First delivery of the new Kobelco 30-tonne SK300LC-10 excavator has gone to Queensland-based sub-contracting business Coleman Drainage, which specialises in large-scale trenching, infrastructure and subdivision work.
Mike Coleman, Manager at Coleman Drainage, says the delivery of the new 30-tonne excavator from Kobelco distributor BrisVegas Machinery filled a gap in their fleet.
‘Every year we get a new Kobelco machine, and we’re glad this new model has been released – it’s perfect for some of our more involved projects where we need a heavy excavator that’s big, but not too big,’ Mike says.
‘Like the other Kobelco Generation 10 machines we have in our fleet, we love the upgraded features for fuel efficiency because it’s not compromising the excavator’s power. The Kobelco’s fuel efficiency is one of the big advantages of these machines – we operate by the bucket, not by the hour, so we need to keep fuel minimised and power maximised,’ says Mike.
Coleman Drainage have a long association with Kobelco excavators, taking delivery of their first machine ten years ago and in that time building their total up to 13 with the SK300LC-10. Mike says the machines are used in an array of work ranging from sewer mains, to storm water drains and culverts and water reticulation.
