Kobelco Cranes launches new crawler cranes: SL6000G/SL4500G and SL6000S/SL4500S

Further evolution of the SL series with improved assembly/transport/crane capabilities and environmentally-friendly engines to meet the latest regulations

Kobelco Cranes Co., Ltd. announces the development of their fully hydraulic crawler cranes SL6000G/SL4500G (lifting capacities: 550 tons/400tons) and SL6000S/SL4500S (lifting capacities: 550 tons/400 tons).
SL6000G/SL4500G is equipped with engines that meet EPA Interim Tier IV and Euro stage IIIB emission regulations, therefore quieter and smoother, proactively addressing safety and ecological considerations.

The newly developed SL6000G/SL4500G and SL6000S/SL4500S are redesigned models of the highly successful SL6000 and SL4500, and this evolved SL series with improved modernized cabs, user-friendly interface with touch screen technology, improved transport, logistics and efficiency.

Additionally, enhanced crane capacities which will surely be favoured at many construction sites.

In recent years, large crawler cranes were expected to be safer and more environmentally friendly and to have improved operational performance and transportability. Kobelco will, as always, strive to be innovative and to meet customers’ needs by further expanding the lineup of crawler cranes and improving customers’ satisfaction.

Main Features of the SL6000G/SL4500G and SL6000S/SL4500S
