Power And Control

With the three-pump hydraulic system, one pump is totally dedicated to the slew function. This enables continuous movement thereby allowing the operator to multi-function the controls for smooth, productive digging performance.

The more powerful hydraulics are managed by the Case Intelligent Hydraulic System control, which offers a single CPU for improved controllability and simplified diagnostics.

An automatic power increase in travel mode ensures rapid travel between working areas while improved orbitrol steering provides easy to use, effortless steering.

A new engine speed with new working mode selection dial provides a single point of contact for the operator when setting the machine to work. This dial delivers low idle speed, Lift 1 and 2 modes for dedicated lifting work, Eco working modes 1, 2 and 3, plus a Heavy Mode for maximum excavating performance. There is also a dedicated road travel mode for rapid relocation between sites.

The Case Intelligent Swing (CIS) allows the operator to adjust upper structure slew speed to suit a variety of work sites. The machines offer four swing acceleration settings and three deceleration settings, adding to the wheeled excavators’ versatility and making the machines easier to operate in confined urban situations.

In keeping with the tradition of Case equipment, the latest wheeled excavators have an extremely robust chassis with the option of a dozer blade, a dozer blade and stabilisers, or stabilisers front and rear, for total balance and a solid working platform.

The machines drive through a new fully automatic hydrostatic powershift transmission that is directly mounted to the rear axle for maximum ground clearance. With new heavy duty ZF axles, the excavators deliver high travel speeds of up to 35 km/h, yet also provide total control on site through a creep speed function.

The axle design offers good drawbar pull and features an auto locking system for maximum stability when working without stabilisers. Multi-disc wet brakes and axle oil change intervals of 2,000 hours deliver reduced operating costs and reassuringly powerful braking from full speed. Customers can choose single tyres, twin tyres or super wide tyres for maximum flotation off-road.
