Case roll out first in a new series of wheelies


Case WX: The ROPS/FOPS operator’s cab fully meets all EU regulations, delivering a comfortable and safe working environment.The ROPS/FOPS operator’s cab fully meets all EU regulations, delivering a comfortable and safe working environment.Improved Comfort And Control

The ROPS/FOPS operator’s cab fully meets all EU regulations, delivering a comfortable and safe working environment. With automatic air conditioning, an air-suspended seat and completely adjustable controls, all operators will be able to find a comfortable working position, reducing fatigue and increasing productivity.

The viscous mounted and noise insulated cabin has ergonomically designed arm rests and foot pedals, glass panels have been designed to give excellent visibility to all sides of the machines. A rear view camera, fitted as standard, further enhances visibility to the rear.

Tinted safety glass, sun blinds and transparent rain protection above the front window enhance working conditions, while the automatic air conditioning maintains a comfortable in-cab climate for more productive work. A hot and cool box, plenty of storage compartments, a radio with USB support, a microphone for handsfree conversation, a front aux. port and a 12V auxiliary socket complete the operator’s comfortable workstation.

All travel functions have been centralised on the steering column, with other switchgear grouped for ease of reach. A new LCD multifunction monitor provides information for the operator and integrated diagnostic functions for service engineers.


Reduced Operating Costs

All three excavators have new long life bushings as part of their robust boom and arm design. These provide 500 hour greasing intervals for the WX168 and WX188 and 100 hour intervals for the WX148. Safety valves are standard on the main boom, and Case offers a handling kit including dipper arm safety valves, loading hook or eye and an overload warning system as an option.

Wide opening service access doors provide excellent ground level serviceability, with remote mounted oil and fuel filters along with remote grouping for grease points. A refuelling pump is easily reached from ground level and the machines have side by side radiators for maximum cooling efficiency. There is a removable net protecting the radiators, making it easier to clean the cooling pack in dusty conditions.
