Small Kobelco demolition model’s Europe launch
15 October 2018
Following the introduction of the SK400DLC-10 and SK550DLC-10 in January, Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe (KCME) has launched the all-new SK350DLC-10 – the manufacturer’s smallest machine designed exclusively for the demolition sector.
Despite its smaller size, the versatile new model has many of the same features as the larger models, which are designed to aid the safe and quick assembly/disassembly of attachments and maintenance, easy transportation between projects and significant cost savings.
Like the SK400DLC-10 and SK550DLC-10, the new SK350DLC-10 features the Kobelco-developed Next system. This is a common base machine with dedicated attachments for both high elevation demolition work and breaking up foundations. The attachments can be easily changed onsite.
The SK350DLC-10’s Next ultra-high attachment is best suited to the demolition of multi-storey buildings from ground level – its ultra-long attachment configuration enables it to work to a maximum height of 21m (68 ft) with a maximum tool weight of 2.6 t.
The machine’s separate boom configuration is said to be ideal for demolishing the lower floors of buildings where the concrete is at its thickest – the maximum working depth of the SK350DLC-10 is 6,320 mm (20 ft 9 in).
“Customer feedback on the Kobelco SK400DLC-10 and SK550DLC-10 following their introduction earlier this year has been very positive, but we found that there was also a demand for a smaller version,” said product manager Peter Stuijt.
“The SK350DLC-10 may be smaller, but there is no compromise on technology. The inclusion of the versatile Next system, which enables both high reach and basement demolition with the same machine, is testament to this.”
