Kobelco launches short radius excavator

By Leila Steed25 March 2021

Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe has launched its new – and largest – short radius excavator.

Kobelco SK380SRLC Kobelco’s Stage V SK380SRLC excavator is equipped with a turbocharged Hino diesel engine and is suitable for urban projects.

The SK380SRLC weighs over 36 t and its 6.2 m (20 ft 4 in) long boom has a maximum lifting capacity of 12.4 t (12.3kg) at a ground level.

The Stage V compliant machine is equipped with a turbocharged Hino diesel engine that provides 200 kW of power and has a Power Boost mode, which provides 10% more power. 

The SK380SRLC’s powertrain delivers a drawbar force of 314 kN for smooth operation, making it suitable for both urban projects and for use on rough or sloping terrain.

Peter Stuijt, product manager at Kobelco, said: “The arrival of the SK380SRLC is a result of extensive market research and customer feedback, coupled with Kobelco’s extensive experience in innovative technologies.

“We’re seeing more demand for Short Radius machines, due to increased requirements for urban infrastructure and utilities, and the SK380SRLC offers all the benefits of a heavy machine, including high power and increased lifting capacity, but in a much smaller working footprint.”

Inside the cab, the short radius excavator features a colour LCD multi-display screen. Operators can use the device to access machine data such as fuel consumption, maintenance intervals, digging mode and other important information at-a-glance.

The display screen also gives operators up to ten pre-set attachment settings for a range of applications including breaking and other demolition tasks.
