CASE Beefs up D Series with new CX490D and CX500D Excavators

CASE Construction Equipment has introduced two new crawler excavators to its D Series lineup: the CX490D and CX500D. These new models are designed for heavy excavation work and replace the company’s previous 47-metric ton excavator the CX470C. Each model is built to provide significant operational gains, including cycle times up to 10 percent faster, improved responsiveness and multifunctional controls, and greater fuel efficiency. An electronically controlled hydraulic pump and larger control and solenoid valves boost breakout forces, increase lifting strength and improve responsiveness.

D Series models offer more standard features than previous CASE excavators, simplifying the buying process and making them extremely versatile and operator friendly. All CASE D Series excavators provide peace of mind and lower total cost of ownership through CASE ProCare™.

CASE Long Reach Excavators Add Increased Digging Capabilities to D Series Lineup

CASE Construction Equipment’s CX210D LR and CX250D LR crawler excavators provide increased operating performance for deep trenching, sloping, demolition, dredging, digging in sand or gravel pits or any application that requires long-distance bucket reach and precision. Each Long Reach (LR) model features an elongated boom and arm for increased digging capabilities in deep or long-distance digging applications, while providing the same improved responsiveness and multifunction controls of the D Series.

Each model also offers more standard features than previous CASE excavators, simplifying the buying process and making them extremely versatile and operator friendly. All CASE D Series excavators provide peace of mind and lower total cost of ownership through CASE ProCare™.

CASE 1021F Carries Heavy Load at Granite Pit for Largest Chip Seal Contractor in Wisconsin

Scott Construction Inc., Lake Delton, Wis., is one of Wisconsin’s leading asphalt surfacing companies, and the largest chip seal contractor in the state. To support the amount of chip seal work the company performs throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota (regional suppliers couldn’t keep up with the demand), the company began mining granite out of the new Pine Valley Quarry (Neillsville, Wis.) in 2015.

With the new quarry, Scott Construction can control quality and access to its chip seal products. The company shoots raw granite and crushes it down down to 5/8-inch minus, and then screens it and crushes it down again to ½-inch minus. The company then washes that and crushes it down to 3/8-inch and ¼-inch minus product. The remaining byproduct is then used for hot mix and concrete.

One of the latest projects for Rafat is the mass excavation of a site for the construction of a new retirement facility in the greater Toronto area.

Dozer Undercarriage Health and Maintenance Drives Total Machine Performance

As featured in Aggregates Manager. Fact: approximately 20 percent of the purchase price and 50 percent of the maintenance cost of a dozer sits in its undercarriage.

That’s a lot of money tied to one component. Of all tracked machines, a dozer undercarriage experiences more force, abrasion and resistance than any other piece of equipment. Keeping that undercarriage in good working order will go a long way towards reducing maintenance costs and optimizing your working hours. In this article we will cover tips on how to prevent and minimize undercarriage wear, maximize undercarriage life and lower owning and operating costs.
