CASE launches new construction equipment for utility contractors struggling with labor shortages

(UI) — CASE Construction Equipment is enhancing its machine lineup, offering a wide range of new models and upgrades to help construction and utility crews facing labor shortages and constrained jobsites.

The new lineup of CASE machines includes three new Construction King backhoe loaders, a new 5-metric ton class mini excavator and an all-new, full-sized wheel loader that ups the ante on power and versatility.

CASE is also launching new upgrades to existing machines, including maintenance-free emissions solutions and linkage improvements for compact wheel loaders, and enclosed cab options for CASE H Series all-terrain forklifts. 

New backhoe loaders double down on productivity in close quarters 

Previewed at last year’s CONEXPO, the new 97-horsepower CASE 580SV Construction King side shift and the larger, 110-horsepower CASE 695SV side-shift and 695SV center-pivot models are now available, in addition to the N Series lineup.

The new machines carry over many popular features from the N Series, like:

  • ProControl swing dampening
  • Auto ride control and
  • ECO modes for fuel savings
  • Significant upgrades to maneuverability.

“The new side-shift models take the legendary CASE Construction King capabilities to new frontiers, putting them smack dab into confined spaces and up next to structures,” says George MacIntyre, product manager – backhoe loaders. “With a hydraulic side-shift boom and vertical outriggers, these machines can get more done in tight spaces. They also let operators dig rectangular trenches without having to reposition.” 

The CASE 580SV side shift features a tool carrier design that improves stability and material retention, while its side-shift configuration and narrow width make for more productive work in confined spaces. The CASE 695SV side-shift and center-pivot models feature a tool carrier loader arm, allowing them to do double duty as a wheel loader, meaning one less machine to bring to the jobsite. 

Both 695SV models are equipped with 4WD, 4-wheel steer and four equal-sized tires and include a PowerShift transmission. The expanded CASE backhoe offering is also compatible with numerous attachments, allowing crews to improve productivity, speed and accuracy on various jobs.

New CASE mini excavator brings upsized power and versatility 

The CASE CX50D mini excavator, a 5-metric ton class machine, offers greater lifting capacity and better digging performance for jobs that demand more production in shorter time from operators. 

When it comes to attachment versatility, the new mini excavator powers a wide range of specialized attachments for highly varied jobs. It comes standard with multifunctional hydraulics and a second auxiliary circuit, as well as an optional third auxiliary circuit for advanced attachments like tilt rotators and grapples.

It also offers another optional dedicated auxiliary circuit to power mulchers. Crews can also improve the safety and efficiency of material handling with the optional Object Handling Kit that includes check valves on the boom and arm. 

Operators will also be able to work longer and more comfortably in the CX50D thanks to the automotive-style cab that includes heat and A/C, Bluetooth radio, a five-way adjustable seat and a customizable LCD screen.

CASE delivers more muscle that’s easy to handle with new full-sized wheel loader 

The CASE 651G delivers a force of nearly 24,000 lbs. and lifting capacity of over 16,100 lbs. for tough jobs. The new model also features a larger hydraulic pump for increased cycle times, a curved bucket for better material retention and a higher hinge pin for better dumping clearance. 

Features like a touchscreen display and adjustable, intuitive electrohydraulic controls allow the operator to independently set boom and bucket responsiveness to smooth, moderate or aggressive.

The new CASE 651G also includes comfort features like Bluetooth radio, heat and A/C, an adjustable seat and more.  

Compact wheel loaders boost visibility and control in tight jobsites

Updates to CASE F Series compact wheel loaders will help teams working in confined jobsites with new features that improve visibility and control. An elevated driving position, curved glass in the cab and four-corner strobe lights ensure maximum visibility on the jobsite. New Z-bar linkage upgrades let operators push their machine further with maximum breakout force.

CASE 21F, 121F, 221F and 321F models also feature time-saving, maintenance-free Tier 4 Final emissions solutions that improve uptime by eliminating regeneration and expensive diesel particulate filters.  

Control-enhancing features like parallel lift capabilities on CASE 21F and 121F models help keep loads stable and allow for better visibility of the coupler during attachment changeouts.

CASE 221F and 321F models combine auxiliary high-flow hydraulics and a creep speed mode to provide max hydraulic flow at constant speeds for smoother operation of attachments like brooms and snowblowers. All the models also feature improved LCD screens with simplified controls to make operation easier. 

Cab options for rough-terrain forklifts protect operators in tough conditions

CASE H Series rough-terrain forklifts offer construction crews and utility teams a versatile, easy-to-operate solution for lifting heavy loads in off-road environments. Now, a new factory-designed, built and installed enclosed cab option protects the operator from the elements and helps teams work in more extreme conditions. With heat, AC and comfort features such as Bluetooth® radio and USB charging ports, operators can continue working in any weather.

The cab features wide doors that secure completely open — allowing for easy communication with crew and increased airflow. The cab also has an overhead roof window for better visibility to overhead loads. 

These highly maneuverable machines feature zero tailswing for close-quarter jobsites and can easily road from jobsite to jobsite with speeds up to 24 miles per hour. They’re also customizable with a variety of mast options that can lift loads up to 8,000 lbs. as high as 22 feet depending on the machine and mast.
