The new G series crawler cranes from Kobelco make their European debut at INTERMAT
Kobelco used INTERMAT for the European introduction of its G series CKE range of crawler cranes –displaying the CKE2500G and the CKE800G, with lifting capacities of 250tonnes and 80tonnes respectively.
Both benefit from lower fuel consumption of up to 25% partly attributed to their Stage IIIB engines having an auto idle stop (which cuts the engine if it is idling and automatically re-starts it as soon as a control is touched) and the G Winch that retains its winching speed even if the engine revs are reduced from 2100 to 1750rpm.
Joysticks have become standard while levers remain an option, and the load monitoring and system control systems have been integrated into a single, bigger touch screen which doubles as a display for up to two CCTV cameras.
