Kobelco Construction Machinery USA, a global leader in the manufacture of crawler excavators, recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony at their new Houston, TX-based North American headquarters following the relaunch of the brand as an independent product line earlier this year.
Kobelco Construction Machinery America has introduced the SK210 full-size, high-performance excavator to the Kobelco Mark 9 excavator series. These new Tier 4 models include the SK260, SK295, SK350 and SK485 excavators. The versatile SK210 Mark 9 delivers a 10 percent improvement in both fuel efficiency and productivity, with more power and faster engine response.
