Cycle times = speed, power and capacity. The 1021G is built for high capacity production environments where truck loading, material carrying and stockpiling is required. Best-in-class breakout force and strong, powerful load sensing hydraulics improve productivity while also ensuring the machine only works as hard as it needs to, which ultimately saves on fuel. Automatic bucket control features like “return-to-dig,” “return-to-travel” and “height control” simplify operation while approaching trucks/hoppers and transitioning back to travel, ultimately shortening the cycle. Optional heavy-duty axles with auto-locking front differential and, of the four selectable operating modes, working in MAX achieves fast and aggressive operation for the most demanding of applications. Optional Ride Control improves material retention in long haul applications, minimizing spilling and related cleanup. And the 1021G features an SCR aftertreatment system with no diesel particulate filter (DPF) or related downtime for regeneration, ensuring optimal uptime.
A critical factor in lowering total cost of ownership (TCO) in production environments is the ability to perform more work (more cubic yards) at a lower cost factor (time/expenses). The G Series features an electro-hydraulic, load sensing hydraulic system that allows for improved functionality, and precise bucket and loader functions that produce less heat, require less fuel, and provide speed and control options ideal for high-capacity work. The emissions solution, Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR), treats exhaust as an aftertreatment instead of recirculating it and burning it via regeneration in a DPF. This lowers total fuel use, helps keep engine exhaust temperatures down, and ultimately, allows for a more powerful/consistent use of the engine compared to other solutions. ECO mode is also available and can help further reduce fuel use in production environments.
Comfort and Visibility
Long shifts. Repetitive cycles. Moving trucks, equipment and people. The cab and operating environment of the G Series have been completely re-engineered to provide optimal operator performance, ergonomics and engagement with both the controls and the surroundings. The cab design accommodates the majority of all equipment operators. A new 8" LCD monitor offers simple controls and greater insight of loader functions and activities. The latest in electro-hydraulic controls, numerous seat and adjustability options, and an all-new membrane keypad further simplify operation and training. A new, one-piece rounded windshield and optimally placed mirrors, along with a rearview camera that feeds the new monitor, ensures full 360° visibility. An entirely new HVAC system plus an optional Bluetooth radio ensures operators stay comfortable and engaged throughout long shifts.
The CASE Cooling Cube on the 1021G provides direct access to fresh air for each cooler – nothing is stacked – and features a reversible fan and easy access for cleaning. G Series wheel loaders feature an electric rear hood lift that allows for easy access to the engine compartment for excellent ground-line serviceability – all major regular service points can be accessed from ground level. Additionally, CASE ProCare - which comes standard - ensures all owning and operating costs for the first three years of ownership are more predictable while also providing a three-year subscription to CASE SiteWatch telematics to help fleet managers better monitor loader health and performance and ensure optimal uptime/utilization.
