Case releases five new skid-steer and tracked loaders
More variety has been added to the Case Construction Equipment range of skid steer loader and compact track loaders with the addition of four new models and the upgrading of another to meet Tier 4 Final emissions standards, though it's unsure whether these models will come to Australia.
Introduced at the Intermat 2015 construction and materials show in Paris, the new loaders feature higher torque and breakout force — resulting in faster cycle times — and high-flow hydraulic configurations for faster moving attachments.
As an example, Case says, the standard auxiliary circuit on the SR210 (which replaces the SR200) delivers 8 percent more flow, or 92 litres per minute, while the high-flow configuration pumps out 6 percent more, or 123 litres per minute.
All five models are driven by 3.4-litre turbo engines and a maintenance-free Tier 4 Final solution developed by FPT Industrial. This emissions-reducing technology is said to deliver up to 10 percent more power without the use of a particulate filter or additional fluids. It also has low fuel consumption.
"Three models are entirely new to the line-up, which now is able to meet a wider variety of customer requirements," Case reports.
"The SR240 is a large-frame skid-steer loader that excels in its torque and breakout force ratings," it says. "This makes it ideal for customers who look for a high level of performance in demanding digging and pushing applications."
The SV280, on the other hand, is a new vertical-lift skid-steer loader which "delivers the best-in-class dump height of 2,630 mm, making it the best choice for lift-and-carry applications".
The third all-new model is the TR310 radial-lift compact track loader, which has powerful bucket breakout force and operating capacity.
"It comes with wider, 400 mm tracks that ensure more flotation, stability and traction," Case says. "These features make it ideal for landscaping, residential construction and agricultural applications."
The Case range now consists of nine skid steer loaders and four compact track loaders.
Highlighted features of the range are the stability that derives from the long wheelbase and the optimised weight distribution — 30 percent on the front and 70 percent on the rear — plus an emphasis on operator comfort.
As we said above, Australian availability of the new models is yet to be confirmed.
