CASE Construction Equipment has added new models across a range of its product lines, targeting construction and utility fleets that are facing labour shortages and tighter job sites. New models of backhoe loader, wheel loader, and mini excavator are joined by upgrades to compact wheel loaders.

"Labour shortages continue to shrink the workforce, while at the same time, companies are challenged to work more productively and more profitably," says Terry Dolan, vice president - North America, CASE Construction Equipment. "We geared our latest round of CASE innovations toward helping crews maneuver these challenges more effectively and efficiently than ever before."

Backhoe loaders offer versatile side-shift capabilities

CASE introduced the Construction King and Utility Plus backhoe loaders to complement the N Series backhoes in 2023, and are now adding three more models to the mix. Joining the 580SV and Utility Plus centre-pivot models are a 580SV side-shift and the larger 695SV in centre-pivot and side-shift versions.

The 580SV is a 97-horsepower machine while the 695SV has 110 horsepower. Both machines carry over popular features from the N Series, such as ProControl swing dampening, auto ride control, and ECO modes for fuel savings. Maneuverability has also been upgraded.

The 580SV side shift features a tool carrier design to improve stability and material retention. The side-shift configuration and narrow width make it productive in confined spaces. The 695SV models feature tool carrier loader arms, allowing them to do double-duty as a wheel loader. Both models have 4-wheel-drive, 4-wheel steer, and four equal-sized tires, as well as a PowerShift transmission.

All the new backhoes are compatible with numerous attachments, offering crews a larger toolkit for increased productivity, speed, and accuracy.

Mini excavator features improved power for bigger jobs

A mini excavator for larger jobs, the CASE CX50D is a 5-metric-ton machine with a compact design that offers lifting and digging capacity for fast productivity.

An automotive-style cab allows operators to work longer and more comfortably, thanks to features like auto climate control with heat and AC, Bluetooth radio, a five-way adjustable seat, and a customizable LCD screen providing important data on the machine and attachments.

Multifunctional hydraulics are standard on the CX50D, as is a second auxiliary circuit, making it capable of handling a range of specialized attachments. A third auxiliary circuit is optional, enabling advanced attachments like tilt rotators and grapples - and yet another dedicated auxiliary circuit is available for power mulchers. An optional Object Handling Kit includes check valves on the boom and arm to improve safety and efficiency in material handling operations.

High breakout force and lifting capacity power full-sized wheel loader

The new CASE 651G has a breakout force of nearly 24,000 pounds and lifting capacity of more than 16,100 pounds for use in tougher jobs. The machine features a larger hydraulic pump for increased cycle times, a curved bucket for better material retention, and a higher hinge pin for better dumping clearance.

Intuitive electrohydraulic controls allow the operator to independently set boom and bucket responsiveness to smooth, moderate, or aggressive. An integrated onboard scale allows weighing of loads and material tracking. A variety of axle options are available to match job site conditions for optimal traction.

A roomy cab features AC and heat, heated seats, Bluetooth radio, and phone connectivity, and a rear sloping hood and optional backup camera make it easier to spot potential hazards.

Updated compact wheel loaders have improved visibility and control

The CASE F Series compact wheel loaders help crews in confined job sites with features such as an elevated driving position, curved glass in the cab, and four-corner strobe lights to ensure maximum visibility on the job site. New Z-bar linkage upgrades improve breakout force. The CASE 21F, 121F, 221F, and 321F models also feature Tier 4 Final emissions solutions that are maintenance-free, eliminating regeneration and diesel particulate filters.

Parallel lift on the CASE 21F and 121F keeps loads stable and allows for better visibility of the coupler during attachment changeouts. The 221F and 321F combine auxiliary high-flow hydraulics and a creep speed mode to provide maximum hydraulic flow at constant speeds for smoother operation of attachments like brooms and snowblowers. Improved LCD screens with simplified controls make operation easier.

Rough-terrain forklifts get new enclosed cab

H Series rough-terrain forklifts handle heavy loads in off-road environments. A new factory-installed enclosed cab adds comfort for operators. Wide doors secure fully open for better communication with ground crew and offer better airflow. An overhead roof window gives better visibility for overhead loads.

These forklifts have a zero-tail swing design for tight job sites, and can drive from job to job at up to 24 mph. They are also customizable for a range of load weights and lift heights.
