Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe has introduced two new 21 tonne class tracked excavators in the shape of the SK210LC-9 and SK210NLC-9. Built in Japan, the two machines are Stage 3B/Tier IV compliant with regard to emissions through the use of the Hino JO6E-T53 turbocharged diesel. They offer three work modes - Heavy, Standard and ECO – and feature automatic idle stop to help reduce fuel consumption.

According to the company, the new machines offer a 4.7% reduction in fuel consumption in Heavy mode against the models they replace, with corresponding reductions of 5% in Standard and 17.3% in Eco. Maximum poer and torque output provides smooth progressive travel on all types of terrain and optimised lift, swing and dig action of the arm. According to the company, a state-of-the-art hydraulic control system complements the precise and seamless arm operation with less engine performance input required to also help reduce fuel consumption.
