The SK260LC Acera Mark 8 hydraulic excavator, weighing 57,300 pounds, uses a six-cylinder, 181-horsepower Iveco diesel engine (Tier-3-compliant,) and digs to 23 feet. The SK260LC, says Kobelco, uses the company’s Intelligent Total Control System, which recognizes the operator’s moves and provides appropriate hydraulic response. The machine’s auto-acceleration system increases engine speed and hydraulic flow in proportion to the operator’s movement of the control levers. Four power modes include those for heavy digging, standard digging/fuel conservation, breaker use (one-way flow) and crusher use (two-way flow).
