Case adds to ranges
By Lindsay Gale17 July 2008
According to the company, Case’s three new CX B series machines deliver improved fuel efficiency and productivity, in addition to improved operator comfort and ease of maintenance. All three make use of the company’s electronically controlled common rail Tier III certified 7.8 litre engine that delivers from 202 kW (271 hp) to 345 kW (463 hp).
The CX350B weighs in at 35.8 tonnes and has a maximum dig depth of 7.3 m (24 ft), the CX470B weighs 47 tonnes with a dig depth of 7.7 m (25.3 ft) and the CX700B weighs 69.5 tonnes with a dig depth of 8.4 m (27.6 ft).
Also new is the 570M XT Series 3 loader/tool carrier that has been re-engined with a new Tier III case turbocharged diesel that provides 8 % greater power than the previous series at 59 kW (79 hp). This new machine features a single lever loader control that has been ergonomically designed for ease of use as well as a easily accessible push button differential lock and transmission declutch. It also features automatic bucket self-levelling to minimise spillage during loader raise and Ride Control, available as an option that cushions the loader arms to prevent spillage when full loads are carried over rough terrain.Case has also re-engined three of its E Series wheel loaders (the 21E, 121E and 321E) to provide 40.3 to 61.1 kW (54 to 82 hp) power levels. In addition, the new engines feature a new cooling package that provides improved service access as well as greater air flow across the coolers to increase cooling efficiency, reduce fluid breakdown and extend component life.
