Case introduces OEM universal machine control compatibility kit for dozers
Case Construction Equipment has developed a universal machine control option for its production class M Series dozers (1150M, 1650M and 2050M) that makes each machine factory compatible with all major suppliers of machine control technology, including Topcon, Trimble and Case precision partner Leica Geosystems, within a single "universal machine control" option.
Case universal machine control provides a universal harness for blade guidance systems, universal machine brackets and mounts, and universal jumpers to integrate any industry solution into each dozer. This allows Case dozers to be deployed, straight from the dealer, into any fleet-wide precision or machine control solution an owner/operator/contractor may deploy on their worksites. It also helps improve retained and resale value, as that Case dozer will be compatible with any solution during resale into its 2nd or 3rd operational lifespan.
It also provides customers the peace of mind and flexibility to prepare their dozer for retrofit of precision solutions after the purchase, without having to change mounting points or wiring harnesses on the dozer depending on the system provider of their choice.
Case is dedicated to customers success by providing additional help with the adoption of precision with a limited-time offer of a free SiteControl CoPilot system, powered by Leica Geosystems, with the purchase of a universal machine control-equipped dozer with Leica-ready option (when purchased through a Case dealer). CoPilot bridges the gap between automatic and indicate-only systems, and offers a cost-effective entry into 2D and 3D machine control technology.

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.
