June 26, 2012

The new Tier 4 Kobelco Mark 9 excavator series, (SK210, SK260, SK295, SK350 and SK485 Mark 9 excavators) now includes the versatile SK170 Mark 9, which delivers up to a 10-percent improvement in both fuel efficiency and productivity, and provides more power and faster engine response. Featuring an upgrade to Kobelco’s  intelligent hydraulics, the SK170 Mark 9 is equipped with the industry’s first selective catalytic reduction (SCR) emission solution for excavators. A new ROPS/FOPS certified cab provides a larger, more comfortable work environment, and a low engine cover and standard wide-angle rear-view camera improve operator visibility and productivity. For improved system efficiency, the Kobelco SK170 Mark 9 also features a fully automatic engine and hydraulic warm-up system that warms the hydraulic circuit to an optimum 126° F (52° C). This feature helps make the operator more productive, more quickly, on the job.
