Ko­belco has in­tro­duced the new SK12SR mini-ex­ca­va­tor, a 1.2-tonne model that sits be­tween the com­pany’s 1-tonne and 1.7-tonne ma­chines.

The SK12SR is set to be launched of­fi­cially on to the Aus­tralian mar­ket at the 2018 Diesel, Dirt & Turf Expo in Pen­rith, NSW from Fri­day to Sun­day, April 13-15. The mini-ex­ca­va­tor will form a cen­tral part of the Ko­belco dis­play.

The com­pany says the new model is an easyto-use work­horse par­tic­u­larly suited to work­ing in con­fined spa­ces and fea­tures pi­lot-con­trolled op­er­a­tion rather than front-con­trol levers.

“Ko­belco mini-ex­ca­va­tors are known for their tough­ness and dura­bil­ity,” Ko­belco general manager of sales and ser­vice Doug McQuinn says. “The SK12SR is a ver­sa­tile ma­chine, great for those jobs in closely con­fined spa­ces, and the pi­lot-con­trolled op­er­a­tion of­fers ex­cep­tional ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity that gives the op­er­a­tor the con­fi­dence and com­fort to get the job done well.

“We re­leased this ma­chine to bridge the gap be­tween the Ko­belco SK008 and the SK17SR mini-ex­ca­va­tors.

“You may be car­ry­ing out land­scap­ing works, lay­ing ca­ble, or build­ing verges – this is a sta­ble ma­chine with rugged con­struc­tion and un­der­side pro­tec­tion to keep your down­time down.”

The SK12SR comes with a four-year/4000-hour full war­ranty as stan­dard.

“It’s the best of both worlds with this new model: power and pre­ci­sion with­out the bulk of a larger ma­chine, plus a re­li­able war­ranty to back it up,” McQuinn says.
