We are excited to announce the launch of additional models to the mini excavator range with great features that are ideal for the trades and hire market.
Kobelco’s General Manager – Sales & Service, Doug McQuinn, says the four new Kobelco models in its mini excavator range have been engineered specifically for ease of operation and servicing.
“The models are very versatile and are solid performers. They’re easy to use but they work hard.”
The 1.7 tonne SK17SR: This model has hydraulic retractable side frames for nimble tracking. The frames also have a self-cleaning mechanism that forcibly discharges mud to prevent malfunction in the variable undercarriage.
The 2 tonne SK20SR: This model has guards on all cylinders and boom lights that are positioned on the underside of the boom to prevent damage caused by contact.
The 1 tonne SK008: A variable undercarriage allows the left and right tracks to raise and lower independently to correct the machine’s angle on slopes. The crawler width can be reduced to only 680mm, so the unit will fit through a standard doorway and the model features folding ROPS canopy.
The 2.6 tonne SK25SR available in April has superior lifting capacity, max digging force and hydraulic flow for attachments compared to its main competitors, but is light enough to be transported on a trailer even with additional attachments. A reclining operator’s seat provides a comfortable working environment for the operator.
