Short Radius Excavators Offer Increased Efficiency
Case will demonstrate two new short radius excavators at Intermat in April. The CX235C SR and a prototype CX145C SR use low emission Isuzu engines to meet Tier 4 Interim emissions legislation, providing a 17.5% fuel consumption improvement over previous models and delivering up to 7% faster cycle times.
With cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) and a diesel particulate diffusor (DPD), the machines benefit from five additional energy saving systems, designed to improve control over engine hydraulic performance. With an easy to use rotary mode selection dial, operators can choose between Auto, Heavy and Superpower modes, plus an Auto-Power Boost function for maximum digging and lifting capability.
The short radius cab offers a class-leading operator environment, with additional internal space and increased glazing, plus greatly reduced noise levels both internally and externally. A new multi-function colour monitor provides control of various machine systems, plus acts as a monitor for up to two rear view cameras.
Tier 4 Power For Additional C Series Models
Low emission Tier 4 Interim engines, with cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) are now available in an addition seven C Series excavator models. These include the CX130C, CX160C, CX180C, CX210C, CX210C Long Reach, CX470C and the CX470C ME.
The machines benefit from five additional hydraulic energy saving systems, contributing to a 10% fuel saving compared to the B Series models that they replace. Faster cycle times and increased lift capacities also boost productivity.
The new C Series cab offers a first-class operator environment, with 5% more space, lower noise levels, increased comfort and a new
Wheeled Loaders Demonstrate Higher Productivity
- The central cooling pack is mounted away from dust and debris, providing increased cooling capacity and easy cleaning. This results in prolonged engine oil and coolant life and reducing operating cost.
- The engine in both machines is mounted at the rear of the chassis, behind the cooling pack. This allows for a lighter counterweight, with positive effect on lifting and digging performance, resulting in less stress for driveline components and reduced fuel consumption as the overall machine weight is lower.
As with all F Series Case wheeled loaders, the
The Case Ride Control system, which eliminates bounce in the loader arms while travelling at speed and improves front loader bucket retention, becomes Auto Ride Control. The system is now automatically activated during travel.
At the rear the Case backhoe has a redesigned dipper stick with teeth for easier grabbing of rocks and timber. This also provides increased protection of the dipper in tough terrain. Slew dampening (PRO CONTROLTM) is also included for faster, smoother and more accurate positioning of the backhoe over trenches and other excavations, resulting in faster cycle times and increased productivity.
Telematics Monitoring Available From Case Dealers
