Case has Interim Tier 4 to a T
First publishedin World Highways
Case Construction Equipment says it has improved performance of its T Series range of tractor loader backhoes, with the adoption of Tier 4 Interim compliant engines, an automatic ride control system, faster backhoe boom positioning and a choice of transmissions.
The changes are said to have resulted in lower model fuel consumption, reduced emissions, increased operator comfort, higher breakout force and greater lift capacity.
All T Series machines will now be powered by a 3.4litre turbocharged engine including cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR). This Tier 4 Interim compliant motor produces 97hp (72kW) for the 580ST, rising to 110hp (82kW) in the 590ST and the range-topping 695ST models. CEGR is said by Case to allow a cleaner burn within the engine, while delivering superior horsepower. The company says this results in faster response under load and a fuel saving of up to 14% compared to previous models.
Two transmission choices are available for the 580ST and 590ST, Powershuttle and Powershift. The 695ST will be equipped with the Powershift transmission as standard.
