CASE Construction Equipment showcased its new accessible backhoe loader at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, designed to support workforce inclusivity and provide operators of all mobility levels with an opportunity to work in construction equipment operation.
The machine features a purpose-built elevator and accessories that allow the operator to be elevated into the cab and workstation. The operator positions the elevator chair near the ground via a pair of external joysticks in a manner that allows them to easily transfer into the seat. Those same joysticks then raise the operator into the cab where they transition into the backhoe seat. The chair is then tucked away into a position that does not obstruct machine operation.
