Kobelco Construction Machinery Co., Ltd.

For the first time in 10 years, Kobelco is returning on its own to markets in Europe, North America, South America, the Middle East and Russia. At Bauma, Kobelco will jointly exhibit a 26-tonne short radius hydraulic excavator with its sister company Kobelco Cranes Co., Ltd., the SK260SRNLC-3 2 piece boom specification. This excavator is noted for its compactness and high stability. The SK260SRNLC-3 clears the latest exhaust gas emissions limits, using a DPF-equipped Hino engine.

Kobelco’s latest excavator is equipped with a short tail swing feature, which has established Kobelco’s reputation ever since Kobelco entered the European market. Kobelco has also improved its low fuel consumption and low noise technologies. Kobelco’s innovative iNDr (integrated noise and dust reduction) system reduces noise 5 dB in the SK260SRNLC-3 to an low 95 dB in its class. In addition, new hydraulic circuitry, a proprietary technology, reduces pressure loss, resulting in considerable improvement in fuel consumption. In comparison to a conventional SK235SRNLC-2, the new excavator has improved its digging productivity (m3/l) by 6 % in Heavy digging (H) mode and by 9 % in the newly set ECO mode, versus the previous model’s Fuel saving (S) mode.

Due to the high performance of its construction equipment, Kobelco has nearly doubled its market share in Japan, China and Southeast Asia over the past 10 years. Behind the Kobelco brand is a commitment to supplying customers with the most advanced technology available. For example, ­Kobelco’s energy-saving technology is fully utilized in its hybrid excavator, which in 2010 received ­Japan’s Minister of the Environment Award.
