Japanese manufacturer Kobelco has introduced its first ever mini-excavator equipped with iNDr (integrated Noise & Dust reduction) technology in Europe.

First seen on the recently introduced SR class of Kobelco construction machines, this new method of dust filtration, combined with engine cooling technology, leads to a cleaner and quieter working environment, which Kobelco says makes the unit ideal for urban work.

Kobelco has equipped the SK55SRX with a new dozer blade design to minimise over-spill during levelling operations, which reduces work time and fuel.

The Kobelco SK55SRX mini-excavator comes with a compact short-tail swing and a maximum tail overhang of just 190mm.

The latest specification Yanmar 2.2 litre diesel engine powers the new mini-excavator range, making it fuel efficient, even when delivering maximum levels of power and torque (28.3 kW/131 Nm). A 23% further fuel saving (over previous model in class) can be obtained with the machine in energy saving ‘S-mode’.
