The company equipped itself with the latest Kobelco Excavator Generation 10 SK220XDLC-10 to take on challenging projects.
Naidu’s Infracon Pvt Ltd, a Mumbai based infrastructure development company doing excavation and earthmoving jobs, continues to expand its capacity by adding world-class excavator from Kobelco Construction Equipment India Pvt Ltd (KCEI).
Recently the company has bought a Kobelco Hydraulic Excavator Generation 10 SK220XDLC-10 at a recent key handing ceremony held at the site of Dosti Reality in Wadala, Mumbai.
“We are always happy with the working performance of Kobelco machines. This year when we thought of upgrading our inventory we didn’t have to think much before choosing Kobelco,” says K. Sukesh Naidu, Director, Naidu’s Infracon Pvt Ltd, who picked up the excavator in person.
The new Excavator was handed over by KCEI and Suretech team. Giving an overview of the unique features, performance and how beneficial this model would be in terms of business and customers, Danny D’souza, Marketing Manager at Suretech, said, “The SK220XDLC-10 Generation 10 is an extremely powerful excavator in terms of structure, productivity and benefit to the customers. XD stands for ‘Extreme Duty’ which is built to withstand the toughest of conditions in India.”
Kobelco Generation 10 Excavator is developed along six key parameters which are most critical from the user’s perspective: Higher fuel economy, more reliability, better performance, greater comfort, easier maintenance, and environment friendly.
D’souza affirms, “Kobelco now offers the newly improved SK220XDLC-10, the upgraded version of 210, with the revolutionary hydraulics technology – Arm Regeneration System. As a result, the SK220XDLC-10 delivers a high-powered output and is 19 per cent more fuel efficient than the earlier model. Thus, the tagline depicts – Power Meets Efficiency.”
The structures’ material thickness has been enhanced by 15 to 50 per cent, to give much more life and strength, the manufacturer claims. This reliability has been vastly improved by the design, use of heavier plates and more effective filtration systems. There is a new under-body cover to prevent any damage to the components from stones or boulders.
K. Babu Naidu, CMD of Naidu’s Infracon adds, “We wanted to bring in higher productivity, speed and economical solutions to our clients. At the same time we don’t want to compromise on safety. We are certain to see this value added with the new machines. We have challenging projects, where the soil and the conditions are not much friendly, we are very much sure this machine will deliver as per our expectations.”
SK220XDLC-10 is touted to be the most reliable excavators in the industry. According to KCEI’s Associate General Manager Sandeep Navshinde, reliable means product should work for a longer period as compared to normal and should give the value for return. He adds, “We have made our machine structure stronger than the earlier model SK210, mainly the boom plates, arm plates, bucket and undercarriage, which increases the overall life of the machine. Performance wise, our new SK220 delivers the highest power in its class, in mining, excavation or earthwork, it will give maximum productivity. Maximum power means maximum productivity.”
According to Navshinde, “A few things a business customer observes while entering into any contract for buying equipment for his/her earth work or for mining include product specification, service support, availability of spare parts and touch points. Kobelco has emerged as a preferred partner for excelling in all this.”
Today KCEI’s dealer network is very strong having 28 dealers across India to support the customers and over 150 outlets. The company has spare parts and service station across the country at every 150 km in India.
Mumbai based Suretech Infrastructure is one such dealers of KCEI and has struck this deal. D’souza, who represented Suretech during the event, said, “Fuel efficiency and productivity are the two major factors are driving the excavator market in India. After-sales support is also a critical area, as a customer cannot afford the slightest of breakdown of a machine. Kobelco excavators have proven their performance over the years and SK220XDLC-10 is expected to set new standards.”
