Case CE has redesigned its mini excavators from the ground up
Case Construction Equipment is launching a new C Series mini excavator line at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017, with six models ranging from 1.7-6tonnes. These have been designed to meet customer needs and the firm claims that the range offers outstanding productivity, comfort and safety.
Features include easy-to-read digital cluster that provides useful information and warning lights, the standard Engine Start Limitation (ESL) anti-theft system and the hydraulic Quick Coupler for fast attachment changes. The CX17C and CX18C can work efficiently with the greatest agility in the tightest spots. They feature hydraulically-retractable tracks with inner routing of hydraulic hoses. When the tracks are retracted, the machines are less than 1m wide. The CX17C features a Zero Tail Swing design, which ensures there is no risk of hitting an obstacle with the back of the machine when swinging. It can work effectively and safely in the most confined spaces.
Case said that the powerful hydraulic flow delivers 5% higher efficiency than the previous models. The auto shift-down function on the CX17C, which optimises traction and speed and the joystick-controlled auxiliary hydraulics enable the operator to get the job done even faster.
The CX26C and CX37C are available with a choice of long and short arms. For the CX26C maximum dig depths are 2,645mm and 2,420mm, while for the CX37C dig depths 3,440mm and 3,135mm. They are available with additional counterweights and rubber tracks. Steel tracks are also available on the CX37C.
The CX57C and CX60C are the top of the new range and feature the best instrument cluster on the market, according to Case. They offer a multi-colour 14.5cm LCD touchscreen. The convenient hands-free system with USB and AUX ports, SD card reader and 12V power outlet make it easy to integrate most modern mobile devices.
