World premiere KOBELCO CRANES Mark 2 G-Series at BAUMA 2016


At Bauma 2016 KOBELCO will showcase the latest technologies and development in crawler cranes. Kobelco’s Crawler Crane line-up is engineered to be the best in the industry… with many models excelling in multi-purpose applications from general purpose lifting to clamshell, grab, piling and diaphragm wall operations. Kobelco cranes are designed for excelling worldwide in performance and reliability in the most extreme working conditions and at the most remote job locations! At this years’ Bauma KOBELCO will be introducing: 6 new models of the new Mark 2 KOBELCO CKE-G and BME-G Series: CKE800G-2 with 80t x 3.0m max. lifting capacity CKE900G-2 with 100t x 3.6m, 90t x 3.9m CKE1100G-2 with 110t x 3.6m CKE1350G-2 with 150t x 4.4m CKE2500G-2 with 250t x 4.6m BME800G-2 with 80t x 3.0m

Continuing the excellent concept and features of the G-series as it takes over from the first generation, the Mark 2 G-series machines have been improved to be more environmentally-friendly and easy-to-operate.

Improvement of Lifting Capacity of CKE1350G-2

The CKE1350G-2 of the Mark 2 series provides 150t x 4.4m max. lifting capacity as max. lifting capacity has been improved from 135t to 150t compared to the CKE1350G which had 135t x 4.5m max. lifting capacity.

A New Clean Diesel System At Bauma 2016

KOBELCO is introducing 6 new models with the new Clean Diesel System Engine with exhaust gas emissions in compliance with NRMM Europe Stage IV and US EPA Tier 4 Final regulations. The new Clean Diesel System Engine utilizes a DPF(Diesel Particulate Filter) to reduce particulate matter(PM) and an SCR(Selective Catalytic Reduction) to reduce nitrogen oxide, which is also kept to a minimum using negative ions.

Exhaust cleaning by SCR and DPF

SCR is an exhaust gas after-treatment system. The system converts harmful NOx, which are contained in the diesel engine exhaust gas, with the aid of a catalyst, namely AdBlue®, into harmless diatomic nitrogen and water. With the combination of a DPF, which is perfect for reducing PM, the exhaust gas from the engine is much cleaner and eco-friendly.

Improvement of energy-saving function G-Mode

All G-Series models are engineered with “G-mode”, 3 energy saving systems from KOBELCO to help conserve energy by reducing fuel consumption.

We improved the usability of the G-mode which is adopted on mark 2 G series. As an example, for the idling stop function, under certain conditions, the AIS can be activated by the operator. With the increase in the opportunities to use the idling stop function, further energy-saving effects can be expected.

G-Winch: G-Winch for maximum line speed at low idle, saving energy. The high speed mode allows the hook to be raised or lowered at maximum line speed without raising engine speed when lifting without a load, or even when lifting with a light load.

G-Engine: G-Engine keeps the engine running within fuel-efficient parameters by limiting maximum engine speed. Engine speed is reduced but pump capacity is controlled to maintain maximum winch speed for running or lifting. Using the G-Engine function reduces fuel consumption by approx. 10% when compared to operations on a normal crane.

AIS: This Auto-Idle-Stop feature stops the engine when the engine on the crane is idling, which lowers emissions and saves fuel.

Improvement of transportability and assembly

As with previous models, the dimensions and weights of the main machines and all attachments are less than 2.99m width and 45 ton metric tons. In addition, we made further refinements to auxiliary platforms and boom insert handling, aimed at improving the speed and safety of the assembly and disassembly of these items.

Kobelco’s mark 2 G-series models will be the exciting main attraction at the Kobelco Cranes exhibit at BAUMA 2016. These innovative cranes have been created from end-users and real jobsite experiences, incorporating transport, assembly, and operator friendly concepts.

The Kobelco Remote Observation Satellite System, or KCROSS, is also standard on G Series models and is a proprietary system that allows remote monitoring of the unit from the owner’s desktop. The system was designed to be as user friendly as possible, providing daily, weekly, and monthly reports that the owner can print. This allows him to look at all of the cranes data in a simple and easy-to-read format.

The owner can simply log on and click the daily report tab, and a one-page report will show the hours the unit worked, how much fuel was consumed, how many minutes the crane idled, the main winch was used, how many minutes the crane travelled, how many minutes the crane slewed, how many minutes the crane held a load, what percentage of chart the crane lifted, and much more.

Other design features of KOBELCO G-Series include a compact structure for transportability, a larger cab design, an LMI touch screen, an improved counterweight self-installation mechanism and an optional counterweight detection device. Other features include reduced charts for working with reduced counterweight.

The G-Series is a “versatile” crane designed to stand front and center in many applications. The cranes were designed for ease of use and simplicity, with the customer in mind.
