SK400DLC-10E

SK400DLC-10E demolition machine launched to European market

The versatile SK400DLC-10E features Kobelco’s proven NEXT system for both high elevation and foundation demolition work, provides a safe and quick solution for the assembly/disassembly of attachments and maintenance and enables easy transportation between projects, for significant cost savings.

Kobelco chose the BAUMA 2016 to showcase its NEXT Series SK400DLC-9 to the European market for the first time. Feedback obtained from dealers, customers and operators over the next 12 months combined with an increasing demand for demolition and heavy machinery, led to the further improvement and development of the machine before its official launch.

The Kobelco SK400DLC-10E is based on the highly acclaimed SK350LC-10, sharing the same turbo-charged Stage IV-compliant engine and hydraulic system for high performance and low fuel consumption. However, utilisation of the Kobelco-developed NEXT system means that the machine can also be adapted for multiple applications on the job site, including high elevation demolition projects as well as breaking up foundations.

The NEXT ultra-high attachment is best suited to the demolition of multi-storey buildings from ground level. The SK400DLC-10E has four ultra-long attachment configurations and can work to a maximum height of approximately 24.7m. The separate boom configuration is ideal for tackling the lower floors of tall buildings where the concrete is at its thickest. The maximum working depth of the SK400DLC-10E is 6,210mm.

Another important benefit of the NEXT system is the low storage height of the ultra-high attachment when collapsed. This attachment is designed with the jib and arm cylinders crossed over the shorter inter arm, while the back of the arm remains flat. As a result, the height of the attachment in its stored position is approximately 2m, which means that it can be transported between projects on a standard trailer, saving significant logistical costs.

Other factors contributing to easy transportation include a hydraulic extension/retraction mechanism, which can reduce the width of the crawlers to approx. 3m in compliance with some strict European transport regulations, and the two-part counterweight, which can be separated more easily than an integrated counterweight.

Three work modes are also available to further aid fuel efficiency. H-mode is used for heavy working, S-mode for balancing work volume with fuel consumption, and Eco-mode for prioritising fuel efficiency over work volume. Fuel consumption can be monitored and work modes can be changed via the colour multi-display in the cabin.

Demolition job sites provide challenging conditions for the operator, so Kobelco has worked hard to develop the SK400DLC-10E with increased comfort and safety in mind. The demolition-specification cabin, which is compliant with level II FOPS and fitted with high strength security glass and radial grid guards across the front and top windows, can tilt up to 30-degrees so that the operator can maintain a comfortable posture during high elevation demolition work. This important feature was developed following feedback from the European dealer network, and is available as standard on all SK400DLC-10E machines.

Other important safety features on these new models include the new cab interference prevention system, which sounds an alarm and prevents the machine from allowing the working tool to come into contact with the cab during operation. In addition, the working radius and stability of the machines are calculated from the position of the attachment and the operator is warned with an alarm when stability is compromised via the stability warning system.

The SK400DLC-10E is also equipped with rear view and right side cameras, a loudspeaker system, falling object deflector and bright, long-life LED lights for increased visibility on site.
