CASE 621F and 721F wheel loaders named Asphalt Contractor Top 30 Editor's Choice Award Winners.
CASE Construction Equipment’s 621F and 721F wheel loaders were recognized as part of the 2016 Asphalt Contractor Top 30 Editor’s Choice Awards. The awards were chosen by the Asphalt Contractor editorial staff for meeting a set of criteria including longevity and consistency in the market, dependability, uniqueness and innovation. The staff also factored in how much interest the products received in their Buyer’s Guide.
“Equipment is the lifeblood of our readers’ businesses ‒ the right equipment choices can mean the difference between a profit or a loss on a project,” says Amy Schwandt, Asphalt Contractor group publisher.
Asphalt Contractor editor, Lisa Cleaver, continued, “On today’s road building projects, asphalt contractors need to possess every advantage they can. Having the best equipment in their fleets and tools in their toolboxes make them more competitive. This year’s Top 30 Editor’s Choice Awards reflect those products that have the ability to add profits and increase productivity. The list also includes some exciting new introductions, which offer the latest innovations. To honor those products which achieve these ideals, we offer this year’s Top 30 Editor’s Choice Awards.”
The 621F and 721F wheel loaders meet Tier 4 Final emissions standards with a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) solution that treats emissions separately with Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) and does not require the engine to re-circulate exhaust gas. This improves fuel efficiency (up to 20 percent greater than previous solutions), lowers exhaust temperatures, and provides excellent throttle response and simplified maintenance without sacrificing power. The 621F and 721F wheel loaders produce 162 and 179 net rated horsepower (121 and 133 kW), respectively, and feature powerful and quick hydraulics and four programmable power modes that allow users to match the machine output to available engine power.
