Industrial design students reimagine the Case backhoe

CNH Industrial has collaborated with students at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California, to develop new designs for Case Construction Equipment.

This CNH Industrial Behind the Wheel webisode is a behind-the-scenes look at the students' creative process in the development of new designs.

ArtCenter students were challenged to re-imagine the Case Loader Backhoe. They were asked to develop an improved Loader Backhoe or a comparable machine that does not exist today but can perform specific functions (e.g. dig, move dirt/material, grading, dozing) in a more efficient, convenient and comfortable way to improve the overall operator experience. A fundamental part of this challenge was to transform the interior cab into a mobile workspace. Students also needed to take safety considerations into account given that construction equipment is often used in built-up areas.
The design ideas included the latest trends impacting modern construction equipment, such as smart technologies, alternative fuels/energy and semi-autonomous operations.

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.     

When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
