Kobelco has released its Next Generation SK75SR-7 and SK85MSR-7 excavators in its midi range.

"Several years of research and development, including listening to valuable feedback from owners of the previous SK75SR-3 and SK85MSR-3 models, has led to the significant improvements you see in these new models, raising the bar yet again in excavator design and innovation," says Kobelco general manager of product and distribution Mark Johnson says.

"The new SK75SR-7 and SK85MSR-7 excavators offer superior performance, greater efficiency and productivity with increased power and speed. The interior cab fit out presents more like that of a European car than an excavator, providing operators with optimal comfort with a simple and elegant design and aesthetic sense," Johnson says.

Specification include an increase in engine output and lifting capacity. With a digging force of 60.2kN, the arm digging speed is increased by 37 per cent, resulting in reducing the digging cycle time by 15 per cent.

With the Yanmar Tier 4 Final engine, the power output is increased by 27.9 per cent. These new models are set to attain high-performance without reducing the travel speed, even when lifting heavy loads or travelling in hilly and steep areas, says the company.

"The short radius design allows operators to work in compact spaces and Kobelco’s proprietary iNDr system delivers ultra-quiet operation and protection from dust, making them ideal for urban environments. These excavators are also very easy to service and maintain," Johnson says.

The new large sized cab has many great features such as an air suspension seat, ergonomic controls, a smartphone holder, Bluetooth telephone connectivity, a 10-inch colour multi-display monitor, built-in rear, left, and right cameras and more.  

With three model configurations in the new range Kobelco has a solution for all types of work. The notable difference between the SK75SR-7 and SK85MSR-7 is the boom configuration. Different types of boom configuration allow the operator to tackle various challenges on the job site.

The SK75SR-7 is available with fixed mono boom and offset boom configurations.  The SK85MSR-7 is available with swing boom configuration giving major competition to traditional straight-boom midi excavators available in the market.
