Kobelco Construction Machinery gears up for SaMoTer 2023

Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe B.V. (KCME) is looking forward to showcasing its latest models to the Italian market for the first time at SaMoTer 2023. While details of the new SK34SR-7 and SK39SR-7 were released in February, the event in Verona, Italy on 3-7 May will be the first opportunity for KCME’s customers to see the new mini excavators up close.

Mini excavators are vital to Kobelco’s overall product line-up. The introduction of the SK34SR-7 and SK39SR-7 demonstrates how the Japanese manufacturer is continually developing its mini excavator technology and machine concepts in order to better meet the increasing demands of its operators. ‘Built for perfection’, these machines are extremely precise in operation and offer increased engine performance, an updated cabin interior and easier maintenance vs the previous SK30SR-6E and SK35SR-6E.

In addition to the SK34SR-7 and SK39SR-7, visitors to KCME’s 510m2 stand will be able to see the SK58SRX-7, the largest of Kobelco’s mini excavators, as well as the much smaller 1.7-tonne SK17SR-3E. Heavier, Short Radius (SR) excavators are also popular in Italy, particularly in the mountainous regions, so Kobelco will also showcase the mid-weight SK140SRLC-7 and the multipurpose ED160BR-7 Blade Runner. The unique ED160BR-7 combines dozer with SR-type excavator, enabling operators to excavate and dozer terrain with one machine. The next-generation SK130LC-11, the smallest of Kobelco’s conventional excavators, will also be showcased on the stand.

Since establishing its first official Italian dealer in 2016, Italy has grown to be a region of significant importance for KCME, and it now boasts an extensive network of authorised dealers that covers the mainland as well as the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. A full team, including team members from KCME’s head office in Almere as well as dealer support staff, will also be on hand to answer customer questions throughout the duration of the show.

SaMoTer is Italy’s leading construction exhibition. The event welcomes more than 450 exhibitors from the construction industry as well as more than 80,000 visitors from over 80 countries every three years. KCME exhibited at SaMoTer for the first time in 2017.
