CASE Construction Equipment introduced the 4-wheel drive W9 in 1958 — today the company offers a full range of compact and full-sized wheel loaders for all applications, from road building to recycling centres, from urban construction to quarries. CASE celebrates the 60th anniversary of its wheel loaders with a dedicated display at Intermat 2018. CASE Construction Equipment celebrates this year its 60th anniversary of wheel loader production, which started with the W9, the first CASE integrated four-wheel drive wheel loader introduced in 1958. The W10 and W12 four-wheel drive models and the front-drive W5 loader soon followed. The W series grew through the 1960s and 1970s, including the mammoth 15-ton W26, introduced in 1968. It was CASE’s first articulated loader and the largest wheel loader offered at the time. The W series loaders all featured cabs mounted on the front half of the machine.
