Naidu’s In­fra­con picks Ko­belco’s ex­ca­va­tor model 10th gen­er­a­tion


Naidu's In­fra­con Pvt Ltd, a Mum­baibased in­fra­struc­ture development com­pany, en­gaged in ex­ca­va­tion & earth­mov­ing jobs, has bought the world-class Hy­draulic Ex­ca­va­tor Gen­er­a­tion 10 SK220XDLC-10 ex­ca­va­tor man­u­fac­tured by Ko­belco Con­struc­tion Equip­ment In­dia

Pvt. Ltd. (KCEI). Hav­ing used Ko­belco ex­ca­va­tor mod­els SK210 and SK350, along with other brands, the com­pany’s de­ci­sion to equip it­self with the lat­est model from Ko­belco was a quick de­ci­sion.

The key hand­ing cer­e­mony took place at the site of Dosti Re­al­ity in Wadala, Mumbai. “We are al­ways happy with the work­ing per­for­mance of Ko­belco ma­chines. This year, when we thought of up­grad­ing our in­ven­tory, we didn’t have to think much be­fore choos­ing Ko­belco,” says K. Sukesh Naidu, Di­rec­tor, Naidu’s In­fra­con, who was di­rectly in­volved in the se­lec­tion of the ex­ca­va­tor.

The new ex­ca­va­tor was handed over by KCEI and Mumbai-based Suretech In­fra­struc­ture Pvt. Ltd, a dealer of Ko­belco prod­ucts. Giv­ing its fea­tures, Danny D’souza, Mar­ket­ing Man­ager, Suretech In­fra­struc­ture, said, “The SK220XDLC-10 is ex­tremely pow­er­ful in terms of its struc­ture, pro­duc­tiv­ity and ben­e­fit to the cus­tomers. XD stands for ‘Ex­treme Duty’ which is built-in to with­stand the tough­est of con­di­tions in In­dia.

Ko­belco Gen­er­a­tion 10 ex­ca­va­tor is de­vel­oped along six key pa­ram­e­ters: higher fuel econ­omy, more re­li­a­bil­ity, bet­ter per­for­mance, greater com­fort, eas­ier main­te­nance, and en­vi­ron­ment friendly – all of which are most crit­i­cal from the user’s per­spec­tive.

Danny D'souza af­firms, “The im­proved SK220XDLC-10, an up­graded ver­sion of 210 with the rev­o­lu­tion­ary Hy­draulics Tech­nol­ogy Arm Re­gen­er­a­tion Sys­tem - de­liv­ers a high-powered out­put and is 19% more fuel-ef­fi­cient than the ear­lier model. Thus, the tagline ‘Power Meets Ef­fi­ciency’.”

Ac­cord­ing to the man­u­fac­turer, the ex­ca­va­tor’s ma­te­rial thick­ness has been en­hanced by 15 to 50% to give more life and strength. Its re­li­a­bil­ity has been greatly im­proved by the de­sign us­ing heav­ier plates and more ef­fec­tive fil­tra­tion sys­tems. There is a new un­der-body cover to pre­vent dam­age to the com­po­nents from stones or boul­ders.

K. Babu Naidu, CMD, Naidu’s In­fra­con, adds, “We wanted to bring higher pro­duc­tiv­ity, speed and eco­nom­i­cal so­lu­tions to our clients, with­out com­pro­mis­ing on safety. With the value ad­di­tions to the new ma­chine, we are con­fi­dent that it will de­liver as per our ex­pec­ta­tions in any chal­leng­ing project where the soil and other con­di­tions are tough.”

Ac­cord­ing to KCEI’s As­so­ci­ate Gen­eral Man­ager, San­deep Navshinde, a re­li­able prod­uct is one that works for a longer pe­riod and gives value for money. “We have made the ma­chine struc­ture of SK220 stronger than the ear­lier model SK210, mainly, the boom plates, arm plates, bucket and un­der­car­riage, to in­crease its life. Per­for­mance-wise, SK220 de­liv­ers the high­est power in its class, and in min­ing, ex­ca­va­tion or earth­work, it will give max­i­mum pro­duc­tiv­ity.”

While buy­ing equip­ment, a customer also looks for prod­uct spec­i­fi­ca­tions, ser­vice, and easy avail­abil­ity of spare parts, and Ko­belco de­liv­ers most ef­fi­ciently on all these fronts. KCEI’s strong net­work of 28 deal­ers across In­dia, sup­port its cus­tomers through 150 out­lets, and spare parts and ser­vice sta­tions are present at ev­ery 150 km across the coun­try.

Danny D’souza, says, “Fuel ef­fi­ciency and pro­duc­tiv­ity are the two ma­jor fac­tors driv­ing the ex­ca­va­tor mar­ket in In­dia. Af­ter-sales sup­port is also a crit­i­cal area as a customer can­not af­ford the small­est of break­downs in a ma­chine. Ko­belco ex­ca­va­tors have proven their per­for­mance over the years and SK220XDLC-10 is likely to set new bench­marks in per­for­mance and pro­duc­tiv­ity.”
