CASE Unveils the Tier 4 Final 521F Wheel Loader

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the new 521F wheel loader that meets federal Tier 4 Final emissions standards using Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. The new machine delivers best-in-class 131 net peak horsepower with an FPT Tier 4 Final-certified engine that also provides quick throttle response and impressive torque. The 22,948-pound wheel loader has a bucket breakout force of 19,303 pounds with 2.3-cubic-yard bucket capacity.

The SCR technology allows the machine to handle inconsistent engine loads while running at peak performance without compromising power. This is accomplished with a faster throttle response and acceleration, all while maintaining lower exhaust temperatures and improving fuel efficiency.

The Art of Equipment Fuel Efficiency

Diesel costs are one of the heaviest line items in a contractor’s budget. Smart equipment use, maintenance and selection, however, can significantly reduce the amount of diesel fuel burned each day. This helps extend runtimes (greater productivity/less time refueling and acquiring fuel), reduce total operating costs and, ultimately, be more competitive when bidding jobs.

In this article, we’ll cover a few core principles that affect fuel efficiency throughout the life of a machine and how to get the most out of each gallon.
