KOBELCO shows off latest demolition excavators and car demolisher
Specialty machines debuted at year's largest equipment exposition
At CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017 this past March KOBELCO Construction Machinery says they hosted their dealer network members along with thousands of attendees at their exhibit, where they displayed the company’s latest advancements, exclusive technologies, several new and specialty excavator models and configurations, including the the SK1000DLC large building demolition machine, and debut of the SK210D-10 Car Demolition Machine and SK350DLC-10 Building Demolition excavator.
The KOBELCO SK210D Car Demolisher is designed to take apart vehicle bodies, engines, and other metal components with precise, safe, and efficient operation. The demo unit at CONEXPO 2017 was equipped with the KOBELCO Innovation Clamp Arm, which features a bowl-shaped grip and powerful cutting teeth, to enable efficient bending, breaking and tearing.
Two specialized crushers also allow the SK210D to tackle different dismantling tasks. The multi-dismantling crusher is suited for small-scale separating and sorting of various metal products, including small parts such as electrical fittings and harnesses. The optional vehicle-dismantling crusher offers a powerful grab, increased cutting force and rotational torque powerful enough to cut through a chassis and frame.
The KOBELCO SK210D offers a powerful and practical solution to nearly any demolition or dismantling task through the use of rugged design, a comfortable operator cab and controls, energy-efficient hydraulic system and Tier IV Final engine and hydraulic system.
The Tier IV Final KOBELCO SK350DLC Building Demolition excavator is engineered with practical features to increase jobsite productivity and reduce downtime.
A common-use main boom allows two attachments on the SK350DLC to be easily interchanged, including an ultra-long crusher attachment that enables the SK350DLC to demolish buildings up to seven stories high from the ground, and a 3-ton large front crusher that can be added to the ultra-long attachment for increased power and efficiency while demolishing high floors.
The SK350DLC also boasts the revolutionary KOBECLO NEXT joint system – each boom and attachment is designed with a block structure that simplifies assembly/disassembly for easy transportability.
The 220,000-pound KOBELCO SK1000DLC Large Building Demolition machine offers flexibility with a variety of attachments for job-specific strength and reach capabilities. The available GD ultra-long attachment puts the priority on reaching high places, extending up to 13 stories high with a 2.5-ton crusher, while the the HD ultra-long attachment focuses on high-elevation crushing force with a 5-ton crusher and a reach of 100-feet. Additionally, a separate + insert boom attachment offers even more power with a large crusher that carries 150-tons of tip crushing force and a reach of 65-ft. and a separate boom attachment is built for compact operation, with a powerful crusher, advanced workability in confined spaces and superior lifting power near the ground.
The SK1000DLC also features an optional removable trans-lifter and stacking-type counterweight to assist with easier preparation for shipment. And, a dedicated 30° tilting cab presents operators with a safe line of sight and comfortable working posture.

With an Acculoader automatic loading system, even smaller yards can take advantage of surging overseas demand for containerized scrap metal
Traditionally, recyclers across Canada have sent a huge percentage of their recovered scrap metal to Hamilton, Ontario, or Pennsylvania in the U.S., via open-top rail cars and truck trailers. The scrap is then melted down and turned into new steel. This is still the case for much of our scrap steel, but recently the growing trend toward containerization has introduced new opportunities for efficient, cost-effective shipping of both non-ferrous and ferrous materials to overseas markets.
