CASE Celebrates 60 Years of Wheel Loader Manufacturing in 2018

CASE Construction Equipment will celebrate its 60th anniversary of wheel loader production with a variety of promotions and activities throughout the year. The activities start at World of Concrete 2018 where the first 500 people who visit the CASE booth (C5748) will receive a commemorative CASE t-shirt celebrating the milestone.

The current offering of CASE wheel loaders evolved from the W9, the first CASE integrated four-wheel drive wheel loader introduced in 1958. The W10 and W12 four-wheel drive models and the front-drive W5 loader soon followed. The W series grew through the 1960’s and 1970s, including the mammoth 15-ton W26 articulated loader, introduced in 1968. It was the largest wheel loader offered at the time, boasting a 3-yard standard bucket. The 4-yard W36 arrived in 1977. The W series loaders all featured cabs mounted on the front half of the machine.

CASE Announces Michelin X Tweel SSL Airless Radial Tires as Factory Option on All Skid Steer Loader Models

CASE Construction Equipment announces the availability of Michelin® X® Tweel® SSL All-Terrain Airless Radial Tires as a factory-approved/supplied option on all skid steer loader models. Airless radial tires perform just like a pneumatic tire, but without the risk and costly downtime associated with penetrations and impact damage. CASE is the first skid steer loader OEM to offer the Michelin X Tweel SSL from the factory.

The Michelin X Tweel SSL is one single unit, replacing traditional tire/wheel/valve assemblies. There is no need for complex wheel/tire mounting equipment. There is no air pressure to maintain once each tire is bolted on. The AT models feature a deep open tread design for excellent cleaning and traction, and a deep layer of undertread allows the core to be retread many times.

By taking the following steps each day pre- and post-operation, equipment owners and operators will prevent bad things from happening before they turn into costly downtime events, and will ensure that fleet managers can address concerns in equipment health and upkeep at times throughout the day with the least impact on productivity.

CASE and Michigan Dealers Donate Equipment to Team Rubicon and Habitat for Humanity for Urban Renewal/Recovery Project

CASE Construction Equipment, RPM Machinery, Southeastern Equipment, Habitat for Humanity of Kent County and Team Rubicon teamed up for a heavy equipment operator training and socio-economic improvement project—named Operation Fearless Mary—in the Roosevelt Park neighborhood of Grand Rapids, Michigan. RPM Machinery and Southeastern Equipment donated the use of several skid steers and excavators, while Team Rubicon brought in 72 volunteers and 20 new members from across the U.S. for the operation.

For Team Rubicon — an organization that unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams for disaster relief — this kind of training/community service operation prepares their volunteers for operating heavy equipment during deployments, and helps to solidify the humanitarian and relationship-building skills that are crucial in disaster response scenarios. A key component is Team Rubicon’s partnership with CASE, which provides both training and heavy equipment through its dealer network.
