CASE’s new CX160D and CX180D feature more efficient hydraulics
A Tier 4 Final engine for CASE's medium-size crawler excavators
CASE Construction Equipment is extending its new generation D Series crawler excavator offering in the earthmoving sector with the CX160D and CX180D.
These two medium-range machines, like the other machines in the new D Series, have CASE’s fuel-efficient Tier 4 Final (Euro IV) maintenance-free technology with no DPF. They offer the high productivity, comfort, safety levels and low running costs for which the previously launched D Series models are known.
The new D Series crawler excavators share the CASE Intelligent Hydraulic System of the previous new generation models. The improved D Series system have High Performance Hydraulics Control to boost controllability and smooth operation. The faster cycle times achieved with the more efficient hydraulics also boost profitability.
The new models deliver faster cycle times because of the new electronically controlled hydraulic pumps and larger main valve, which increase their productivity further. The new pumps and bigger valve improve the machine’s responsiveness, resulting in cycle times up to 12% faster than that of the previous generation. In addition, the new models deliver a greater lifting power.
The high productivity is further enhanced by the crawler excavators’ autonomy resulting from the high capacity fuel and AdBlue tanks combined with the machines’ fuel efficiency. Also, the AdBlue tank only needs to be refilled every 10 fuel refills, so that no time is wasted.
