1110EX Soil Compactor: Designed for heavy and demanding applications, the CASE 1110EX is equally at home in road and building construction jobsites, as in mining operations. It features the proven S8000 engine developed by FPT Industrial, which has recently been upgraded to deliver more performance with a power increase of 110 hp and a massive 430 Nm of torque. The turbocharged engine delivers power with excellent fuel economy. The 1110EX is equipped with a class leading 32mm thick drum, which provides a higher weight and robustness which guarantees maximum productivity and reliability. The 1110EX delivers an outstanding compaction applied force of 33 375 kgf: this reduces the number of compaction passes, in turn reducing fuel cost and work hours. The EX-Series compactor delivers an effective performance on every surface with its two configurations: the CASE 1110EX-D with drum drive and increased traction is ideal for slopes and landfills, while the CASE 1110EX-PD featuring drum drive and clamp-on pad foot is the perfect solution for compacting more cohesive materials such as clay and silt
V-Series Backhoe Loader: The newly launched 570V and 570SV backhoe loaders feature a brand-new cab, which is one of the largest in their class. The ROPS/FOPS cab equipped with air conditioning (optional) and best-in-class internal storage capacity raises operator comfort and ergonomics to a new level, while retaining the excellent performance, reliability and versatility of the range. The range includes models with power of 86hp and 97hp, that can be equipped with either 2WD or 4WD axles. Both machines are fitted with a four-speed Power Shuttle transmission that delivers great speed and drive power suitable for any worksite. Adding versatility to the mix, the backhoe loader can have either a fixed or extendable dipper arm, increasing digging reach and depth. Up front both machines are equipped with a straight loader arm providing great breakout force and excellent dump height. All these features combined with a full range of general and multipurpose buckets and forks, make the new 570V and 570SV the tools of choice.
CX220C LC HD Crawler Excavator: The CX220C LC HD has been designed with stronger boom and arms and undercarriage structures, with increased thickness to make it suitable for the harshest application. The machine is equipped with a 6-cylinder 6.7-liter engine which delivers outstanding torque that ensures maximum power with the best fuel efficiency. This electronic engine from FPT is the perfect match with the CASE Intelligent Hydraulic System that features 5 automatic energy saving functions that further improve machine efficiency. These functions constantly adjust the engine rpm and the hydraulic pump displacement to match the actual power requirement at any time. The powerful and reliable industrial engine ensures high productivity with low fuel consumption making the machine suitable for stone quarry, general and road construction, earthworks and mining applications.
