The Kobelco SK55SRX-6 is a 5 tonne excavator with excellent capabilities and high power, all whilst maintaining compact dimensions.
As well as key features such as: Double acting hammer circuit, check valves and being pre-piped for hydraulic quick hitches, the following make this model a popular choice for hire fleets and owner operators alike.
The iNDr (Integrated Noise & Dust Reduction Cooling System) on the SK55SRX-6 features air intake at the front of the machine and an exhaust system underneath. This combined with the highly airtight engine compartment and offset duct contribute to an overall noise reduction.
Because the iNDr filter removes dust from the air intake, cooling components stay dirt free and do not require regular cleaning. The filter itself is very easy to removed and cleaned without the need for tools.
As mentioned this machine packs a serious punch for an excavator in this class. An arm length just shy of 2 metres gives excellent dig depths, dump height and reaching capabilities. Yet the overall machine height, width and undercarriage length remains lower than it's nearest competitors. As with all Kobelco excavators stability remains extremely high in the SK55.
Large, Comfortable Cab
The newly designed, rectangular cab is over 820 mm wide, with optimised control layout for comfortable, easy operation. A greater window area further improves visibility. A clear view is provided at the rear, and there’s also more floor space, with a fabric, suspension seat that slides further to ensure plenty of leg room. A radio and air conditioning are also fitted as standard.
Strength is added to the SK55SRX-6 by the use of high quality components. The boom, arm and swing bracket all have large cross-section segments for added attachment strength. Whilst hosing is all sensibly routed inside the swing bracket for example.
All of our Kobelco excavators have the build quality and finish you would expect from a highly regarded Japanese manufacturer.
Integrated-Flow Pump System
The instant the machine begins to dig, extra output from the third pump (which otherwise powers the swing and dozer circuit) is directed to the arm circuit and boom circuit for added power. This ensures fast and smooth arm and boom raising operation even under heavy loads.
This model is fitted with a deceleration switch to turn to an idling state when the machine is at rest. It is also fitted with Kobelco's 'S-Mode' which enables 23% less fuel consumption compared to other models.
A large and powerful Yanmar engine provides 29.5 kW of power, which gives the machine the required force for outstanding hydraulic and digging performance. These engines are also very reliable and parts, such as filters are already on the shelves at Molson Compact.
We currently have Kobelco SK55SRX-6 models in stock at Molson Compact Equipment.
