Kobelco completes demolition line-up


Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe (KCME) has announced the introduction of its smallest machine to complete its line-up of vehicles for the demolition sector.

The SK350DLC-10 is the third demolition vehicle the company has released to the European market this year, with the SK400DLC-10 and SK550DLC-10 both being launched at the beginning of 2018.

Like its larger relatives, the new machine is intended to aid safe and quick assembly/disassembly of attachments and maintenance, while also being easily transportable.

Best suited to demolishing of multistory buildings from ground level, the new machine’s Next ultra-long attachment configuration enables it to work to a height of 21m and tool weight of 2.6 metric tons.

Easily transportable

The height of the attachment in its stored position is approximately 2m, meaning it can be transported on a standard trailer which minimizes logistics costs.

KCME product manager Peter Stuijt said, “Customer feedback on the Kobelco SK400DLC-10 and SK550DLC-10 following their introduction earlier this year has been very positive, but we found that there was also a demand for a smaller version.

“The SK350DLC-10 may be smaller, but there is no compromise on technology – the inclusion of the versatile Next system, which enables both high reach and basement demolition with the same machine, is testament to this.

“The SK350DLC-10 also benefits from an electronically controlled environmental engine, which promotes high power and low fuel consumption – particulate matter and NOx emissions are suppressed through the engine’s high combustion efficiency, exhaust gas aftertreatment equipment and urea SCR system.

“With this in mind, the SK350DLC-10 is an ideal compromise between economic investment and transport logistics. Equipped with a fixed undercarriage, it can serve a purpose in markets where the 3.2m transport regulation is not an issue.”
