The new Kobelco SK240SN-11 is ideal for working on narrow and mountainous roads

Following increased demand for heavy but narrow construction machines in Italy, Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe B.V. (KCME) is pleased to announce the launch of the SK240SN-11 excavator.

Like all new Kobelco -11 machines, the new model delivers superior performance, greater efficiency and productivity, but also benefits from a super-narrow undercarriage, which offers a number of additional advantages to operators in urban and mountainous regions.

The SK240SN-10 was first released in 2018 and has proven to be a popular and useful machine for operators in Italy, and the next-generation SK240SN-11 builds on this success.

The new machine has been designed with a transport width of 2,540mm and a shoe width of 550mm in order to meet Italy’s strict transportation regulations. Despite its narrower size, the new model is equipped with a powerful Stage-V compliant Hino engine to deliver 124kW output, 143kN digging force (157kN with Power Boost) and 227kN Drawbar Pulling Force, just like the equivalent SK210SNLC-11.

Smooth and steady operation while moving heavy objects across the jobsite is also assured through the ‘Independent Travel’ function, which dedicates one hydraulic pump to travel and one to the attachment on a continuous basis.
