Case roll out first in a new series of wheelies

Case roll out first in a new series of wheelies

For the past few years, the Case wheel loader range has comprised of 6 models in the ‘2-Series’. Originally made in Germany at a facility in Berlin, the company decided to consolidate production of its wheeled excavators at its Italian facilities a few years ago.

The wheel excavators are now made at the Case facility in San Mauro and developed by engineering in San Mauro and Berlin. Presumably to keep as close as possible to one of the largest markets for wheeled excavators.

Rumours have been circulating for some time about a new series and Case has announced the first three models in an improved range of wheeled excavators.

Case roll out first in a new series of wheeliesNew Generation. New Name

With the introduction of latest technology engines and advances in computer and hydraulic technology, it is to be expected that the new models represent a significant upgrade on the existing series.

Case has also changed the series designation. The existing models are the 2-Series, whereas the new models are named the ‘8-Series’. This renaming is designed to re-establish a connection with the heritage of the CASE 88 series (from the beginning of the 90s up to 2002) produced in Crepy, France.

The first models in the new generation comprise three models - the WX148, WX168 and WX188. These benefit from the power and performance of a three-pump hydraulic system, with a dedicated swing pump, a new engine speed/working mode selection dial, a heavy-duty undercarriage and an improved operator’s cab.

The revisions result in improved operator comfort and ease of operation, excellent service accessibility and reduced ownership costs.
