Rock-ripping toughness and outstanding fuel efficiency made the Kobelco
50 tonne SK500LC-9 the ideal machine for Sydney company Megex Civil to add to its fleet.
Megex Civil operates a fleet of 30 machines, and managing director Warren Megarry says that he was looking for something better than the market average for heavy excavators when he chose the Kobelco.
‘We’ve had the Kobelco SK500LC-9 for a couple of months now and we’re impressed by how well it can rip through rock. Kobelco excavators have a good reputation so I was happy when we bought it, but I’m even happier now that I’ve seen it in action,’ Warren says.
Megex Civil specialises in major industrial warehousing and is based in Western Sydney. Warren says Megex Civil will have a lot of ongoing work for the next five years, so it was important that the new excavator would be strong and reliable.
‘Brands I had traditionally bought were either pricing themselves out of the market, or were so heavy on fuel that I knew in this day and age there must be a better option,’ Warren says.
