Case Construction Equipment has upgraded its T Series backhoe loaders with new Tier 4 Final compliant engines. The vehicles also feature the new Case livery.
The new models achieve the demanding emissions standards with Case’s unique SCR-only solution, which ensures a powerful performance with outstanding fuel efficiency and no need for DPF or regeneration. The efficiency of the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) aftertreatment system has also been optimized so that Tier 4 Final standards are achieved without a diesel oxidation catalyst.
This reduction in the number of components has enabled Case to rationalize the engine layout. The aftertreatment system has been repositioned externally, providing better access to the engine, the electronic module and fuses. The new layout facilitates servicing, resulting in lower total cost of ownership. In addition to the new engine layout, the exhaust pipe has been moved to the right-hand pillar, improving visibility.
Case extends to the two bigger models, 590ST and 695ST, the availability of the new backhoe design with in-line cylinder geometry and inner ‘extendahoe’ introduced on the 580ST in 2016. Now customers can choose from the well-known Case boom with overlapping cylinders and outer extendahoe and the new in-line design on all three models of the T Series range.
The new styling and livery, which were developed in collaboration with CNH Industrial’s Design Centre, make a strong brand statement. The 2D Case lettering of the decals uses the same font as the brand logo for consistency, while the reflective white color makes the brand name and model number much easier to read from a distance. They not only increase the brand’s visibility on the machines; they are also consistent with the Case values of being direct and to the point. Furthermore, the new Power Abe metallic badge is proudly displayed on every machine, celebrating the Case brand’s rich heritage and looking forward to the future.
David Wilkie, director CNH Industrial Design Centre, explains, “Our aim with this project was, on the exterior, to create a design language that reflects solidity and precision, while giving a look specific to the CASE brand that reflects its history and its values and that is common to all models. On the interior design, our aim was to use our experience to improve the comfort and quality of life on board by the use of specially developed seat trim and materials. While the interior trim colors have been modernized to give a contemporary feel, we wanted to create a strong family feeling across the product line-up.”
