Case unveil line up for Plantworx 2013
Case Construction Equipment will showcase a selection of their latest machines, which offer low-emission and fuel-efficient technology, at the inaugural Plantworx exhibition which takes place from 14 to 16 May.
The extensive line up will include machines making their first UK appearance - the CX80C Tier 4 Final midi excavator and the WX188 wheeled excavator. Completing the display will be the 821F series wheel loader, together with models from the C-series crawler excavator, and T-series backhoe loader range.
Case have also chosen Plantworx as the venue to host their UK heat of this year’s European Rodeo challenge, where the best operators from across Europe will compete for a place in the final, which takes place in Paris later in the year.
Case say their new CX80C and CX75C SR midi crawler excavators are suitable for urban construction sites because of their low emissions, performance and reduced dimensions. New high-flow hydraulic pumps allow the new models to deliver 9% more hydraulic power. Cycle times are reduced and digging forces increased by up to 3%. 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.
Another Case machine making its UK debut is the WX188 wheeled excavator. This is one of three new-generation wheeled excavators, which includes the WX148 and WX168, designed to deliver maximum productivity and precision. The extra-powerful hydraulics are managed by Case’s Intelligent Hydraulic System (CIHS) which offers a single CPU for improved controllability and simplified diagnostics.
The Case C-series crawler excavator range will also be represented at the exhibition, with the CX210B and CX130C, together with the short-radius CX145C SR, and CX235C. All of these models benefit from new low-emission Tier 4 Interim engines that offer increased efficiency and fuel savings through the use of CIHS, incorporating five electronically managed energy-saving systems.
Completing the heavy line up display is the 821F series wheeled loader, together with the 580ST and 590ST tractor backhoes, known globally as the ‘Construction King’ range. All of these machines deliver a combination of powerful performance and low operating costs. The 821F is equipped with a Tier 4 Interim engine and uses selective catalytic reduction. The 580ST and the 590ST are both powered by Tier 4 Interim, 3.4-litre turbocharged engines, and also incorporate CEGR.
