Wheel loader adds 10 percent increase in economy

Case Construction Equipment introduced the new 621F wheel loader model at the World of Concrete 2012 show. The new machine provides up to a 10-percent increase in fuel economy over the previous model, while delivering faster acceleration, quicker cycle times and higher travel speeds.

The new Case 621F wheel loader, like other models in the product line, evolved from the company’s E Series machines. To meet Tier 4 Interim emissions standards, the Case F Series wheel loaders use selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology, which results in lower temperatures in the exhaust system while optimizing combustion.

“Case wheel loaders already led the industry in fuel economy, but the addition of SCR technology in our Case F Series wheel loaders expands that leadership position,” said Tim O’Brien, brand marketing manager, Case Construction Equipment. “At the same time, we’ve added more power and responsiveness to provide contractors with the combination of performance and economy they need to compete successfully.”

The Case 621F wheel loader features a 6.7-liter Tier 4 Interim-certified engine that delivers up to 162 hp (121 kW). Classified as a 2.75 yd3 (2.1 m3) wheel loader, the Case 621F has an operating weight of 26,641 lb (12 084 kg).

“The Case 621F wheel loader delivers the best fuel economy and performance in its class size,” O’Brien said. “Like other F Series models, the 621F offers four programmable power modes to save fuel and increase available power. These easy-to-program power modes – Economy, Standard, Max and Auto – give operators flexibility in matching engine power to their jobs.”
