Kobelco Construction Machinery USA is introducing the upgraded SK140SRLC-5 excavator to North America. The model retains its compact design and short rear swing agility while providing value, productivity and durability through enhanced capabilities.

The Kobelco SK140SRLC delivers unmatched performance and boasts a dynamic digging force of 21,357 pounds – even while minimizing fuel consumption. Its compact design and long digging reach capabilities provide a broad working range and easy maneuverability, while its top-of-class digging depth of 19 feet 7 inches and impressive swing speed of 11 rpm shorten the cycle times. In addition, the SK140SRLC’s strong drawbar pulling force produces powerful travel capabilities, enabling it to tackle steep and rough terrain with ease.

Independent travel, an exclusive Kobelco feature, allows the SK140SRLC to move, lift and swing simultaneously without experiencing loss of power. A variety of operating modes also enable the SK140SRLC to supply the perfect balance of fuel economy and jobsite productivity to suit the needs of the day. The upgraded model boasts a 21 percent decrease in fuel consumption while operating in ECO-mode and delivers a 5.2 percent increase in work volume per hour while in H-Mode.

Equipped with ISUZU’s renowned Tier 4 Final engine, the Kobelco SK140SRLC delivers full-size power and superior efficiency. Its new engine is fitted with a diesel oxidation catalyst and selective catalytic reduction system to control emissions without using a diesel particulate filter. This system ultimately decreases NOx emissions by 88 percent while providing the lowest possible operation costs. Kobelco also redesigned the SK140SRLC’s iNDr configuration to include a revolutionary double offset duct structure which allows the machine to suppress noise to a minimal 70-dB.

Maintenance on the SK140SRLC is quick and cost efficient. Easy access to the cooling unit, engine compartment and electrical components ensure convenient day-to-day maintenance. A machine information display provides data from the operation management system to greatly improve ease of maintenance scheduling and secure a long service life. Operators can also expect extended service intervals for engine oil, hydraulic oil, filter changes and greasing.

When it comes to comfort, the Kobelco SK140SRLC delivers intuitive operation and comprehensive safety. The expanded cab boasts various features including an optimized control layout, wide access doors for ease of entry and exit and an adjustable suspension seat to lessen operator fatigue. A powerful air conditioner, radio with USB, Bluetooth and auxiliary capabilities, large cup holder and ample leg room give operators a pleasant work environment on even the toughest of work days. Furthermore, windows on all sides, as well as a rear view and right side camera, provide excellent visibility to ensure safe operation.

The enhanced KOBELCO SK140SRLC delivers unmatched power and performance capabilities.
