Case renewal programme
First publishedin World Highways
During 2011 and 2012 Case Construction Equipment will renew up to 90% of its construction equipment lines, "providing customers with increased productivity, lower fuel consumption and reduced emissions." European customers will see the start of this process with a new generation of Case's tractor backhoe loaders, the T Series Construction King, and its Tier 4 Interim engine line-up.
The company will also show new and improved machines, including the 695ST backhoe loader, Tier 4-powered versions of the new 24.7tonne CX250C and 36.7tonne CX350C crawler excavators and a first European showing for the 821F wheeled loader.
Case equipment will utilise a combination of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to achieve a 90% reduction in exhaust particulate matter and near zero levels of nitrous oxides (NOx).
