Case upgrade skid-steer and compact tracked loader line-up
New machines offer more engine and hydraulic power, increased productivity and reduced emissions
CASE Construction Equipment have updated their skid-steer loader and compact tracked loader ranges to offer more engine and hydraulic power, best in class breakout forces, increased productivity and lower emissions, while maintaining high levels of cab space and all-round visibility over a broader spread of machines.
The 10 compact models – seven skid steers and three tracked loaders – deliver improved efficiency through the use of environmentally-friendly Tier 4 engine solutions, providing customers with increased power and torque and reduced operating costs.
Case are offering an upgraded small-frame model, the SR160, to replace the SR150, one of the company’s best-sellers. The new model has a larger and cleaner engine delivering up to 15% more power, 27% more torque and a 19% increase in hydraulic flow. The 60hp turbocharged Tier 4 Final engine has been installed without any impact on the machine’s compact dimensions.
The smallest SR130 is now powered by a 2.2-litre 49hp Tier 4 Interim engine, that uses internal cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) without the need of additional particulate filters.
The mid-range SV185 and SR175 skid-steers are powered by Tier 4F engines delivering 60hp and 67hp respectively. However through the use of a turbocharger and high-powered common-rail fuel-injection with electronic control, there is no requirement for regeneration on these engines. A maintenance-free diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) system ensures compliance with Tier 4F.
Similarly, the SR200 and TR270 machines that use a 74hp turbocharged engine can meet Tier 4i without regeneration. The most powerful SR250, SV300, TR320 and TV380 models all use a 90hp turbocharged engine with multiple-injection high-pressure common rail, plus an electronically controlled wastegate that delivers superior pressure stability within the turbocharger. Fuel injection, exhaust gas recirculation and DPF after-treatment are managed by an efficient control module, to allow this engine to meet the Tier 4i emissions standards.
The extended Case line-up now includes five radial-lift skid-steers (SR), two radial-lift tracked loaders (TR), two vertical-lift skid-steers (SV) and one vertical-lift tracked machine (TV), with operating weights for the skid-steers ranging from 2,300kg to 3,765kg, and from 3,720kg to 4,625kg for the tracked loaders. The compact machines deliver rated operating capacities (50%) from 590kg to 1,723kg, and tipping loads from 1,179kg to 3,447kg.
All models benefit from an operator’s cab that is 25% wider than on previous generation machines, while a wide door, repositioned grab handles and a lower threshold all contribute to easier entry and exit from the cab. Customers can choose between standard mechanical controls or electro-hydraulic servo levers.
The Case skid-steer loader and compact tracked loader ranges can be ordered with a wide range of attachments, from wheeled excavators and compactors, to planers, broom buckets and cement mixers, along with an optional hydraulic coupler.
All Case skid-steers and tracked loaders are prepared for Case SiteWatch – a telematic system that automatically sends machine data to the Case Telematics web portal, allowing the customer to monitor performance, fuel consumption and hours worked, to provide planned preventative maintenance.
