CASE CX470C Excavator

Power and efficiency are optimized by advanced technologies including the unique CASE Intelligent Hydraulic System that helps manage the engine and hydraulics. And performance is maximized with five percent quicker cycle times — allowing you to fill up more trucks every shift. For high performance that matches the unique demands of each job, Case Smart Digging System attachments are available with pin-on buckets including: heavy-duty, severe duty, rock and high capacity. New coupler specific buckets are also available for better performance when working with the Case Multi-Fit coupler.
Interim Tier 4 CEGR technology, matched with the Intelligent Hydraulic System, delivers fuel consumption savings of up to 15% versus the standard configuration.

Operator comfort and productivity is enhanced with increased cab space, improved air flow and air conditioning. Automotive level sound dampening of 71 dba is achieved with best-in-class soundproofing, while real time fuel consumption and images from the rear of the swing house are visible on the new 7-inch control monitor display.

Maintenance is easy with wide-open panels for easy access to service points, ground level access to grouped lubrication points, along with quick-change filters and simple gauges for daily service checks The Case EMS (Easy Maintenance System) utilizes stratified bushings and plated pins to hold grease longer, prevent rattling, and lengthen service intervals.
