Kobelco Construction Machinery returns to SaMoTer 2020

The Japanese manufacturer is pleased to announce its attendance at the SaMoTer exhibition in Verona, Italy on 21-25 March


Italy is an important region for Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe N.V. (KCME) and since establishing its first official Italian dealer in 2016, the manufacturer has continued to expand across the country and now has a full network of ten dealers. With this in mind, KCME is keen to meet its new and loyal Italian customers and use SaMoTer as a platform to showcase its latest mini and midi excavators, as well as the Kobelco SK140SRLC-7, which will make its European debut at the event.

SaMoTer is Italy’s leading construction exhibition and 2020 marks its 31st anniversary. Taking place every three years, the event welcomes more than 450 exhibitors from the construction industry as well as more than 80,000 visitors from over 80 countries. KCME exhibited at SaMoTer for the first time in 2017, and is looking forward to returning this year.

KCME’s product range boasts an extensive line-up of high performance excavators from its smallest SK08 and SK10SR-2 minis and short radius machines for compact job sites, to its heaviest SK500LC-10 and SK850LC-10 models for larger jobsites and quarries. KCME will present a variety of Kobelco machines on its stand at SaMoTer (Hall 10 stand no. P3-R4), including:

The next-generation Kobelco SK85MSR-7, which was launched at BAUMA 2019. This midi machine offers superior performance, greater efficiency and productivity with increased power and speed over the previous models, as well as one of the most sophisticated operator cabins in class.

The all-new SK140SRLC-7, a new generation of short radius excavators that delivers enhanced efficiency and productivity and sets a new class-defining standard in operational use and operator comfort.

The SK210SNLC-10 and SK240SN-10 excavators, which enjoy the same high performance, lifting capabilities and fuel economy as the conventional SK210LC-10 model, but also benefit from a super-narrow undercarriage, which is ideal for customers in the Alpine region.

In addition, the Kobelco Electric Power SK17 pilot machine, which was first unveiled at BAUMA 2019, will be on the stand at SaMoTer this year. While the 1.7 tonne excavator concept is still in development with German engine manufacturer, Deutz AG (Deutz), Kobelco expects to launch the model to the European market in 2021.

Visitors to the KCME stand at SaMoTer can also expect to see the Kobelco Fanshop container, which will stock a selection of clothing, accessories, gifts and scale models from Kobelco’s official merchandise range – there really is something for all Kobelco fans!

KCME Managing Director, Makoto Kato, said: “We’re delighted to be returning to SaMoTer in 2020. We have significantly increased our coverage of Italy over the past three years and we’re keen to meet our Kobelco customers in this region.”
