New Holland Construction Adds C234 to Compact Track Loader Line-up
All-new model includes improved CTL track carrier design and heavy-duty steel features
New Holland is enhancing its New Holland Skid Steer and Compact Track Loader line-ups with the launch of its C234 compact track loader. The new C234 features a 90 HP engine, radial lift geometry, 17.7 inch tracks to provide low ground pressure of 4.4 psi, and one of the widest cabs in the industry.
“This machine is your “go-to” basement or in-ground pool digging machine, a rental yard ‘must-have,’ and the ultimate machine for stump grinding, rock saws, and cold planers,” said Bradley Wenger, Construction Equipment Marketing Specialist at New Holland North America. “The new C234 is ready for your toughest job sites; it comes packed with a ton of power and is built heavy-duty all around.”
The C234 works even harder on the jobsite for you, with features including the low-profile undercarriage design, introduced in February 2016, proven to hold up under intense testing to deliver longer carrier life. The improved yoke-to-frame engagement produces less noise with the potential for reduced operator fatigue and results in overall improved track alignment and easier cleanout due to the increased area between the tracks.
Other features include a 3,400-lb rated operating capacity at 50-percent tipping load, and strong bucket tip and lift breakout forces of 8,700 lbs. Made for heavy-duty construction, the C234 is built with heavy-duty steel rear door and hood, along with new steel front work lights with side lamps for extra visibility during night-time operation. The new steel front work lights with side lamps are now available on all of New Holland’s skid steer and compact track loader models.

The all-new CASE TR340B compact track loader — operating at 90 horsepower with a 3,400-pound rated operating capacity — is the most powerful radial-lift CTL in the CASE lineup. Its all-new 8-inch LCD display improves on industry-leading CASE visibility with a new backup camera that is viewable in both forward and reverse operation. The display also showcases critical operating information and "trip" details. All-new electro-hydraulic controls, managed through the display, make it easier than ever for operators to dial CASE CTLs into specific application demands. All new cab controls and joysticks make the new TR340B easy to own and operate.
Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
