Kobelco’s highly anticipated Hybrid arrives in Europe
The all-new SK210HLC-10 is the world’s first lithium-ion battery powered hybrid excavator.
Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe B.V. (KCME) is pleased to announce the arrival of the all-new Kobelco SK210HLC-10 – the first true hybrid specialist excavator in the 20-tonne operating class with Stage 4 (Tier IV) compliance.
“We are very pleased to finally launch the SK210HLC-10 after many years of innovation and development. Kobelco’s original Hybrid technology has improved significantly since we first displayed our Hybrid prototype at Intermat 2006 in Paris, our latest machine is working proof that Kobelco is a leading authority in hybrid excavator development.”
“The SK210HLC-10 has one of the most technologically advanced systems of all hybrid excavators currently in the European market. Not only is it remarkable for being a hybrid in the competitive 20-tonne class but also for its exceptional ability to increase productivity levels while reducing operator costs. Reduced fuel consumption is a key feature of the SK210HLC-10, but to do so with improved working efficiency and performance is even more spectacular.”
Kobelco Product Marketing Manager, Peter Stuijt
Technical excellence and experience have enabled Kobelco to deliver the very latest in hybrid technology to one of the most demanding working-weight classes. At the heart of the SK210HLC-10 are two major power-drive units. The use of a large lithium-ion battery – an operating class world-first – allows a greater retention of stored electricity, which provides the necessary electrical output to a new Kobelco-developed 25 kW power-assist generator motor. Secondly, the efficient Stage 4 (Tier IV) Hino Motors turbocharged diesel engine – the same engine that powers the conventional SK210LC-10.
