Case relaunches loader line
By Jenny Lescohier06 February 2020
Case Construction Equipment relaunched its entire line of compact track loaders (CTLs) and skid steers with the introduction of its B Series at World of Concrete 2020 in Las Vegas, NV in the US.
The series includes five CTLs and eight skid steers spanning radial and vertical lift patterns, as well as numerous horsepower and size classes.
Eric Zieser, global product manager with Case CE, told members of the press B Series machines feature an exclusive eight-inch LCD multi-function display that includes a backup camera visible in a split screen display with machine data. The camera is operational in both forward and reverse andis meant to enhance visibility.
The display comes with all electro-hydraulic models and can be added to mechanical configurations for use with the backup camera and operational displays (but without the electro-hydraulic control capabilities). Electro-hydraulic models provide the additional simplicity of switching between ISO and H operating patterns with the push of a button.
According to the company’s press release, B Series loaders feature a “completely redesigned operator interface, including new left- and right-hand posts (all models) with simple ignition, push-button operation, easy throttle control and intuitive switches for all core machine functions. Contractors may choose between standard mechanical, mechanical hand-and-foot, and electro-hydraulic controls when specifying a machine.”
Other features include operator profiles that allow storing and recall of specific operator settings to match either individual operator preference or job types, as well as engine protection settings and new troubleshooting functions.
“CASE CTLs and skid steers are enhanced to deliver a completely new and intuitive operating experience while also standing up to the rigors of heavy earthmoving and attachment use,” says George Mac Intyre, product manager for compact equipment, CASE. “The B Series retains the styling of previous CASE loaders, yet critical operational systems have been re-engineered for greater performance, and fully integrated with new control and operator interfaces to give contractors productivity, efficiency and convenience.”
