CASE is reviving a piece of its history while adding brand-new models of backhoe loaders to its North American offerings. Five models will be released, several under the classic "Construction King" name, and all expanding on CASE's existing backhoe lines.

CASE will offer two models immediately: the Utility Plus and the CASE 580SV Construction King centre pivot. Three more will follow later in 2023: the 580SV Construction King side shift, and two CASE 695SV Construction King models, one with centre pivot and one with side shift.

The all-new CASE Utility Plus delivers full-sized backhoe performance in an efficient platform that's easy to own, easy to maintain, and easy on the bottom line. This new 74 horsepower machine delivers a big cab with excellent sightlines to all work areas, ease of service with a maintenance-free emissions system (no DPF and no DEF), and easy controls (including a choice of pilot or mechanical). Mechanical controls are offered for the more experienced operators who like that traditional backhoe "feel," while pilot controls are available for rental businesses and contractors with less-experienced operators.

"You could call this an entry-level machine — but it performs and delivers options like a full-sized backhoe," said George MacIntyre, product manager, CASE Construction Equipment. "We've built it so that you can focus on simplicity, ideal for rental applications and businesses where this isn't a daily production tool, but also committed to options such as the Extendahoe and attachment performance via one-way auxiliary hydraulics on the dipper for businesses that want to use this machine for more. It's built to be versatile and allow equipment owners to build up from a simple base model."

The all-new CASE 580SV Construction King brings a tool carrier-style front end back to the CASE backhoe line in North America, ideal for businesses who use the loader end of their backhoe as a primary material handler - loading and unloading pallets or moving pipe and other bundled material around the yard. Adding a 4-in-1 bucket, a 6-in-1 bucket, or any attachments available for CASE backhoes turns this into a robust multi-purpose job site solution, and a hydraulic quick coupler makes it easy.

The new centre pivot model is immediately available to the North American market, and CASE will be rolling out a side-shift model later in 2023. It will deliver even greater job site flexibility and performance in confined spaces. The CASE 580SV Construction King side shift will feature in-line vertical stabilizers for offset digging and working in applications where operators have to get right up against structures or take up less space (such as in roadside utility work).
