Excavator at Excon 2015
OBELCO, a subsidiary of Japan-based Kobelco Construction Machinery Ltd, has been a regular participant at EXCON since their entry in the Indian market in 2007. At the latest edition of EXCON, the now ‘Made in India’ hydraulic excavator model SK140HDLC was on display. This is a strong contender in the growing 14-ton segment. This is a highly versatile machine suitable for many applications and carries several key features as standard fitment though the same are either not offered at all or are available as options on other makes in the same range. Long undercarriage, AC cabin with climate control, Geoscan for remote monitoring, and additional circuit for breaker operation are some of the features.
Also on display is the technologically-improved 52-ton Hydraulic Excavator SK500 AT with new options for achieving higher fuel saving or increased Output. Either way, there is a clear improvement in the machine’s productivity. The Owner is able to get higher returns on his investment. ANext-Gen Software has been used to improve machine performance. This machine is a leading contender in this fast-growing segment and the new improvements would definitely give it an edge over others.
Kobelco offers the OKADA range of breakers through its network. After a series of prolonged field tests, a new range is now introduced. Kobelco is also increasing the range of attachments to be offered to Customers to match with their specific requirements. Some buckets for coal & marble/granite mining as well as for quarry application were on display. These are heavy duty buckets specially designed for maximum productivity.
