April 11 - Japanese crane manufacturer Kobelco Cranes is displaying its CKE2500 G-series 250-ton multipurpose crawler crane at the Bauma 2013 conference and exhibition in Munich.

The crane comes equipped with Kobelco's innovative G-mode system that features three energy saving measures - G-Engine, G-Winch and Auto-Idle Stop - that combine to reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions by 25 percent.
The G-mode system also drops nitrogen oxide emissions by 50 percent; particle emissions are reduced by 90 percent over older Kobelco crane models.
