Kobelco goes big and small at Intermat

Kobelco’s 1500m stand at Intermat will be dominated by the all-new SK520LC-11E excavator, making its European debut and replacing the SK500-11 model.

The new machine is heavier at 53t operating weight, giving improved stability, and it offers increased bucket and arm force for better overall lifting performance.

The SK520L uses an Isuzu engine rather than the Hino that was fitted to the SK500.

Also new is the new SK380SRLC-7 is Kobelco’s largest short radius excavator and replaces the 380SRLC. It has 6% more power, using a 210kW Isuzu engine. The replacement interval on the DPF filter has been increased from 4500 hours to 8000 hours.

Kobelco’s stand will include a dedicated area for its short radius excavators.

The company – which will highlight its new ‘built for performance’ tagline at Intermat – will show several mini and midi excavators, and on the demolition side, will have the SK350DLC-11E, which is an update on the -11 model, now using an Isuzu rather than Hino engine.

Makoto Kato, managing director of Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe, says; “We are excited to return to Intermat this year – France is a particularly important country for KCME and we are proud to be able to support our dealers and customers by investing in this event for a third consecutive time.”
