By Kobelco USA
April 18, 2017 - Kobelco has introduced the SK260 and SK300 High & Wide (H&W) models in North America. Designed specifically for forestry applications, these new excavators boast generous ground clearance and increased crawler width for ultimate performance on rough or hilly terrain. The Kobelco SK260 and SK300 H&W excavators are the perfect match for the harshest environments. Travel is smooth and unhindered on forestry sites strewn with stumps and rocks thanks to an increased ground clearance of 2’7” on both models, as well as double grouser shoes for better grip. The extra crawler width of 11’8” on the SK260 H&W and 12’ on the SK300 H&W allows for dependable stability and improved lifting capacity. Built with Tier IV Final HINO engines and highly efficient hydraulic systems, Kobelco’s SK260 and SK300 H&W excavators minimize fuel consumption and maximize power.
