New Holland launches 20 tonne wheeled loader
By Helen Wright28 February 2011
Case sister company New Holland launched nine new construction machines at the Samoter exhibition in Verona, Italy, including a 20 tonne wheeled loader for high production applications.
The new C Series wheeled loaders include three new models, the W170C, W190C and the 20 tonne W230C. All sport Tier 4 Interim engines with selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology and are said to offer more power, lower fuel consumption and greater productivity.
The W230C features a 168 kW engine and a 3,6 m3 bucket capacity offering greater tipping load weight and breakout force. New, heavy duty axles can cope with the most hostile environments and are ideal for working in applications such as waste and scrap handling, quarry, biogas, or compost handling.
New Holland also unveiled its 200 Series of skid steer loaders at the exhibition. The range comprises six models from 34 kW to 61 kW, and two compact track loaders (55 kW and 61 kW), all of which are said to feature twice the visibility in critical areas.
On show at Samoter were the L213 and L218 skid steers, featuring New Holland's vertical lift Super Boom design, which is said to deliver best-in-class forward dump height and reach.
Productivity is boosted by the machines' glide ride option, which eliminates arm bouncing while moving, together with a new, self-levelling bucket.
And the company also took the opportunity to demonstrate its new C Series of crawler excavators at the event. The new E265C and E305C models feature 142 kW and 152 kW output respectively, and have a redesigned hydraulic system.
The new hydraulics are said to ensure 100% pump utilisation in all applications and minimise friction losses and pressure drops, resulting in higher productivity.
The C Series crawler excavators feature SCR engines which are said to deliver a +10% increase in productivity in terms of m3/hour and up to -10% lower fuel consumption in Eco mode compared to the B Series.
Meanwhile, New Holland also displayed the B110B and B115B from its new range of tractor loader backhoes at the show. These machines feature a +20% bigger bucket which is self-levelling and remains full when travelling at high speed, thanks to the standard glide ride technology.
Improved hydraulics are also central to the new designs - the backhoes are equipped with a standard variable volume hydraulic pump which is highly reactive and goes into rest mode when not being used.
