Equipment manufacturer to debut new-look stand and show strong line-up of products for quarrying and road construction
Construction machinery providers Case will debut a new-look stand at Hillhead this year. The group’s stand will be split in to two main zones – one for quarrying with products designed to meet the exact requirements of this sector, and the other area with machines and equipment solutions for the roadbuilding industry.
There will also be dedicated areas with information on Case’s complete solutions offering, including parts, service, finance, and SiteWatch and SiteControl.
The static displays will include models from the latest Case G-Series wheel loader range, the largest D-Series excavator and graders, dozers, backhoe loaders, mini skid-steers and mini-excavators. Machines will also be in action in the event’s demonstration area throughout the exhibition.
There will plenty of stand activities for visitors to get involved with. The UK heat of the ever-popular Rodeo Challenge will take place and operators are invited to test their skills and nerve at the controls of a CX75C midi excavator against the clock, to compete for a place in the grand finals in Paris later this year.
In addition, a Case simulator will offer the experience of what it is like behind the controls of a Case machine and there will be a competition to win two VIP hospitality tickets to the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Making its UK show debut will be the CX750 D-Series excavator. This is the largest and most powerful Case machine in the excavator range, delivering best-in-class productivity and operating at 512hp with up to 366kN of bucket digging force. The undercarriage and front attachments have been reinforced in most of the D Series, including the CX750D, which can work in the harshest conditions, ensuring maximum uptime.
The excavator display will also include a CX210D and all models within this range meet Tier 4 Final standards, resulting in minimal maintenance, no diesel particulate filter (DPF) and associated lifetime service costs.
Case’s wheel loaders have always had a strong reputation for delivering high performance and reliability in quarrying and earthmoving applications. Building on that is the latest G-Series range which includes: a 1021G; 821G; and 721G.
Offering outstanding operator comfort, best-in-class visibility and operator protection, this wheel loader line has raised the bar for industry standards. For example, impressive performance is delivered by efficient EU Stage IV/Tier 4 Final diesel engines developed in-house.
In the roadbuilding zone, the machines featured have been specially designed to combine maximum productivity and performance with low total cost of ownership.
Case’s 2050 M-Series dozer, the largest in the range, delivers power and precision. Featuring a new undercarriage and SCR technology, time spent on maintenance and fuel consumption has been greatly reduced.
Fresh from Intermat is the 836 C-Series grader, part of a range developed specifically for the European market. With high-performance all-wheel drive, speed management, dual power curve, with a higher-power rating at high-speed in fourth gear, and the exclusive multi-radius moldboard, this is a machine that delivers superior productivity.
The 590ST backhoe loader features include: heavy-duty chassis and axles; and an advanced fuel-efficient diesel engine that runs smoothly and economically with minimum emissions and low noise levels.
Completing the display will be a CX26C mini excavator that offers superior comfort and best-in-class lifting capacity, and the SR240 skid-steer loader.
Visitors to the new-look Case stand will learn about the company offerings are a lot more than its products, but also total solutions. There will be dedicated areas with information on monitoring systems such as SiteWatch, a monitoring tool providing measurable and actionable information to help make fleet management easier, more productive, reliable and profitable.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to learn more about SiteControl and the iCON portfolio from Leica Geosystems – hardware and software solutions for positioning and measuring tasks on road and construction sites.
The Case team will be on also be hand to provide information on all their products and services including: tailored finance packages; extended warranties; the new Protech4 wheel loader support programme; plus a comprehensive range of attachments. The stand will also showcase vehicles for the construction industry from Case sister brands Iveco (eg new Stralis X-Way in both 8x2 and 8x4 configurations) and Astra (eg HD9 heavy-duty truck).
