Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe (KCME) has announced its attendance at the GaLaBau international trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany, on September 12 to 15. Germany is one of the important markets for Kobelco with huge potential for growth, particularly in the mini and midi excavator sector, so the manufacturer will be using the event as a strategic platform to showcase its latest models.
As a leading excavator specialist, Kobelco is committed to manufacturing the best machines in class and mini excavators are key to its overall product line-up. In the past three years, the Japanese manufacturer has significantly invested in developing and improving this popular smaller weight category and currently offers a wide range of models from small 1 t and short radius machines for compact job sites, to larger models up to 8.5 t.
This means that many of the technologies from the larger-capacity models can now be found in Kobelco’s mini excavators. For example, the iNDr (Integrated Noise & Dust Reduction cooling system) technology was initially introduced for the larger short radius machines but has now been integrated in several mini excavators from the SK28SR-6 upwards. This means that customers of the smaller-capacity machines can also benefit from the same reliability and low noise operation, which is ideal for working in urban areas.
