Case’s new mid-excavator marvels unveiled at bauma
Case's new Tier 4 Final CX75C SR and CX80C midi-excavators are at bauma
Case says the CX75C SR and CX80C, its new and claimed market first Tier 4 Final emissions standard midi-excavators, offer more performance power and greater operator cabin comfort than previous models.
Tier 4 Final requirements are said to have been met through the use of Cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (CEGR) combined with a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) system. Case says there is no requirement for the two new mid-excavators to have a costly Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), so there is no need for active filter regeneration that consumes fuel.
The CX75 SR and CX80C have completely redesigned cabs, meeting ROPS and FOPS Level II safety standards. Interior space has been increased, as the cab is 7% wider than the previous CX75 and CX80. A larger glazed area is also said to improve visibility to the front of the machine. Rear visibility has been improved with the option of a rear view camera.
For specific applications that require additional safety, Case offers two different front screen guards and a certified lifting and handling kit to lift objects safely.
The CX75C SR and CX80C are said by Case to generate 9% more hydraulic power than their predecessors, and 148litres/min of pump flow compared to the previous 136 litres/min. Cycle times are said to be reduced and digging force improved by up by 3% with the new midi-excavators. In order to maximise uptime, the new machines feature a larger 120litre fuel tank, said to be easily fillable with the optional electric refuelling pump. Quick and easy maintenance is said by Case to be another advantage of the two new models.
With a choice of three boom systems, (mono-boom, swing-boom and offset-boom), four auxiliary hydraulic control systems (either hand or foot controlled), three track options (rubber or steel shoes) and two dipper-stick lengths, Case says its C Series mid-size excavators are effective in a wide variety of applications.
