Power meets control with Case’s new dozers
Case says its 3 new M Series dozers have leading power and control features
Case says its three new M Series dozers being introduced at bauma – the 1150M, 1650M and 2050M – offer a 10.5% fuel saving, and 19% increase in productivity, compared to the previous generation of machines, due to their claimed best-in-class engine reaction.
With operating weights from 13-20tonnes and like other M Series models, the three new dozers are powered by fuel-efficient, Tier 4 Interim FPT engines, using a proven Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology.
The 1150M and 2050M with their new SCR engine benefit from a 9% power increase, to 100kW and 168kW respectively, while the engine in the 1650M develops 16% more power, at 120kW. This increased power output is said by Case to allow the engines to run with less rpm while developing increased torque, providing a boost in drawbar pull and pushing effort.
The M Series dozers use highly-efficient hydrostatic transmissions to deliver a claimed class-leading drawbar pull, of 213.5kN for the 1150M, 311kN for the 1650M, and 374kN for the 2050M. With a completely revised transmission layout, the dozers are said to benefit from improved oil cooling, particularly useful in hotter climates, yet deliver a constant power transfer under load.
The cab has been positioned 100mm further forward on the M Series dozers to allow maximum visibility of the blade and improved machine balance, while noise levels within the cab have been reduced to just 76dB(A). The electro-hydraulic joystick controls are said to offer easy integration with most common GPS and laser machine guidance systems. The machines are available with a pre-installation kit from the factory for Topcon, Trimble and Leica blade control systems.
All three machines can be ordered with a choice of XLT, WT and LGP tracks, and the 2050M is also available in LT configuration for maximum traction in heavy dozing.
