Kobelco aims for big performance from new small machines
29 March 2023
Kobelco Construction Machinery has introduce the next generation SK34SR-7 and SK39SR-7 to its mini excavator range.
According to Kobelco, mini excavators can play an important role on any jobsite despite their small size. Their working footprint enables access to restricted spaces and the inside of buildings, while they can also provide key support to larger construction projects.
With this in mind, Kobelco continually reviews and improves its mini excavator range to meet increasing operator demands.
The new Kobelco SK34SR-7 and SK39SR-7 replace the previous SK30SR-6E and SK35SR-6E and are said to offer increased engine performance, improved operability, an updated cabin interior and easier maintenance.
Engine output has been increased from 18 to 19 kW, and the size of the bucket cylinders from 65 to 70 mm, resulting in a 15% increase in bucket digging force to 32 kN. In addition, the boom cylinder bore has been increased from 80 to 85 mm for improved lifting capacity.
Product manager Wesley Elverding said: “We’re always listening to our customers to understand what they need from their mini excavators.
“The introduction of the new SK34SR-7 and SK39SR-7 demonstrates how we are developing our mini excavator technology and machine concepts to better suit the needs of our operators as well as more demanding jobsite conditions.”
