What's New In Plant & Equipment

Kobelco SK300LC-10 Excavator

  As part of the Kobelco Generation 10, the SK300LC delivers value, productivity and durability. Powered by a 252-hp Tier IV Final HINO engine, enables it to easily tackle heavy-duty applications and is one of the most powerful and fuel efficient excavators in its class.

The SK300LC-10 is designed to provide exceptional low emissions and increased working performance to maintain unparalleled working efficiency, and is the latest Kobelco conventional excavator to comply with Stage 4 exhaust emissions regulations.

This engine is the same unit that powers Kobelco machinery from the higher 35-ton operating class and, therefore, its powerful 186 kW output makes the SK300LC-10 a top performer in its class.

Reinforcing the performance aspect is the superb bucket digging force of 209 kN as well as drawbar pull and swing torque figures that are among the highest in class.

Min. dumping clearance 1,660 mm
Max. vertical wall digging depth 7,000 mm
Min. swing radius 4,550 mm
Bucket capacity ISO heaped 0.8 m³

Fuel efficiency through refinement is an important aspect in all Kobelco designs in order to save operating costs. The refinement of trusted power-plants has led to a decrease in fuel consumption in Eco-mode/S-mode and maximising fuel efficiency in H-mode.

Serviceability and operator refinement on the SK300LC-10 is enhanced. The latest upper deck/cabin profile mirrors the proven SK350LC-10 and provides easy access to the engine compartment for daily operator checks and scheduled servicing needs.

At the same time the deck/cabin layout provides the operator with wide visibility to the right side. The cabin itself is spacious and accommodating with the usual Kobelco-user refinements.

Ease of transportation was also a key factor during the design process of the SK300LC-10. Although this machine has all the benefits of a 35-ton category engine, including cabin and upper frame (excluding the counterweight), the lower carriage is designed for the 30-ton category.


The SK300LC’s new travel motor increases traction force by 10%, enabling it to deliver a drawbar pulling force more powerful than competitive models – without sacrificing travel speed.

This video of the Kobelco 10 Series excavator from Kobelco Australia shows the features common across the range of models.
