KOBELCO USA Unveils New Excavator

KOBELCO Construction Machinery USA has announced the launch of its SK300LC-10 excavator in North America.

As part of the revolutionary KOBELCO Generation 10, the SK300LC establishes new standards in value, productivity and durability.

This robust 68,100-lb model is powered by a 252-hp Tier IV Final HINO engine, enabling it to easily tackle heavy-duty applications and remain as one of the most powerful and fuel efficient excavators in its class.

KOBELCO SK300LC delivers a dynamic bucket digging force of 37,300-lbf to achieve leading-class work volume, even while minimizing fuel consumption.

Much of this boost in efficiency comes from a new hydraulic regeneration system, which aids the arm by reusing force generated by the boom, to further minimize energy loss and ensure outstanding performance.

The SK300LC’s new travel motor increases traction force by 10%, enabling it to deliver a drawbar pulling force more powerful than competitive models – without sacrificing travel speed.

The SK300LC is also equipped with independent travel, a KOBELCO exclusive feature that allows the machine to move, lift and swing simultaneously without experiencing loss of power.
