At the heart of many of the new and improved machines on the Case stand are proven engines that meet the requirements of Tier 4 interim emissions legislation. Through the use of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (CEGR) Case equipment will achieve a dramatic reduction in particulate matter (PM) and in the outputs of nitrogen oxides (NOx), in line with the Tier 4 interim regulations.
The first two models from the new C Series of Case crawler excavators are a prime example of this new technology at work. The 24.7 tonne CX250C and the 36.7 tonne CX370C are powered by Tier 4 interim compliant engines featuring multiple fuel injection, variable displacement turbocharging, dual exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) and a diesel particulate diffuser.
Though offering the same high power ratings as their predecessors, both machines will provide customers with up to a 10% improvement in fuel consumption. C Series models are equipped with five energy saving systems, to automatically reduce engine revs during boom lower and slew operation, return to idle when the joysticks are not being used, reduce flow at the start of swing operations, automatically stop the engine after a preset idle time and adjust hydraulic pressures in digging operations.
The machines feature an improved cab environment, with full colour multi-function displays, easier access and a 2dB(A) internal noise reduction. Automatic climate control ensures that the operator remains comfortable throughout the working day. C Series models have a new hammer and high flow auxiliary hydraulic system and there is a revised attachment design for faster operation and improved lifting performance.
The 821F wheeled loader take's centre stage at Samoter, boasting a Tier 4 interim compliant 6.7 litre engine. With a four-mode power control system, the operator can choose the perfect power output to match the task, reducing fuel consumption by up to 10% and increasing productivity. An optional five-speed automatic transmission contributes to the outstanding reduction in fuel consumption.
The F Series machine boasts stronger, faster hydraulics, to deliver superior performance. Customers can choose between a single servo lever and an optional two-lever hydraulic control system for high production operations. The new five-speed automatic transmission with torque lock-up ensures faster acceleration and higher travel speeds compared to the E Series.
Operators can opt for the award-winning Case Joystick Steering system, both the 821F and the 921F can be specified with standard Z-Bar loader arms or XR extra reach booms.
Customersl have the opportunity to see a 921F loader in action in real site conditions, working at the nearby Cava Lonardi quarry together with IVECO Astra. Regular shuttle buses are being provided to take customers to and from the site. The 921F is powered by a 242hp (180kW) engine and operates with up to a 3.6m3 bucket, taking Case into a new sector of the loader market.
The Construction King is back for customers looking forward to saving time and money. Equipped with the most powerful engine range on the market, the new T Series Construction King tractor loader backhoe (TLB) range uses 10% less fuel than previous models. The machines come with more grip thanks to wider 20” tires and feature a loading capacity increased by 20%. For transport on road, height is reduced by 30cm thanks to the new backhoe design, which also allows fast attachment changes from the cab thanks to the World’s first integrated hydraulic quick coupler. Backhoe side shifting without damaging the city ground is possible thanks to the King Shift option.
The equal-sized wheel, top of the range 695ST will be present on the Case stand at Samoter, providing the ultimate in cab comfort and digging ability for the discerning loader backhoe customer.
Look out for a report on the first 590ST backhoe loader to be delivered in the UK, here on the Digger Blog soon!
