CASE shows its new ranges at Plantworx 2017
20 April 2017
CASE Construction Equipment will present its new and upgraded machine ranges and will host the UK heat of the CASE Rodeo competition at Plantworx 2017.
Making their first UK appearance since their official launch in January and March respectively, will be models from the new C Series mini excavators, upgraded Tier 4 final backhoe loaders and the new G Series wheel loaders, all of which will feature CASE’s new livery.
There will be an impressive display of machines designed for all sectors of the construction, quarrying, rental, and waste and recycling industries, equipped with the latest emissions-compliant engines and fuel-saving technology. These will include crawler excavators ranging from the midi CX75C and CX80C up to the heavy range D Series CX130D, CX245D SR, and CX290D MH, as well as the 1150M dozer, plus a 690ST backhoe loader and a TR270 compact track loader.
As well as viewing the new machines there will be plenty to see and do at the CASE stand as Plantworx will be the venue for the UK qualifying round of the CASE Rodeo Challenge. Here operators are invited to test their skill and speed to win a place representing the UK at the finals which take place in Paris later in the year. The CASE team will also be available to explain about the latest innovations across all the lines, CASE SiteWatch telematics, plus maintenance programmes and the latest competitive finance options.
CASE New G Series – performance and design innovation
In its 60th year of wheel loader production, this latest generation of wheel loaders demonstrates how the company continues to innovate and set industry standards. There will be three models on show - a 721G MH XR, 821G Z-bar and 1021G Z-bar, from a total of seven (from 11.1 up to 30 tonnes). Powered by efficient EU Stage IV/Tier 4 Final diesel engines means there is no Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). As well as delivering proven CASE productivity, good fuel efficiency and outstanding performance, visitors will have the opportunity to see for themselves the revolutionary new cab. Designed with operator comfort ‘front of mind’, key benefits include best-in-class visibility, breakthrough comfort and outstanding operator protection. This is also CASE’s quietest, most comfortable cab ever available.
New C Series minis offer the complete package
There will also be three of the new minis on display: a CX18C, a CX26C and a CX60C. With six models currently available (from 1.7 to 6 tonnes), and more to be added later this year and in 2018, there is a model to suit any application. CASE’s new Series minis are a technological landmark for the mini excavator market. Designed specifically with the hire and rental sectors in mind they offer high performance, maximum comfort and improved safety. They benefit from proven engines and hydraulic systems that deliver more power and increased performance, and five of the six new models comply with Tier 4 Final emission standards. Daily maintenance is fast and easy, with service points accessible at ground level. Safety features on this range include ROPS, TOPS and FOPS compliance, emergency stop switch, travel alarm and object handling kit, plus outstanding all round visibility, and a rear view camera further enhances safety on the jobsite.
CASE Tier 4 compliant upgraded backhoe loaders
The new upgraded T Series backhoe loaders will be represented by the 690ST. All three models benefit from CASE’s unique SCR-only solution, which ensures a powerful performance with outstanding fuel efficiency – eliminating the need for Diesel Particulate Filter or regeneration. The efficiency of the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) after-treatment system has been optimised so that Tier 4 Final standards are achieved without a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst. The choice of new ‘in-line” backhoe geometry is now also extended to the full range and customers can choose from the well-known CASE boom with overlapping cylinders and outer extendahoe and new in-line design on all three models.
CASE - machines for all applications
The CASE D Series crawler excavators line-up have gained a fierce reputation for their performance, productivity, reliability, and low running and operator costs thanks to their Tier 4 Final (Stage IV) maintenance-free technology. On show will be a CX130D, and a CX245D SR - the most powerful and efficient minimum swing radius excavator CASE has ever introduced, designed for increased digging and lifting power in confined work areas. There will also be a CX290D materials handler which brings the performance advantages of the D Series line to the scrap and waste handling industries. With an operating weight of 72,100 pounds and lift capacities of up to 24,650 pounds it is designed specifically for use with grapples, magnets, shears and other attachments used in the scrap and waste industries.
Completing the heavy machine display will the 1150M dozer, which offers best-in-class drawbar pull, exclusive SCR technology, maximum visibility, a quiet cab, adjustable operator controls and time-saving serviceability features.
As well as the new C Series minis the compact range display will include Tier 4 Final midi CX75C and CX80C excavators. Ideally suited to urban construction and road building applications they offer industry-leading emissions performance plus a choice of three boom systems, four auxiliary hydraulic control systems, three track options and two dipper-stick lengths. There will also be a CASE TR270 compact track loader from a range that delivers some of the best breakout forces in the industry and one of the widest cabs available.
