With an operating weight of 12,295 pounds, the 55SRx compact excavator is said to deliver the productivity of a larger machine while working in a footprint close to zero-tail-swing models. It includes some of the same features found on larger Kobelco machines such as high-performance hydraulics, operator environment, and structural components. Rated at 39 horsepower, the unit features a large boom and arm for a wider operating range. It delivers 11,240 lbf. of bucket digging force and a dig depth of 12 feet 10 inches. With its compact size and a cab height of 8 feet 4 inches, the 55SRx is easy to transport between jobsites. The compact excavator is equipped with a standard two-way backfill dozer blade featuring a 38-degree approach angle for finish grading. An optional four-way dozer blade is available for increased backfill and grading ability.
