New Kobelco SK135SR-7 delivers exceptional performance and operator experience through harmonisation of power and design.

Kobelco Construction Machinery Australia (KCMA) is pleased to announce the arrival of the SK135SR-7 – a 15 tonne short radius excavator that delivers enhanced performance and productivity through harmonisation of mechanical power, operating speed and overall machine design.

The SK135SR-7 is the latest in a new generation of excavators to demonstrate Kobelco’s prowess in excavator design and manufacture. Coupled with modern manufacturing processes and customer feedback, the Japanese manufacturer’s SK135SR-7 sets a new class-defining standard in operational performance and operator comfort. Together with Kobelco’s well-earned reputation as a leader in fuel efficiency and reliability, the SK135SR-7 is set to be a game changer in its class.

The latest in a long line of powerful and efficient 15 tonne excavators, the Kobelco SK135SR-7 takes power and efficiency even further. The Isuzu 3.0L turbocharged diesel engine meets global emissions standards, while at the same time gaining a significant 10% increase in engine output (compared to SK135SR-5). The performance increase ensures no loss of power on gradients and with heavy bucket loads and delivers a powerful tractive effort of 141kN. Complete with a new hydraulic control system, digging cycle time has been reduced by 10%, compared with the previous model.

The spacious sealed and pressurised cabin of the SK135SR-7 is an arena of ultra-modern, easily accessible operating controls and components – with finish and function comparable to that of premium European cars. The layout is designed to deliver a new experience in excavator operation, starting with a 10-inch colour monitor – the largest in-cab visual information screen within the excavator industry.

The easy access 10-inch colour monitor provides the operator with a clear view of important machine status information, function menus and the all-important views from three cameras that are supplied as standard equipment. As well as rear and right side images, images from a third camera (positioned on the left side) combine to create a unique “eagle-eye” view, allowing full 270 degree machine perimeter visibility.

Monitor functions are controlled by a modern multifunction jog-type dial that allows control even with gloved hands, and is also LED backlit for ease of operation.

Installed in the new SK135SR-7 is a heated and air-cushioned suspension seat that is Kobelco-branded and built by Grammer, constructed to incorporate the joystick and armrests as one unit, so any movement of the seat means the operator remains comfortable and in full control. The seat and console units of this superior seating system are designed so that the available range of adjustment provides the ideal posture position for any operator, to give all-day comfort, therefore boosting work efficiency.

Kobelco’s Integrated Noise and Dust Reduction System (iNDr) provides the SK135SR-7 with ultra-low onsite noise operation – a necessary requirement when working in populated urban areas, or in close proximity of onsite workforce.
