Case announce line-up for ScotPlant 2014
Case Construction Equipment together with Hodge Plant, their newly appointed dealers in Scotland, will be presenting a range of machines at this year’s ScotPlant exhibition, which takes place on the 25-26 April .
Designed for every sector of the construction, aggregates, quarrying and waste-handling and recycling sectors, Case machines are renowned for being engineered to the highest standards. With 90% of all models now benefiting from Tier 4 interim engines, and the introduction of fuel-saving SCR technology, the company continues to maintain its global position as manufacturers of intelligently designed machines.
The heavy range line-up will include crawler excavators, wheel loaders, wheeled excavators, together with Case’s first Tier 4 final, crawler midi excavators. The compact range display will comprise skid-steer loaders, mini excavators plus a backhoe loader.
As well as the machines on show, Case will be hosting the first UK round of their popular Case Rodeo challenge. Operators are invited to take part in a series of tasks designed to test their skill and speed. The winners will then go forward to take part in the European final, which will be held in Paris, later in the year.
Heavy line range
At ScotPlant there will be a comprehensive display of Case heavy line equipment, which they say offers customers productive, reliable, high-performance and fuel-efficient machines.
The line-up will include the 621FXT and 821F wheel loaders, which are equipped with Tier 4 Interim engines and benefit from fuel saving selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology. These fast and productive machines feature low operating costs making them suitable for a wide range of applications. Alongside will be the WX148 wheeled excavator, which has an exclusive three-pump hydraulic system to deliver increased performance and control.
The Case C-series crawler excavator range will be represented at the exhibition, with the CX210C long-reach and the CX350C models. These machines also benefit from Tier 4 Interim engines that offer increased efficiency and fuel saving benefits through the use of the Case Intelligent Hydraulic System (CIHS), incorporating five electronically managed energy-saving systems.
The company’s first Tier 4 final midi excavators, the CX75C SR and CX80C SR models will be part of the line-up. The versatility this range offers makes them suitable for urban construction sites, due to their leading emissions, performance and reduced dimensions. To ensure they meet the stringent exhaust standards they use cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR), and a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC). This eliminates the need for a costly diesel particulate filter or for fuel-consuming regeneration
Case say their compact range of machines deliver a combination of strong performance, safety and complete controllability.
There will be four skid-steer models on display - the SR150, SR175 and SR200 radial lift models, together with the SV200, which has a vertical lift arm layout. These machines offer among the highest engine outputs on the market, with the SR200 rated capacity of 905kg with a tipping load of 1,814kg. The power stance chassis rides on a 21% longer wheelbase to deliver greater stability and with best-in-class serviceability and superior operator comfort, Case say the compact loaders deliver high productivity with maximum utilization.
The mini excavator line-up includes the zero-swing CX26B, CX30B, CX50B models, which are suited for working in confined spaces. Reliable engines and powerful hydraulics ensure stability and, because they are equipped with Case heavy-crawler excavator hydraulic technology, the high hydraulic power allows the use of larger buckets and operations are smoother under heavy loads. Safety features are fitted as standard with both the cab and canopy complying with FOPS, ROPS and TOPS safety regulations.
Completing the compact line-up display is the 590ST backhoe loader, known as the ‘Construction King,’ which is ST powered by saTier 4 Interim, 3.4-litre turbocharged engine and incorporates cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR).
Visitors will be able to meet representatives from Hodge Plant, Case’s recently appointed dealers in Scotland. There will also be experts from the Case team on-hand to provide information and advice on Case’s new SiteWatch telematics systems, as well as the latest finance packages, and servicing and maintenance plans.
