The next generation of mid-size Kobelco SR Series machines, offers full-size benefits with short rear swing capabilities and exceptional features.
Several new performance enhancements allow the SK75SR-7 and SK85CS-7 to deliver greater efficiency and productivity, as well as increased power and speed compared to their predecessors.
With a dynamic digging force of 6,382 kg and a 37 per cent increase in digging speed, the SK75SR-7 and SK85CS-7 deliver continuous operation and reduce cycle times by about 15 per cent.
As well, a new Tier 4 Final engine increases power output by about 28 per cent and enables both machines to deliver advanced productivity and efficiency — even while working at high power levels, lifting heavy loads or travelling on steep grades.
The SK75SR-7 and SK85CS-7 feature a compact design and long digging reach to provide easy manoeuvrability and a broad working range.
Enhanced multi-function capabilities include an attachment selection system with adjustable flow-rate presets for the bucket, breaker, nibbler and thumb, which allows the operator to change between tools quickly and easily.
