The SK230SRLC-5 acts like a conventional machine, but works in tight spaces only a short rear swing excavator can. Like all KOBELCO SR Series models, this unit is built with our exclusive iNDr Cooling System that reduces dust while delivering ultra-quiet operation, as well as multiple mode settings that allow you to dial in the perfect balance of performance and fuel economy. Plus, premier operator comforts mean it’s easier to stay focused on the task at hand.
