Case E Series excavators reloaded with a major evolution: CEG

The company introduced seven new E-Series excavator models, including two in new size classes, focused on improving the total operator experience in terms of performance and control to deliver productivity, even higher operator satisfaction and operational efficiency while reducing total cost of ownership over the life of the machine.

Case building equipment continues to turn heads with major deployments – hot on the heels of the introduction of the first Case Minotaur DL550 compact bulldozer loader, the manufacturer is completely reloading its entire line of excavators.

The company introduced seven new E-Series excavator models, including two in new size classes, focused on improving the total operator experience in terms of performance and control to deliver productivity, even higher operator satisfaction and operational efficiency while reducing total cost of ownership over the life of the machine.

These new excavators also represent an improved level of hydraulic performance and precision, increased engine power and responsiveness, extended service intervals and greater connectivity for streamlined fleet management and maintenance. According to the manufacturer, the new offering also includes one of the industry’s most extensive offerings of OEM-compatible 2D and 3D machine control systems to simplify the adoption and expansion of precision excavation solutions.

“Case E-Series excavators build on the powerful, smooth and responsive controls Case is known for, while adding all-new customizations and control configurations to enhance the operator experience,” said Brad Stemper, Head of North American Construction Equipment Product Management. of the case.

“The E-Series is both highly engineered for performance and built on a platform proven to withstand the heavy-duty jobs and tough working environments that excavators work in every day.”

The seven new models for the North American market include:

  • CX140E, 102 net hp, 28,900 lbs. operational weight
  • CX170E, 121 net hp, 38,400 lbs. operational weight
  • CX190E, 121 net hp, 41,000 lbs. operational weight
  • CX220E, 162 net hp, 52,000 lbs. operational weight
  • CX260E, 179 net hp, 56,909 lbs. operational weight
  • CX300E, 259 net hp, 67,000 lbs. operational weight
  • CX365E SR, 205 net hp, 78,600 lbs. operational weight

The new range replaces five key models in the Case excavator range, while introducing two new models: the CX190E and CX365E SR.

Dozer and long reach blade models are also available in some configurations, and some D-Series excavator models will remain in the Case product offering – next-generation versions of these machines will be introduced at a later date.

“The CX190E is a 41,000 pound machine that meets a very high demand for contractors in North America, and the CX365E SR represents something our partners have made it clear they want: a minimum swing radius excavator. of 3.5 metric tons or more class,” Stemper said.

“The size, power and performance of this machine in a small footprint will transform workflow and productivity on jobsites with space restrictions.

“Between creating a more comprehensive product offering and delivering one of the broadest offerings of OEM-friendly 2D and 3D machine control solutions, Case E Series excavators are designed to improve performance and reliability. efficiency of excavation companies of all shapes and sizes.”

Put more control and confidence in the workspace

Improving total operator control and experience is all about marrying the operator environment and overall machine performance, and all of this is coupled with the machine operator interface.

One of the most notable upgrades to the cab of the new Case E Series excavators is the 10-inch. LCD screen that provides even greater access and visibility to cameras, machine data and controls. This includes the ability to view the rear and side cameras at all times while accessing machine data and controls, ensuring optimum visibility and job site awareness. This includes the popular optional Case Max View display for even greater visibility and safer operation which provides 270 degree visibility around the machine.

The new display allows for enhanced control customization with five configurable buttons that can be set to the functions most used by each operator, including but not limited to fuel consumption, machine information, auxiliary hydraulics and emission controls.

The new hydraulic flow control balance for the hydraulic system, as well as the new attachment controls, are also controlled through this screen.

Case has also developed the operator comfort and ergonomics that were a hallmark of the D-Series excavators with a new suspended operator station that locks the seat and console together so that no matter the size of operator, they have the same experience in terms of orientation to armrests and controls. The console and armrest can now be further adjusted to suit operator preference.

Next-level engine, hydraulic power

Case excavators have always been known for smooth, responsive hydraulics thanks to the Case Intelligent Hydraulics System, but the addition of new FPT Industrial engines across the product line, along with new hydraulic system upgrades, deliver even more. of power and performance.

FPT Industrial engines offer greater displacement, horsepower and torque than previous models in the Case line (*some exceptions apply; CX140E horsepower is the same, CX300E displacement is not greater), which provides even more power and responsiveness to the operator.

Four new working modes (SP for Super Power, P for Power, E for Eco and L for Lifting) are available to set in a range of up to 10 throttle settings allowing operators to tailor performance to their work, and the new Eco reduces fuel consumption by up to 18% compared to previous Case excavators (varies by model and application).

The addition of FPT Industrial engines to the Case lineup brings with it the manufacturer’s heritage of innovative emissions solutions that are both maintenance-free and improve efficiency for the owner/operator.

The new Case E-Series excavators feature an innovative combination of Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC), Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) and Particulate Catalyst technologies that further deliver greater fuel efficiency, systems reliability and no lifetime after-treatment replacement or mechanical maintenance over time. The system features 13 patents that ensure efficient emissions compliance and performance in all working environments.

New hydraulic override capabilities also allow the operator to tune the performance and responsiveness of the machine to their liking. Case calls this hydraulic flow control balance, and it allows the operator to set up the arm, raise the boom, and oscillate the flow as he pleases. Now the excavator will be even more responsive and efficient depending on operator preference, according to the manufacturer.

Attachment usage has also been optimized with the ability to adjust hydraulic flow rates to specific attachment types via the new display, and set a maximum overflow for each attachment for optimal attachment performance.

Improved availability, responsiveness, lifetime ownership and operating costs

Along with advancements in lifetime service and maintenance, such as extended engine oil and fuel filter service intervals, Case has taken these machines even further into the world of fleet management. collaborative with the introduction of new connectivity and telematics capabilities across the product line.

Case achieves this with the new SiteConnect module and the new SiteManager app (iOS and Android). This app pairs the operator’s phone or device with the machine to enable remote analysis. Case-certified technicians then diagnose the condition of each connected machine through various parameter readings and error codes – and the technician determines if the problem can be solved remotely (for example, by clearing the codes or updating software) or if it requires a trip to the machine.

Case also leverages the SiteConnect module to further improve data and telematics performance, as well as collaboration between equipment owner, dealer and manufacturer. This enhanced connectivity allows the machine owner to share real-time machine information with the dealer and the Case Uptime Center in Racine, Wisconsin, at their discretion.

The SiteConnect module also improves the volume, flow and integration of data with the Case SiteWatch telematics platform for real-time monitoring, management of maintenance and service intervals, review of the use of the equipment and the overall registration of the machines.

And to show that Case fully supports this new line, every new Case E Series excavator comes standard with Case ProCare: a three-year Case SiteWatch telematics subscription, a full three-year/3,000-hour factory warranty and a three-year – one-year/2,000-hour scheduled maintenance contract. ProCare allows business owners to invest in new equipment while making owning and operating costs predictable for the first three years of lease or ownership.

Easier than ever to experience precision excavation

Case has also extended its OEM-friendly 2D, 3D and semi-automatic machine control solutions to an even wider range of models. This ensures that the optimal combination of machine and solution is installed and tested by Case-certified precision field specialists. It also simplifies the acquisition process and allows technology to be bundled with the machine purchase, combining finance or lease approval, rate and payment in one package. It also allows the owner and operator of this machine to run faster with machine control.
