CASE Launches All-New TV370 Compact Track Loader

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the TV370 compact track loader (CTL), a new 74-horsepower machine 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 and a vertical-lift design that makes it ideal for loading trucks, and lifting and placing heavier palletized materials.

“As the CTL market expands, there are no one-size-fits-all solutions,” says John Dotto, brand marketing manager, CASE. The new TV370 gives contractors a 74-horsepower option in a large-frame vertical CTL that provides a high capacity, low ground pressure and stable platform for earthmoving, load and lift applications, and heavy attachments while utilizing a maintenance-free after-treatment system.

Top Farm Attachments for Light Construction Equipment

Backhoe Maintenance 101

While backhoes are a staple in many large fleets where they are cared for by a full-time fleet manager, they are equally – if not more so – widespread among owner/operators and smaller businesses where the person operating the machine is also the one performing maintenance on it, hauling it, site foreman, lunch gofer, etc.

Even in those large fleets, where they may have “a guy” who performs all the maintenance, there are actions that operators can take in their day-to-day activities that will have a long-term effect on the health and performance of the machine.
