UK customers will get their first chance to see many of CASE Construction Equipment’s latest models in action at this year’s Hillhead quarrying, construction and recycling exhibition in June. The company will be showcasing 19 different models, including four machines from its new D series excavator range fresh from their launch at Bauma in April.
The heavy range line-up includes the new D Series crawler excavators, wheel loaders, and the largest CASE dozer; and some of the machines will also be in action in the demonstration area throughout the event. There will also be an extensive range of equipment from the compact line, including mini and midi excavators, backhoe loaders, and skid steer loaders.
Hillhead will also be the venue for the second qualifying round of the annual CASE Rodeo Challenge – an event designed to test the skill and speed of operators throughout Europe, with the best going forward to this year’s final in Paris.
Taking pride of place on the CASE stand will be six machines from the D Series of crawler excavators, including four new models that were unveiled for the first time at Bauma 2016. All D series excavators feature CASE’s exceptionally fuel-efficient Tier 4 Final (Stage IV) with its maintenance-free SCR and DOC-only solution which achieve the highest emission standard without the need for a diesel particulate filter
The excavators on display will include the CX210D and CX370D, which were launched as part of the original D series line-up in April 2015. They will be joined by two brand new models at either end of the range: the CX130D and the CX490D. The medium range 14t CX130D has a 78.5 kW (105 hp) engine generating 356Nm of torque, and has a maximum reach of 8,3m and digging depth of 5,5m.
At the heavier end of the range, the CX 490D weighs 49.4t and features a 270kW (362hp) engine capable of generating 1,363Nm of torque, with a maximum reach of 11.97 m and digging depth of 7.72m. Larger still is the top of the range CX500D in Mass Excavation version, which delivers a massive performance with an operating weight above 50t. This machine will be on the CASE stand, and can also be seen in in action in the demonstration area throughout the three days of the event.
Also on display will be the prototype CX290D MH, a 30t crawler excavator designed specifically for the materials handling market.
Alongside the D series crawler excavator models will be the CX145C from the existing Tier 4 Interim (Stage IIIB) C series, which offers efficiency and fuel saving benefits through the use of the CASE Intelligent Hydraulic System.
CASE will be showing four models from its renowned F Series of wheel loaders including, 621FXT, 821F, 921F and 1121F. All models in this range over 14tonne benefit from Tier 4 Final (Stage IV) emissions requirements: engines. Visitors to Hillhead will also be able to see the heavy duty 1121F in action in the demonstration area.
Completing CASE’s heavy range line-up at Hillhead will be a 2050M crawler dozer, the largest in the CASE lineup. The 20 – 22t 2050M was designed with mass and muscle in mind, and it also makes use of SCR technology to reduce both fuel consumption and time spent on maintenance.
In addition to the heavy equipment, CASE will be showing an extensive and versatile range of compact equipment ideally suited to urban construction and road building. Among the machines on display will be four compact and mid sized crawler excavators ranging from 2.7t to 8.7t in weight: the CX26B, CX50B, CX75C and CX80C. These machines also offer outstanding comfort and best-in-class lifting capacity.
Also on show will be the TR310 compact tracked loader – the most powerful and efficient medium-frame compact track loader in CASE’s lineup. The TR310 offers best-in-class power thanks to larger lift cylinders and a maintenance-free Tier 4 Final engine, and has wider tracks to improve stability and lower ground pressure.
The final section of CASE’s Hillhead display will feature the latest developments in technology for its Construction King backhoe range, including a new backhoe boom and loader arm for the 580ST model. The new backhoe design with in-line cylinder geometry and inner Extendahoe will be available as an alternative to the existing boom with overlapping cylinders and outer Extendahoe, giving customers a choice of design.
The CASE stand at Hillhead will also include the largest model in the company’s backhoe loader range, the 695ST. This four equal-sized wheel machine is powered by a 110hp engine driving through a standard Powershift transmission, and customers can choose between pilot or mechanical control systems. Visitors to Hillhead will be able to see the machine fitted with pilot controls.
All of the models that CASE is exhibiting can be seen at Stand X5 at Hillhead, which runs from 28th to 30th June 2016 at Hillhead Quarry, Buxton, Derbyshire.
