Model SK485 Mark 9 is the largest in the series. Tier 4-Interim engine delivers 345 horsepower and 15 percent better fuel efficiency with CEGR technology. The unit has been upgraded with the company’s Intelligent Total Control hydraulics, including integrated swing priority that provides seamless and smooth transition of additional pump power to the swing function, the company says. A new control monitor provides key operating data and a rear camera view to expand the operator’s view to the back of the machine. The unit has three working modes: H Mode, for heavy-duty excavation and loading work; S Mode, for standard digging and loading work; and E Mode, for economy. Two attachment modes include B Mode, breaker/hammer optimized (1-way hydraulic flow); and A Mode, for auxiliary attachment work such as demolition with a crusher/nibbler breaker or shear (2-way/2-pump flow).
