from Kobelco design and experience, automatic air conditioning, safety cameras and adjustable seating are all standard features. Easy routine maintenance, extended service intervals and regional spare parts back up complete the Kobelco experience.
