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.
Rod Sutton, editorial director of Construction Equipment, introduces the 2020 report as follows:

CASE Construction Equipment’s new full-size CX350D LR excavator provides increased operating performance in applications that require long-distance bucket reach and precision. The new model features an elongated boom and arm and additional counterweight for increased digging capabilities in deep or long-distance digging applications, while providing the same improved responsiveness and control of the D Series.
With an operating weight of 88,200 pounds, the CX350D LR features a 268 horsepower Tier 4 Final diesel engine and up to 24,500 foot-pounds of bucket digging force. The extended arm and boom provide a maximum dig radius of 61 feet 3 inches, and a maximum dig depth of 46 feet 3 inches.
CASE Construction Equipment had four new products/product groups—the CASE DV Series small-frame vibratory rollers, N Series backhoes, 2050M dozer landfill configuration and Laser Grading Box attachment—named to Construction Equipment’s 2019 Top 100 New Products list.
Compiled based on editors’ reviews and nominations, the Top 100 awards are designed to recognize the top equipment of the year based on advances in technology, new product lines, significant improvements to existing products and increasing competition in the field.
CASE Construction Equipment sponsored and participated in the latest season of the Lifetime Network show “Military Makeover”, which debuts on November 8, 2019 (set your DVR and check local listings for screening times). The show, hosted by Montel Williams, enlists “designers, contractors, landscapers and other home improvement professionals to transform the homes and lives of military families across the country.”
This new season — the show’s 20th — focuses on Steven Wojcik and his family in Strum, Wisconsin. Wojcik, who had served four years of active duty with the U.S. Marines and, to date, sixteen years in the Army Reserves, earned the Purple Heart for injuries sustained in combat, the Meritorious Service Medal, and the National Defense Service Medal. He continues to serve his community today as a Wisconsin State Trooper.
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.
Take any drive through the foothills up into the Rocky Mountains, you’re bound to see a home or two, perched atop a mountain, that makes you think: “How did they possibly build that?”
That type of reaction fuels Steve Grapes, the owner of Black Diamond Excavating. He grew up in the Midwest, but now it’s hard to pry him from the mountains, where Black Diamond specializes in preparing sites on extreme mountainside pitches. In fact, his company is named after the steep slopes that make Colorado one of the country’s premier ski destinations.
