CASE Introduces Excavator OEM-Fit SiteControl Machine Control Solutions

OEM-Fit offering ensures the proper match of excavator and machine control solution from Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, and simplifies the acquisition process with a single financing package.

CASE Construction Equipment introduces OEM-Fit 2D and 3D machine control solutions designed by Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon — now available for CASE D Series excavators from CASE SiteControl Certified dealers. This new option ensures that the optimal combination of machine and solution is installed and tested by CASE certified precision field specialists. It also simplifies the acquisition process and allows for the technology to be grouped in with the purchase of the machine — combining the financing or lease approval, rate and payment in a single package.

“It takes the guesswork out of what solution works best with each machine, and ensures that it is installed and tested by certified professionals before it’s delivered to the contractor,” says Nathaniel Waldschmidt, product manager, CASE Construction Equipment. “The excavator and the machine control system are optimally matched and calibrated — helping the owners and operators of each machine get up and running immediately upon delivery of the machine.”

Power, Ease of Transportation & Factory-Fit Machine Control Drive Dozer Performance

CASE 850M dozer works from cut-and-fill to fine grading, and offers benefits — from acquisition to resale — of factory-fit machine control.

Dirt work is in Brian Golden’s blood — and the connection to each generation of his family is present every day at MacMor Construction LLC. Founded in 2013 and named after his daughters — Mackenzie and Morgan — MacMor started as a three-man crew and has grown into a sitework and heavy highway powerhouse with 46 full-time employees.

“My father was a general superintendent back in the day,” explains Golden. “He’s actually still involved today — he’s come on and he runs the field operations for me now. This has been something that’s been in my blood forever, and it’s just, I like the work. I like the equipment, I like dealing with the owners… It’s just what I do.”

CASE Precision Grader Blade for Compact Track Loaders

New attachment is compatible with the same 2D and 3D machine control technologies deployed on full-sized motor graders, allowing contractors to transform their CTL into a powerful and compact precision grading solution.

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the all-new CASE Precision Grader Blade, a powerful new attachment for large-frame compact track loaders that delivers the grading performance of a motor grader in a more compact and agile footprint. The CASE Precision Grader Blade is compatible with 2D and 3D machine control solutions — including CASE SiteControl grader solutions powered by Leica Geosystems — to deliver improved productivity, quality and efficiency in fine grading applications.

“This is built for those applications where contractors have always wanted the power and precision of a motor grader, but were unable to justify it based on size, access or cost,” says Jerry Hutkowski, product manager, CASE Construction Equipment. “It takes the large-frame CTL that many contractors already own and turns it into a powerful precision grading solution capable of working on sites where a larger machine isn’t practical or can’t gain access.”

Clay County, West Virginia Wins CASE Dire States Grant

CASE Construction Equipment has announced Clay County, West Virginia as the winner of the 2021 Dire States Grant. Representatives of the county will receive $25,000 in free equipment rental from CASE that will be supported locally by State Equipment

Clay County was awarded the grant to repair grounds and facilities that were initially damaged in heavy flooding in June 2016. More than 500 homes were destroyed in that event, and local resources that provided food and services to residents have been closed due to ongoing water and sewer issues. This includes the recent closing of the local Nutrition Center, as well as the continued flooding of local parks and recreational areas. The ongoing fallout has been particularly hard on the region, with business closings and no grocery store currently open in the county. FEMA estimated at the time that the county sustained more than $8.5 million in roadway damage.

PRIMCO Inc. Invests in the Right People, and the Right Equipment

Founded in 1968, Primco Inc. of Fort Wayne, Indiana has served its community for more than 50 years. Originally formed as a small, family-owned bridge contracting company, Primco has grown exponentially over the decades. Now Primco employs more than 135 people, and in addition to bridge construction and rehabilitation, Primco also specializes in concrete paving, structural concrete work, as well as general commercial concrete and site development. The company also works closely with Speedway Construction Products, which supplies concrete and other construction materials both for Primco jobs, and for other contractors throughout Northeast Indiana.

“My father started the business with another gentleman back in 1968, and we have grown from a bridge crew company to road and bridge,” says Todd Fredrick, president, Primco, Inc. “We do heavy highway, foundation work, sheeting work, piling and concrete road building—anything to do with that, any concrete along with that. We also do our own manufacturing of the materials that we need for our work.”

CASE SiteWatch comes standard for three years on all CASE heavy equipment with ProCare, standard on all CASE backhoes, and is available as an option throughout the entire CASE equipment line.

Ford Asphalt Company Expands Fleet with Next Generation of CASE Skid Steers

Ford Asphalt Company has provided commercial asphalt and concrete paving services to the St. Louis Metro area since the company was founded in 1975. Over the years, Ford has built a long list of repeat clients that continue to call on the company for quality paving work. In fact, more than 90 percent of the company’s work is repeat business.

Randy White of St. Louis-based CASE dealer Luby Equipment attributes this kind of longevity and success to positive leadership. “I think that it starts with the owner of the company (Bruce Ford) and how they treat their employees, and then that is reflected in their work,” says White. “It’s a people business. And when somebody at the top treats their people well, it’s just completely reflective of their day-to-day operations and work.”

CASE Unveils “Project Zeus” — the all-new 580 EV — the Industry’s First Fully Electric Backhoe Loader

CASE Construction Equipment introduces “Project Zeus” — the 580 EV (Electric Vehicle), the construction industry’s first fully electric backhoe loader. The power and performance of the 580 EV is equivalent to other diesel-powered backhoes in the CASE product line and provides considerably lower daily operating costs while also producing zero emissions — a motivating factor for utility and government contractors incentivized to work with equipment that leverages alternative fuels and lowers emissions.

City governments and municipalities will also benefit from the elimination of emissions for working in urban environments and close to other buildings/people, as well as the reduced noise generated by the equipment.
