I'm running a newer SK350 loading 25 tonners and I find it quite powerful, with fairly smooth hydraulics, good fuel efficiency (Hino engine), and comfy cab. My boss says parts have never been a problem, the only problem is that it's used and the previous operator or owner wasn't big on greasing it so the pins and bushings are pretty sloppy. Other than that Kobelco is a potential candidate when I do decide to buy a machine. I've never heard of electric swing on an excavator and this one certainly doesn't have it.
