At KOBELCO Construction Machinery USA’s CONEXPO booth, the company displayed a limited edition military-inspired crawler excavator. KOBELCO created only five limited edition SK350LC crawler excavators wrapped in a patriotic/military design as part of a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). KOBELCO recently announced it will donate $100,000 to this non-profit that supports a full range of programs and services for this generation of injured veterans and their families.

KOBELCO invited all CONEXPO-CON/AGG attendees and presenters to visit its booth and take a photo with this unique crawler excavator wrapped in graphics including the American flag, silhouettes of soldiers and logos from all five of the United States Armed Forces. KOBELCO also accepted donations for the WWP and collected them in the machine’s bucket.

Booth signage recognized the authorized KOBELCO dealers and end-user retail customers who purchased the limited edition SK350’s. The proud purchasers of these machines saluting our troops are Abele Tractor & Equipment Co., Inc. (Albany, NY), Baschmann Services Inc., (Elma, NY), Mid Country Machinery (Fort Dodge, IA), Scott-Gallaher Inc. (Roanoke, VA) and Southeastern Equipment Co., Inc.  (Cambridge, OH). Southeastern sold its unit to Shelly & Sands, Inc., headquartered in Zanesville, OH, a company specializing in infrastructure and highway construction in the Midwest.

“KOBELCO wants to thank the dealers and end users that have helped us support such an important cause in a very impactful way,” states Ron Hargrave, Vice President of Operations for KOBLECO Construction Machinery USA. “Only five of these patriotic SK350’s exist so this is an opportunity to see something you’re likely not going see again, while giving something back to the men and women who have sacrificed so much to protect our country.”
