Energy Saving System
  • Hydraulic Circuit with Reduced Energy Loss-The KOBELCO original hydraulic circuit analysis is used to construct the hydraulic system with extremely reduced energy loss which contains a piping design for minimal back pressure losses resistance and the minimum valve resistance.
  • ECO-Mode-The ECO - mode is newly provided in this machine. The control of the engine and hydraulic pressure in this mode makes a significant reduction in fuel consumption possible. Each mode for each work situation and circumstance can be selected easily from the menu.
  • Eco-Friendly Engine (No exhaust fluid required) - The HINO engine, (a subsidiary of Toyota) establishes a reputation for low fuel consumption and environmental performance. This machine adopts this engine and KOBELCO fine tunes the match between the engine and hydraulic systems for the optimum combination of efficiency, operability, and environmental conscientiousness.

  • Big Cab - The “Big Cab” provides a roomy operating space with plenty of legroom, and the door opens wide for entry and exit. As well as giving a wide, open view to the front, the cab has increased window areas on both sides and to the rear, for improved visibility in all directions.
  • Wide-Access Cab Helps Smooth Entry and Exit - Easy entry and exit assured with wider cab entry and safety lock lever integrated with mounting for control levers.
  • Excellent Visibility - Eliminating the right-side cab support to make a single window has improved visibility to the right.
  • Comfortable Operating Environment - The inside of the cab is fully equipped for operator comfort. For example, the seat has many adjustment points for operating the machine and also when relaxing in the cab. A larger storage space is provided. Operator comfort was the first priority in mind when designing the cab.
  • Color Multi-Display - The easy-to-read liquid crystal color multi-display, which has vivid colors and graphical indications, is provided within the new type console.

  • ROPS Cab - The newly developed, ROPS (Roll -Over-Protective Structure) - compliant cab clears ISO standards (ISO-12117-2: 2008) and ensures greater safety for the operator.
  • Rear View Camera -  A rear view camera is installed as standard equipment to simplify checking for rear view behind the machine. The brilliant color picture appears on the LCD monitor.
