CASE Construction Equipment has shown an expanded mini excavator offering at CNH Industrial's Capital Markets Day. The showcase included the first look at the CASE CX15 EV (electric vehicle), an electric mini excavator for the North American market in 2023.

The CASE CX15 EV is a 2,900-pound mini excavator powered by a 16 kW electric motor – it features retractable tracks that get machine width down to about 31 inches for going through doors and working in confined spaces. It can also work very close to structures and obstacles with a minimum swing radius design. The 21.5 kWh lithium-ion battery is charged either by the 110V/220V on-board charger, or via an external rapid charger that can charge the machine typically within 90 minutes. Depending on the type of work, the CASE CX15 EV will provide enough power to work through a full eight-hour day. A load-sensing hydraulic system delivers ideal performance.        

"From reduced emissions to noise reduction and lower lifetime fuel and maintenance costs, the CASE CX15 EV will be a powerful, efficient and sustainable addition to our mini excavator lineup," says Brad Stemper, head of construction equipment product management North America at CASE. "This machine is the next step in our electrification journey – and we are committed to bringing the industry a complementary portfolio of diesel and electric equipment to meet the needs of the broadest range of applications and operations."
