CASE Construction Equipment, a brand of CNH Industrial, announced today the full availability of the new 96 horsepower 851 EX Backhoe Loaders, the most powerful backhoe loader in India. Mr. Richard Tobin, CEO of CNH Industrial, officially handed over the keys of the first full production unit of the new 851 EX backhoe loader to a key contractor at a ceremony held at the CASE India plant in Pithampur, Madhya Pradesh, where it was designed and manufactured.
Mr. Richard Tobin, CEO of CNH Industrial said, “India and the Asia Pacific Region are key markets for CNH Industrial, and we have maintained significant investments in order to provide the best products and support to our customers in the region. Our investments have also enabled us to develop the new EX Series backhoes at the Pithampur plant to meet the specific requirements of construction businesses.”
The new CASE 851 EX Series backhoe loader, which was previewed at the EXCON 2013 show in November 2013 at Bangalore, is the most powerful model available in the Indian market and fits at the top of the three-model range that also includes the 770 EX and 770 EX Magnum.
The reliable and proven 96 horsepower 8000 engine, developed by CASE sister partner FPT Industrial, delivers a powerful performance and fast response time, enabling operators to maximize productivity. This coupled with the exceptional fuel savings of up to 13% resulting from the air aftercooler system, makes the 8000 series the most fuel-efficient engine in the market.
The load sensing hydraulic system delivers maximum power where it is needed, while the simultaneous operation of the hydraulic receivers maximizes productivity and minimizes fuel consumption. With the hydraulically shifted clutches the operator can change direction and travel speed on the go. The control valves deliver smooth speed and direction shifts, resulting in smooth and accurate operation.
CASE is recognized around the world as a leading backhoe loader manufacturer with over 600,000 units sold. In India, it is a major player in this segment leveraging its expertise and strong local manufacturing capabilities.
The company has focused over the years its resources on the Pithampur manufacturing operations, dedicated to developing and producing its machines for the construction industry. Today the facility implements World Class Manufacturing methodologies to achieve the high levels of quality and efficiency of CNH Industrial’s facilities around the world. It produces market leading equipment, such as its range of vibratory soil compactors that holds the n.1 position in India and was recently expanded with the addition of the new DX1107 model. The continued investments in product development and of the production line at Pithampur are testament to CASE’s dedicated efforts towards achieving their long term goal of optimizing these operations for the domestic and global construction equipment needs.
