The SK260LC-11 KOBELCO excavator has an operating weight of 60,200 pounds, and is powered by a 194-horsepower diesel engine.

Maximum digging depth is 23 feet, maximum digging reach is 33 feet 10 inches, and maximum dumping clearance is 22 feet 7 inches.

The Yanmar engine delivers 194 horsepower and 577 lb.- ft. of torque at 1,500 rpm, which is a 23% increase in torque compared to the Dash 10 model.

The KOBELCO excavator has Independent Travel function dedicates one hydraulic pump to travel and one to the attachment on a continuous basis, which aids smooth and steady operation, according to the company.

The SK260LC-11 excavator has three work modes: Eco, S, and H mode for balancing between high performance, economy, and low fuel consumption. Heavy Lift and Power Boost (with unlimited time use) add the power needed for tough conditions, and the in-cab hydraulic pressure release function allows customers to change work tools or hoses easily and safely.

Many major components have been redesigned for improved durability and performance. The side panels are thicker to enhance body rigidity, and the increased diameter of the bucket cylinder pin contributes to enhanced durability for using various work tools.

Pre-installed mounting brackets allow for system installation of machine guidance systems from various suppliers of both 2D and 3D systems.

Standard features on the operator station include a 7-way adjustable heated air suspension seat that moves together with the armrests and hydraulic controls, pilot levers that move horizontally without arching of the wrist, and right-side jog dial that integrates multiple functions into a single user interface with the large 10-inch color monitor. The menu screen facilitates reading of important information including work mode, maintenance intervals, and fuel consumption, as well as providing a 270-degree view from the machine’s standard three camera system.

The hydraulic flow-rate modes of the bucket, breaker, nibbler, and rotating grapple are also now fully adjustable by the operator through the monitor, and the mode settings for other attachments, such as a tilt rotator, can also be easily added or changed. In addition, all internal switches and dials in the cabin have LED backlighting to provide a bright, clear view in the dark.

A standard radiator clean-out screen prevents larger material from clogging the radiator cooling fins and can be easily removed for cleaning. A newly structured hydraulic oil filter prevents foreign matter from entering the oil tank during maintenance, and all filters are easy to access from ground level.

KOMEXS (KOBELCO Monitoring Excavator System) allows managers to access remotely operational information such as hours, fuel consumption, and maintenance status. An engine start alarm, e-fence, and current/past location history are also included.
