Not content with one version, Kobelco has commissioned a second version of the new SK140SRLC-7 tracked excavator from Conrad which has been fitted with a two-piece main boom which is hydraulically adjustable. This is a nice addition to the fast-growing range of Kobelco models and shows that Kobelco are listening to what collectors want in a model.

The boom is not the only difference, as the undercarriage has been fitted with a height adjustable blade. The model uses the same tooling for the main body and cabin castings and still comes with the detachable counterweight. This version is also exclusive, and only available from the Kobelco fanshop.
