Through the years, Kobelco continued to grow and evolve their excavator designs, introducing their Beetle mini-excavator in 1996. In 2006, they debuted an environmentally conscious hybrid excavator and reduce fuel consumption of their other excavators by 20%. They continue to combine power, efficiency, and environmental consciousness in their excavator designs.
