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.

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.”     

Creative, Customized Financing Plans Provide Operators With Cash Flow Flexibility

The construction market has rebounded in recent years, with continued strength projected through 2019 (as highlighted in the 2019 Annual Report & Forecast). Many fleet owners and managers have re-invested in their fleets to make up for previous years of extending life cycles as long as they could. Many others remain in a position today where their fleet requires upgrading/modernization — and we’re at an inflection point with technology where newer/current machines provide significant operational and cost savings advantages over machines that may be five or 10 years older.

On top of having equipment with leading technology, however, is the ability to maintain cash flow that allows for investment and re-investment into other areas of an operation. Whether that’s in people, marketing, or strategy development, those factors have an impact on whether companies thrive.

2019 Annual Report & Forecast Provides Optimism

CASE partners each year with Construction Equipment magazine to produce the Annual Report & Forecast, a quick recap of the year before and an in-depth look into industry confidence and intention heading into the new year. As Construction Equipment Editorial Director Rod Sutton comments in his opening article of the 2019 report, the industry anticipates positive movement in the new year.

“Transportation, nonresidential, and fleet managers scored last year as “very good,” and each forecast the same for 2019. The momentum begun in 2017 appears to be sustainable in these vocations. Home building and water infrastructure also expect 2019 to perform better, after each fell short of expectations in 2018. Respondents in the home building arena expect to move into “very good” territory this year; those in the water industry expect to move from an “average” 2018 to a “good” 2019.”
