New products and solutions from CASE Construction Equipment that are ready to help rental companies succeed will be on display at The ARA Show.

CASE has launched more than 30 new machines in the past year, and it will show many of those models and product lines, including backhoe loaders, mini excavators, mini track loaders, small articulated loaders, and more. Equipment including the award-winning Utility Plus backhoe loader will be on display for the rental market, along with a wide range of new attachments.

"The equipment rental industry is an extremely competitive space, and to keep ahead, rental businesses need versatile equipment and strong dealer support that can deliver a bigger return on their investments," said Terry Dolan, vice president, North America, CASE Construction Equipment. "That's why CASE has revamped its lineup with new swift, smart, smooth machines that pack more punch for the price, and we're backing those machines with unmatched support across North America."

CASE has added telematics throughout its model lineup on nearly all machines, with five years of coverage at no cost to the customer, allowing rental businesses to validate hours of use and build timely preventive maintenance into their schedules.

The Utility Plus backhoe loader will be a highlight of the show for CASE, delivering full-sized backhoe performance in a flexible, efficient platform that is easy to own, easy to maintain, and easy on the bottom line. The 74-horsepower machine is designed for landscaping, agriculture, general construction, utility work, and more. Its design focuses on simplicity, while also offering options such as the Extendahoe, and attachment performance via one-way auxiliary hydraulics, allowing rental businesses build up from a simple base model to a machine that does more.

A roomy cab with excellent sight lines to all work areas, extreme ease of service with a maintenance-free emissions system (no DPF or DEF), and easy controls are all features of the Utility Plus. Mechanical and pilot controls are also available to accommodate varying operator preferences.

The telescopic SL12 TR small articulated loader will make its first ARA Show appearance. Part of a brand-new product line, the SL12 TR features an extra-long reach for those customers who need to load trucks or move material in hard-to-reach places. It is flexible but powerful, and thanks to its articulated steering minimizes turf damage. Its versatility is maximized through attachment flexibility, with more than 110 CASE attachments already available.

The TL100 stand-on mini track loader is also making its first visit to The ARA Show. More than 40 attachments are available for this small, easy-to-transport machine, which offers rental businesses a platform for minimizing manual work at a lower total cost of ownership. It has a rated operating capacity of 1,000 pounds, and can handle the work of multiple labourers on jobs like digging, earthmoving, setting fence posts, grappling brush, and grading.

Other show highlights include new operator-friendly mini excavators, including an all-electric model, the popular B Series compact track loader models, and a high-performance rough-terrain forklift with a brand-new option for a factory designed, built, and installed cab. A range of attachments will also be on display, including buckets, hydraulic compactors, augers, and root grapples.
