Construction Equipment magazine named the CASE Construction Equipment TV370 compact track loader to its list of Top 100 new products for 2018. The annual awards are selected by Construction Equipment editors as they take into consideration four key criteria related to new product introductions for the last year: “an advancement in technology, a new product line, offers significant improvements to existing products, or increases competition in its field.”
The CASE TV370 is a 74-horsepower compact track loader that combines a maintenance-free Tier 4 Final emissions solution with the strength and reach of a large-frame CTL. The TV370 provides a 3,700-pound rated operating capacity (50 percent tipping weight) and a vertical-lift design that makes it ideal for loading trucks, and lifting and placing heavier palletized materials.
The TV370 is ideally suited for landscaping, utility, agricultural and rental applications where operators value lift capacity and strength, but may not require higher horsepower to run high-volume production attachments. The machine provides excellent auxiliary hydraulics for traditional attachment use in standard (24.2 gallons per minute (gpm) at 100 percent efficiency) and optional high-flow (37.6 gpm at 100 percent efficiency) hydraulic setups.
Additional performance/operating highlights include an 8,776-pound bucket breakout force, and a 10-foot, 11-inch hinge pin height. At 6-foot, 4-inches wide over the tracks, and on standard 17.7-inch wide tracks, the TV370 provides excellent stability and excellent low ground pressure for operating on varied terrain and sensitive ground.
The TV370 offers one of the widest cabs in the industry, and the lowest entry threshold for easy access and greater visibility down to the bucket/attachment. The cab-forward design combines with ultra-narrow wire side screens to provide best-in-class 360-degree visibility and excellent site lines down to the bucket edge/curb lines. A large, rounded rear window delivers excellent rear visibility. Standard heavy-duty front and side lights further improve visibility.
The new CTL meets Tier 4 Final emissions standards through a DOC-only FPT engine that requires no additional fluids or intensive maintenance activities. Operators can easily access the engine, filters, fill points, and all other primary service points through a single point of access. It also offers an easy-tilt cab for convenient access to the drivetrain compartment.
