“Its compact design makes it easy to manoeuvre on the job site but it is still very stable too. I am also very pleased with the machine’s fuel economy – we seem to be using a lot less fuel with this machine than we were previously.”read my story
ELV dismantling Kobelco way
The act of stripping each vehicle isn’t completely machine-led like some mainland European ELV centres.
Manual labour is employed to remove specific key components – tires, wheels, engine and gearbox, catalytic converters, radiators – on some vehicles. However, the heart of the operation is a Kobelco SK210D-10 multi-dismantling machine.
To celebrate Kobelco’s 90th anniversary we have introduced a few items of special edition merchandise to share with you.
The collection includes:
• Kobelco 90th anniversary cap
• 90th anniversary lanyard
• Keyring of Kobelco’s first electric shovel machine
• 90th anniversary T-shirt
