Kobelco’s Generation 6 excavators may be small, but Kobelco as a specialist in earthmoving and construction machines deliver big savings when it comes to operating costs. The SK35SR-6 and SK30SR-6 deliver high performance with exceptional fuel economy, and are set to be class leaders in the in the 3-4 tonne category.
Kobelo mini excavators, which are powered by powerful Yanmar (3TNV82) engines, are ideal for general purpose construction and landscaping projects and offer a dramatic reduction in fuel consumption over dash-5 models. For example, fuel consumption is reduced by a remarkable 25% in S-mode, while a 15% decrease can be realised in H-mode.
The Generation 6 models also feature Kobelco’s Integrated Noise and Dust Reduction Cooling System (iNDr) – a first for the mini excavator range. This system enables easy access to the air filter, which is now mounted in front of the radiator system, prevents damaging the radiator during cleaning and reduces downtime for day-to-day maintenance. Use of innovative iNDr technology also contributes to a decrease in machine noise for greater operator comfort. A reduction of around 7 dB over the previous equivalent models has been achieved with the latest Generation 6 machines, which is an important consideration for urban and residential job sites.
