Following the launch of the all-new Kobelco SK75SR-7 and SK85MSR-7 at BAUMA in April, our customers have already been putting the machines to work on jobsites all across Europe. From simple construction projects and road building to agriculture and housebuilding, these versatile next-generation midi excavators have been demonstrating their superior performance, greater efficiency and productivity, reinforcing their position as leaders in the mid-range category.
Demonstrating their early popularity across central Europe, a number of SK75SR-7 and SK85MSR-7 excavators have already been sold to customers in Scandinavia, UK, Benelux, France, Austria and Germany. Early feedback from these customers indicates that the improved productivity, new-look cabin interior and latest technological features were the main reasons for choosing the new machines for their fleet.
The SK75SR-7 and SK85MSR-7 were launched in 2019 as a result of increasing demand for mid-sized excavators in Europe. Several years of research and development, including consultation with our European dealers and customers on the previous SK75SR-3 and SK85MSR-3, provided us with valuable insight, enabling us to make significant improvements to the new models. Some of these key improvements include:
In addition, the SK75SR-7 and SK85MSR-7 benefit from short radius designs, making them ideal for working on jobsites where space is limited, such as in residential areas. The inclusion of Kobelco’s innovative iNDr (Integrated Noise and Dust Reduction Cooling System) Stage V emissions compliance also reinforces the machines’ urban working credentials.
Offering one of the most sophisticated operator cabins in class, particular care and attention has been given to ensure the SK75SR-7 and SK85MSR-7 provide the ultimate in comfort and safety. As well as a new larger size cabin, a Kobelco-branded Grammer heated air suspension seat is installed as standard for excellent shock absorption and superior operator comfort, and the armrests and joystick moves with the seat for optimum working position.
Other key features of the ROPS and FOPS II-compliant cabin include:
The SK75SR-7 is available with fixed monoboom and offset boom configurations. The SK85MSR-7 is available with swing monoboom and can also be fitted with a two-piece boom. This special two-piece configuration enables operators to work across a wide operating range while still providing smooth hydraulic operation, high performance and increased fuel efficiency, and gives more digging space within the same area.
But don’t just take our word for it… Our myKOBELCO testimonials are based on customers’ own experiences of using the machines and explain the benefits the machines have brought to their business or project.
“The Kobelco brand is renowned for its reliability, innovative thinking and commitment to operator comfort and the new SK75SR-7 doesn’t disappoint. It is simply amazing!” Herman Wold, Vestby Kommune
“We have two other Kobelco excavators and are very happy with the quality of the brand. We only took delivery of the SK75SR-7 in June, but so far we are very satisfied.” Vidar Solberg, Skoppum Grunnarbeid
