Kobelco will be promoting two demolition machines that are currently available on the European market: SK400D-LC and SK550D-LC. The key feature of the Kobelco demolition machine is the exclusive NEXT joint system, designed for quick assembly and ease of transport. The machines can be quickly set up and adapted to meet the job requirements and to be used for the full duration of the job. Due to the unique structure of the attachment, transportation is completely safe and with just a few steps. Enhanced safety functions like cab interference prevention system, stability warning system, tilting cab and system of cameras to mention just a few, together with the outstanding fuel consumption, make this machine very desirable equipment on the demolition market. NEXT ATTACHMENT The new-generation NEXT demolition attachment for the demolition machine with common use type base boom was designed by Kobelco without being limited by existing concepts. Each boom attachment has a block structure that simplifies assembly and transport, and the attachments employ our original NEXT joint system. The piping can be connected at ground level, and the steps for attachment assembly/disassembly from pressure release to pin fixing can be completed safely in a short time. Kobelco helps provide the owner reduced operational costs, less downtime and greater return on investment.

Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe B.V. (KCME) is pleased to announce its attendance at the forthcoming GaLaBau international trade fair at Nuremberg on 12-15 September. Germany is one of the important markets for Kobelco with huge potential for growth, particularly in the mini and midi excavator sector, so the manufacturer will be using the event as a strategic platform to showcase its latest models. As a leading excavator specialist, Kobelco is committed to manufacturing the best machines it can and mini excavators are key to its overall product line-up. Over the past 3 years, the Japanese manufacturer has significantly invested in developing and improving this popular smaller weight category and currently offers a wide range of models from small 1-ton and short radius machines for compact job sites, to larger models up to 8.5-tons. This continual investment and development means that many of the technologies from the larger-capacity models can now be found in Kobelco’s mini excavators. For example, the manufacturer’s innovative iNDr (Integrated Noise & Dust Reduction cooling system) technology was initially introduced for the larger short radius machines, but has now been integrated in a number of mini excavators from the SK28SR-6 and upwards. This means that customers of the smaller-capacity machines can also benefit from the same outstanding reliability and low noise operation, which is ideal for working in urban areas. KCME looks forward to presenting the SK28SR-6, SK30SR-6, SK35SR-6, SK45SRX-6 and SK55SRX-6 models along with the smallest SK10SR-2 and SK17SR-3 models at GaLaBau. In addition, Germany’s midi-excavator sector has shown a slight growth in the past 12 months and Kobelco has a number of excellent solutions to meet the demands of this segment. The SK75SR-3 and SK85MSR-3 are renowned as ‘light heavy excavators’ because their designs incorporate existing Kobelco heavy machinery technology. As well as featuring iNDr, SK75SR-3 and SK85MSR-3 can also be equipped with different attachments in addition to their standard mono booms. Both machines also deliver outstanding operator controllability thanks to hydraulic system technology as used in larger capacity Kobelco excavators. Another benefit of utilising existing heavy machinery design within the midi-excavator class is the increased size of the operator cabins, which deliver a large working area and, therefore, greater comfort in all working environments. Visitors to GaLaBau will see the SK75SR-3 fitted with the Side Drain attachment and mounted Rototilt R3 and bucket, which offers the operator more flexibility across many different applications. The SK85MSR-3 will be fitted with the two-piece boom, which enables the operator to adjust the boom according to their required reach and lifting capacities and work in much smaller areas. This particular machine will also be installed with a mounted hydraulic quick coupler OQ45 from OilQuick, MTS vibratory plate and the iDig 2D machine control system. Commenting on Kobelco’s attendance at this year’s GaLaBau exhibition, KCME German Business Manager, Hanns Renz said: “We’re delighted to be attending GaLaBau this year – Germany and the surrounding nations are important markets for us. In fact, we are currently expanding our coverage in Germany and have just appointed a new authorised dealer, including Rossow Machinery, which will help service our customers in Rheinland-Pfalz, west of river Rhine and Saarland. “Mini excavators are important to Kobelco’s overall proposition and we have a wide range of machines covering a variety of applications. Experience in the German market tells us that our mini and midi excavators are often the first taste our customers have with the Kobelco brand before they consider purchasing heavier machines, so it is important that these smaller models are highly competitive. We’re very proud of what we’ve achieved with our mini and midi-excavator line-up and are looking forward to talking to GaLaBau’s many visitors about the benefits of using Kobelco machinery.” GaLaBau is one of the world’s leading exhibitions for designers, manufacturers and suppliers from the landscape gardening sector. Since its establishment in 1965, the event now regularly attracts around 1,300 exhibitors and 65,000 visitors over the four days, making it the ideal place to find out more about the latest innovations, developments and future trends from across the industry.
