Combining the features of two earthmoving machines into one, the Kobelco ED150 Blade Runner functions as both a bulldozer and excavator. The ED150 is the second such machine from the company and has an operating weight of 35,720 pounds. As an excavator the ED150 offers a 9-foot-8-inch arm with a digging depth of 19 feet 2 inches and a digging reach of 28 feet 9 inches. As a bulldozer it sports a six-way, a power-angle-tilt blade with a 2.86-cubic-yard capacity and a drawbar pull measuring 32,600 pounds. A single lever and an independent hydraulic pump control dozer functions.
It’s an excavator, it’s a dozer, it’s both!
