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

site through a creep speed function.
The axle design offers good drawbar pull and
features an auto locking system for maximum stability
working without stabilisers. Multi-disc wet brakes
a n d
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.
