Lowering Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) with G Series Wheel Loaders

At the core of the all-new G Series loaders from CASE is the concept of lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Combining productivity enhancing features with operational efficiencies, wheel loader owners have never been able to get more work out of a machine more efficiently than with the CASE G Series.

TCO is not an exact science. Every single application is different. But understanding how a machine can impact TCO should be a critical piece of the buying process. It also becomes integral to operator training once a machine is selected.

CASE SR270 Named to Rental Magazine’s 2016 Editor’s Choice Awards

CASE Construction Equipment’s SR270 skid steer has been recognized as part of Rental’s 2016 Editor’s Choice Awards. The awards were based on innovation, utility for the rental market, and audience engagement online at ForConstructionPros.com/Rental.

The SR270 is the industry’s largest radial lift skid steer, with a rated operating capacity of 2,700 pounds at 90 horsepower. The Tier 4 Final model features best-in-class torque, breakout force and standard auxiliary hydraulic flow, as well as one of the industry’s widest cabs and best-in-class 360-degree visibility.

TechTalk: SV340 Enhanced High Flow Hydraulics

Enhanced high flow auxiliary hydraulics on the CASE SV340 (35 gpm at 4,000 psi) allow for increased hydraulic horsepower and strength for running high-flow attachments such as cold planers and mulcher heads. Its long wheelbase, robust construction and greater rated operating capacity make it an excellent platform for running a wide range of large skid steer attachments.

Go with the Flow: A Primer in Skid Steer Hydraulics

Rarely does a skid steer owner use only a bucket. The auxiliary hydraulic capabilities of a skid steer are one of the features that make it extremely versatile, and having a good understanding of the output you will need is important when you spec a machine. How much power is too much power, and how much power do your attachments need? In this article we’ll look at common hydraulic systems and how each matches up to attachment demand. Just working with a bucket and pallet forks? No problem. Running snow throwers and wood chippers? You’re going to need a higher flow.

Attachments drive the decision

CASE, Central Machinery Work with Team Rubicon to Improve Wetland Habitats at Turnbull Wildlife Refuge

CASE Construction Equipment and Central Machinery provided equipment and product/training support to veteran-led disaster response organization Team Rubicon for use in training 10 new participants in its heavy equipment training program at Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge. The training included critical project work removing man-made islands in low-lying wetland areas to improve the habitat for birds and waterfowl.

“We’re tearing down these islands and smoothing it out to return these wetlands to the way Mother Nature intended them to be,” says Steve Fox, engineering equipment operator, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. “It opens up the water and creates more of a natural habitat. Team Rubicon has been great. This is something that’s going to take us a few years to complete – they’ve helped us get farther along than we would be – it offers them a training area, and we’re getting good work done on the refuge.”

Carrier Considerations for Hydraulic Breakers

Hydraulic breakers—and the carriers that run them—are critical pieces of equipment on any job site, and the technologies incorporated into both have improved quite a bit over the years. But even the most modern, high-performance breakers can increase the wear and tear on an excavator or other carrier machine. Matching a breaker attachment to the right machine is essential for maintaining maximum production and safety on site as well as getting the most out of your equipment investment—here are several considerations to help match the right carrier to your breaker attachment.

Carrier
The primary machine considerations for breaker usage are the operating weight, tipping load, length of the boom and arm, overall lift capacity and hydraulic flow characteristics—namely operating pressure, hydraulic flow rate and auxiliary flow rate.

Shoring Engineers Completes Shoring and Excavation at new Long Beach Civic Center

For 50 years now, Shoring Engineers has helped excavate and secure the foundational structures of some of Southern California’s most iconic new construction, including The Los Angeles Cathedral, Staples Center and L.A. Live. The company is celebrating its 50th year in business by capping off the shoring and excavation work for the new Long Beach Civic Center, working as a subcontractor with primary developer Clark Construction.

The project, which totals nearly 600,000-square-feet divided among three structures for both the City of Long Beach and the Port of Long Beach, includes a new parking garage below grade with two levels of parking. The garage itself requires a total depth of excavation of around 28 feet, with the mass excavation of the project totaling 120,000-cubic-yards.

CASE, Folcomer Equipment and Groff Tractor Work with Team Rubicon to Improve Erosion Control and Natural Habitats at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge

CASE Construction Equipment, Folcomer Equipment and Groff Tractor provided equipment and product/training support to veteran-led disaster response organization Team Rubicon for use in training 10 new participants in its heavy equipment training program. The training included course work, and then practical operation in laying riprap for erosion control and spreading topsoil to encourage growth of the natural habitat for wildlife at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) in Cambridge, MD. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Blackwater NWR protects approximately 28,000 acres of tidal marshlands and woodlands for the benefit of wildlife species.

Team Rubicon is training its members in the safe use and maintenance of heavy equipment for its disaster response operations. Folcomer Equipment provided a SR240 skid steer, and Groff Tractor supplied a CX75C SR excavator to the effort. The partnership between CASE, Team Rubicon and the National Wildlife Refuge Association dates back to November 2015 when the three organizations began working together to complete training and project work. Other refuge training projects have been completed in Texas, California and Washington, with additional training taking place at sites throughout the country. Eventually, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service hopes that about 100 Team Rubicon members will be available to refuges for heavy equipment work and hundreds more available as volunteers for service projects across the country.

CASE Beefs up D Series with new CX490D and CX500D Excavators

CASE Construction Equipment has introduced two new crawler excavators to its D Series lineup: the CX490D and CX500D. These new models are designed for heavy excavation work and replace the company’s previous 47-metric ton excavator the CX470C. Each model is built to provide significant operational gains, including cycle times up to 10 percent faster, improved responsiveness and multifunctional controls, and greater fuel efficiency. An electronically controlled hydraulic pump and larger control and solenoid valves boost breakout forces, increase lifting strength and improve responsiveness.

D Series models offer more standard features than previous CASE excavators, simplifying the buying process and making them extremely versatile and operator friendly. All CASE D Series excavators provide peace of mind and lower total cost of ownership through CASE ProCare™.
