The enhanced Kobelco SK140SRLC-7 delivers unmatched power and performance capabilities.

Equipped with a new Tier IV Final engine that increases power output by  almost 10 percent, the SK140SRLC-7 maintains superior productivity and efficiency, even while working at high power levels or lifting heavy loads. Its strong drawbar pulling force produces powerful travel capabilities, enabling it to tackle steep and rough terrain with ease. Its independent travel, an exclusive Kobelco feature, allows the SK140SRLC-7 to move, lift and swing simultaneously without loss of power.

Enhanced multi-function capabilities include an attachment selection system with adjustable flow-rate presets for the bucket, breaker, nibbler and thumb, allowing the operator to change between tools quickly and easily.

The SK140SRLC-7 is also available with an optional offset boom which increases stability and maneuverability while working in confined areas, such as next to walls or close to traffic.

When it comes to comfort, the SK140SRLC-7 offers intuitive operation and comprehensive safety. This Kobelco machine comes standard with an ergonomic lever and Grammer air-ride suspension seat to reduce operating force and fatigue. The SK140SRLC-7 cab also features 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 SK140SRLC-7 is easy and cost efficient. Remote diagnostic and preventive maintenance systems use 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.
