CASE TV450 Compact Track Loader Earns Two Industry Awards

The CASE TV450 compact track loader has garnered the attention of two of the construction equipment industry’s leading publications. The TV450 has recently been named one of the Contractors’ Top 50 New Products of 2019 by Equipment Today magazine, and has earned a 2019 Editor’s Choice Award from Green Industry Pros.

Equipment Today’s 2019 Contractors’ Top 50 New Products is the construction industry’s only award program based specifically on end-user input. It is compiled based on user engagement from Equipment Today magazine and ForConstructionPros.com over a 12-month period.

CASE Upgrades F Series Compact Wheel Loaders with Electro-hydraulic Controls

CASE Construction Equipment has upgraded its F Series compact wheel loader lineup with new adjustable electro-hydraulic controls. This added functionality allows operators to adjust the responsiveness of the lift and tilt bucket functions for improved control and efficiency on the jobsite.

Lift and tilt settings can now be adjusted with two new 3-way rocker switches (high, medium, low) mounted on the side console, allowing operators to adjust the responsiveness of the loader lift arms independently of the attachment tilt functions. These new programmable settings allow operators to program the machine’s response based on their personal preferences, or to better meet the demands of the job at hand.

What Kind of Skid Steer/Compact Track Loader Owner Are You?

A skid steer or compact track loader may be the most important machine in your fleet – but are you in the right machine?

Whether as support equipment in a larger fleet or the main workhorse for an owner/operator, a skid steer and compact track loader are two of the most versatile machines a contractor can own. But what is the right loader arm and platform for each application? Contractors can follow this quick guide to set them on the right path.

CASE Celebrates 50 Years of Skid Steer Manufacturing

CASE Construction Equipment celebrated 50 years of skid steer manufacturing with a ceremony on Wednesday, April 3rd at its Wichita, Kansas plant. CASE first built skid steers in 1969 at its Burlington, Iowa facility, before eventually moving production to Wichita.

“Skid steers completely transformed the construction equipment landscape, and CASE has played a leading role in the evolution and development of this product category throughout the last 50 years,” says Michel Marchand, vice president — North America, CASE Construction Equipment. “These machines reflect every bit of our heritage from construction to agriculture, and we are committed to helping our customers build strong communities and businesses with the help of CASE skid steers built here in the U.S.A.”     

Reduce Downtime and Maximize Productivity with Daily Maintenance of your CTL

Today’s high-performance compact track loaders (CTLs) can provide several productivity advantages on nearly any jobsite. However, these competitive advantages can be lost if a CTL isn’t running at peak performance, and there are several things that equipment owners can do to improve productivity and extend service life.

By taking the following steps each day pre- and post-operation, equipment owners and operators can help to 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.

Airless Radial Tires Extend Tire Life, Improve Operator Comfort for La Belle Dairy

La Belle Dairy (La Belle, Missouri) relies on a fleet of skid steer loaders for a variety of tasks around the farm — from cleaning out bedding and pushing feed, to construction projects and site improvement. These machines are the ultimate utility player on the farm — capable of handling and quickly switching between numerous attachments.

“We have two SR210s, and four SV175s. And each one of those is designated for a different part of our dairy applications,” says Luman Wilkerson, operations manager, La Belle Dairy. “One 210 we use to clean out the mangers in the morning, to clean out the feed that the cows don’t eat. Then we have the other one fill in or do a lot of cleanup, or move palettes and materials around. And then the [SV175s] we use for bedding and cleaning the walkways for the cows.”

CASE TV370 Compact Track Loader Named to Construction Equipment Top 100

Construction Equipment magazine named the CASE Construction Equipment TV370 compact track loader to its list of Top 100 new products for 2018. The annual awards are selected by Construction Equipment editors as they take into consideration four key criteria related to new product introductions for the last year: “an advancement in technology, a new product line, offers significant improvements to existing products, or increases competition in its field.”

The CASE TV370 is a 74-horsepower compact track loader 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 (50 percent tipping weight) and a vertical-lift design that makes it ideal for loading trucks, and lifting and placing heavier palletized materials.

CASE Announces New C Series Motor Graders

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the all-new C Series motor graders. Two new models deliver a wide offering of new weights, horsepower ratings and feature-driven grading solutions for municipalities, as well as small-to-mid-size site prep, road-maintenance and general construction businesses.

Understanding Wheel Loader Transmission, Axle and Differential Options

Wheel loaders today offer a number of options as it relates to powertrain components. While size, horsepower and bucket capacities drive the initial loader identification/purchase phase, the next level of consideration — where decisions are made about transmission, axle and differential options — has a significant effect on long-term performance, productivity and total cost of ownership.

Even in the demo phase, operating a loader that is not the right match of powertrain to application and ground conditions can sway a purchase decision one way or the other, only to surprise the machine’s owner when they get it into real world conditions. Worse yet: powertrain options not properly matched to the site can lead to excessive wear on tires and components, downtime, and lifetime maintenance costs much higher than they should be. It’s also worth noting that operators should be properly trained in machine operation as it relates to the powertrain options selected.
