Case unveils Hillhead line-up



With one of the largest stands at this year’s Hillhead exhibition, Case Construction will exhibit an extensive selection of machines that demonstrate innovation and engineering excellence.

With 90% of all machines equipped with the company’s latest T4i engines and SCR advanced fuel-saving system technology, the company continues to lead the way with fuel-efficient, powerful equipment for the quarrying, construction, and industrial sectors.

The Case Heavy range, which is renowned for machines equipped to work in the most demanding environments, will take centre stage with a line-up that includes 621FXT, 721FXR, 1021F, 1121F F series wheel loaders, CX130C, CX145, CX210C, CX370C and CX800B crawler excavators, plus a 1650M dozer. Machines from the Midi range will include the WX180 wheeled excavator, together with Case’s Tier 4 final midi excavators, the CX75C SR and CX80C SR models. The Compact line-up will include Case’s new Tier 4 SV185, and a CX18B, CX30B and CX50B zero-swing mini excavator, plus a 580ST series backhoe loader.

Hillhead will also be the venue for the second qualifying round of the Case Rodeo Challenge where entrants are invited to test their skill operating a Case mini excavator against the clock. The winner will then represent the UK and compete against operators from across Europe at the final which will be held in Paris later in the year.

Case will also launch ProCare, a new and inclusive maintenance package solution, which offers a three-year extended coverage, cost control with planned maintenance, and easy fleet management with Case Advanced SiteWatch™ system.

As well as the static stand display, Case will have four machines working in the quarry demonstration area - an F series 1021F wheel loader, plus CX350C, CX370C, and CX210C crawler excavators.

The Case ‘big boys’ - fast, fuel-efficient and highly productive

The Case F series has been perfectly designed to work across all aggregate production operations. All the machines within this range are equipped with efficient, low-emission Tier 4i engines and fuel-saving selective catalytic reduction technology (SCR). This results in a combination of powerful performance with superior fuel efficiency, avoiding the use of Diesel Particulate Filter which requires frequent maintenance and regular replacement. Efficient transmission is provided by the Case PROSHIFT five-speed transmission, incorporating a range of features which enables operators to work at lower rpm and fully utilise the engine’s outstanding torque. The F series also delivers class-leading comfort and visibility, including the Case Quiet Cab, optional joystick steering, a standard rear-view camera, floor-to-ceiling windows and improved lighting system.

Case’s C series crawler excavator range offers some of the most productive machines in their class. They are fully-equipped to work in the most demanding applications, ranging from waste re-handling to demolition, rock handling and mass excavation. As with other ranges, the C series benefits from Tier 4i engines, and from the Case Intelligent Hydraulic System (CIHS) which incorporates five electronically-managed energy-saving systems.

The M Series dozers use highly-efficient hydrostatic transmissions to deliver a class-leading drawbar pull - 311kN for the 1650M model. They are powered exclusively by Tier 4i FPT engines and they also use SCR technology to achieve lower emissions with improved fuel consumption. These machines boast a 9-16% increase in power, yet deliver more than 10% fuel saving, along with a 19% increase in productive efficiency.

Midi range leads the way with Tier 4 Final

Case continues to lead the way when it comes to cutting emissions, with the introduction last year of the company’s first Tier 4 final midi excavators. To ensure they meet the stringent exhaust standards they use cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) and a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC). These high-performance machines benefit from leading emission reductions and reduced dimensions, make them ideally suited to working on urban sites.

Case’s Compact range - punching above its weight

The Case compact range offers strength and performance, combined with complete controllability, making them the perfect solution for working in confined spaces.

The B series mini excavators benefit from Case’s heavy crawler excavator hydraulic technology. The high hydraulic power allows the use of larger buckets and operations are smoother under heavy loads. Equipped with reliable engines and powerful hydraulics, they also provide excellent stability. As with all Case machines, safety is a design priority, both the cab and canopy complying with FOPS, ROPS and TOPS safety regulations.

Case’s new SV185 skid steer loader is built with the hydraulics and lift to tackle the toughest jobs. The SV185 offers a DOC-Only solution to meet Tier 4 emissions regulations while delivering more power and capability within the same compact skid steer dimensions. There is also a new heating and air conditioning systems which creates a comfortable operating environment.
