The Kobelco SK28SR, SK30SR and SK35SR expand the horizons of mini excavators, and offer practical performance features while maintaining a short tail swing. The new Energy Conservation Mode saves even more fuel, and Kobelco’s proprietary iNDr Cooling System ensures quiet operation, protection from dust, and easy maintenance. For greater operator comfort and safety, the spacious cab design offers plenty of room and an unobstructed view.

Piping for quick hitch is fitted as standard, along with a colour LCD monitor that provides easy access to all machine operational data.

The compact tail swing improves operating efficiency in tight spaces. With an overall height of 2,510mm, this excavator is designed for easy transport. Larger boom and arm are provided as standard equipment to ensure a wider working range. Digging performance is outstanding, with a multiple pump flow-sharing system providing flow of 28.8 L/min and pressure of 23.0 MPa (relief valve setting), providing ample power for the task at hand.

Operators will appreciate that Kobelco’s unique blade design is purpose-built to form earth into an arc that always falls forward, minimising instances of material spilling over the blade. The high-strength cab/canopy meets ROPS and TOPS Level 1 standards for greater operator safety. The boom, arm and swing bracket all have large cross-section segments for added attachment strength, ensuring a long service life and excellent resale.
