Case claims greater productivity for new T series models

17 Dec 10 Four new T Series tractor loader backhoe models have been added to Case Construction Equipment’s Construction King series. Case says the new models offer improved productivity, lower running costs and faster operation.

Customers can specify whether they want Powershift or Powershuttle transmission, pilot or mechanical backhoe controls, and two- or four-wheel steering.

All four models have a 1.2m3 front loader bucket as standard, 20% larger than the previous models, thus speeding loading cycles. Case will also make a standard mechanical quick coupler for the backhoe, with a hydraulic coupler available as an option.

Load sensing hydraulics ensure that power is available on demand, contributing to a 10% reduction in fuel consumption and lower engine noise levels.

Overlapping backhoe boom cylinders provide a transport height under 3.6m - which is 30cm less then on previous models - and a slim boom profile for improved visibility.

The outer dipper section of the Extendahoe  is powered by a hydraulic cylinder and the curved main boom profile ensures easy truck loading and improved digging ability, Case says. Boom and swing cylinders come with standard end stroke cushioning to prolong component life and combat operator fatigue.

Next year a hydraulic side shift for the backhoe will be introduced.

An optional handling kit comprises a safe lifting hook with hose burst valves on boom and dipper cylinders and an overload warning device. Stabiliser legs are also supplied with safety hose burst valves, while rubber pads on the legs can be used to prevent damage to the working area.
