CASE TV370 Compact Track Loader Named to Construction Equipment Top 100

Construction Equipment magazine named the CASE Construction Equipment TV370 compact track loader to its list of Top 100 new products for 2018. The annual awards are selected by Construction Equipment editors as they take into consideration four key criteria related to new product introductions for the last year: “an advancement in technology, a new product line, offers significant improvements to existing products, or increases competition in its field.”

The CASE TV370 is a 74-horsepower compact track loader that combines a maintenance-free Tier 4 Final solution with the strength and reach of a large-frame CTL. The TV370 provides a 3,700-pound rated operating capacity (50 percent tipping weight) and a vertical-lift design that makes it ideal for loading trucks, and lifting and placing heavier palletized materials.

CASE Announces New C Series Motor Graders

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the all-new C Series motor graders. Two new models deliver a wide offering of new weights, horsepower ratings and feature-driven grading solutions for municipalities, as well as small-to-mid-size site prep, road-maintenance and general construction businesses. These new motor grader models feature a variety of standard features designed to maximize productivity and performance. Available in both standard and All Wheel Drive (AWD) configurations, the 836C and 856C achieve Tier 4 Final compliance with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) engine technology that increases fuel efficiency, keeps exhaust temperatures down and eliminates the need for regeneration.

The new models include:

Anatomy of an Independent Equipment Rental Fleet

John Sherlock’s story is one of evolution. Sherlock owns Sherlock Equipment in Bremerton, Washington – serving the Kitsap Peninsula with compact track loaders, mini excavators — and growing now to include dozers, mid-sized excavators and backhoes. Sherlock himself was a contractor until 2011, when he transitioned into short line equipment sales and, eventually, equipment rental in 2014.

“We saw the need for good quality rental equipment in the area, and we try to supply our customers with the best equipment we can get,” says Sherlock.

CASE, Luby Equipment Support Team Rubicon in Training/Prairie Mitigation Project

CASE Construction Equipment, and heavy equipment dealer Luby Equipment, provided training support and donated the use of skid steers, compact track loaders and excavators to Team Rubicon for a combination training/service project in Van Buren County, Iowa. “Operation Forgotten Villages” performed prairie mitigation and long-term trail recovery work in Bentonsport, Iowa, designed to remove invasive growth and return the prairie to native grasses in support of local wildlife.

Team Rubicon volunteers cleared 14 acres of trees, and more than 20,000 cubic feet of invasive vegetation, to return the prairie back to its natural state. The effort is estimated to have saved the local community more than $60,000, and gave Team Rubicon heavy equipment operators valuable stick time to train for disasters, such as Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael.

CASE Introduces All-New TV450 Compact Track Loader

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the all-new TV450 compact track loader (CTL), a new 10,610-pound vertical-lift machine with a rated operating capacity of 4,500 pounds at 50 percent tipping load. The newest and largest CASE CTL ever built features an industry leading 9,188 pounds of breakout force, and optional high-flow (3,450 psi at 39.5 gpm) and enhanced high-flow (4,000 psi at 35 gpm) hydraulics for high-power attachments such as mulching heads, stump grinders and cold planers.

“The CASE TV450 provides lifting and earthmoving performance that will meet the demand of general contractors, landscapers, roadbuilders — and the 4,000 psi with enhanced high-flow makes this an excellent platform for attachments,” says Deborah Townsley, product marketing manager, CASE Construction Equipment. “It’s a powerful, large-frame loader that handles heavy materials and still provides the advantages of low ground pressure for jobsites where finished lawns and underground utilities may exist.”

CASE Introduces All-New Precision Laser Grading Box Attachment

CASE Construction Equipment has announced the first precision-enabled attachment for CASE skid steers and compact track loaders (CTLs) — the new CASE Laser Grading Box. Ideal for concrete subgrade, athletic fields, parking lots, driveways, equestrian arenas and other fine-grading applications, the CASE Laser Grading Box creates highly precise finish grades to within 1/10th of an inch.

With a reversible cutting edge on all sides, the grading box’s unique push-pull design grades moving forward or in reverse to utilize the maneuverability of a skid steer/CTL and increase productivity. The hydraulic valve system adjusts the grading box, providing operators with smooth and accurate performance even in tough environments.

CASE Announces All-New Mulcher Attachment

CASE Construction Equipment has introduced an all-new mulcher-head attachment. Compatible with CASE skid steers and compact track loaders, the attachment ships standard with high flow (HF) configuration, and can be easily converted at the dealership for use with enhanced high flow (EHF) hydraulics systems on 90-HP+ machines.

Ideal for land clearing, site prep, right-of-way and trail maintenance applications, the mulcher features a variable two-speed motor that automatically adjusts the motor displacement to maximize rotor speed and torque to changing material loads.

Understanding Wheel Loader Transmission, Axle and Differential Options

Wheel loaders today offer a number of options as it relates to powertrain components. While size, horsepower and bucket capacities drive the initial loader identification/purchase phase, the next level of consideration — where decisions are made about transmission, axle and differential options — has a significant effect on long-term performance, productivity and total cost of ownership.

Even in the demo phase, operating a loader that is not the right match of powertrain to application and ground conditions can sway a purchase decision one way or the other, only to surprise the machine’s owner when they get it into real world conditions. Worse yet: powertrain options not properly matched to the site can lead to excessive wear on tires and components, downtime, and lifetime maintenance costs much higher than they should be. It’s also worth noting that operators should be properly trained in machine operation as it relates to the powertrain options selected.
