CASE Launches All-New Mini Excavator Line with Six New Models
Posted on: 07 Mar 2017
CASE Construction Equipment introduces six new mini excavators: the CX17C, CX26C, CX33C, CX37C, CX57C and CX60C. This new offering expands the CASE mini excavator lineup to its broadest range of sizes ever, and provides a more comprehensive and feature-driven compact excavator solution to the construction, landscaping, utility and rental markets.
The CX57C and CX60C provide greater power and performance than any previous CASE mini excavators, and offer best-in-class horsepower.
Each new model features a variety of standard features designed to improve productivity and performance. The new machines feature a zero tail swing, short-radius or conventional design, adjustable boom offset for improved maneuverability in congested areas and an auto-shift travel system for operator convenience in varying terrain. An auxiliary hydraulic system with standard proportional controls, shut-off valve and easy-to-select joystick control patterns offer increased productivity, and a spacious and comfortable operator environment with excellent visibility, ergonomic controls, adjustable seating and line-of-sight digital displays minimizes operator fatigue.
The new models include:
- CX17C: (16.8 horsepower; 3,910 pounds; bucket digging force: 3,490 foot pounds)
- CX26C: (24.8 horsepower; 5,520 pounds; bucket digging force: 4,740 foot pounds)
- CX33C: (24.4 horsepower; 7,110 pounds; bucket digging force: 6,900 foot pounds)
- CX37C: (24.4 horsepower; 7,990 pounds; bucket digging force: 4,470 foot pounds)
- CX57C: (66.9 horsepower; 12,050 pounds; bucket digging force: 9,550 foot pounds)
- CX60C: (64.7 horsepower; 12,940 pounds; bucket digging force: 9,190 foot pounds)
Offered in zero tail swing, short-radius or conventional configurations, C Series mini excavators feature an adjustable boom with the ability to offset left or right to work closer to buildings and obstacles. The CX17C features a variable-width undercarriage and adjustable blade capable of passing through most common gates and for working on confined jobsites, close to buildings and in developed areas.
Weighing 7,990 pounds and with bucket digging forces up to 4,470 foot-pounds, the CX37C is a versatile machine — powerful enough for tough jobs, but nimble enough to access more confined areas. In addition to that, like all C Series models — with the exception of the CX57C and CX60C — it can be towed with a pickup truck, without the need for a CDL (local and state regulations may apply).
Standard proportional controls provide precision control of all attachments with the ease-of-thumb control, while a standard auxiliary flow diverter valve (CX17C – CX37C) allows the operator to easily switch between single and bi-directional flow for use with a variety of attachments. An easy-to-use pattern selector also comes standard, allowing operators to choose their control pattern preference for optimum productivity.
A standard Auto-Shift travel system provides operator comfort and convenience by securing travel speed and torque as ground conditions change. All C Series mini excavators also feature standard auxiliary hydraulics for easy thumb and attachment setup, as well as standard boom and blade guarding. The CX57C and CX60C come standard with an LCD touchscreen with up-to-the-minute machine performance data and intuitive access to machine settings.
The C Series mini excavators provide a spacious, stress-free operator environment, and feature excellent all-around visibility, ergonomic controls, adjustable seating and line-of-sight digital displays for improved operator comfort.
All models feature easy-to-open panels for easy maintenance/repair, as well as grouped ground-level service checkpoints for easy and convenient daily maintenance. The C Series mini excavators also feature spacious, wide-opening compartments for excellent access to the engine, control valves and radiator.
