Kobelco Brings SK210LC Excavator To Market

February 2014, Vol. 69 No. 2
Kobelco's SK210LC model

Onboard diagnostics come standard with the SK210 and were designed to be extremely intuitive. Kobelco engineers wrote the user-friendly code for the company’s Komex machine management system so that the operator could quickly gauge crucial machine data on a full color display right from the excavator’s cab. By monitoring machine data, operators are able to react appropriately when service is needed. No laptops are required in the field to translate complex warning codes or diagnose potential service issues, saving users valuable time.

When the workday is complete, owners can ensure their equipment is kept safe by enabling Kobelco’s geo-fence feature. Should their equipment be removed from the jobsite, they can track its location, and then lock it so that the next time it’s turned off, it can’t be turned back on, for safe returned to their site.

Electrical wiring is color coded for ease of tracking, with all wiring and hoses neatly tied and guarded to prevent wear. Long-life hydraulic oil boosts service life up to 5,000 hours, while a high capacity super-fine hydraulic oil filter increases the replacement cycle to 1,000 hours and allows for replacement of the filter element only, minimizing replacement costs. A standard, double-element air filter ensures the engine runs clean, even in the dustiest of environments. Despite its state-of-the-art design, the SK210, like all excavators, will require preventive maintenance. When the time comes, owners can easily and safely access critical service points from ground level, ensuring the machine continues to operate efficiently. 281.888.8430, Kobelco-USA.com.
