Case increases fuel efficiency and maneuverability in new CX245D SR


Case Construction Equipment has added a minimum-swing radius excavator to its D Series line-up. The new CX245D SR features a compact counterweight and modified boom placement, providing increased digging and lifting power, and is capable of maneuvering well in confined working environments.

With an operating weight of 26 tonnes and a 119 kW Tier 4 Final/Stage IV engine, the excavator offers greater performance capabilities than the previous model.

A combination of selective catalytic reduction and diesel oxidation catalyst technologies helps maximize uptime and performance – all with minimal maintenance. With no diesel particulate filter (DPF) or DPF regeneration, the system’s economical use of AdBlue (2.5-3% of fuel consumption) is that more impressive as the tank only needs to be refilled every five fuel refills.

A new electronically-controlled pump, a larger control valve and multiple sensors achieve faster cycle times, and combined with the intelligent hydraulic system – with five different controls – the machine’s hydraulic power is maximized, while minimizing fuel losses.

In the iso-mounted cab there is a Bluetooth radio to provide hands-free functionality for the operator, while a 7in widescreen monitor offers real-time access to machine performance parameters such as fuel consumption. Visibility is aided by rear and side view cameras as standard.

Optional LED working lights provide lighting three-times brighter than halogen products – allowing operators to work productively in darkness.
