Case to launch new D-Series excavators at Intermat 2015
New-generation four-model range offers higher productivity, improved comfort and enhanced safety
CASE Construction Equipment will be launching their new-generation D-Series crawler excavators at the Intermat 2015 exhibition, in Paris, from 20–25 April. The four new models – ranging from 25 tonnes to 40 tonnes operating weight – are all equipped with a Tier 4 Final (Stage IV) engine complemented by new features and upgrades that are said to raise the bar on the performance of CX excavators.
The new D-Series machines also feature Case’s proven intelligent hydraulic system for superior controllability and performance. In addition, new electronically controlled hydraulic pumps and larger main valves have been designed to further boost the new D-Series’ productivity, resulting in: cycle times up to 12% faster than the previous range; 6% higher breakout force than the C-Series; and increased lifting power.
The latest CX370D excavator features two larger pumps that its predecessor model, each delivering a maximum flow of 300 litres/min. According to Case, the D-Series excavators are more economical to run with around 8% more fuel savings than the previous generation, thanks to advanced engine technology and improved hydraulics.
The four new machines comply with Tier 4 Final emissions standards and utilize Case’s maintenance-free SCR solution, which requires no diesel particulate filter or regeneration, resulting in maximum uptime and lower operating costs.
The D-Series pressurized cab, which meets ROPS and FOPS Level II safety standards, has a cushioning system that ensures very low noise and vibration levels. It also provides ample legroom for the operator and features a large, widescreen monitor that displays performance data such as fuel consumption rates, maintenance information and machine diagnostics.
For security, the new-generation Case excavators come with the SiteWatch telematics system which allows the fleet manager to keep track of the machine and helps prevent misuse of the equipment.
