Sixty years and counting for Case
By Steve Ducker03 May 2018
Case Construction Equipment has celebrated 60 years of wheeled loader production, which goes all the way back to its W9 product launched in the late 1950s.
The company’s latest offering is the G Series, which ranges from 141 to 347 hp, which bucket payloads from 3.9 to 10.2 t and volumes from 1.9 to 5.5 cu m (67 to 194 cu ft).
A special “60 years” model from the series was the centrepiece of a dedicated display on the company’s stand at the Intermat exhibition in Paris last week.
Jose Cuadrado, vice president CNH Industrial Construction Equipment for Europe Africa and Middle East, said: “The W9 marked the beginning of a long history of innovation pioneered through many generations of wheeled loaders, culminating in today’s G-Series, introduced a revolutionary windscreen design and raised the bar on operator comfort.
“These machines have come a long way since the original models and reflect the practical innovation Case builds into its equipment to maximise performance and dependability.”
