CASE Construction Equipment has announced the availability of a new open canopy option for its F Series compact wheel loader lineup. Ideal for rental businesses, agriculture, supply yards, warehouses and other applications where open-cab units are preferred/acceptable, the new rugged four-post ROPS/FOPS-compliant canopy option offers excellent visibility to all sides of the machine and includes the same new upgraded electro-hydraulic controls as the enclosed-cab configuration.
CASE F Series Compact Wheel Loaders
CASE Construction Equipment’s F Series compact wheel loaders provide operators with more reach, lift capacity, visibility and comfort compared to other light equipment. The F Series compact wheel loaders feature CASE’s proven maintenance-free Tier 4 Final solution that requires no regeneration or related downtime. A compact frame and articulating rear axle provide stable lifting strength of more than 8,300 pounds at full height.
CASE Construction Equipment partners each year with Construction Equipment magazine to present the Annual Report & Forecast, a look at the year ahead in the construction industry from the perspective of fleet managers, as well as businesses in transportation infrastructure, residential construction, non-residential construction and water infrastructure.

Equipment rental companies can typically be put into one of three categories:
- Large national rental company with large equipment
- Medium regional rental company with general equipment
- Small local rental company with key pieces of equipment
So, what is it that smaller rental companies need to grow their fleets? Specifically, what does a small company need to know if they want to grow not only their business, but also the size of their equipment fleet? There are some key observations that can help answer that question:
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.
The construction equipment industry is seeing innovative new developments across all categories that are changing the way we work, and crawler dozers—once considered one of the more difficult machines to master—have now become considerably simpler to operate.
The key trends that are driving innovation in the crawler dozer category are centered primarily around operator experience—and this goes beyond comfortable cabs and easy-to-use 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.
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 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.”
