CASE is launching the new joystick levers for the 836C and 856C motorgraders. The new joystick control
delivers improved moldboard control, along with a range of steering upgrades which are an addition to the
already great features of the grader.
• reduced effort & high precision thanks to the new electro-hydraulic joystick control.
• increased productivity & efficiency thanks to the Dual Power system, automatic gear shifting and
• best operator comfort & controllability thanks to optimised moldboard control and a redesigned
• European Stage V emissions standard compliant thanks to the Selective Catalytic Reduction
(SCRoF) exhaust after-treatment system.
• Increased safety thanks to a rear-view camera reducing the need for the operator to continually
turn when working.
The electro-hydraulic joystick control delivers a new level of moldboard control to the operator. The
Electro-hydraulic joysticks are built into multi-adjustable armrests on each side of the operator’s seat.
Each joystick is equipped with multiple roller switches and push buttons, to control the working hydraulic
and steering functions. The redesigned side console now contains additional switches that allows adjustments
to the system as per the operator’s needs.
The new Joystick Steering allows the operator to steer the machine using the left-hand side joystick. All
steering commands, including turning the front wheels, moving the frame articulation and setting the wheel
lean are available through the joystick. The also new RTC function allows the operator to return all
steering commands back to the centred position, by just pushing the dedicated button. This allows the operator
to control the machine without having to take their hands off the joystick levers, reducing effort
and increasing productivity.
Comfort Steering, when activated, reduces the number of steering wheel turns required to fully turn the
machine. This improves fine control of the steering wheel and makes it easier to complete a full U-turn,
with just a small turn of the steering wheel.
Combined Steering brings together the various steering commands into one control function. Once
activated, front wheel steering, frame articulation and wheel lean work together as the operator turns the
steering wheels or moves the joystick. This provides the operator with the ability to make narrow turns
without having to think about which steering command to use individually.
Additionally, with activated TwinLift, operators have the possibility to move both lift cylinders by using just
the right-hand joystick. TwinLift makes it easier for the operator to correct the moldboard position without
having to work both joysticks. This feature also assists the operator, when grading a wider slope, as
the operator can simply lift the moldboard with one joystick to reposition the machine for the next pass.
The CASE C-Series graders are powered by the latest 6.7-litre six-cylinder FPT diesel engines. Using Hi-e-
SCR2 technology, they feature a maintenance-free Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) and Selective Catalytic
Reduction (SCRoF) exhaust after-treatment system to comply with the European Stage V emissions
standard. This combined system helps to create a compact engine compartment with exhaust temperatures
in normal operation on average 200°C below that of a traditional particulate filter.
The engines are application-engineered specifically to work in a grader operation, where fast torque
response is required to maintain high productivity levels. A Dual Power system offers increased engine output
from fourth to sixth gear. In the case of the 836C and 836C AWD, the engine develops 102kW
(138hp) in first to third gears, shifting to 115kW (156hp) in fourth to sixth ratio. For the larger 856C and
856C AWD, the engine develops 129kW (173hp) in first to third, lifting to 142kW (190hp) in fourth to
The power is transmitted through an Ergopower powershift transmission with six forward and three reverse
gears. Automatic gear shifting optimises machine performance, leaving the operator free to concentrate
on moldboard and blade work. A no-stall torque converter and 100% automatic differential lock
ensures maximum traction in all operating conditions.
All-wheel drive models also feature a Creep mode, allowing the operator to set the forward speed almost
independently of engine rpm. This makes the grader suitable for compaction work, reducing the overall
fleet of machines required on site, increasing efficiency and cutting cost for the customer. Both the 4WD
and 6WD models are available with optional 24” tyres, ideal for uneven soils and when low tyre bumping
effect is required.
The CASE moldboard design maximises controllability, with a low friction, roller-mounted encapsulated
slewing ring delivering jolt-free rotation torque. This moldboard design results in fewer greasing points,
which reduce the maintenance time and eliminates the need for periodic replacement of wear inserts -
reducing the costs for the customer.
An A-Shape frame virtually eliminates lateral stress in off-set positioning and the central saddle can be set
hydraulically in five different positions. The operator can rotate the blade over 90° to each side without
any mechanical interference. An infinitely variable radius blade reduces traction effort and improves material
roll in finishing operations.
All C-Series CASE graders can be equipped from the factory prepared for the most commonly used blade
control solutions. The grader can be delivered to the customer in a plug-and-play set-up, allowing rapid installation
of 2D and 3D machine control systems. These automatic blade control systems allow even the
most inexperienced operator to achieve higher productivity and more constant output.
The machines feature a rear-mounted, low-profile, ROPS/FOPS cab with heated and air-suspended seat,
that delivers best-in-class levels of operator comfort and visibility, while keeping overall machine height
low to avoid transport concerns. Wide, tinted glass provides an excellent view around the machines, with
a full view of the mouldboard for the seated operator. A rear-view camera provides increased safety when
reversing, reducing the need for the operator to continually turn when working.
Boosting uptime and customer peace of mind with CASE® Service Solutions
To further boost the productivity, profitability and uptime of the revised 836C & 856C, CASE has available
a range of connected and non-connected after-sales services, CASE Service Solutions, which supports
customers’ experiences of CASE equipment.
The complete fleet management tool CASE SiteWatch™ enables geolocation, fleet security using geofences
and unauthorized use alerts and flexible reporting. This includes key performance indicators (KPIs)
such as fuel consumption, utilization rate, machine hours and idle time, so productivity and profitability can
be monitored and optimised. The data is easily accessible via a portal.
CASE SiteConnect enhances telemetry data used by CASE’s Uptime Center team to provide dealers with
alerts based on machine performance. Fast corrective action to minimize downtime is possible, as dealers
remotely access machine data and take corrective action faster. This enables dealers to be proactive in
managing customers’ machines and boosting uptime. Both SiteWatch and SiteConnect are available as
options with the newly revised models.
Customers benefit from greater peace of mind with CASE Care, CASE Protect and CASE Fluid Analysis.
CASE Care is a standard planned maintenance programme, with genuine parts and lubricants. The
programme is underpinned by the support, logistics and technical expertise of the wide-reaching CASE
dealer network. CASE Protect is an extended warranty program and CASE Fluid Analysis aims to prevent
major failures, optimising the asset reliability and extending operating lifetimes.
