It only makes sense that the company that invented SR (short rear swing) excavators would stay ahead of the competition. The exclusive iNDr Cooling System reduces dust while delivering ultra-quiet operation, and multiple mode settings allow you to dial in the perfect balance of performance and fuel economy.

The SK270SRLC-7 is among the first KOBELCO units to feature our reconfigured iNDr Cooling System with two offset ducts on top that maintain quiet and cool operation - even with an enlarged engine compartment to meet Tier IV Final standards. The result is a powerful machine with reduced fuel consumption and minimal exhaust emissions.

With a minimal swing radius, power boost capability, independent travel, designated ECO-mode and other KOBELCO exclusive features, this machine is one of the most versatile job site tools out there.
