Kobelco SK130LC-11 excavator

The KOBELCO SK130LC-11 features a new 10-inch color monitor with a split-screen display function to customize operator viewing needs.

The Kobelco SK130LC-11 maximizes job productivity with nimble movement and digging power. This revolutionary model delivers a dynamic digging force of 24,818 pounds to achieve leading-class work volume while minimizing fuel consumption.

The SK130LC-11 is equipped with independent travel, a Kobelco model exclusive feature that allows the machine to move, lift and swing simultaneously without experiencing loss of power. The automatic swing priority instantly delivers full swing power during combined operations without switching modes.

A 96-horsepower Tier IV Final engine enables the SK130LC-11 to maintain superior productivity and efficiency while working at high power levels, lifting heavy loads, and traveling on steep grades. This engine incorporates a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system with diesel particulate filters (DPF), significantly decreasing NOx emissions and providing the lowest possible operation costs. A double-element air cleaner keeps the engines running clean, even in industrial environments, while a pre-filter with a built-in water-separator maximizes filtering performance to ensure stable operation.

The SK130LC-11 is equipped with enhanced multifunction capabilities, including an attachment selection system with adjustable flow-rate presets for the bucket, breaker, nibbler and thumb. This attachment selection system allows the operator to change tools quickly and easily. Mode settings for other attachments, such as a tilt rotator, can be easily added or changed.

The SK130LC-11 offers comfort, intuitive operation and comprehensive safety with standard ergonomic lever and Grammer air ride suspension seat to reduce operating force and fatigue. It’s offered with various cab features, including an optimized control layout with a new jog dial and 10-inch color monitor. An unfastened seatbelt indicator, and built-in rear, left and right-side cameras with a customizable split-screen display function enhance operator awareness and jobsite safety.

Maintenance on the SK130LC-11 is easy and cost efficient. Remote diagnostic and preventive maintenance systems utilize the latest IT innovations to improve operating product lifecycle costs. Easy access to maintenance data from the operation management system greatly improves ease of maintenance scheduling and ensures a long service life. Operators can expect extended service intervals when it comes to engine oil, hydraulic oil, filter changes and greasing.

Kobelco Construction Machinery USA offers industry-leading crawler excavators in the 3,000- to 185,000-pound classes including zero tail swing, compact, standard, long reach, high and wide undercarriages, mass excavation, auto recycling and demolition models.
