CASE Construction Equipment launches the new Backhoe Loader SV Series, over 60 years in the making and widely acclaimed legendary king of backhoe loaders. A pioneer market leader since 1957, the SV Series features a new expanded cab with enhanced controls retaining the best in class features and performance. These features deliver benefits including greater operator comfort and increased productivity.
Productivity gains with superior operator comfort and control
The totally redesigned and restyled interior and exterior cab is wider, providing greater clearance for the operator’s legs when rotating the seat between forward facing and rear facing configuration, and superior accessibility to the cab. The left-hand cab console redesign also places the wiper tank beneath one of the new open tray storage units, enabling convenient refills via the left-hand door.
The new Backhoe Loader SV Series has many improvements to operators’ comfort, which result in big productivity gains. A relocated parking brake, new speedometer option, regrouped switches on the right-hand console, new integrated F-N-R switch in the loader control lever on the Power Shift model, new joystick roller switch for extending dipper operation and relocated stabiliser levers all add up to time savings.
Operator safety has been enhanced with new rear side glasses that provide greater visibility and are less expensive to replace. Additional safety features include the relocation of the horn switch onto the left gear shifter on Power Shift units for easier and quicker accessibility in case of emergency. Safety and comfort have clearly been a focus of the SV Series’ design team.
Finally, operators’ comfort and needs have been further accommodated by including 2 USB ports, a 12v port on the instrument cluster, a mobile phone holder, latest Bluetooth technology, and an industry leading storage capacity that is 4 times greater than the previous series. It includes 2 lockable compartments, 2 bottle holders, 4 open trays, and a cooling box, all finished with practical yet stylish injection moulded plastics.
FPT meaning of durability and performances
The proven FPT engine design optimises the fuel consumption during both production and travel and especially in backhoe digging applications. It continues to deliver a strong performance with best-in-class power and torque density.
Operating costs are kept at a minimum thanks to the variable volume pump that only delivers oil when needed. The familiar and effective one-side serviceability layout is retained for swift and convenient maintenance operations.
A lifetime of innovation: The Legend of The King continues
This latest SV Series from CASE follows over sixty years of innovation that has earned all CASE backhoe loaders their unofficial name of The King. CASE manufactured the first ever factory integrated backhoe loader in 1957, closely followed by the first diesel powered model in 1959. Many more firsts followed with ride control, powershift transmission and the uniquely flexible integrated quick coupler, a major feature even in today’s models.
