Posted on: 11 Sep 2018
The CASE CX145D SR excavator has been named one of the Contractors’ Top 50 New Products of 2018 by Equipment Today magazine.
“The products recognized by the annual Contractors’ Top 50 New Products awards represent what contractors are seeking most to boost profitability on their construction projects,” says Becky Schultz, Equipment Today editor. “The high level of interest they generated from Equipment Today readers and visitors to ForConstructionPros.com demonstrates that these are products contractors feel are capable of improving performance, efficiency and productivity on their jobsites.”
Designed to provide ample digging and lifting power in a small footprint, the CX145D SR features a compact counterweight and modified boom placement. This results in a highly maneuverable and powerful excavator that is easy to transport and ideal for restricted jobsite conditions, such as road and bridge work, utilities, urban construction and landscaping applications.
With an operating weight of 32,100 pounds and a 102 HP Tier 4 Final engine, the CX145D SR offers bucket digging forces up to 21,400 foot-pounds and lift capacities up to 21,350 pounds. Options include a dozer blade configuration as well as the choice between either steel or rubber track pads depending on operating conditions and jobsite requirements.
The CX145D SR also achieves faster cycle times through a new electronically controlled pump, a larger control valve and multiple sensors. These features enhance the CASE Intelligent Hydraulic System and its four integrated control systems to make the best use of the machine’s hydraulic power and momentum, resulting in added strength and fuel efficiency. An Auto Power Boost feature provides increased breakout forces in tough applications, and overall operation is simplified with three Power Modes to maximize machine performance and fuel economy:
- Automatic (A): The best balance between productivity and fuel efficiency
- Heavy Duty (HD): High workload mode
- Speed Priority (SP): Extra speed and power for the most demanding jobs that require maximum productivity
As with all CASE heavy equipment, the CX145D SR is protected by CASE ProCare — a suite of product assurances that includes a three-year Advanced CASE SiteWatch™ telematics subscription, a three-year/3,000-hour full-machine factory warranty, and a three-year/3,000-hour planned maintenance contract. ProCare allows business owners to invest in new equipment while helping to make owning and operating costs predictable for the first three years of lease or ownership.
