2020 Annual Report & Forecast Shows Optimism for Year Ahead

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 721G Waste Handler Reduces Downtime and Fuel Costs, and Improves Sustainability for Northeast Cartage

At Northeast Cartage LLC, a single stream recycling operation in northeast Pennsylvania, the core goal is to run a clean operation with minimal environmental impact. Every truckload of recyclable waste arrives as a jumbled mass of cardboard, paper, various types of cans and metals, and plastic and glass containers.

The job of Northeast Cartage is to take those collected materials, separate them and convert them into a saleable product. The first piece of equipment to handle the material that comes into the facility is the CASE 721G waste handler, a specially outfitted and guarded wheel loader designed for use in waste and recycling applications.

CASE Receives Four 2019 Top 100 Awards from Construction Equipment Magazine

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.

Making a Difference with Dozers

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 Launches New Purpose-Built Landfill Configuration for 2050M Dozer

CASE Construction Equipment introduces an all-new purpose-built landfill configuration for its 2050M dozer, providing enhancements and guarding that make it suitable for work in the harshest of landfill environments. The specialized design was tested and refined in large-scale landfill operations throughout North America in advance of the launch.

“Our product specialists, and each test site, spent considerable time monitoring machine performance and guarding,” says Nathaniel Waldschmidt, product marketing manager, CASE Construction Equipment. “Additional enhancements have been made, and what we’re coming to market with now is a powerful landfill dozer that will provide extreme performance and productivity, as well as protection from the unique working conditions of a landfill.”

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.”

CASE Announces New C Series Motor Graders

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the all-new C Series motor graders. Two new models deliver a wide offering of new weights, horsepower ratings and feature-driven grading solutions for municipalities, as well as small-to-mid-size site prep, road-maintenance and general construction businesses. These new motor grader models feature a variety of standard features designed to maximize productivity and performance. Available in both standard and All Wheel Drive (AWD) configurations, the 836C and 856C achieve Tier 4 Final compliance with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) engine technology that increases fuel efficiency, keeps exhaust temperatures down and eliminates the need for regeneration.

The new models include:

CASE Introduces All-New TV450 Compact Track Loader

CASE Construction Equipment introduces the all-new TV450 compact track loader (CTL), a new 10,610-pound vertical-lift machine with a rated operating capacity of 4,500 pounds at 50 percent tipping load. The newest and largest CASE CTL ever built features an industry leading 9,188 pounds of breakout force, and optional high-flow (3,450 psi at 39.5 gpm) and enhanced high-flow (4,000 psi at 35 gpm) hydraulics for high-power attachments such as mulching heads, stump grinders and cold planers.

“The CASE TV450 provides lifting and earthmoving performance that will meet the demand of general contractors, landscapers, roadbuilders — and the 4,000 psi with enhanced high-flow makes this an excellent platform for attachments,” says Deborah Townsley, product marketing manager, CASE Construction Equipment. “It’s a powerful, large-frame loader that handles heavy materials and still provides the advantages of low ground pressure for jobsites where finished lawns and underground utilities may exist.”
