CASE, Central Machinery Work with Team Rubicon to Improve Wetland Habitats at Turnbull Wildlife Refuge

CASE Construction Equipment and Central Machinery provided equipment and product/training support to veteran-led disaster response organization Team Rubicon for use in training 10 new participants in its heavy equipment training program at Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge. The training included critical project work removing man-made islands in low-lying wetland areas to improve the habitat for birds and waterfowl.

“We’re tearing down these islands and smoothing it out to return these wetlands to the way Mother Nature intended them to be,” says Steve Fox, engineering equipment operator, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. “It opens up the water and creates more of a natural habitat. Team Rubicon has been great. This is something that’s going to take us a few years to complete – they’ve helped us get farther along than we would be – it offers them a training area, and we’re getting good work done on the refuge.”

CASE Launches All-New G Series Wheel Loaders

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the all-new G Series wheel loaders, spanning seven new models scaled for work ranging from supply yards, building construction and agriculture up to quarries and mass excavation. The new introduction brings the entire product line to Tier 4 Final compliance featuring Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) engine technology that increases fuel efficiency, keeps exhaust temperatures down and eliminates regeneration or lifetime diesel particulate filter (DPF) costs/maintenance.

An all-new operator environment, controls and interface make the G Series the most intuitive and easy-to-operate wheel loaders CASE has ever produced, and packages/options are available to optimize G Series Wheel Loaders for work in specialty applications such as waste/scrap, agriculture and snow removal. Efficiencies in power/output, maintenance and operator ergonomics/interaction – combined with CASE ProCare – provide an exceptionally low and predictable total cost of ownership/productivity across the entire product line.

Carrier Considerations for Hydraulic Breakers

Hydraulic breakers—and the carriers that run them—are critical pieces of equipment on any job site, and the technologies incorporated into both have improved quite a bit over the years. But even the most modern, high-performance breakers can increase the wear and tear on an excavator or other carrier machine. Matching a breaker attachment to the right machine is essential for maintaining maximum production and safety on site as well as getting the most out of your equipment investment—here are several considerations to help match the right carrier to your breaker attachment.

The primary machine considerations for breaker usage are the operating weight, tipping load, length of the boom and arm, overall lift capacity and hydraulic flow characteristics—namely operating pressure, hydraulic flow rate and auxiliary flow rate.

CASE Introduces New SV340 Skid Steer for Heavy-Duty Earthmoving and Attachment Use

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the new SV340 skid steer – the company’s most powerful skid steer ever built.