Over the past three years, the Spanish and Portuguese construction industries have seen significant growth, mainly driven by residential and commercial construction, and the appointment of Maquinaria J Aurteneche, Malcop s.l and Aldimak (in Spain) and Fuelmac, Lda (in Portugal) demonstrates KCME’s commitment to service its customers in these regions. Maquinaria J Aurteneche was appointed as an official Kobelco partner in January and is KCME’s first Spanish dealer. Established in 1945 in the north of the country, the family-run company specialises in the sale of construction, excavation and forestry machinery, offers machine rental and is well-equipped for aftersales servicing and providing spare parts support. So far, the new dealer has taken delivery of a number of mid-range and large Kobelco models. Maquinaria J Aurteneche’s General Manager, Jesús María Aurteneche Antía, said: “We were keen to join the Kobelco brand because of its proven experience in the construction sector, extensive sales network and excellent technical service.” Appointed in February, Malcop s.l covers a number of central and eastern areas of Spain, including Madrid, Toledo, Valencia and Alicante. The company, which was founded by brothers, Antonio and Pablo Ruíz, has been in operation for more than 27 years, specialises in groundworks, excavation, demolition and recycling and offers customers a number of additional support services including specialist technical assistance and a mobile workshop. Malcop s.l offers its customers the full range of Kobelco machinery. Antonio Ruiz said: “We’re very happy to start working with Kobelco as it is a brand renowned for its excellent quality, extensive range and business support. Kobelco has a fantastic reputation in the construction sector.” Aldimak joined the Kobelco brand in June and will service KCME’s customers in the Catalonia and Andorra regions. While the dealer has always specialised in the sale of earthmoving equipment, it has recently expanded its portfolio to include forestry machinery and also has some experience in the recycling and demolition sectors. Aldimak is dedicated to aftersales servicing and even has its own global maintenance programme to help customers maintain their excavator fleets. The first Kobelco machines are expected to arrive at the dealer by the end of August. Aldimak founder, Jaume Alberich, said: “We have been aware of the Kobelco brand for many years. Our customers had been impressed with the brand’s availability, reliability and performance, so we wanted to find out for ourselves. So far we have been impressed too!” Finally, Fuelmac, Lda was appointed as the official Kobelco dealer partner for Portugal in 2017. Based in Amarante, the family-run dealership is a subsidiary of a larger group of companies with more than 25 years’ experience in the construction industry. Fuelmac, Lda specialises in the sale of construction, demolition and forestry equipment as well as public works and offers its customers comprehensive servicing and aftersales solutions. Fuelmac, Lda’s founder, José Peixoto, said: “We believe that Kobelco is a high quality brand with high quality machines that boast exceptionally high performance. We’re looking forward to developing our long-term relationship.” KCME Managing Director, Makoto Kato added: “We’re proud to expand our European dealer network into Spain and Portugal for the first time with four new authorised dealers. The construction sector in these two regions is experiencing some positive growth and we’re delighted to welcome Maquinaria J Aurteneche, Malcop s.l, Aldimak and Fuelmac, Lda to the Kobelco brand. We’re really looking forward to working closely with these new partners and seeing our machinery working on job sites across Spain and Portugal very soon.” A full and easy to view list of the complete European Kobelco dealer network is available via our Dealer Locator
