When we set out to design our new hydraulic excavators, we kept our eyes on the big picture
Of course we wanted machines with greater digging capacity. But they also had to be fuel-efficient and economical, while imposing less of a burden on the local and global environments. Applying our advanced technologies, we developed KOBELCO's SK series, an entirely new kind of excavator that beautifully balances all the demands of today's construction industry.
Lean and efficient with capacity to spare, these sleek powerhouses bring a whole new style to the worksite while setting new standards for environmental responsibility.
NEXT-3E Technology Next-Generation Electronic Engine Control
The high-pressure, common-rail fuel-injection engine features adjustable control to maximize fuel efficiency and provide powerful medium/lowspeed torque. The result is a highly fuel-efficient engine.
Attachment Mode Selector Switch (Optional)
There's a choice of three different hydraulic circuits, to accommodate bucket, crusher or breaker, and the desired attachment mode can be selected with a switch, which automatically configures the selector valve. All attachment modes can be used in either Smode or H-mode.
Seamless, Smooth Combined Operations
The SK series machines have inherited the various systems that make inching and combined operations easy and accurate, with further refinements that make a good thing even better. Leveling and other combined operations can be carried out with graceful ease.
Stable Attachment Strength
Forged and cast steel components are used throughout. The standard arm and boom also meet specifications that were classified as “reinforced” on previous KOBELCO models to ensure reliable strength.
Comfortable "On the Ground" Maintenance
The machine layout was designed with easy inspection and maintenance in mind.
Highly Durable Super-fine Filter
The high-capacity hydraulic oil filter incorporates glass fiber with superior cleaning power and durability. With a replacement cycle of 1,000 hours and a construction that allows replacement of the filter element only, it's both highly effective and highly economical.
