Earlier this month at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in Las Vegas, Kobelco Construction Machinery USA had a 31,350-square-foot (2,912.5-square-meter) exhibit that featured more than 20 machines, including a number of specialty excavators. Many of those excavators made their public debut at the show, including the SK390LC-10, SK550DLC-10 Building Demolition excavator, the SK300L logging-oriented excavator, SK35SR Electric excavator, and its largest model yet in North America, the SK850LC-10.

The SK35SR Electric features a battery-powered hydraulic system and the SK390LC-10 has a “high and wide undercarriage and large boom cylinders for increased lifting power and stability,” according to Kobelco.

Multi-Faceted Exhibit

Kobelco also had several special exhibits running throughout the show, including a Kobelco Country exhibit complete with a saloon, general store, and mechanical bull-riding competition. Another exhibit showed Kobelco’s approach to manufacturing and aftersales support while also highlighting several technologies and innovations, including K-DIVE remote operation, KOMEXS machine monitoring, and the iNDr Cooling System. The company also delivered machines to customers at the show, including a special Wounded Warrior Project themed SK350LC-10.

“A Tremendous Success”

“CONEXPO 2020 was a tremendous success for Kobelco USA. Our exhibit was the perfect opportunity to show the market why Kobelco excavators are truly ‘Built Like No Other’ while also allowing us to connect with Kobelco dealers and current and future customers,” says Jack Fendrick, COO and vice president of Kobelco USA. “Attendees that visited Kobelco Country at CONEXPO were able to witness the exclusive innovations and industry-leading specs that make Kobelco machines mavericks – all while having a little fun. It was an unforgettable experience and we are thrilled with the positive outcome.”
