CASE Construction Equipment recently launched its next generation of CTLs and skid steers with the introduction of the B Series — five CTLs and eight skid steers spanning radial and vertical lift patterns, as well as numerous horsepower and size classes to provide contractors with the equipment choices best suited to their operation.
New CASE B Series loaders feature a completely redesigned operator interface, including new left- and right-hand posts with simple ignition, push-button operation, easy throttle control and intuitive switches for all core machine functions.
An all-new eight-inch LCD multi-function display serves as the command center for the machine and includes the industry’s only backup camera visible in a split screen display with machine data. The camera is operational in both forward and reverse and enhances the B Series’ industry-leading visibility with even greater jobsite perspective and awareness. It also provides operators with the most feature-rich operator experience ever found in a CASE CTL or skid steer, including new electro-hydraulic controls, “Creep Speed” function, an automotive-style information display with improved fault codes and troubleshooting, as well as Economy Mode and other engine protection settings.
CASE CTLs and skid steers feature industry-leading 360-degree visibility — enhanced by the new backup camera as well as a cab-wide rearview mirror. The low entry threshold and large front window provide excellent visibility to the front of the machine and down to the attachment. Large side windows and a large curved rear window allow for great sightlines to the sides and the rear of the machine. Rear visibility is further aided by low-profile rear hoods, and an extremely low-profile H-Link on vertical-lift models.
CASE features one of the widest skid steer and CTL cabs in the industry, providing additional space for improved operator comfort. Joysticks on electro-hydraulic models have been designed with a narrower, more comfortable grip, and closer switch layout and a smaller head size for easier operation.
CASE has been producing skid steer loaders for more than 50 years, and new B Series CTLs and skid steers leverage that experience to provide extremely powerful breakout forces, a range of auxiliary hydraulic options that allow each machine to run hundreds of attachments, and extremely stable wheel and track bases that allow operators to work with confidence across any type of terrain. The full range of vertical- and radial-lift machines provide excellent options for every application from concentrated groundwork and grading to truck loading and material handling.
The CASE B Series provides either standard, high-flow or enhanced high-flow auxiliary hydraulics with pressures up to 4,000 psi for running high-capacity hydraulic attachments.
Daily checks are made simple with all regular service points and checks easily grouped at the rear of the machine. Fleet managers can further expand the simplicity of maintaining B Series models with the addition of an optional CASE SiteWatch™ telematics subscription that provides insight into operational data, service intervals and total machine performance — and CASE dealers can be granted access to that data to further build proactive service and support plans around each machine.
