Case Construction Equipment has just announced that it is to launch an all-new C Series mini excavator line with six models ranging from 1.7 to 6.0 tons. These are the first products of the new range, which will be extended with additional models during 2017.
Gaston Le Chevalier de la Sauzaye, CASE Product Marketing Manager for mini excavators, commented: “The mini excavator is an essential product line for construction businesses: they account for the biggest industry volumes by far at 53,000 units for Europe and the market size is increasing each year. With the new C Series range, we deliver what our customers tell us they need most from this product line for their business: outstanding productivity, comfort and safety.”
The brand new C Series mini excavators are the first products resulting from the brand’s strategic alliance with HHI. The 5.7 and 6.0 ton models being launched today are produced at one of the partner’s facilities, while the Case Excavator Hub in San Mauro, Italy, assembles the four new models below 5 tons for markets worldwide.
The proven engines and hydraulic system deliver more power, raising the machines’ performance. Five of the six new models comply with Tier 4 Final emission standards.
The new mini excavators are loaded with features that will make the operator’s work easier, more comfortable and more productive. They include the new easy-to-read digital cluster that provides useful information and warning lights; the standard Engine Start Limitation (ESL) anti-theft system; the hydraulic Quick Coupler for fast attachment changes; the electric refuel pump and many more.
Safety is a priority with CASE and the C Series makes no compromise in this respect. Safety features include ROPS, TOPS and FOPS compliance, emergency stop switch, travel alarm and object handling kit. The safety valves prevent loads from slipping in case of hose failure. The pilot system with accumulator enables the operator to put the attachment down safely even when the engine is off. The double-flange rollers minimise the risk of detracking and improve stability. The outstanding all round visibility and rear view camera further enhance safety on the jobsite.
The range will be showcased for the North American market at ConExpo in Las Vegas this March 7-11.
