Pump it up

Kobelco has introduced its SL6000. Powered by a Tier III-compliant, Hino E13C-UV, 429-hp diesel engine, and with six variable-displacement hydraulic pumps, the SL6000 can be broken down into easily transportable subassemblies.
Each fully assembled crawler-track assembly weighs 88,200 lb, and the boom and jib sections can be “nested” for transportation. The main winch, auxiliary winch and optional luffing-jib winch are conveniently located in the lower boom, reducing the transportation weight of the base machine. In order to reduce the assembly time and to further reduce the transportation weight of the base machine, Kobelco designed the SL6000 with the boom winch mounted on the mast and with the boom wire rope already reeved through the sheaves of the upper and lower spreader.
