Thanks to advanced design and engineering, CASE excavators deliver up to 17 percent more horsepower and save an estimated $10,000 per year from lower fuel costs and faster cycle times. Four minimum swing radius models excel at digging and lifting in the tightest work areas. CASE excavators range from 1.7 to 80 metric tons. These excavators are designed for high performance and durability. Whatever your job, CASE has an excavator that is right for you.
CASE C Series excavators use clean and efficient Tier 4 interim diesel engines. Equipped with cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) and a diesel particulate filter, the engine is capable of meeting emissions regulations without the need for additional diesel exhaust fluids. Automatic self-regeneration of the diesel particulate diffusor (DPD) ensures no loss of productivity, while low engine rpm, improved hydraulic pump control and five new energy saving systems boost fuel economy by up to 10%. A green economy gauge can be activated in the cab to inform the operator of the most economical operating mode setting for the machine, reporting fuel consumption in real-time.
ADVANCED ENERGY MANAGEMENT
Through the use of 5 new fuel saving functions, C series excavators speed up productivity and substantially improve fuel economy. The new systems include:
Boom Economy Control (BEC)
Increased fuel effi ciency during boom lower and swing operations.
Automatic Economy Control (AEC)
Improved fuel effi ciency when servo joysticks are in neutral position and the operator is not calling for power from the machine.
Swing Relief Control (SWC)
Carefully manages the hydraulic power distribution at slewing operations, to provide the most effi cient flow and pressure.
Spool Stroke Control (SSC)
Creates an automatic pressure adjustment during digging and leveling operations. It saves fuel, while improving controllability for the operator in fine digging operations.
Auto Energy Save (AES)
All C-series excavators also feature Auto Idle and Idle Shut Down systems. When activated, Auto Idle automatically lowers engine revs, whatever the throttle position, when the levers have been inactive for 5 seconds. Manually, Idle can be activated by a switch on the joystick. Idle shut down, when activated, shuts down the engine when there has been no activity for 3 minutes, resulting in additional fuel savings.
As part of the CASE Intelligent Hydraulic System all CASE C Series excavators benefit from improvements in performance and productivity. Lifting capacity is increased and cycle times have been cut. Individual operating weights are slightly increased to cope with the additional digging and loading forces, ensuring stable, consistent high production. Bucket and boom down regeneration systems feed hydraulic oil back to the supply side of the pump, reducing the requirement for engine power. The C Series excavators use the familiar working mode control from the B Series machines, making it easy for the operator to become familiar with the new models. The H and SP Modes provide a 5% boost when required for maximum digging ability. The new monitor in the C Series machines provides operators with the chance to pre-programme auxiliary hydraulic flow and pressure settings (option) for up to 10 attachments, providing rapid changeover and increased productivity.
FIRST CLASS OPERATOR ENVIRONMENT
The C Series cab is 7% larger than the previous models and uses a smaller top beam and no overlap in the front windows to offer improved all round visibility. Noise levels are reduced to almost automotive standards, around 70dB(A), while the operator has a suspension seat and fully adjustable levers as standard. Travel pedals require less effort, reducing fatigue for the operator. The ROPS/FOPS level 2 certifi ed cab sits on new suspension mounts. To reduces vibration for the operator and contributes to the lower internal noise levels. The cab has a powerful air conditioning system with 25% more airfl ow and an 8% increase in performance. New mirrors and a standard rear view camera, with optional side camera, improved 7” LED monitor inside the cab, providing the operator with a safe and secure working environment.
FULL COLOUR MULTIFUNCTION MONITOR
The standard 7” LED monitor provides all of the information that the operator needs at a glance. Easy to use buttons guide the operator through the screen functions and the monitor can be split to show the standard rear view, and optional side view camera images. Information includes working mode, travel speed, working lights, attachment choice, time and working hours, along with system data such as coolant and hydraulic oil temperatures, fuel level and the condition of the particulate fi lter and the auto-regeneration function. When selected, the ECO gauge displays the function of the various energy saving systems, allowing the operator to maximise effi ciency and save fuel. The monitor can be set to work in one of 20 languages, and is also used by service technicians to access onboard diagnostic functions.
