Machinery Insights: The Kobelco SK35SR-6 Mini Excavator

The KOBELCO SK35SR-6 mini excavator has been quite popular with GCC construction sites. This is because of its highly enduring engine cooling system, operator comfort working longer hours, and overall easily serviced components. In this article, we’ll talk about the features that make this mini excavator a standout performer on the job site.

Silent Power with iNDr Cooling System

One of the key features that set the KOBELCO SK35SR-6 apart is its advanced iNDr cooling system, which stands for Integrated Noise & Dust Reduction. This innovative technology creates an airtight engine compartment with offset ducts that work together to reduce noise. The iNDr filter, located in front of the cooling system, ensures easy cleaning and efficient dust removal. Dust particles are no match for the 30-mesh wave-type screen of the stainless-steel filter.

But the real magic happens when the iNDr system gets to work. With air intake at the front and air exhaust underneath, it guarantees remarkably quiet operation at only 75 dB. This means that operators can work comfortably without the constant roar of the engine, enhancing their focus and productivity.

Powerful Performance with Fuel Efficiency

The SK35SR-6 is equipped with a Yanmar 3TNV82A-B diesel engine, delivering 18.10 kW of power at 2,400 rpm. It also features an "S" operating mode that significantly reduces fuel consumption by up to 25% compared to previous models. This means not only more power but also more cost-effective operation.

Maneuverability in Compact Spaces

One of the standout features of this mini excavator is its short tail swing, which enhances operating efficiency in tight spaces. Its compact size, with a height of only 2.5 meters and a length of 4.8 meters with the boom down, makes it easy to transport to various job sites. Whether you're working in urban environments or confined spaces, the SK35SR-6 has you covered.
