Kobelco Construction Machinery USA recently introduced the enhanced SK75SR-7 and SK85CS-7 excavator models in North America. This next generation of Kobelco SR Series units set the standard for mid-size machines, offering full-size benefits with short rear swing capabilities and exceptional features.
Performance enhancements allow the SK75SR-7 and SK85CS-7 to deliver greater efficiency and productivity as well as increased power and speed than preceding models. With a dynamic digging force of 14,070-lbs and an impressive ~37% increase in digging speed, the SK75SR-7 and SK85CS-7 deliver continuous operation and reduce cycle times by ~15%. A new Tier IV Final engine increases power output by ~28% and enables both machines to maintain superior productivity and efficiency — even while working at high power levels, lifting heavy loads, or traveling on steep grades.
The SK75SR-7 and SK85CS-7 feature a compact design and long digging reach to provide easy maneuverability and a broad working range. Enhanced multi-function capabilities include an attachment selection system with adjustable flow-rate presets for the bucket, breaker, nibbler and thumb, allowing the operator to change between tools quickly and easily. The SK75SR-7 and SK85CS-7 also feature the exclusive Kobelco iNDr Cooling System to deliver ultra-quiet operation.
When it comes to comfort and maintenance, the SK75SR-7 and SK85CS-7 offer intuitive operation and comprehensive safety. These Kobelco machines come standard with an ergonomic lever and air ride suspension seat to reduce operating force and fatigue by ~25%. Both models also boast various cab features, including an optimized control layout with a new jog dial and 10-inch color monitor. Built in rear, left and right-side cameras with a customizable split-screen display function enhances operator awareness and jobsite safety. Furthermore, easy access to the cooling unit, engine compartment and electrical components ensure convenient day-to-day maintenance.
