On the Case at RWM
Latest machines on display include Case 821F wheel loader and WX240 wheeled materials handler
FEATURING Case’s Tier 4 Interim technology, the 812F wheel loader boasts 12% higher lift capacity and 17% more breakout force than the previous generation, yet delivers lower emissions and up to a 10% fuel saving.
With a rated output of 206hp (154kW), the loader’s 6.7-litre engine uses Selective Catalytic Reduction technology to meet Tier 4 Interim emissions standards, while delivering increased output and performance. The machine also has the proven Case Cooling Module design, putting all radiators and cooling cores at the centre of the machine, away from the dust and debris that can be thrown up at the rear of the machine.
By positioning the engine at the rear of the chassis there is less requirement for counterweight, leading to an increase in breakout and lifting forces at the front end. Front and rear limited slip differentials, with the option of a front locking differential, ensure maximum traction into the pile, delivering improved bucket fill and faster cycle times.
An optional five-speed transmission with lock-up torque converter contributes to greater driveline efficiency and lower fuel consumption in load and carry operations. In addition, the loader at the show has been specially modified by dealers Warwick Ward to include red and white chevrons on the counterweight, a reversing alarm and a waste-handling bucket.
The WX240 machine is a dedicated waste-handling model based on a wheeled excavator chassis. The materials handler has a hydraulically raised cab, offering a 5.6m working height to allow operators to see into crushers and high-sided transport. Customers can also order the machine with a fixed height cab at either 8mm or 1,300mm.
A torsion-free undercarriage on the WX240 provides maximum support to the stabilizers, delivering a stable working platform in all operating conditions. The WX240 is equipped with a 6.8m boom and a 5.2m dipper, providing a maximum working height of 13m and maximum reach of 11.8m.
The machine on demonstration at RWM will be equipped with a five-tine waste grab, although it can be supplied with a wide range of attachments to suit various industry sectors and materials.
