SK35SR Is KOBELCO’s Smallest Model with Integrated Noise and Dust Reduction Cooling System (iNDr)
KOBELCO Construction Machinery has enhanced their SK35SR model. It is now the company’s smallest model to feature their exclusive Integrated Noise and Dust Reduction Cooling System (iNDr). The newly redesigned, SK35SR model offers full-size performance with short-radius capabilities, quiet operation and exceptional performance features. Prior to the SK35SR, KOBELCO’s iNDr system was only available in larger-model excavators.
This compact, robust machine incorporates KOBELCO’s iNDr technology into an advanced dual arrangement cooling system – the iNDr and eco-friendly system (iNDr+E). KOBELCO’s iNDr+E feature utilizes the same high-tech iNDr system found in the company’s conventional excavators but differs by directing the muffler exhaust underneath the machine. In addition, the SK35SR’s cooling system suppresses the machine’s noise to a low 76 decibels.
The SK35SR’s iNDr+E system also provides superior protection from dust. An advanced filter takes outside air from the intake duct and moves it through the filter. This process keeps cooling components dirt-free, making the machine low-maintenance. KOBELCO’s SK35SR also allows for easy access to the cooling unit, where the filter itself can be easily removed and cleaned without the use of tools. Easy access to the engine compartment and electrical components ensure convenient day-to-day maintenance.
The SK35SR supplies ample muscle for heavy-duty digging and lifting, while its short tail swing radius makes it ideal for work in confined spaces. This versatile, 8,200-pound machine boasts a digging force of 5,418 pounds coupled with a dig depth of 10 feet and a suggested bucket capacity of 3.88 cubic yards. Equipped with a largecapacity, 23.1-hp engine that meets Tier 4 Final requirements, KOBELCO’s SK35SR packs plenty of power and outstanding hydraulic performance. Designed with an integrated-flow pump system, automatic two-speed travel shift, and a new 4-way blade option, the SK35SR provides greater travel power and dozer performance,
The excavator utilizes innovative energy conservation elements, including an “S” mode, which enables the machine to use 25 percent less fuel than its predecessor, as well as a one-touch deceleration button. This feature allows for easy switching to idle mode, which significantly reduces fuel consumption while the machine is at rest. The SK35SR is available with a high-strength cab that meets ROPS and FOPS standards, or an exclusive, newly designed canopy that meets all three TOPS, ROPS and FOPS standards, both of which ensure reliable structure and greater operator safety.
