    Company to demonstrate position as a global leader with wide range of equipment exhibits

    CASE Construction Equipment will demonstrate their position as a global leader in the construction machinery market at Bauma 2013, the world’s largest equipment exhibition. With a wide range of models on show, Case are building on their leadership in low-emission, fuel-efficient yet powerful equipment for the construction, industrial and quarrying sectors.

    From compact minis and skid-steer loaders to heavy earthmoving excavators, wheel loaders and a new range of dozers, the Case Construction Equipment line-up will deliver an extensive selection of machines designed to meet the needs of customers across the world.

    Case will introduce a new three-model range of M-Series dozers at the show in Munich. This expanded line-up includes dozers with operating weights of 13-20 tonnes, each delivering best-in-class drawbar pull, reduced exhaust and noise emissions and advanced automated control systems for increased productivity. The M-Series dozers use highly-efficient hydrostatic transmissions to deliver a class-leading drawbar pull, of 213.5kN for the 1150M, 311kN for the 1650M and 374kN for the 2050M.

    The Case M-Series dozers are the only machines of their type to be powered exclusively by best-in-class fuel-efficient Tier 4 Interim FPT engines. Case dozers use the proven Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to achieve lower emissions with improved fuel consumption. The machines boast a 9-16% increase in power, yet deliver a more than 10% fuel saving, along with a 19% increase in productive efficiency.

    Case is once again taking the lead in emissions with the launch of two Tier 4 Final midi-excavators. The new machines develop 9% more hydraulic power thanks to high flow hydraulic pumps. Cycle times are reduced and digging forces increased by up to 3%. The machines benefit from a 7% wider cab that uses the same monitor and operator interface as the larger CX C-Series of crawler excavators.

    The short radius CX75 SR and the conventional CX80C use cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR), and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to meet the stringent exhaust standards. There is no requirement for a costly diesel particulate filter or for fuel-consuming regeneration.

    The Case 621F wheel loader (pictured) will make its first appearance at a European show in April. The 12.2-tonne machine is powered by a second-generation common-rail Tier 4 Interim engine, benefitting from the use of fuel-saving SCR technology. Driving through a proven ZF auto Powershift transmission and heavy-duty axles, the 621F is equipped with a 100% locking front differential for maximum traction and reduced tyre wear.

    As with larger F-Series models, the 621F has a cooling pack directly behind the operator’s cab, moving the engine to the rear of the machine to reduce counterweight. Cooling radiators form a cube behind the cab around the cooling fan, ensuring that clean air is blown through each radiator. This increased cooling efficiency results in longer coolant life and reduced ownership costs for the customer.
