The new CX130D from CASE gets redesigned boom reduce stress
Small is beautiful, with the CX130D from CASE
CASE Construction Equipment is raising the stakes in the utility sector with the launch of its CX130D crawler excavator, one of the manufacturer’s new generation D-Series crawler excavators.
This utility machine has much in common with its larger cousins in the D-Series, such as CASE’s fuel-efficient Tier 4 Final (Euro IV) maintenance-free technology with no DPF.
The spacious cab has a fully adjustable workstation with a new air-suspended high-back seat for added operator comfort. The pressurised and iso-mounted cab keeps noise and vibration down, providing an operating environment among the quietest in the D Series’ class. The large multifunctional widescreen monitor with continuous rear view camera adds to all-round visibility.
Each machine is available with a new optional LED working light package that provides illumination similar to sunlight – and more than three-times brighter than halogen – allowing contractors to work around the clock.
The cab is certified for ROPS level II as standard on all models and a full range of optional front guards is available to ensure the operator’s safety in tougher working environments. The optional factory fitted travel alarm contributes to greater safety on the jobsite around the machine.
CASE’s SiteWatch telematics system enables the fleet manager to keep track of the machine and helps prevent misuse of the equipment.
The new boom and arm design reduce stress on the structure, improving reliability. The high resistance cast steel at the foot and at the end of the boom, together with the jointed steel cast part across the boom and the arm’s boxed section increase the strength and durability of the boom and arm. Reliability is further enhanced by the safety valves on the boom and arm cylinders with overload warning.
The new undercarriage design that has increased the dimension of components results in even greater reliability and durability. The new undercarriage one-side slope design ensures there is less material build-up between the frame and the track chain. The material easily slides outward during cleaning operation and the operator will save time cleaning the undercarriage.
