Kobelco strengthens its mini excavator range
Japanese manufacturer reveals new SK26SR-7 and updated SK28SR-7 models Kobelco is dedicated to the development of its extensive mini excavator line-up and continually seeks ways to utilise technologies from its larger machines, and redesign existing models to help meet changing customer demands. With this in mind, Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe B.V. (KCME) is pleased to launch the brand new SK26SR-7 and the next generation SK28SR-7, which features a number of important improvements.
Mini excavators are frequently used for landscaping, utilities and small construction or industrial projects and operators can often find themselves working long hours inside the cabin. As a result, the two new models follow Kobelco’s stunning Performance x Design concept, which promotes superior performance, a more comfortable cabin and improved working environment. Ideal for jobsites where space is restricted, the Kobelco SK26SR-7 and SK28SR-7 have short radius designs. Importantly, the machines’ short tail swing provides excellent accessibility when working next to walls or digging close to ditches and offers a smaller operating footprint.
“Our mini excavator line-up is extensive, but we recognised that the 2.5-tonne segment could be further enhanced to better meet customer requirements. As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, the SK26SR-7 and SK28SR-7 build on Kobelco’s reputation for reliability and performance and incorporate several new features to boost their capabilities and really set them apart from the competition.”
