With its ultralong working equipment, even in model form the excavator has an impressive size, just like the prototype.


The special thing about the Kobelco demolition excavator is the modular concept of the equipment. This allows the execution of a variety of work with only one machine. In addition to the short basic arm on the SK400, there are a two so-called ‘in-between outrigger arms’ which are extending pieces, two ‘ultra-long’ ...

... arms with working equipment pieces, and a ‘separate’ outrigger arm. The individual pieces of the system can be connected with the ‘Next’ connection system. A further specialty is the way the cylinders have been attached to UHD equipment. With this, it is possible to stow away very compactly allowing for low transporting measurements. A further specialty of the SK 400 is the two-part counterweight, which, including the housing of 3.22 t and the interior part of 6.86 t, reaches a total of 10 t. With it and a short basic arm attached, the machine reaches a transportation weight of 38.7 tons. With the longest combination of attachments, the excavator reaches a height of 24.7 m. It is powered by a Hino six-cylinder JO8EVVKSDK producing 213 kW.

The model from Motorart

Here we see the shorter arm attached.


Because of the careful layout of the hydraulic cylinders, the long equipment has optimal transportation measurements.


There are not a lot of demolition machines and so the world of collectors was especially happy about the announcement and looked forward eagerly to the new model. To increase the fun in assembling the unit, Motorart has packed the excavator and its separate components individually. It is a bit funny that both outrigger arm variants have been equipped with the same set of demolition scissors despite the fact that they can be changed quite easily. One would have wished that they had included a matching shovel for the smaller arm.

Including all attachment parts, the model is true to scale and is made mainly from metal. The lower chassis has been modeled with the additional weight which can be telescoped prototypically. The drives are also exactly made and the metal tracks with their three-part chain links are easy to turn and the logo is engraved on the drive wheels.

The shape of the upper chassis has been well replicated; the air intake grilles are engravings and have been highlighted with black paint. The counterweight has been made in two parts, as on the original, which is awesome! The safety railings on the right-hand side are made from solid wire as are the brackets for the rear-view mirrors. The cabin tilts and has rock protection grilles at the front and on the roof. The cabin glass has printedon window separation bars and rubber gaskets. The interior has multi-colored decoration.

Included in the equipment is a 2.4 m long ‘in-between’ arm, the ultra-long work equipment set with a 8.7 m long jib as well as the short outrigger arm with a jib; also included and packed in a plastic bag are connecting pieces and stands. All outrigger arms and jibs are very nicely engraved and show many details but, unfortunately, that even includes the hydraulic lines which have been quite deeply engraved and look a bit sculptural but not quite real. The flexible parts of the lines are made from rubber but have just barely enough length.

The model has no problem reaching all the maximum working positions, which is positive. The twice-included demolition shears are of the KR1350TPR-40 type and have an open jaw width of 1350 mm and a weight of 3.75 t. They turn 360° and are good copies of the original.

The paint job has been applied evenly and covers well and the printed-on details are very sharp. Happily, many yellow caution decals decorate the model.
