Civil engineering firm Pipeline Technics was pleasantly surprised with the fuel efficiency of the Kobelco 35 tonne SK350LC-10 excavator when they used it alongside several other branded excavators on a major work site recently.
“We haven’t found any other brand of excavator in the 35 tonne market segment that is as fuel efficient as the Kobelco SK350LC-10. We were blown away by the figures when comparing it to another brand, and found the Kobelco can save us up to $1,400 per month,” said Pipeline Technics owner Gay Collins.
“The real highlight of the Kobelco 35 tonne is its fuel efficiency. We had another brand of 35T excavator working alongside the Kobelco machine and it was burning 28 litres of fuel per hour while the Kobelco was using just 18 litres per hour,” Dan from Pipeline Technics said.
