CASE Construction Equipment debuted its brand new range of C Series mini excavators, and gave a sneak preview of the new G Series wheel loaders, as well introduced its new livery, at Samoter 2017 – CASE’s 175th anniversary year. The layout of CASE’s stand at the internationally renowned exhibition in Verona from February 22-25 has been deliberately organised into sectors (urban construction, infrastructure, quarrying and recycling) to reflect the brand’s focus on customers, making it even easier for visitors to find the offer for their business. An excavator simulator also gave visitors the opportunity to experience what it is like to operate a CASE machine. They were also able to participate in a driving simulator contest to uncover the CASE logo, with each day’s fastest operator being rewarded with a CASE surprise.

The new mini excavators line-up

CASE’s brand-new range of C Series mini excavators debuted at Samoter. There are currently six models available (from 1.7 to 6 tonnes), with more models to be added during 2017 and 2018.

The new C Series is a technological landmark for the mini excavator market, including more features, higher performances, maximum comfort and improved safety.

Gaston Le Chevalier de la Sauzaye, CASE product manager for mini excavators, commented: “The mini excavators are essential machines for the construction industry in Italy and Europe. With the new CASE C Series, we satisfy our clients’ main requests: exceptional productivity, comfort and safety.”

Tier 4 Final backhoe loaders make their debut

CASE also exhibited its new upgraded T Series backhoe loaders. This range now complies with Tier 4 Final regulation on exhaust emissions thanks to the exclusive CASE SCR-Only solution that ensures powerful performances with remarkable fuel efficiency, and eliminates the need for diesel particulate filters, diesel oxidation catalysts or regeneration.

A European ‘sneak preview’

Visitors to Samoter were also treated to a ‘sneak preview’ of the new G Series Wheel Loaders before the official launch in the coming months. They were able to catch a glimpse of the new machines but to have all the technical details and to test drive them, they will have to wait for the official European launch in the coming months.

Alain De Nanteuil, EMEA product marketing manager, CASE wheel loaders, says: “I can’t go into details yet but the new G Series wheel loaders are a huge leap forward, with respect to the already excellent present machine generation which is already highly rated for its reduced fuel consumption and ruggedness. These will be the most silent CASE wheel loaders ever, with new and revolutionary features that will make them the leading players in the industry.”

The entire CASE range on display

In addition to the new mini excavators and Tier 4 Final backhoe loaders and the new wheel loaders, machines from across CASE’s extensive portfolio were on display. This includes the CX210D tracked excavator (with NLC narrow carriage), wheel loaders, skid steer loaders and compact track loaders. An Astra HD9, together with the new G Series wheel loader, will be displayed to show the perfect duo for quarry applications.
