Kobelco unveils new crawler crane series

Kobelco Cranes Co., Ltd. has introduced the S series of crawler cranes as an addition to the latest G-Series cranes. Production of the new models for world markets that have less demanding regulations or cannot support latest advanced engine technology. The new series does not meet requirements in Japan, Europe and North America and other parts of the world..

Comprising 10 models, the S series consists of crawler cranes from Kobelco’s popular CKS, BMS and 7000S series. The cranes, with lifting capacities ranging from 60 to 250 metric tons, have been newly designed, upgraded and improved from the customer’s point of view with safety, reliability and efficient operations in mind.

Features of the S series

In many respects the S Series are built to the same demands as the G-Series. The new models have been created from end-user feedback and real jobsite experiences, to make them easier to transport, erect and more operator friendly.

Kobelco adopted a totally new energy-saving assist system on all new models called the “G-Mode” system. G-Mode covers such assist systems as the Auto Idle Stop System, Energy Saving Winch Control System and Engine RPM Limitation System. The benefit of these is significant - up to 25% less fuel consumption from previous models:

  • Auto Idle Stop function
  • Energy saving winch function
  • Engine rpm limitation function

Compact design improves transportation of cranes

By newly designing the structure of the machine, transportability has been greatly improved. A minimum 2.99 meter width and 45 metric ton or less weight of the main body save additional work needed for transportation, such as arranging an escort car or special permission.

Operator support system & comfortable operator cabin

The new safety support device is an optional item. The counterweight amount detection device always tells the correct amount of the counterweight. The swing angle detection device prevents over-swinging. The ground level sensor prevents operations on uneven ground. Machine status is displayed on a new wide monitor in a newly designed operator cabin. The new luxurious cabin enhances comfortable operation.

For specific markets only

The S-Series models do not have the CE safety/emission features, and do not conform with CE regulations. They do however have the new G-Mode energy-saving systems, and the more usual long-handle control levers - joystick levers are not an option. In the crawler undercarriages, flat track shoes are standard - and the European option of tractor-type shoes on the 80 and 90 t models,

The S-Series is primarily aimed at markets in the Far East, Middle-East and Africa.
