Houston, TX ­- Construction equipment: KOBELCO Construction Machinery USA, a provider of crawler excavators, brings its new and improved SK210LC model to market following the relaunch of KOBELCO as an independent brand in North America earlier this year. This mid-size machine was engineered and built to deliver an ideal combination of power, performance and durability on jobsites across the United States and Canada.

The 48,500 lb. SK210 is a rock solid excavator. Equipped with a fuel efficient, 157 hp HINO engine, it provides substantial power while meeting Tier IV fuel emission requirements. To optimize power and fuel consumption the SK210 features three engine operating modes, H for heavy loads, S for standard loads and ECO to reduce fuel consumption when moving lighter loads. Operators can easily switch between modes by simply pressing a button in the cab throughout the course of their workday.

With a digging force of 28,880 lbs., a dig depth of 22 ft and a 1.05 cubic yard bucket, the SK210 is a standout performer. Additionally, it boasts a swing speed of 12.5 rpm for optimal cycle times, ensuring movement of the maximum amount of material each work day.

Unique to KOBELCO, is the SK210¹s independent travel feature. This industry exclusive allows the operator to move, lift and swing simultaneously without stopping or experiencing a loss of power. Not only does this make the machine exceptionally versatile, but it also enhances productivity, usability and safety on the job. This feature is ideal for applications that require movement of pipe from one area of a jobsite to another, then placement of the pipe into a trench. Rather than using multiple machines to handle the work, KOBELCO owners can complete all steps with their SK210.

In addition to excelling in performance and productivity, the SK210 succeeds in providing a comfortable work environment. It features a spacious cab with wide-access for ease of entry and exit, a reclining, double slide seat, air conditioning, AM/FM radio, a large cup holder and a spacious tray for storage of personal belongings. Large windows on all sides of the machine provide operators with excellent visibility. While many manufacturers have obstructed rear views, KOBELCO¹s low profile hood design combined with a standard rear view camera ensure safety behind the machine at all times.

KOBELCO¹s SK210 is built to withstand the day-to-day rigors of the most demanding jobsites. Its rugged construction with a forged and reinforced steel boom, thick boom base, wide welds and heavy-duty counterweight, far exceed the stringent quality standards of today¹s customers. Self-lubricating bushings are used at the attachment pins and abrasion resistant bushings near the bucket for maximum durability over the life of the machine.

Onboard diagnostics come standard with the SK210 and were designed to be extremely intuitive. KOBELCO engineers wrote the user-friendly code for the company¹s KOMEX machine management system so that the operator could quickly gauge crucial machine data on a full color display right from the excavator¹s cab. By monitoring machine data, operators are able to react appropriately when service is needed. No laptops are required in the field to translate complex warning codes or diagnose potential service issues, saving users valuable time.
