Digging performance is outstanding, with a multiple pump flow-sharing system providing pump flow of 38.4 L/min and pressure of 23.0 MPa (relief valve setting), maintaining ample power for any task at hand. Energy Conservation Mode – equipped with ‘S’ mode, which lowers fuel consumption by up to 25% over previous models.

A hydraulic pilot-controlled dozer operation lever is provided for increased accuracy and control. 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 spacious cab provides an optimised control layout for comfortable, easy operation. A greater window area further improves visibility. A clear view is provided at the rear, and there’s also more floor space, with a seat that slides further to ensure plenty of leg room. Easier maintenance, with a fully-opening engine hood and equipment that requires the most frequent checks positioned to be readily visible.

The SK30SR includes Kobelco’s exclusive iNDr cooling system reducing heat, noise and dust penetration and comes with standard factory quick hitch piping and colour LCD screen, making it a stand-out machine in the 3T class.
