Kobelco Construction Machinery USA has launched a new line of demolition equipment for the North American market comprised of three models: the SK210D Multi-Dismantling Machine, the SK350DLC Scrap Handling Machine, and the SK1000DLC Large-Building Demo Machine.
The Kobelco SK210D Multi-Dismantling Machine is designed to take apart vehicle bodies, engines, and other metal components. Two specialized crushers allow for different dismantling tasks: 1) a multi-dismantling crusher is suited for small-scale separating and the sorting of all types of metal products, including small parts such as electrical fittings and harnesses; and 2) an optional vehicle-dismantling crusher offers a powerful grab, increased cutting force and rotational torque powerful enough to cut through a chassis and frame. The Kobelco Innovation Clamp Arm features a bowl-shaped grip and powerful cutting teeth with different shapes on the right and left sides to facilitate bending, breaking and tearing.
The Kobelco SK350DLC Scrap Handling Machine’s low center of gravity and dedicated counterweight are designed to provide dynamic stability. Its unique “bent boom” design makes dumping more efficient, according to the OEM. The 26.9-ft. angled boom is designed to fit within the sides of a trailer flatbed or the hatch coaming on a cargo container. The SK350DLC features a two-pin grapple designed to be more stable than a traditional one-pin design, eliminating shaking and reducing spillage of loads. An elevating cab can be raised to 8’6” in about 20 seconds, giving the operator a maximum eye-point height of 17.9’ and a clear view of operations.
The Kobelco SK1000DLC Large-Building Demolition Machine falls in the 220,000-lb. (100-ton) class and offers flexibility with four different attachments for job-specific strength and reach capabilities: 1) The GD Ultra Long Attachment puts the priority on reaching high places, extending up to 130’ with a 5,500-lb. (2.5 ton) class crusher; 2) the HD Ultra Long Attachment focuses on high-elevation crushing force with an 11,000-lb. (5-ton) class crusher and a reach of 100’; 3) the Separate + Insert Boom Attachment offers even more crushing force with a large crusher that carries 331,000 lbs. (150 tons) of tip crushing force and a reach of 65’; and 4) the Separate Boom Attachment is built for compact operation, with a powerful crusher, advanced workability in confined spaces, and superior lifting power near the ground. An optional removable trans-lifter and stacking-type counterweight assist with easier preparation for shipment, and a dedicated 30-degree tilting cab presents operators with a safe line of sight and comfortable working posture.
