CASE Showcases Methane-Powered Concept Wheel Loader, ProjectTETRA, at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020

CASE Construction Equipment is featuring the methane-powered ProjectTETRA wheel loader at CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2020, highlighting the manufacturer’s commitment to sustainability through alternative propulsion solutions. It is presented at the show alongside the industry’s first fully electric backhoe loader, the CASE 580 EV — showcasing a commitment to expanding alternative fuel solutions for equipment beyond compact machines to heavy equipment.

ProjectTETRA was first introduced at Bauma 2019, taking its name from the Greek number four, which refers to both the four hydrogen atoms present in the chemical formula for methane, as well as the tetrahedron shape of the methane molecule.

CASE Previews New Technology Enhancements for G Series Wheel Loaders

CASE Construction Equipment previewed all new enhancements at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 to its G Series wheel loaders that feature increased technology to improve production and the overall operating experience. These latest enhancements (standard or optionally fit based on feature) are anchored by a large touchscreen display that serves as the command center for the new integrated onboard payload system, control customizations, improved telematics and streamlined operating parameters.

“Wheel loaders are well-suited to incremental improvements in technology and operation that achieve considerable cost savings and productivity gains,” says Andrew Dargatz, product marketing manager, CASE. “The technology advances incorporated into G Series wheel loaders through the new operator interface simplify operation, streamline equipment reporting and maintenance activities, and give each operator more tools to improve overall performance and efficiency.”

CASE Enhances SiteWatch Telematics Platform with New Dashboard and Simple Navigation

CASE Construction Equipment will launch the next generation of its SiteWatch telematics platform in April 2020 with an all-new dashboard, more intuitive navigation and new overview sections that spotlight critical information without requiring the user to search extensively for the data. CASE SiteWatch comes standard for three years on all CASE heavy equipment with ProCare, standard on all CASE backhoes, and is available as an aftermarket installation kit throughout the entire CASE equipment line.

SiteWatch complies with the Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) 2.0 telematics standard, ensuring that the solution is compatible with fleets of all shapes and sizes.

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.
