KOBELCO continues innovation


Reduction of the impact on the environment is a common practice in the recent construction machinery industry.
In 2006, KOBELCO released the first hybrid excavator SK70H with fuel efficiency improved by 40% compared to the conventional machines in the same class. In 2009, sales of the hybrid “SK80H“ started. In 2012, the 20-ton class SK200H-9 was released, which established Kobelco as “the leading company in fuel efficiency”.
Now the SK210HLC-10 is showing its true value of “genuine hybrid” and breaking the common sense of conventional hybrid machines.

KOMEXS provides access to important machine data, which helps them to manage their machines more efficiently, increase machine productivity and reduce their costs.
