ICUEE Product Preview

September 2013, Vol. 68 No. 9
Condux has developed the Gulfstream line of fiber optic cable blowers to meet a wide range of installation needs.

• CASE Alpha Series skid steer loaders: CASE recently introduced updates to its line of skid steer loaders that meet the federal Tier 4 Final emission standard with upgrades to four products in its Alpha Series line, including the SR175 and SV185 medium-frame skid steers. The SR175 boasts a 21 percent higher peak torque rise at 1800 rpm compared to the previous model, and goes from 60 to 67 gross horsepower, a 12 percent increase. The SV185 remains at 60 gross horsepower and has 7 percent more torque than the previous version.

• CASE F Series wheel loaders: F Series wheel loaders offer increases in fuel efficiency while delivering faster acceleration and quicker cycle times compared to previous E Series models. These models are available in standard Z-bar, extended reach and tool-carrier configurations. Case chose selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology for its F Series wheel loaders to meet Tier 4 Interim emissions standards based on the machine’s application tasks and power demands. The benefits of SCR technology are greater efficiency and reduced downtime due to the elimination of heightened fuel burn or diesel particulate filter (DPF) regeneration.

CASE also will showcase ProCare: a suite of product assurances that includes a three-year Advanced CASE SiteWatch telematics subscription, a three-year/3,000-hour full-machine factory warranty, and a three-year/3,000-hour planned maintenance contract on select 2013 new heavy CASE machines sold through equipment dealers, including full-size excavators, full-size wheel loaders and motor graders.

CASE will also feature its SiteWatch telematics, remote monitoring and data reporting program that provides customers with actionable information to help manage their fleets and optimize machine performance. This includes data related to performance metrics, idle-time analytics, scheduled maintenance intervals, machine health reporting and programmable security alerts.
