Case Construction Equipment has introduced a new backhoe design with in-line geometry, with in-line cylinder geometry and inner extendahoe of its 580T
The new design provides customers the flexibility to opt for tailormade backhoes that suit their specific needs. It will be launched at the upcoming bauma 2016 construction expo.
The new in-line geometry, which maintains the conventional Case backhoe S shape boom, ensures that the effort is evenly distributed over the entire length of the boom, resulting in high stress resistance. In addition, the narrower frame of the boom provides better visibility of the working area at the back of the machine.
Operators looking for exceptional breakout force and great reach will find their ideal solution in the new in-line boom. With 5,520 daN and 4,100 daN respectively, the 580ST featuring the in-line boom design delivers great breakout force both at the bucket and at the dipperstick – and it reaches as far as 6,647 mm from the swing centre.
With the outer extendhoe, Case is ideal for tough external working conditions since the sliding part never touches the soil, and the components that do are protected against impact and material accumulation. The design with overlapping cylinders reduces the 580ST’s overall boom transport height to just 3.5 m, making it easy to transport the machine with no waste of time and fuel. More time is saved with the patented integrated hydraulic quick coupler, which allows the operator to change backhoe attachments from the cab with the simple flick of a switch.
Case at bauma 2016
The company will have a formidable presence at the construction show bauma 2016, scheduled to be held in Cologne in April.
Case is expected to display its offering for the urban construction, road building, aggregates and recycling applications. Spread across a 3,216 sqm stand to each market segment, Case will draw a range of visitors to its custom made products – Iveco vehicles for the construction industry, with the New Eurocargo 4x4 on its first public appearance, the Daily 4x4 steel 3-way tipper, the Trakker 6x6 3-lateral tipper and the Astra HD9 8x6 rear tipper. New features of the CASE® SiteWatchTM telematics system will also be introduced at BAUMA 2016.
An extensive range of F Series wheel loaders will be on display across the stand, with units in the aggregates, recycling, road building and urban construction areas. The latter will also showcase the brand’s ranges of skid steer loaders and mini excavators, which are particularly well suited to this type of application.
Three of the machines on the stand – a wheel loader and a skid steer loader from the Road Building area, and a compact wheel loader from Urban Construction display – will also star in a lively show that will entertain visitors on the stand at regular intervals throughout the BAUMA 2016 exhibition.
In addition to showcasing a range of new and improved products, the Case team will be present at the show to educate visitors, as well as enlighten them on servicing ootions.
The provision of complete business solutions includes tailored financing packages, warranties, maintenance programmes, dealerships, cost of ownership and a range of technical services.
